At an age of 800 years Berlin is one of Europe's younger cities, however it exhibits an unique and stunning history. Science, education and culture have always been areas of expertise among the people of Berlin and their rulers, hence traces of the most famous and impressive figures, from Alexander von Humboldt to Marlene Dietrich and from Bertolt Brecht to Knobelsdorff, Max Liebermann and Hildegard Knef can also be found everywhere while sightseeing.
Sightseeing in Berlin will fascinate you. The city is widely versatile and has many faces. Some find it fast-paced, colourful and always surprising. Others shy a bit away from the hustle and bustle and the surliness which is intended as friendliness. However, these contrasts are precisely that which makes Berlin so appealing. No matter if you like it or not, Berlin will not let you go. Turn a stroll through the city into a journey of discovery. A vibrant international city with delightful people awaits you.
You will not only be impressed with Berlin, but also entertained: experience world-class theatre in numerous venues throughout Berlin, elaborate revues at Friedrichstadtpalast or the ensemble at the Komische Oper which, by the way, is located right next to The Westin Grand Berlin.
