Buzzing Berlin - An Incantato Favorite

Founded in the 13th century, Berlin has had an eventful history. Excavations from 2008 suggest that the city may be even older than was previously assumed: state archaeologists have discovered an oak beam that probably dates back to 1183.
Almost no other metropolis in the world has experienced such frequent, radical change transforming the face of the city. Although Berlin saw steady growth in its importance, dazzling epochs alternated with darker eras. Nevertheless, the formerly divided city has succeeded in becoming a vibrant metropolis in the heart of Europe, which re-invents itself constantly.

The special mix of historic sights and modern architecture of the 20th and 21st centuries is what fascinates visitors from around the world. Whether museums or galleries, gastronomy or entertainment, music or fashion, there are so many new things to experience in the German capital. It is this diversity, the contrasts between the eastern and western parts of the city and the inexhaustible potential of the German capital that make this city so attractive. There is a broad spectrum of art, culture, music, entertainment and shopping.

Historical highlights of the city include the Brandenburg Gate, the most famous trademark of Berlin.Reichstag, the German Parliament, with its glass dome roof and panoramic view is a popular visitor destination to catch a great birdseye view of the city. Museum Island, a complex of five world-renowned museums and also a UNESCO World Heritage site. And the Potsdam Square, one of the most popular attractions of Berlin.
