Berlin - a fabulous, diverse city to explore

84%
Found this guide helpful

I live in central London, and love exploring other cities, Berlin feels like a mix of London and New York-with diverse neighbourhoods, and a surprise round every corner. The first thing I love to do is spend a day or two on the tourist bus- getting off at every stop allowing at least an hour at each location seeing all the 'must see' things then my real trip begins... walking and exploring a new city, Friedrichsain is an amazing district with the Astra Kulturehaus complex right next to Warschauer Strasse station-an extraordinary centre of workshops and venues to stroll around,this complex is neighboured by Simon Dach Strasse and the lovely roads leading up to the market in Baxhagener Platz. On a sunny day the perfect place to be is either along the river [walk the south bank to spree park or take the boat tour and explore museum island] or head north and enjoy the beauty of Friedrichshain Volkespark and the quiet neighbourhood of Prentlaur Berg. Berlin is a beautiful,friendly and fun city...try travelling in a different direction each day...ENJOY
