If you are wondering where to spend a short vacation in Europe as a backpacker for a city break holiday, then Berlin and Munich could be the perfect options. In fact this short city break will offer a lot in terms of entertainment and culture. These destinations offer inexpensive accommodations, are well connected by good transportation systems and have great museums and sightseeing. Let’s discuss both these cities individually:
Berlin is the capital of Germany and the best destination for a short, casual and cool city break. You can explore so much in this city from nightclubs to bars, restaurants and historical attractions. There is an amazing night club, right by the river, known as the Watergate club. It is known for its techno music, but also offers other genres of music. A cruise on the river Spree offers splendid views, making it a perfect excursion after a big night out. You can take this riverboat cruise right after your night club experience is over.
For those of you who are interested in visiting the historical attractions in Berlin, take a trip to the East side gallery or head to the Checkpoint Charlie. These places offer insights and a specific part of Berlin wall that kept changing year on year with local’s graffiti.
