Where hip meets grit, with a dash of history to boot

Though Germany's capital city dates back to the 13th century, today it has a hipster appeal that's entirely modern. With its thriving nightlife, as well as a growing dining, cafe, and shopping scene, opting for a Berlin vacation rental in the heart of the city, or in one of its up-and-coming neighborhoods, will put you in the middle of the action. But the city doesn't shy away from its turbulent past one little bit and you'll be able to find out about its role in both World War II and the Cold War.

Official capital of Germany, unofficial capital of hipsters

Berlin celebrates a diverse mix of historic neighborhoods full of intrigue and must-sees, from the Brandenburg Gate to Checkpoint Charlie to Charlottenburg Palace, and vibrant new hotspots, seemingly made for the hipsters who frequent many of its bars and cafes. The city is also known for its eclectic music scene, with plenty of clubs, concert venues, and bars celebrating up and coming artists. Opt for a guided tour of the city, either by foot, bike, bus, or Segway, and learn about the intricate history of one of Europe's most storied cities.

Iconic museums and monuments at every turn

Berlin is practically made for museum-hopping, and luckily, this city has no shortage! A stroll along the East Side Gallery, featuring preserved and resorted parts of the Berlin Wall, is a must. Be sure to also visit the art exhibits at the Kathe Kollwitz Museum, or explore the Bauhaus Archives at the Museum of Design. Visit the Topography of Terror, and learn about the community that Berlin, and Europe, lost at the Jewish Museum. The Berlin War Memorial is not to be missed, and if you're traveling with kids, be sure to hit Zoo Berlin and the neighboring Aquarium Berlin.

It's a whole new city when the sun is shining

Berlin's summers are short, but this is when the city truly buzzes to life. Spring and fall also have their perks, so plan a visit from May through October to enjoy the cafe scene, fall in love with picnics in the park, and stroll leisurely from neighborhood to neighborhood. Winters in Berlin are cold and gray, and you may find that November through January is mostly overcast. The upside for budget travelers is that your Berlin vacation rental is likely to be that much more affordable in the off-season.

Where "the world is too small for walls"

Situated in northeastern Germany on the River Spree, Berlin is the country's largest and most sprawling city. Forests, parks, gardens, rivers, and lakes make up almost one third of the city's land area, with the rest dedicated to a diverse mix of architecture, most from the Cold War era. This layout makes it an ideal city for walking, hiking, and biking—especially as the city itself is largely flat. Though Berlin was once divided by its infamous wall, today, only the River Spree runs through the city, separating its neighborhoods, but not its people.
