To enjoy some authentic German beers, The Lemke boasts an extensive list of local beers for guests to try. Sit outside and have a bottle or pint of beer for $4-8. For more of a beer garden experience, head to Schönwetter in Mauerpark.

Many sites in Berlin are free to visit. Head to Brandenburg Gate and take in its magnificence. Sunset is a great time to see the gate as the pink sky illuminates the towering structure and statue on top.

 

Visiting the Reichstag is also free. Make sure to secure a reservation, as the site is a popular attraction for visitors. The Reichstag invites guests to venture to its top floor and look out over Berlin in its iconic glass dome. The Berlin Wall is a must-see as well, with nearly a mile of stunning and moving artwork displayed on every panel of remaining wall.

 

As a city with a rich history, Berlin contains several memorials in honor of the lives lost in World War II. The Jewish memorial and Sinti and Roman memorial are open for visitors to walk through and reflect on the city’s darker past. Both memorials are thoughtfully laid out to mirror the emotions felt by the victims.

 

To learn more about Germany during World War II and to see one of the former sites of the Nazi Regime, visit the Topography of Terror. This site not only showcases the layout of the former buildings but also includes an indoor exhibition on the SS and police and their war crimes.

 

 

Coffee
