Despite its fabulous nightlife, Berlin’s appeal isn’t just limited to the dark hours, and there is an endless list of things to do in Berlin regardless of the time.
The city is home to a plethora of beer gardens, relaxed outdoor cafés, and much-loved plazas and parks. While spending time at a beer garden is not as much a way of life in Berlin as it is in Munich, the gardens still fill up with a casual, diverse crowd hoisting hearty steins and spending many happy hours in the sun.
Berlin’s parks, which brim with things to do in the spring and summer, are scattered all over and give the city its reputation as a green city. Much of the city’s older buildings were destroyed during WWII, but the stunning landmarks that remain serve as a lasting reminder of Berlin’s history.
There are also countless places for shopping, from temples of consumption overflowing with designer labels to budget-friendly flea and antique markets, shopping malls, bargain stores, and everything in-between.
