48 Hours in Berlin, Germany, Berlin, Germany (B)

There is something charming about Germany to me. Cultural diversity, beautiful landscapes, gluckwein, German style houses with timber framing are just some of the things that make this country attractive to many, including me.

While Germany can offer a variety of attractions for foreigners, Berlin is the top urban destination among travellers. It’s a buzzing city full of culture and history. Now, who can say no to such a well-made combination?

The first time I visited Berlin was a year ago when I went to explore German Christmas markets during the festive season with my family.
