Enjoy Berlin on a Budget

Berlin seems to have struck the perfect urban balance—stunning art and architecture, a strong cultural scene, revered nightlife, and vast green spaces all combine to create what many consider the perfect city for travelers on a budget. Over one third of Berlin is made up of parks, and it boasts more bridges than Venice, not to mention some of the most visible history of any European city. With such an array of activities on offer, it's no wonder this city attracts visitors looking for more bang for their buck.

Things to see in Berlin

Start your stay in Berlin by dipping your toes into European history and culture on Museum Island, a dedicated UNESCO World Heritage site. An amble around this island of art and architecture won't cost you a dime. A picnic in one of Berlin’s many leafy parks, such as Volkspark Friedrichshain, is a cheap, enjoyable way to spend an evening and, if you’re looking for a bargain, the verdant Mauer Park hosts an excellent flea market every Sunday. One of the best ways to take in the entire city is from atop the Fernsehturm, known as the TV Tower. However, if you want to avoid the fee charged here, visit the Reichstag parliament building instead, where you can take the elevator to the top for free. A walk alongside the iconic Berlin Wall, covered in evocative modern street art, is another great, cost-free way to appreciate Berlin’s complicated past.
