Buzzing Berlin: an Incantato Favorite

More than 20 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall and thus reunification of Germany, Berlin has evolved into a young, dynamic and cosmopolitan city at the heart of Europe that is constantly re-inventing itself. The special mix of historic sights and modern architecture of the 20th and 21st centuries is what fascinates visitors from around the world. Whether museums or galleries, gastronomy or entertainment, music or fashion, there are so many new things to experience in the German capital. It is this diversity, the contrasts between the eastern and western parts of the city and the inexhaustible potential of the German capital that make this city so attractive. There is a broad spectrum of art, culture, music, entertainment and shopping. Currently, the "City West" around the zoo is reconstructed and the Kurfuerstendamm, Berlin's most famous shopping boulevard, celebrated 125 years in 2011. 
Historical highlights of the city include
Brandenburg Gate, the most famous trademark of Berlin.
Reichstag, the German Parliament, with its glass dome roof and panoramic view is a popular visitor destination to catch a great birdseye view of the city.
Museum Island, a complex of five world-renowned museums and also a UNESCO World Heritage site. 
Potsdam Square, one of the most popular attractions of Berlin.
