Berlin highlights for the alternative traveller

If you’re not a fan of the typical trip, there are lots of Berlin highlights for you to enjoy as well. Take good note of the following!

  • The clubs: One of the things that turned Berlin into a city taken by the youth is its varied and impressive nightlife. If clubbing is your thing, don’t miss unique and liberal Berghain; Watergate, next to the river; or Weekend, at the 12th and 15th floors next to the TV tower.
  • Kreuzberg: this lively neighbourhood is full of little art galleries, designer’s shops and unique bars and cafes. One of the most delightful Berlin highlights!
  • Spreepark: An uncanny and beautiful abandoned amusement park with a turbulent history that will delight the fans of obscure landscapes and stories.
