If you are looking for a way to discover this fascinating city, a food tour Berlin is a great way to do so. Berlin is a city of contrasts, which has been at the center of world events several times in the last century. Especially its status as the capital of the Third Reich and the division of the city by the Berlin wall during the Cold War Era are unique parts of Berlin’s history. Today, Berlin is the second most populous city in the European Union and largest German city with a population size of 3.7 million. As the German capital, it is also a political and cultural hotspot worthy of a visit. Furthermore, Berlin is an intercultural melting pot where people from approximately 190 countries live, work and also party, as Berlin is world-renown for its diverse nightlife and festivals. One such festival is the Berlin International Film Festival (Berlinale) which is considered to be the biggest publicly attended film festival worldwide.
A food tour Berlin will allow you to visit some of Berlin’s most iconic sights. The most famous one is probably the Brandenburg Gate which symbolizes not on the tumultuous European history but also the unity and peace which Europe ultimately achieved. Just north of the Brandenburg Gate is another of Berlin’s well-known sights, the Reichstag building. Built after the unification of Germany in 1871, it has housed the German Parliament for a good amount of time, only interrupted during the Third Reich and the following division of Berlin and Germany. Today it is the seat of the Bundestag, the modern German Parliament, once again. Another must-see sight is the Fernsehturm (TV tower) at Alexanderplatz. At 368 m it is one of the tallest structures in the EU and can be seen from most of the central city districts. Visitor more interested in the cultural sights of Berlin have to visit the Museum Island which, true to its name, is home of five museums and a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Tiergarten, Berlin’s biggest park, with its Siegessäule (Victory Column) in the middle is also worth a visit. Berlin is also a great city to go shopping in. The Kurfürstendamm is Berlin’s premier shopping street and home to a variety of luxury stores.

With its wide variety of sights and activities, Berlin offers something for everybody.
