Do you want to visit impressive attractions? You’re looking for the most famous shopping miles or enchanting boutiques for the perfect shopping trip? Or you’re interested in fascinating buildings of art and culture? We’ve compiled a selection for you.

  • Reichstag

    Federal government building
    The Reichstag building is one of the most visited attractions in Berlin. It’s glass dome is a huge draw – and not only for tourists. Sir Norman Foster designed the dome consisting of about 3 000 m2 of glass. As you would expect for such a popular attraction, it takes a little patience to get in, but it's absolutely worth a visit and if you make it all the way to the top, you’ll have a panoramic view over Berlin.

  • The Story of Berlin

    An interactive museum
    This unique museum is second to none. The Story of Berlin takes visitors on an interactive journey through almost 800 years of Berlin's history. There are 23 individually designed and themed rooms, featuring state-of-the-art multimedia technology. One particular highlight is the guided tour through the original nuclear fallout shelter, which is underneath the museum. Leaves a lasting impression, even on children!

  • Badeschiff

    The joy of swimming on the Spree
    This floating pool on the Spree River, complete with sand beach and open-air bar has long been an emblem of Berlin’s creative and hip. Join the locals who come after work for pure relaxation or celebrate with concerts and parties in a very special atmosphere. The Badeschiff is one of the coolest meeting places for Berlin’s "it" crowd and it comes with a panoramic view and holiday feeling.

  • Siegessäule

    National monument
    One of the best known landmarks of Berlin stands directly adjacent to Tiergarten. The Victory Column (Siegessäule) topped by Victoria, the goddess of victory. It was originally opened in 1873 as a national monument to commemorate the Prussian/German victory over Denmark, Austria and France in what is now called the Platz der Republik in front of the Reichstag building. The Nazis felt it was in their way, so they moved it to Tiergarten in 1938. It still stands there today at the centre of a large traffic circle, the Grosser Stern. By the way, if you’re feeling ambitious you might want to climb the 295 steps to the observation platform; the view of Berlin makes it worth your while.

  • Tempelhofer Feld

    City oasis
    Since Tempelhof Airport was decommissioned in 2008, the only things to land at the airfield today are paragliders. The former transport hub has been redesigned into a beautiful park – a perfect retreat from the commotion of the city. The disused airport aprons and runways are now a popular meeting place for Berlin locals – great for having a barbecue, playing games or catching some rays. Hiring a bike at Tempelhof is the best way to enjoy the park, soaking up some tranquillity at the heart of Berlin.

  • Alexanderplatz

    Centre of eastern Berlin
    Alexanderplatz is one of the most popular meeting places for both young and old. Centrally located in the eastern part of Berlin, it’s only a short way to Unter den Linden, the Hackesche Markt, the Museumsinsel and Oranienstrasse. The square itself is home to one of the most famous world clocks. It was inaugurated in 1969 and shows all 24 time zones. The solar system over the clock revolves once every minute.

  • Holocaust Mahnmal

    More than 2 700 steles make up the wave-shaped field. Its abstract form is designed to encourage visitors to contemplate. There is an information point below the field of steles with exhibitions documenting the persecution and extermination of European Jews in a striking manner. In the lobby visitors receive information regarding the historical context before entering the four rooms which address the topic from both historical and personal viewpoints.

  • KaDeWe

    Western department store
    Germany’s most famous department store was opened in 1907 by Adolf Jandorf. It’s a mecca for those seeking luxury. Fashion directly from the catwalks of Paris and exotic fruits from the South Seas in the delicatessen floor. And if shopping and strolling isn’t enough for you, treat yourself from head to foot in the spa and beauty lounge. There are thrilling department stores and not so exciting ones – the KaDeWe is clearly in the first category.

  • Trippen

    Unusual. Interesting. And gorgeous. Those are the words used to describe the shoes from Trippen "made in Berlin". Their trademark is the two-piece sole. More than 350 shops around the world offer the collection of these Berlin shoe designers. But no one carries a greater selection than the flagship store in the Hackeschen Höfen. The shoes there are presented like works of art and it’s not unusual to see a celebrity admiring them or buying a pair.

  • Herr von Eden

    Stylish suits
    Here it’s men who are more likely to find everything they could wish for. The suits are extravagant but wearable; the colours and materials are first rate. The Herr von Eden collections are truly something for top stylers – for example, you’ll see Jan Delay wearing Herr von Eden at one of his performances. They’ve now added a collection for women as well.

  • Sessùn

    French fashion
    Playful, romantic, a bit on the sexy side. The appeal of the French label Sessùn lies in its girlish forms and premium materials. Berlin has the only shop in Germany. The shopping experience is enhanced by the spacious interior design and light colours. Très chic.

    The best of shopping
    270 shops on four floors! The Mall of Berlin sells everything that any shopping fan could ever wish for, including luxury labels on the ground floor, fashion boutiques, young fashion concept stores, jewellery, shoes and accessories. The covered promenade with seating is particularly beautiful. A fantastic plan for a rainy day!

  • Mauerpark

    Flea market
    You still haven’t found any souvenirs besides plastic TV towers and GDR pedestrian crossing figures. Then you definitely have to check out the flea market in Mauerpark. Among the rummage and second-hand clothes, young Berlin artists set up their stands and you’ll have a blast searching through jewellery, clothes, photographs and adorable knickknacks. During the summer this flea market turns into a veritable festival. Every metre is occupied by people grilling, playing Frisbee, making music and doing whatever they feel like. It’s hard to imagine this park was once the death strip along the Wall. Sundays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

  • Lala Berlin

    Big city couture with heart
    It all began with a pair of knit wrist warmers that the one-time MTV VJ Leyla Piedayesh noticed at a flea market. Only a few weeks later she presented her first knitwear collection at Premium 2004 in Berlin. Lala Berlin uses only superior materials such as cashmere, silk and soft cotton. Combine these with unusual patterns and voilà, you have a Lala Berlin collection. This dreamy fashion is available at the store in Berlin's Mulackstrasse and in 60 other shops worldwide.

  • Bikini Berlin

    Something for everyone
    Hip, modern and diverse – the Bikini, with its beautiful interior design, is the epitome of Berlin style. Shoppers can browse the many clothes shops here and let themselves be inspired by the latest fashion trends. Beautifully crafted items from local artists also make the perfect gift for loved ones back home.

    The reception complex of the last surviving Berlin train station remaining from the first generation has been restored and now houses a nearly 10 000 m2 gallery showing modern art since 1996. Here you’ll find works by names such as Joseph Beuys, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.

  • Bode Museum

    Museum of sculpture
    The Bode Museum on the Museumsinsel is nearly entirely dedicated to sculpture and unique in all of Europe. There are 64 halls displaying 1 700 large- and small-scale sculptures. It's a must to enjoy a coffee in the lobby so you have time to feast your eyes on the Baroque architecture of the Wilhelmine Period with its domed ceiling. And when the weather is good, try taking a walk around the rest of the Museumsinsel, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

  • Astor Film Lounge

    Premium cinema
    Definitely the business class among Berlin cinemas. Filmgoers sink deep into the soft leather seats, their feet up on a comfortable stool. It’s an unforgettable experience when the film plays, the Champagne flows and the six-course meal is served to you at your seat. There’s even no need to find a parking spot; the cinema’s valets will take care of that for you. And before we forget … the cinema shows first run and select films as in other premium movie theatres, of course.

The name would be more appropriate for a sweet shop or a trendy club, but you’ll find neither here. Cookies Cream is a trendy vegetarian restaurant in Kreuzberg.

There was a time when only women worked in this Italian restaurant in Berlin-Mitte – Bob’s your uncle and the once nameless restaurant had a name: Mädchenitaliener (roughly ‘Italian place where the girls work’). That’s not the case anymore but the name stuck. Men now work behind the open oven, conjuring up super tasty dishes. This place is a must for everyone who visits the capital. During the summer you can get a great seat outside and start the evening off just right with prosecco on raspberry purée and mint. The antipasto misto platter is a great starter and the constantly changing pasta dishes are pure poetry. My recommendations are the tagliatelle al limone with scampi and mint, and a really unusual type of pasta with fresh figs, fennel-salami and pine nuts. Make sure to book a table so you can finish the day on the right note after your extended shopping tour through Berlin Mitte.

When it’s nice and warm, you should take a trip to Pfaueninsel (‘Peacock Island’). This nature reserve is the ideal place for walks and for observing the many free ranging peacocks. The castle on Pfaueninsel is a wooden structure originally built for the Prussian king Frederic William II and his mistress Wilhelmine Enke. You should visit the interior rooms of this romantic castle: the original furnishings are still well-preserved.
