Why go to Berlin?
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.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
