Berlin’s storied past and diverse cultural landscape can make planning a well-rounded itinerary here seem rather daunting. Long weekend spent getting lost among the Museum Island hordes? Marathon shape-throwing sesh at a 24-hour club? Gastronomic odyssey down Neukölln’s Sonnenallee? Ugh – there’s simply so much to do. And unlike many smaller European cities, the German capital doesn’t have much in the way of an ‘Old Town’ you can use as HQ. That means it really is best to go in with a game plan – lest you spend a day wandering around Alexanderplatz asking yourself if this really is the über-cool city everyone raves about.
