Overview

When the hated Berlin Wall was finally breached in 1989 thousands congregated joyfully at Brandenburg Gate to celebrate a new era—and ever since Berlin has reveled in its role as capital of the reunified Germany and one of Europe's most intriguing cities.

Illustrated with nearly 200 vivid, up-to-date photographs and detailed, full-color maps, National Geographic Traveler: Berlin is an indispensable guide to this sophisticated metropolis, from the massive Reichstag building to the complex of museums and gardens at the former royal palace at Charlottenburg; from the chic shops of Kurfürstendamm to Frederick the Great's sumptuous palaces at Potsdam.

After a detailed introduction to Berlin's unique history, food, land, and culture, author Damien Simonis explores each of the city's diverse neighborhoods. Among the sights: the fabled, tree-lined boulevard called Unter Den Linden; the Tiergarden, a large central park offering green relief; and the world-class museums clustered on Museum Island.

Special sidebars give comprehensive information on such topics as the Berlin Wall; the city's Jewish community; and the famous Christmas markets. Another favorite feature: mapped, guided tours that include a walk through Red Berlin and a drive through Mecklenburg's lake district, plus an "Excursions" chapter on the best day trips out of the city. In addition, a thorough Travelwise section provides recommendations for hotels and restaurants in all price ranges and in all areas. If you're bound for Berlin, National Geographic Traveler is your passport to a memorable trip.
