The Best Sights in Berlin

Berlin is one of the most exciting cities in Europe.  While it is steeped in history it is also a very modern city that is rapidly changing while you read this information.  Because Berlin is complex and the best sights are varied we have broken them into categories.  Some sights fall into more than one category and we have done our best to cross reference these.  Below you will find a breakdown of the categories and a list of which sights are included.  If you have not made it to Berlin yet, now is the time to go.  See this exciting metropolis as it evolves into one of the great cities of the 21st century.
