The history of Berlin can be traced back for millennia and its metropolitan area is home to a number of unforgettable attractions perfect for the young and old alike.
One’s first thoughts of Berlin might be of its troubled past, of grim grey architecture and of humourless museums and of strictly punctual and highly organised people. These thoughts are wrong: based on stereotypes and not updated since the 60s – when few people travelled compared to nowadays!
If you only have 3 days in Berlin, then you’ll have sufficient time to explore many of the main sites and soak up the capital’s distinctive atmosphere. A weekend in Berlin will not allow you to view everything the city has to offer but you will certainly get to know your way around in that time. With just a weekend itinerary, Berlin can seem too large at first, so stick to a plan to get the best out of your schedule.
