The lively capital city of Berlin is home to modern pop culture, a gathering place for suburban trendsetters and an area for experimental lifestyles. A city where informality lives and more and more spaces for creative development are created. Berlin is considered a mainspot for cultural scene, diversity and contemporary art. With more than 170 museums, including the famous Museumsinsel in Berlin-Mitte, the capital offers many cultural attractions and a variety of sights. But Berlin can also compete and shine on an international level in the culinary field, with its hidden courtyards and small-room stores.
To get from A to B in Berlin, the well-developed local transport network with electric buses and completely solar-powered ferries is a very good and at the same time sustainable alternative to get around. And to get to places where sustainable urban planning such as green roofs, solar installations or energy-efficient buildings have already been implemented in Berlin, there are guided bike tours. Because when it comes to sustainability, the capital is clearly at the forefront. Concepts such as urban gardening, beehives on green roofs or shops with no packaging are nothing new here. The annual International Green Week, the Green Tech Festival or the sustainability trade fair “Green World Tour” are also part of the city’s sustainable framework.
Anyway, with over 2,500 parks and green spaces, Berlin is one of the greenest metropolises in Germany. Particularly impressive is the 300-hectare Tempelhofer Feld, which opened in 2010 and has since become a popular green leisure and recreation area in the middle of the city. The city also boasts with 43 nature reserves.
