Resilient, spirited, creative: these are just some of the words attributed to beautiful Berlin.

The German capital has emerged as a must-visit destination for culture, music and sport with over 28 million visitors in 2014. Berlin is a city that knows how to party; with a vibrant nightlife and a surging arts scene, it’s no surprise that Berlin is one of the most popular places for young travellers to explore.

The city is renowned for high-profile sporting events, including the 2009 IAAF World Athletics Championships and an annual marathon.

Its cultural scene extends across opera, design, contemporary dance and a celebrated vegetarian cuisine. Amidst its cafés, street-performers and pop-up stores, an innovative counter-culture continues to flourish.
