Tracing the path of history in the capital of Berlin

Berlin symbolizes Germany's unique history and harmonious coexistence after decades of East-West division.


Berlin is probably the only place on Earth that had two of everything: two zoos, two airports, two promenades – all separated by the Berlin Wall. Berlin has been finally reunited after the peaceful revolution. However, it remains dotted with relics from its turbulent history.


The Reichstag building is home to the German parliament. Here, you can witness a parliamentary session first-hand. Climb up to the cupola for an incomparable panorama of the city skyline. Do you prefer shopping? If so, come by the main train station. Its five floors are packed with exciting stores for virtually every taste. To maximize your sightseeing time, it helps to stay at a central location – the Steigenberger Hotel is perfectly situated.
