About Berlin

Berlin is a city of contrast and fusion: East meets west, history meets future, and art meets underground. As a European center of politics, culture, and art, countless people are attracted to Berlin's unique cultural vibrancy, sizzling creativity and raw charm.

The city of Berlin, built around the River Spree in Bundesland, has undergone enormous changes in the past 100 years. Though most of Berlin was destroyed after Second World War, many landmarks have either been restored or reconstructed and the city has emerged from the past and undergone the biggest construction project in Europe.

Residents and visitors alike are fascinated by the traces of an eventful past that can be encountered almost everywhere in the city. Berlin offers unrivalled educational, intellectual, cultural, and recreational opportunities.

Berlin is now a thriving, modern city, with an exciting atmosphere and a strong feeling of change. It is once again one of the greatest European cities: lively, dynamic and inviting.
