How many days should you spend in Berlin?

Berlin is a large, spread-out city. To get a feel for Germany’s capital, you probably need at least three full days. If you’re a history fan, you might want to bump that up to at least five days to visit significant World War II and Cold War sites. You may also be able to fit in a day trip to Potsdam or Sachenhausen in that time, although it’s not uncommon for a true history buff to leave after five days and still feel like they’ve barely scratched the surface.

What is the best area to stay in Berlin?

Berlin’s sites are spread out and there isn’t a single main city center.

Mitte is a great area for first-time visitors because it’s slightly more convenient for visiting famous attractions like Alexanderplatz, Brandenburg Gate and Museum Island. Hotels in this area can be expensive, so make sure to book far in advance for the best prices.

If you’re on a budget, Friedrichshain is artsy, has a great nightlife, and is in walking distance of popular East Berlin attractions like the East Side Gallery. It’s also a good spot for families, so it’s a great area overall for visitors.

You can also find street art and a good nightlife in Kreuzberg, which is known for being LGBTQ+ friendly. It offers access to beautiful walks and Checkpoint Charlie, one of history’s most notorious border crossings.

Prenzlauer Berg is a laidback district with lots of green space, trendy restaurants and unique shopping options, plus the Berlin Wall Memorial and elegant pre-war buildings.
