A vibrant city with a tumultuous past, modern Berlin is both Germany’s capital and its largest city. Fast-paced and forward-looking, the city has transformed itself in the 25 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall into one of the most dynamic and livable cities in Europe. For nearly 600 years, Berlin has served as a center of community, culture, politics, history and intrigue.
