Berlin is characterised by a wide-ranging diversity of different ways of living. This environment creates fertile ground for ideas and projects not only in art and on the stage but also equally in the cityscape and daily life. This Berlin diversity reached its zenith in the 1920s – before Hitler came to power in 1933 and almost immediately enacted his Gleichschaltung “Enabling Law”, heralding the onset of the Nazi dictatorship of enforced conformity.

Even on a small budget, you don’t have to miss out on museums, operas, karaoke in the Mauerpark and the like. A stay in the metropolis doesn’t have to cost the earth to be exciting and full of variety.
