IN A NUTSHELL
Throughout their city’s chaotic history, Berliners have kept a firm eye on the future. Today, there are few places that feel as modern. A vibrant contemporary art and design scene spills out of the galleries and into cafés, parks and public spaces across the city. People flock from across Europe to the jazz clubs and dance raves; beer halls across the city throng with trendy hipsters and affable locals. Berlin seems built on the idea that the most exciting thing is the thing that’s happening right now – and it’s infectious.
You can explore the city by foot, bicycle or use the extensive subway called U-bahn.
