What to see in Berlin

Berlin is arguably the most important city in Europe for those of you interested in Twentieth Century history, and the scars and the stories of totalitarianism are all around you. Added to that Berlin also has one of the most vibrant arts and music scenes on the continent, with parties nightly and in any number of outlandish locations, and exhibitions of new artists drawn to the city from across Germany and beyond.

Even if you’re not in town for those crazy, heady days of Love Week, Berlin is the European home of techno and other assorted electronica, and every week there are parties across the city that will blow your mind. Ask at the Circus Hostel, at the reception or down in the bar, for tips of what’s going on in the city that night.

Finally, Berlin has not offered much (compared to Munich at least) in the field of gastronomy, but it can lay claim, via its numerous Turkish immigrants, to being the birthplace of the Döner Kebab.

They are better here than anywhere, trust us, and no trip to Berlin is complete without one, three in the morning stumble to whichever Imbiss is closest to fill your face with meat, bread, salad, and sauce that will run down your chin…
