Where Is Berlin Located?

Situated about 180 kilometers south of the Baltic Sea, 190 kilometers north of the Czech-German border, 177 kilometers east of the former inner-German border, and 89 kilometers of Poland, you’ll find the the capital city of Germany, known as Berlin. Located in northeastern Germany, the city lies in the Berliner Urstromtal, a wide glacial valley of the Spree River, which runs through the center of the city and is part of the Northern European plain, stretching all the way from northern France to western Russia.

What Is Berlin Known For?

A city that has written itself into history books, Berlin has been a place of rejoice and rebellion. As the capital city of Germany, Berlin has stood strong throughout time. It has been shaped by history throughout the eras, serving as a former headquarters for the Nazi Party, housing ruins of World War II, being divided in two by the eponymous wall, and now transforming into a city of glamorous grit. With cutting-edge architecture, trend-setting culture, a flourishing culinary scene, and a paradise of parties, Berlin is truly the city that never sleeps. Bustling cafes that are awash with locals and tourists at all hours, clubs that party throughout the weekend to the early hours of Monday morning, and bars that determine drinking glasses of beer as a religious rite, Berlin is a city that prides itself on playing hard, as well as working hard. Pack your enthusiasm and stamina, because you’re in for a whale of a time when in Berlin.

Attractions to Visit in Berlin

  • Reichstag: Just like its home city, the Reichstag has stood strong through the test of time. Bombed to bits, burst into flames, reinforced against the Wall, and a focal point of wars, the neo-Baroque building that houses the German Bundestag (Parliament) has never bowed to outside forces. One of the most iconic buildings in the city, a visit to the Reichstag does not only offer its guests to feel the proud spirit of German democracy, but also gifts the visitor with stunning views over Berlin as they whizz to the top and stand under the glittering glass dome.
  • Brandenburg Gate: In comparison to the Reichstag, which serves as a tribute to the unfailing German spirit, the Brandenburg Gate serves as a reminder to the ever-present desire of European peace and unification. Once a symbol of destruction and division during World War II and the Cold War respectively, the Brandenburg is an iconic must-see for any first-timer in Berlin.
  • East Side Gallery: The East Side Gallery is a tribute to art, painted onto a structure that was once far from it. A 4,318 foot remnant of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery welcomes more than three million visitors per year who wish to see for themselves this unique open-air gallery. A series of murals decorate the fragment, serving as a historical monument to the momentous fall of the Berlin Wall and the reunification of the German capital, societies, and people.
