Berlin is a great city with many local neighbourhoods. The history of the city over the last 100 years is fascinating as well as disturbing and there is a lot to see, visit and amaze you. The city is also very new following unification of both East and West Germany at the end of the last century where there has been rapid and fantastic development to make this city a fitting capital of the new Germany. The integrated transport system makes getting around a pleasure where you can traverse the city both over and underground with ease.

JonnyBerlin's City Tips

  • English is spoken widely across the city -but more so in the west. Great to practice your german in the east of the city.
  • Checkout the local berlin beers -some surprising discoveries
  • Check out authentic german food. Meat, meat and more meat -fantastic!
  • Check out the travel passes to make your trips around the city inexpensive in comparison to other major capitals in Europe.

    One of my favourite places in the city. A green oasis in suburban Berlin. The place was destroyed in WW2 but you can get a sense of the grandeur by looking around carefully. I sat here with thunder clouds clapping in the distance and it was truly eerie. I felt I was getting a sense of history of WW2 being delivered by the weather - the Russians weren't advancing as suggested by the thunder!!!........so I made use of one of the numerous good quality cafe/restaurants!.

    Old fashioned gentile atmosphere. The decor is fantastic- sort of turn of the century furnished. The place is laid out over three rooms so if it looks busy there will be space inside. The service was first class. So what about the food - breakfast, brunch and food throughout the day. Totally recommend.
