I will be going to Berlin for the second time in the spring. I felt like I went to some pretty touristy spots in Berlin my first time around, and I was wondering -- what are some great, lesser known attractions that are often overlooked?
Hey Kenneth, Berlin is easily our favourite city in Europe, and we have been back three times. Some of our favourite places that are slightly off the beaten path are Berlin Tempelhof Airport, the Olympiastadion Berlin (especially if you can see a Hertha Berlin match there!), the Thursday Street Food Market at Markthalle Neun in Kreuzberg (where you can sample great food from around the world), a tour of the Bundestag (book ahead of time), and touring around some of the abandoned places like Teufelsberg or Beelitz Heilstätten. You could also take a daytrip to Potsdam which is a gorgeous city and a great break from the hustle and bustle of Berlin. Hopefully this gives you a few ideas!
