Berlin is well-known for its history, the former wall and simply as the capital of Germany. But this is not all the city boasts. Did you know that:

  • Berlin is Germany’s greenest city? Parks, woods, rivers, lakes and waterways cover 44 percent of the city.
  • there are more than 180 museums in Berlin? The East Side Gallery is the longest open-air gallery in the world and has the longest surviving stretch of the Berlin Wall?
  • with an area of 892 square kilometers, Berlin is nine times bigger than Paris?
  • Berlin has more than 950 bridges, easily trumping Venice?
