Also visit the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, an architectural masterpiece that evokes feelings and emotions like no other. For something more lighthearted, head to the Berlin Philharmonic and indulge in a night of classical music.
Sophisticated and cosmopolitan, Munich has quite a different vibe to Berlin.

Other beautiful places to visit include the Munich Botanical Gardens, English Gardens and Marienplatz, the place to go for the best shopping and sightseeing.
Slightly less famous but by no means less beautiful is Düsseldorf.This understated city has its own charm, situated right on the banks of the Rhine. If you’re pressed for time, the best way to get to know Düsseldorf is to discover itsAltstadt(Old Town); the compact city center is best explored by walking, and it’s easy to navigate.

Diverse yet quietly romantic is the city of Amsterdam. Must-sees in this beautiful city include the Van Gogh Museum, Anne Frank House and the Amsterdam Tulip Museum, a flower very much associated with the Netherlands. What’s unique about Amsterdam is its public transport system.

Biking is also very common in Amsterdam with dedicated bicycle paths around the city.
