Berlin is a huge city in Europe; one of the biggest in fact. I shouldn’t even have to explain that there are a few must do activities here for people visiting for the first time! Let’s take a look at some of them so you can add them to your itinerary:
Take in the Atmosphere
This isn’t anything expensive or fancy, but it’s something that everybody who travels to Berlin should do. Simply sit back and take in the atmosphere. Find a bench, and soak it up. Better yet, take a walk around some of the neighborhoods and see how different they are! If you love doing this, you’ll love doing some of these eco-friendly activities while you’re there too.
Head to the Open Air Cinema
There are 5 open air cinemas you can choose from in Berlin, many of them playing films in English. There are snacks and drinks available, and the film will usually be played from around the time the sun begins to go down. Make sure you leave plenty of time to arrive so you get a good deckchair.
Do Karaoke in front of a Huge Audience
Fancy your singing skills? Think you could make it big? Or maybe you just like to sing? You can do karaoke in front of an audience of 1000 people at Mauer Park. It’s held every Sunday, so go on down and see if you can impress them – if you’re brave enough!
Learn All About the Berlin Wall
You can’t travel to Berlin without learning about the Berlin wall – it just shouldn’t be allowed! Go on a memorial tour and you’ll learn all kinds of things, even about people who jumped from their apartment windows at an attempt to gain freedom.
Go on a Free Walking Tour
Free walking tours are abundant in Berlin, and it’s a great way to see attractions in an efficient way. Forget creating your own itinerary, just turn up at one of these tours! If you want to learn more about the free walking tours available, the hotels in Berlin will have leaflets and be able to tell you where to go.
Get Drunk and Play Ping Pong
Dr. Ping Pong in Berlin is without question one of the most unique bars you can go to. It’s no secret that Berlin’s nightlife is out of this world, but this is one place you should definitely visit. There’s nothing like getting drunk and having a game of ping pong. It gets intense towards the end of the night!
Eat Currywurst After a Night Out
So, you’ve had an amazing night out in Berlin and you’re hungry. There’s only one thing for it…Currywurst! This ketchup and curry powder covered sausage might not sound like your cup of tea, but it’s worth a try. People all over the city enjoy currywurst as an on the go snack, and it’s been around for years.
