There is something here for everyone, from museum lovers, foodies, artists, musicians, history buffs, and nature lovers. In this city that truly never sleeps, the textures and shapes are endlessly inviting and there are so many Instagram Berlin moments.

Yet, despite its size, and the fact it is the capital of Germany, Berlin is, at its heart, a conglomeration of villages that remain compact and easily accessible by public transport or foot, each with its culture and vibe. Experience them all to experience this city.

A Berlin Instagram Photo taken from Inside The Bundestag Dome

Reflections and light inside the dome of the Reichstag Building in Berlin. This is a must-see destination for anyone visiting Berlin. It is simply amazing to experience. The mirrored column you are seeing here reflects natural light into the building itself. Look closely to see the reflections of people walking around the spiral ramps up and down the inside of the dome. Admission to the dome and terrace is free, but advance registration required. The dome and terrace are open from 8 am to midnight.

DakPak StreetArt Teufelsberg

The Cold War and street art meet at Teufelsberg in Berlin. We were fortunate to be able to stumble across and talk with DakPak from Mexico, who had just completed the artwork you see on the wall below in the center of the main panel and above the door. He is standing on the ladder next to the tree at the bottom of the frame as we photographed the scene from a nearby staircase leading into a large building full of more amazing street art. Teufelsberg was once an Allied listening station during the Cold War, atop an artificial hill built of rubble from destroyed buildings after WWII. The listening station closed in 1989. Since that time, street artists have taken over. In the last few years, the site has developed into an official tour destination, billed as Europe’s largest and highest street art gallery. It is both eerie and magical and a must-see for any Berlin visit.

Molecule Men Reflection Spree

Molecule Men reflections on the Spree River in Berlin. Sculptor Jonathan Borofsky said of his installation, “[The sculpture is to remind] of the fact that both people and molecules exist in a world governed by probability, and that the objective of all creative and scientific traditions is finding wholeness and unity within the world.”

Stairs Criminal Court Alt Moabit

There’s just something cool about stairs in old buildings. This grand staircase is in the entry to the the criminal court (Kriminalgericht) in the Moabit neighborhood of Berlin. Completed in 1906, the building’s Baroque Revival architecture makes the grand entry stairs truly gawk-worthy — just let the guards know you want to take a photo of the stairs and they’ll show you where to stand. And realize they will closely monitor your photography efforts (no taking photos with people or faces that can be identified — this is a court of law after all). Insider fact: the Kriminalgericht was the first building in Berlin to have full electrical lighting.
