Berlin

As historic as it is hip, the German capital is known for its impressive museums, vibrant culture, intense nightlife, gritty streets, growing startup scene and open attitude. Germany's largest city and the seat of its government, Berlin is also an important reminder of 20th century history. Today, the remains of the eponymous Wall are a tourist attraction, and the local multicultural hipsters enjoy a laidback lifestyle by day and a world-famous nightlife by night in a city whose cafes and clubs never seem to close.
