Berlin is such an amazing city which will surprise you with something new each time you visit. Below, I will try to list my favorite things that I have experienced during my last visit to Berlin. I hope you will enjoy reading it!

1. VISIT KÖNIGIN ELISABETH (ABANDONED HOSPITAL)

Berlin has many abandoned buildings and many people come to Berlin just to see these. Konigin Elisabeth Hospital is one of them. It’s opened in 1843. The graffiti on the hospital walls will amaze you. Book this local guided abandoned places tour!

2. JOIN OPEN AIR KARAOKE IN MAUERPARK

If you are in Berlin on a Sunday, you should visit Mauerpark when there are public karaoke performances in the park. Overcome your fears and get on the stage to sing a song. I am sure you will have many moments to remember. There is also a flea market where you can find second-hand clothes, vintage bags, and jewelry. See local Triple tours & experiences in Berlin here.

4. REST BY THE LANDWEHR CANAL

After a long day of walking through Berlin streets, the banks of Landwehr Canal is the best place to take a rest. You can also sit on grasses, smoke or drink there with other people. Find locals who can show you Berlin.

5. GET TO THE HILL OF TEUFELSBERG

Teufelsberg is a hill made of rubble that covers an under-construction Nazi military-technical college. There was a spy station on the hill, that was used by the NSA during the Cold War. It’s one of the popular abandoned places in Berlin, enjoy the lovely view of Berlin. See abandoned places tours in Berlin.

6. CYCLE AROUND TIERGARTEN PARK

Rent a bike and go to Tiergarten which is Berlin’s greenest park. Be careful, the park is so huge that you can get lost there! But definitely, it’s one of the best places to relax and enjoy the greenery.

7. VISIT BRANDENBURG GATE AT NIGHT

If you google “Berlin”, you will probably see the Brandenburg Gate so don’t forget to give it a visit, it’s worth seeing. It’s even more beautiful at night. If you are lucky, you can see some light shows too. See more on the history tour of Berlin.

8. CHECKPOINT CHARLIE: TAKE PICTURES WITH U.S. SOLDIERS

Checkpoint Charlie is the crossing point between East Berlin and West Berlin during the Cold War (1947 – 1991) It’s a must see place if you are interested in the history of Berlin.

9. GO TO A TECHNO CLUB IN BERLIN

Berlin is still the house of techno music in Europe. You can find many techno clubs around the city. Some of them are in modern buildings, some of them are in abandoned places by the river. If you would like to explore the nightlife of Berlin with a local, check out the local tours in Berlin.

10. TAKE A SELFIE IN FRONT OF THE BERLIN WALL
