Things to do

Walk along remnants of the Berlin Wall, see the Reichstag, take in the grandeur of a Prussian palace, visit Checkpoint Charlie or stand in the very room where the Holocaust was planned. Berlin is endlessly fascinating, and the past is very much present wherever you go.

However, if that isn't up your street, it's not all history and culture. It has been said that Berlin is the true city that never sleeps. (Forget New York!) There is a trendy and unique club scene in Berlin, from tiny basement clubs to canopied beer and cocktail gardens. The city's vast spectrum caters to every taste, budget and age group.

Weather

The weather in Berlin is very similar to the UK, just with less rain! In May you can expect it to be warm and sunny, but always take an umbrella just in case!
