There are not many historical sights left in Berlin, which makes each one of them all the more precious — the majestic Cathedral, the Reichstag and the Brandenburg Gate... But the biggest treasure the capital of Germany has is its unique atmosphere: always fun and cosy, with beer flowing like a river in bars, free-spirited artists continuously creating masterpieces and one festival after another.

The fastest and most convenient way to get to the German capital is to fly. Aeroflot operates 5 daily direct flights from Moscow, landing at Berlin Schönefeld Airport (duration: 2h 45m). The most affordable option is to buy round-trip tickets. Please note that the best deals sell out quickly, so we recommend booking in advance.

What to see

Berlin’s Museum Island (Museumsinsel) is a magnificent place to visit for those interested in art, as it is home to an outstanding ensemble of five world-renowned museums: the Bode Museum, the Old National Gallery (Alte Nationalgalerie), the Old Museum (Altes Museum), the New Museum (Neues Museum) and the Pergamon Museum (Pergamonmuseum).

Reichstag (Reichstagsgebäude) is a historic edifice constructed in 1894 to house the German parliament. During the 20th century, the building survived a fire, an encounter with Soviet soldiers and reconstruction. The Reichstag was not restored completely after WWII, however; part of the old wall was preserved in memory of Soviet soldiers. Since 1999, the federal government (Bundestag) has been headquartered here. To visit this historical and architectural monument, you must register online ahead of time.

The Brandenburg Gate (Brandenburger Tor) is one of the most iconic sights in Berlin and a must-see. Initially, it was known as the Peace Gate, part of the fortress that surrounded Berlin. The gate is crowned with a Quadriga (an ancient chariot driven by the goddess of victory, Victoria). When Napoleon conquered Berlin, the statue was taken down and moved to Paris. Only after the defeat of the French army was the statue returned to the German capital. During WWII, it was severely damaged and wasn’t restored until 1958. In 1990, the Brandenburg Gate became a symbol of German reunification.

The Berlin Zoo (Zoologischer Garten Berlin), one of the largest zoos on the planet, is perfect for tourists with children. It has one of the world’s most comprehensive collections of species, approximately 1,500, and over 17,000 animals. The Zoo is open to visitors all year round.
