No other city in Germany can match Berlin for the sheer number of attractions and diversions it offers. The city is particularly rich in museums (170 of them at last count) and you could build your entire trip around visiting them. But Berlin the living city is fascinating wherever you go, filled with historic monuments, gut-wrenching memorials, picturesque parks and lakes, famous avenues and riverside promenades, and lots of new architecture. In fact, Berlin has more new buildings than any other city in Europe. And, the building—or rebuilding—continues apace, so that some parts of Mitte, especially along Unter den Linden and near Museum Island, are still giant construction sites and will remain so at least until 2016.
One thing to note: There is a great deal of construction still going on in Berlin, both above and below ground, as formerly divided city continues to knit itself together. You’ll notice this especially along Unter den Linden and around Alexanderplatz.
