A city riddled with urban culture, infamous nightlife, delicious food and rich history, Berlin is a must-see destination for your bucket list. Whether you are headed there for business or pleasure, Berlin, which is just one-hour flight away from CSOFT’s branch office in Düsseldorf, radiates energy from its beautiful architecture and an equally eclectic social scene.

If you were to visit Berlin, you simply cannot miss the opportunity to enjoy some of the greatest museums in the world. Berlin’s Museumsinsel, also known as “Museum Island,” is a UNESCO World Heritage Status-winning group of five prestigious museums. Home to collections spanning six thousand years of human artistic endeavors, Museumsinsel presents the evolution of art and museum design over the course of the 20th century. For the art lovers, spending a day or two at Museumsinsel will definitely not disappoint.

Another breathtaking site to visit for architecture is Gendarmenmartkt. Referred to as “one of the most beautiful places in Germany” by many locals, Gendarmenmarkt is a harmonious assemble of French and German cathedrals. The exquisite architecture of the concert house, twin churches and the German Dome make for a gorgeous stop in Berlin. Built in 1700 as part of King Friedrick I’s plan of expansion, Gendarmenmarkt is also the home for some of the most glamorous hotels and restaurants.

If churches and architecture aren’t your bag, don’t fret; a visit to Berlin would be incomplete without visiting both the Brandenburg Gate and the Berlin Wall. Brandenburg Gate, which was originally built from 1788-1791 to symbolize peace later represented the separation between East and West Germany. But these days, this remarkable structure made of sandstone has once again become a symbol of unity for the nation. Similar to visiting Beijing and skipping the Great Wall of China, the Berlin Wall is un-missable and unmistakable what once was the physical divider between East and West Germany from 1961 to 1989, now serves as a constant reminder of how far the nation has come.
