Multicultural, innovative
and colourful are just a few
of the adjectives that spring
to mind when thinking of
Berlin. Everything you see
in this city hides a secret
which is ready to be uncov-
ered.
While walking through the
streets, if you look carefully,
you will notice that most of
the monuments, the parks,
the roads and even open air
spaces try to convey a piece
of Berlin’s controversial his-
tory.
With this guide we want to
introduce you to the most
interesting places that you
absolutely must see.
We start with a brief history
of the city, it may seem bor-
ing, but be assured that it’s
very important to be aware of
the past in order to better ap-
preciate some of the sites.
The survival guide that
comes next provides you with
the most important informa-
tion about hostels, public
transport and other places
you might need to go.
Then we cover different sec-
tions. Culture is an impor-
tant part of Berlin and we
have highlighted the best bits
along with an excellent guide
to the museums and art gal-
leries.

Cafés and restaurants can be
considered one of the most in-
teresting aspects of the city, as
they mirror its multicultural-
ism. In Berlin you will find ev-
ery kind of food from Turkey to
China, from Italy to North Eu-
rope.
Nightlife is another important
feature, young people here have
a wide selection of clubs, bars
and pubs, so you’ll be spoilt for
choice.
Even shopping lovers can sat-
isfy their needs, not only in the
shopping area of Ku-dam, but
also thanks to the opportunities
that the city provides for vin-
tage shopping and flea markets.
During the warmer seasons it’s
very enjoyable to spend an en-
tire day in one of the various
outdoor areas of the city: Tier-
garten, Wannsee and Tegeler
See. Last but not the least you
will also find a piece of advice
about the best guided tours both
on foot and with other means of
transport.
So, don’t miss the oppor
tunity to discover Berlin, espe-
cially if you have a low budget.
Follow our suggestions and you
won’t be disappointed!
The earli-
est mention
of Berlin in a
title deed. In the 13th cen-
tury, itinerant merchants
founded the trading posts of
Berlin & Cölln near today’s
Nicholaiviertal. A profitable
medieval trade route, the
Ascanian margrave of Bran-
denburg decided to amal-
gamate the two towns into
one for political and security
purposes in 1307.
23 years after
Martin Lu-
ther nailed his
95 theses to the all-saints
church in Wittenburg, Ber-
lin finally converts to Prot-
estantism. Berlin prospered
for the immediate few de-
cades until it was thrown
into the medley of the thirty
years war (1618-48). Elec-
tor Georg Wilhelm (1620-
40) attempted to keep Ber-
lin neutral although this
only succeeded in Berlin
being battered by both sets
of belligerents. As a result
destruction, starvation,
murder and disease ran rife
through the city’s decimated
streets.
FrederickWil-
liam I, known
as the great
elector, succeeds his fa-
ther Georg Wilhelm as
elector of Brandenburg.
His reign is categorized
by a policy of encourag-
ing immigration and reli-
gious toleration.
The German
empire is found-
ed. Berlin is de-
clared the capital under
the command of Wilhelm
I of Prussia. Berlin’s pop-
ulation skyrockets from
800,000 to 1.5 million in-
habitants.
Kaiser Wilhelm goes into
exile in Holland as riots
break out after Germa-
ny’s heavy defeat in WWI.
Food shortages and left-
ist political aggravation
characterize these tumul-
tuous years, resultantly
the government resigns
and seeks peace with the
allied forces.
At the end of WWI in
1918, a republic was pro-

claimed in Berlin. In 1920, the
Greater Berlin Act incorporated
dozens of suburban cities, vil-
lages and estates around Berlin
into an expanded city. This new
area encompassed Spandau and
Charlottenburg in the west, as
well as several other
areas that are now
major municipalities.
After this expansion,
Berlin had a population of around
four million. During the Weimar
era, Berlin became internation-
ally renowned as a centre of cul-
tural transformation at the heart
of the Roaring Twenties.
The darkest hours of Berlin’s his-
tory begin. The American stock
market collapses in 1929. Ameri-
ca would call in all of its foreign
loans and Germany was spared no
slack, even after the massive rep-
arations it was forced to pay un-
der the Treaty of Versailles. This
crippled the economy
of Germany and em-
ployment rose to over
6 million people. As
history has proved over and over,
economic depression causes the
rise of extremism – during this
period National Socialism and
Communism were vying for the
power of German government.
Hitler obtained full power after
claiming emergency powers from
Chancellor Von Hindenburg after
the Reichstag fire. The fire was os-
tensibly caused by Dutch anarchist
Marinus Van Der Lubbe, although
many historians still speculate
that the Nazi’s caused it them-
selves in order to gain emergency
powers.

HISTORYAfter the fall of
Berlin in WWII,
Berlin is spliced into 4 sec-
tions by the allied powers.
The former population of 4.5
million is almost halved, with
a third of all the city’s histor-
ic buildings and living space
flattened.
Berlin is slashed
in two by the
Berlin Wall. The
Eastern bloc claimed that the
wall was erected to protect
its population from fascist
elements conspiring to pre-
vent the will of the people in
building a socialist state in
East Germany. In operation
however, the wall served only
to prevent the massive emi-
gration & defection (dubbed
the brain-train) leaving for
West Germany. The path
of the wall is marked today
by a double row of cobbles
throughout the city.
A peaceful revo-
lution leads to
the destruction
of the Berlin wall and subse-
quently the dismantling of
the GDR. As communism
began to falter in Poland,
Hungary and Czechoslova-
kia, new exodus points were
opened, breaking a hole in
the iron curtain. On Novem-
ber 9th 1989, East German
official, Gunter Schabowski,
announced that, “perma-
nent relocations can be done
through all border check-
points between the GDR into
the FGR or West Berlin”.
This announcement caused
mass celebrations on both
sides of the wall, many par-
ticipants bringing a chisel
and hammer to take part in
its destruction.
Germany is offi-
cially re-united
by the Grundgesetz consti-
tution article 25. The end
of the process is referred to
as Deutsch Einheit, or Ger-
man Unity. Berlin again
becomes Germany’s capital
and parliament returns to
the Reichstag for the first
time since 1933.

Berlin is now a world city of culture, politics, media and science.
Its economy is based loosely on high tech industry and the service
sector. It is a thriving cultural mecca, particularly amongst young
people due to its vibrant nightlife (clubs have no legal obligation
to close) and has become one of the coolest places on the face of the
earth. Berlin is a fully unified and cosmopolitan city and an exciting
destination for travellers.

  • 4. 4 Multicultural, innovative and colourful are just a few of the adjectives that spring to mind when thinking of Berlin. Everything you see in this city hides a secret which is ready to be uncov- ered. While walking through the streets, if you look carefully, you will notice that most of the monuments, the parks, the roads and even open air spaces try to convey a piece of Berlin’s controversial his- tory. With this guide we want to introduce you to the most interesting places that you absolutely must see. We start with a brief history of the city, it may seem bor- ing, but be assured that it’s very important to be aware of the past in order to better ap- preciate some of the sites. The survival guide that comes next provides you with the most important informa- tion about hostels, public transport and other places you might need to go. Then we cover different sec- tions. Culture is an impor- tant part of Berlin and we have highlighted the best bits along with an excellent guide to the museums and art gal- leries.

  • 5. 5 Cafés and restaurants can be considered one of the most in- teresting aspects of the city, as they mirror its multicultural- ism. In Berlin you will find ev- ery kind of food from Turkey to China, from Italy to North Eu- rope. Nightlife is another important feature, young people here have a wide selection of clubs, bars and pubs, so you’ll be spoilt for choice. Even shopping lovers can sat- isfy their needs, not only in the shopping area of Ku-dam, but also thanks to the opportunities that the city provides for vin- tage shopping and flea markets. During the warmer seasons it’s very enjoyable to spend an en- tire day in one of the various outdoor areas of the city: Tier- garten, Wannsee and Tegeler See. Last but not the least you will also find a piece of advice about the best guided tours both on foot and with other means of transport. So, don’t miss the oppor tunity to discover Berlin, espe- cially if you have a low budget. Follow our suggestions and you won’t be disappointed!
  • 6. The earli- est mention of Berlin in a title deed. In the 13th cen- tury, itinerant merchants founded the trading posts of Berlin & Cölln near today’s Nicholaiviertal. A profitable medieval trade route, the Ascanian margrave of Bran- denburg decided to amal- gamate the two towns into one for political and security purposes in 1307. 23 years after Martin Lu- ther nailed his 95 theses to the all-saints church in Wittenburg, Ber- lin finally converts to Prot- estantism. Berlin prospered for the immediate few de- cades until it was thrown into the medley of the thirty years war (1618-48). Elec- tor Georg Wilhelm (1620- 40) attempted to keep Ber- lin neutral although this only succeeded in Berlin being battered by both sets of belligerents. As a result destruction, starvation, murder and disease ran rife through the city’s decimated streets. FrederickWil- liam I, known as the great elector, succeeds his fa- ther Georg Wilhelm as elector of Brandenburg. His reign is categorized by a policy of encourag- ing immigration and reli- gious toleration. The German empire is found- ed. Berlin is de- clared the capital under the command of Wilhelm I of Prussia. Berlin’s pop- ulation skyrockets from 800,000 to 1.5 million in- habitants. Kaiser Wilhelm goes into exile in Holland as riots break out after Germa- ny’s heavy defeat in WWI. Food shortages and left- ist political aggravation characterize these tumul- tuous years, resultantly the government resigns and seeks peace with the allied forces. At the end of WWI in 1918, a republic was pro- 6 HISTORY 1237 1539 1871 1640 By Thomas Bamford

This new area encompassed Spandau and Charlottenburg in the west, as well as several other areas that are now major municipalities. After this expansion, Berlin had a population of around four million. During the Weimar era, Berlin became internation- ally renowned as a centre of cul- tural transformation at the heart of the Roaring Twenties. The darkest hours of Berlin’s his- tory begin. The American stock market collapses in 1929. Ameri- ca would call in all of its foreign loans and Germany was spared no slack, even after the massive rep- arations it was forced to pay un- der the Treaty of Versailles. This crippled the economy of Germany and em- ployment rose to over 6 million people. As history has proved over and over, economic depression causes the rise of extremism – during this period National Socialism and Communism were vying for the power of German government. Hitler obtained full power after claiming emergency powers from Chancellor Von Hindenburg after the Reichstag fire. The fire was os- tensibly caused by Dutch anarchist Marinus Van Der Lubbe, although many historians still speculate that the Nazi’s caused it them- selves in order to gain emergency powers. 7 1920 1933
  • 8. HISTORYAfter the fall of Berlin in WWII, Berlin is spliced into 4 sec- tions by the allied powers. The former population of 4.5 million is almost halved, with a third of all the city’s histor- ic buildings and living space flattened. Berlin is slashed in two by the Berlin Wall. The Eastern bloc claimed that the wall was erected to protect its population from fascist elements conspiring to pre- vent the will of the people in building a socialist state in East Germany. In operation however, the wall served only to prevent the massive emi- gration & defection (dubbed the brain-train) leaving for West Germany. The path of the wall is marked today by a double row of cobbles throughout the city. A peaceful revo- lution leads to the destruction of the Berlin wall and subse- quently the dismantling of the GDR. As communism began to falter in Poland, Hungary and Czechoslova- kia, new exodus points were opened, breaking a hole in the iron curtain. On Novem- ber 9th 1989, East German official, Gunter Schabowski, announced that, “perma- nent relocations can be done through all border check- points between the GDR into the FGR or West Berlin”. This announcement caused mass celebrations on both sides of the wall, many par- ticipants bringing a chisel and hammer to take part in its destruction. Germany is offi- cially re-united by the Grundgesetz consti- tution article 25. The end of the process is referred to as Deutsch Einheit, or Ger- man Unity. Berlin again becomes Germany’s capital and parliament returns to the Reichstag for the first time since 1933. 1945 1961 1989 1990
  • 9. 9 Berlin is now a world city of culture, politics, media and science. Its economy is based loosely on high tech industry and the service sector. It is a thriving cultural mecca, particularly amongst young people due to its vibrant nightlife (clubs have no legal obligation to close) and has become one of the coolest places on the face of the earth. Berlin is a fully unified and cosmopolitan city and an exciting destination for travellers. MODERN DAY BERLIN
