Culture...

With a over a hundred art galleries; a rich history of theatre, cabaret and the performance arts; a whole island dedicated to museums; plus a world famous film festival, it's fair to say that if you're after culture you've come to the right place. Berlin's turbulent and chequered history can't be easily forgotten, however the need to regenerate both physically and psychologically has fostered a unique atmosphere of energetic creativity. Today's visitors can enjoy the aura of New Berlin by strolling through the wide bohemian streets of Kreuzberg or Prenzlauer Berg, taking in the shops, cafes and art galleries in Mitte, or by paying a visit to one of the many art-house cinemas or fringe theatres in the city. Those searching for more traditional culture can spend literally days exploring the treasures of Museum Island, walk through the Brandenburg gate into Tiergarten park, or pay a visit to the breath-taking Schloss Charlottenburg (Charlottenburg Palace).
