    Berlin is Germany's cultural capital and holds a wealth of historic significance within many parts of the city and amongst the beautiful architecture. Mitte is Berlin's historical centre where you will find museums, historical buildings and classically German architecture. The Brandenburg Gate is the centre point of Mitte as it is symbolic of the reunification between East and West Berlin. Whilst in Mitte, have a look at the Reichstag building which houses the Federal German Parliament. The exterior of the building is covered in a silver and glass dome and is spectacular to look at. The Pergamon Museum is a grand building that houses three beautiful collections, the Collection of Classical Antiquities, the Museum of Near Eastern Antiques and the Museum of Islamic Art. Mitte also has a lively nightlife consisting of many mid-range and high-end restaurants, bars and cafes to suit your budget.

    The main shopping district can be found in West Berlin. For luxury shops, hotels and restaurants visit the Ku'Damm and Fasanenstrasse. If you are a traveller that wants convenience and one place where you can find everything then look no further than KaDeWe. It is the largest department store on the European continent and sells everything from clothes and accessories to drinks and nibbles at the champagne bar on the sixth floor.

Not only does this picturesque terrain encompass castles, mini gardens and romantic ruins, it is also a UNESCO listed World Heritage site. Another destination worth the two-hour drive just outside of Berlin is Brunswick. Spend a day canoeing or paddling for around €12 per hour or visit one of Brunswick's many famous festivals of music, film, beer, fireworks or medieval market fairs. Hamburg is another beautiful city that visitors must see by water. Located just three hours away from Berlin, Hamburg is best explored on a ferry or pleasure boat. There are numerous events held here including the Hamburger Dom Fair which takes place for one month each season. The streets are lined with food and clothing stalls as well as rides for the children and it is one of the largest fairs in Germany.

    Parking and Tolls in Berlin

    Berlin's CBD is divided into paid and unpaid parking zones. The cost of parking varies depending on the area, though a few districts offer a special parking permit which must be obtained at the district office (Bezirksamt). On-street parking in and around the city centre usually costs from €3 per hour on Monday - Friday between 9 am and 8 pm and on Saturday from 9 am - 6 pm. In areas just outside the city, there are unlimited, free parking zones. Car parks in the city are also available for an average charge of €1 - €4 an hour. Park and Ride systems are a cheap alternative to parking in the city centre. Visitors are able to leave their cars at a Park and Ride station for a daily fee of around €1.50 and get public transport into the city district.

    Like many CBD areas, Berlin's roads can get quite congested during peak hour times, however the streets are quite wide which makes them more manageable. It is important to note that Berlin has a Low Emission Zone, which includes all areas within the S-Bahn ring. All vehicles in this zone must display a green emission badge, and there's no exception for foreign plates. Most vehicles hired within Germany will have a green emission sticker, however if your car does not, then you will have to order one online well in advance.

    All autobahns in Germany are toll-free, though some private roads in the Bavarian Alps may have tolls.
