Berlin, Germany
Berlin has a very chequered history, but this simply makes it all the more intriguing. So many of the biggest moments of the 20th century emanated from the German capital, from the rise of Nazi Germany to the fall of the Berlin Wall. The city doesn’t shy from this, but instead embraces the history from which it is formed, and invites you to do likewise. Indeed, Berlin is not frantic but it is definitely bustling. The great Brandenburg Gate is a remarkable historical symbol of Germany, first of World Wars and then the reunification in 1990. The huge famous pillars are topped by an inspiring statue of Quadriga, a winged goddess of victory piloting a horse-drawn chariot. The Reichstag parliament building is an excellent combination of new and old Berlin, a fantastic imposing building topped by a remarkable glittering glass dome which offers excellent views of the city centre. There are also sections of the Berlin Wall which can be visited at the Berlin Wall memorial, as well as the dramatic Holocaust memorial. Married alongside numerous churches, art galleries, parks and museums, you are certainly never without something to do in this energetic, dynamic city.
