The once-divided city is now a multicultural melting pot of vibrant art, international cuisine and progressive attitudes. Both fascinating and sobering reminders of Nazi rule and East and West Berlin remain. The city centre also holds a vast collection of art and antiquities from across the world. At night, Berlin welcomes visitors with a wide variety of live music, bars and dance clubs.
