A capital in step with the times – always new, always Berlin!

Discover Berlin’s vibrant, cosmopolitan and creative vibe

Tourists, talents, technology, and tolerance shape the rhythm of the city which is dynamic and welcoming, tolerant and trendy, diverse and creative. A US magazine called Berlin “the place to be” and encapsulated the thing that fascinates both Berliners and visitors. No other city has such a moving history, no other city has changed this fast – and reinvents itself constantly.

But exactly what is it that actually makes Berlin so attractive? It is the diversity, the contrasts and the sheer inexhaustible potential of this capital city to consistently fire the enthusiasm of its visitors from all over the world. People are excited by the mixture of history and Zeitgeist, the broad spectrum of art, culture, music, entertainment and shopping facilities.

On average, 500.000 guests visit Berlin each day. Half of them come to the German capital for a second or third time. And many who come as tourists think about moving here. Berlin has a magnetism over young, creative, well-trained, and productive people.

New App “Going Local Berlin“ shows the real Berlin

visitBerlin launched the app „Going Local Berlin,“ especially for those Berlin visitors who come to the city yet again. For the first time in an app, all twelve Berlin districts and their unique highlights are the focus. The free app offers visitors tips for orientating themselves in the city’s many diverse neighbourhoods, together with tips for discovering new aspects of Berlin. Initially, 60 neighbourhoods with more than 600 tips are presented. They were personally selected by visitBerlin staff and in cooperation with the districts themselves. In addition, the app offers a tour of each district that’s also available as a video and gives insight into the atmosphere and the highlights of that part of the city. The tips are organized into categories such as “Must See”, “Hidden Places” and “Eating and Drinking”. app.visitBerlin.com

Brochure: “Going Local“ presents unknown places

The tourist guide also suggests that visitors get to know the city of Berlin off the beaten track. Introduced are the little-known sights of Berlin and insiders’ tips for each district as well as 12 fascinating walks, all waiting to be explored by visitors.

Turn your city break into a microadventure 

Berlin: Into the wild

Fly to Berlin. The airport has an excellent train station. Are you adventurous enough to take the first departing train you see, with zero planning, and jump on it until you reach the countryside? 

Keep an eye out of the window until you like the look of the scenery. Then make your decision, jump off the train at the next station, and look around at your home for the night. What happens next will depend upon where you have alighted from the train. Germany has masses of empty space and woodland so it's usually easy to find a peaceful spot. 

Eat local, sleep on a hill, be spontaneous!  

If, however, you prefer something more prescribed than just following your nose (although that's not the point of this idea), then pick a deliberately non-touristy small town such as Königs Wusterhausen. It's just a normal, small town which is exactly what I want when I go exploring - I'm less interested in tourist highlights than getting a feel for normal life somewhere different. There are plenty of nice woods and lakes nearby. 

Level of Difficulty: Medium (it's actually easy, but the boldness makes it harder).  

What to pack: Warm clothes (check the weather forecast!), hiking shoes, woolly hat, headtorch, raingear, sleeping bag, mat and bivvy bag. Take food and water just in case there are no shops where you exit the train. 

Best time to go: late spring / early summer.
