City Guide



Introduction to Berlin

With its copious amounts of historical venues and cultural artefacts, Berlin has rightly claimed back its capital city status. Berlin is the biggest capital city in Europe, but after the devastation caused to the East from the war, it has the lowest number of inhabitants. The amount of construction in Berlin is at first alarming, but once you surpass this initial shock you can see the beauty that the city holds. Due to its continuous development, prices in Berlin are amazingly low and you can buy a beer for as little as 1€. Although there is technically an area in Berlin called 'Mitte', there are generally several city centres. Alexanderplatz, Zoologischer Garten and Friedrichstrasse are big enough to be capital cities on their own.
