In the last century`s twenties, Berlin was the one metropolis of Europe. And Germany`s capital prepares for taking over this role again in the new millenium. Hardly another European city finds itself in a comparable upheaval and movement as Berlin does. The city centre seems to constantly change its face, and the huge number of sights, like Reichstag and Brandenburger Tor, are joined by new ones like Potsdamer Platz. But there is also a lot to discover aside off the famous sights. Cultural and night life next to endless shopping possibilities are attractive, and the quiet, green corners of the metropolis invite to relax. Berlin is simply a city to everyone`s taste.
