About Berlin

If you have some time to spare, Berlin has a lot to offer. Word has it that with 175 museums, Berlin has more museums than rainy days. It also has around 1700 bridges, which is more than Venice. And did you know that the first set of traffic lights in Europe was put into service in Potsdamer Platz in 1924? A replica of the lights can still be admired there today.

Furthermore, Berlin has over 180 kilometres of navigable waterways within its city limits, which makes it possible to explore the city by boat. Berlin is also one of the few cities with three UNESCO World Heritage sites, and in 2006 the German capital was awarded the title "UNESCO City of Design".
