A UNESCO-listed World Heritage Site, home of the Neues Museum, the Egyptian bust of Nefertiti and the spectacular Pergamonmuseum, one of the world’s major archaeological museums.
2. Climb to the top of the Reichstag
The home of the German Parliament has a glass rooftop, which allows you to embrace the panoramic beauty of the city right from the center of government.

A curious combination of a classical German sausage, sliced up in pieces and covered with ketchup and curry powder - the traditional German dish a favourite for locals, tourists, students and children alike.
5. Sightseeing on bike
You can start at the Reichstag, then view the leafy paths of Tiergarten, up to Brandenburg Gate, the Holocaust Memorial, Potsdamer Platz, Checkpoint Charlie and end with the Topography of Terror – an outdoor museum on the site of the wartime SS and Gestapo offices.
