Standing out as a unique capital city, Berlin is the seat of the German government and the center of Germany’s arts scene. The 775-year-old city is grand, grungy, historic and modern all at once. Germans hold a deep respect for history, and as a result, the city has no uniform look. Steel-and-glass structures sit next to centuries-old brick ones. This acceptance of things outside of the expected has drawn people from around the world to Berlin for over a century. The German capital is an exhilarating mix of languages, foods, styles and attitudes.
