Berlin - TWISPER destination guide
The experience guide to

Berlin

Known for clubbing as much as it’s known for culture, Berlin is undoubtedly one of the coolest cities in Europe. Whether you’re planning to tour the UNESCO-protected Museum Island or to spend an entire weekend in Berghain, there’s something in Berlin for everyone.

It’s a massive city so you’ll want to get around on public transport or by bike to experience Berlin like a local. Thankfully, lots of important monuments and museums are near each other. So you can take a quiet moment at the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, see the iconic Brandenburg Gate and visit the historic Checkpoint Charlie all in the same morning.

Museum Island is a must-visit for any history buff, art lover and culture vulture. But if that’s not your scene, go spend an afternoon in an open-air cinema instead before grabbing one of the best burgers in the world. And make sure to save your energy for Berlin’s notorious nightlife scene. Everything from classy cocktail bars to lively beer gardens to seedy superclubs awaits. Cheers to that 🍻
