Berlin is a city that has something for just about everyone. Once the dividing line between east and west, this German capital has literally transformed into a thriving capital city with lots to be proud of. Visitors will be nearly overwhelmed by the many Berlin Mitte Sites there are to take in during their visit.
Museum lovers will be lost in what Berlin has to offer. Past visitors have claimed the only cities that come close to what Berlin has to offer in terms of museums are Paris and London.

For lovers of art the Charlottenburg Palace, Old National Gallery and the new National Gallery are worth a look. The East Side Gallery is also interesting--featuring some stunning graffiti on the remains of the Berlin Wall. Historians will appreciate the German History Museum, The Jewish Museum and Checkpoint Charlie and its museum. These provide some of the most comprehensive histories of Germany. The Gay Museum, Hemp Museum and Film Museum might be of interest to those who enjoy the more liberal side of Berlin.
