A list of Berlin's best

Berlin is home to more waterways than Venice and Amsterdam combined. The mix of beer houses and culture make it the perfect vacation spot on your German tour. I spent a couple of days exploring Berlin and had a great time. As USUAL I had a 'to see' list as long as my arm but I did manage to do a good portion of them. Shall we?

Tiergarten

Like a walk? Tiergarten is a perfect place considering there are 520 hectares of manicured gardens and statues to gawk at. The most notable being the victory column, you can climb the 280 steps to the top to get some beautiful city views. It's only €‎2.50 so a steal really!

Berliner Fernsehturm

Germany's answer to the Burj Khalifa or CNN tower. It's also a really great way to orient yourself on a map as it's visible from almost everywhere in the city. Sadly, it did not fit into my travel budget this time around as my plans were so flexible, but how can you go wrong with panoramic skyline views from 200m above?  

Price: 29.50

Holocaust Memorial 

I'll be honest, 5 minutes of being there and I was ready to book it out as quickly as possible. I felt very tiny and trapped in the maze of concrete, the further in that you walk the more enclosed the space becomes. The memorial has received a lot of backlash for glossing over the reality of what transpired. There is a lack of information/context but it definitely plays on the mind. It's worth visiting but not one for those who suffer with claustrophobia in enclosed spaces.

Nikolaiviertel

Such a gorgeous little part of Berlin. It's set back just off the river and is a heritage area with restored original buildings and cute curly alleyways. The biggest thing to see is the St Nicholas church. But it's also perfect to stroll around with a coffee and there a million and two photo opportunities! Get snapping :).

Brandenburg Gate 

Berlin's only historical city entrance gate also doubles as a stunning architectural build. Germany decided I didn't need to walk through the gates as it was blocked off for maintenance work, love that. But it was still really pretty to look at from a distance haha.
