The City of Berlijn

Berlin, capital city of Germany with 3.5 million inhabitants, is the largest city in the country. Although Berlin has a long history, it is the recent past that marks the city. The Second World War and the post-war period were important periods in the city’s history and development. Present-day Berlin is a lively, buzzing city but also a city of contrasts. Whether you like clubbing, chic dining, visiting museums, shopping or classical concerts, Berlin has something for everyone. Discover Berlin at your own pace with the Berlin Welcome Card!
