Citytrip with your motorhome: Berlin

Berlin, the capital of Germany, is a city for everyone: It’s full of history, culture and art. This makes it the perfect city for everyone to spend a (long) weekend. For first-time visitors, sights such as the Brandenburg Gate are excellent. Have you been in the city before? Then go and discover the lesser-known neighbourhoods. Are you looking for a trip full of culture? Then read on!

Berlin for the first time

Berlin has a turbulent history because of the Second World War. Parts of the city were destroyed and the wall was built, dividing the city into East and West Berlin. Until today, a piece of the original wall can still be seen at ‘Gedenkstätte Berliner Mauer’. Other places where history can still be felt are the Holocaust Memorial, the Reichstag and Brandenburg Gate, a gate at the end of Unter den Linden, perhaps the most famous street in Berlin. Tiergarten is close to the Brandenburg Gate, so for a quiet walk in the green part of Berlin or a nice picnic, you can go here! The Berliner Dom is also a beautiful building to see inside and out. Nice squares in Berlin are Alexanderplatz, perhaps not the most beautiful place in Berlin due to the many gray buildings, but for shopping and a tasty bratwurst to eat you are in the right place. Potsdamer Platz was completely destroyed in the Second World War, before that it was the centre of the city. Now it is a modern square where, among others, the Sony Center is located.

Visited the city before?

Those who have visited the city before may be looking for other things than the well-known sights. The Friedrichshain district is the raw part of Berlin, where there is a lot of street art and plenty of good restaurants. In Tempelhof-Schöneberg lies the former Tempelhof airport, once one of the largest airports. Now it is home to a park, where there is a lot of walking on the former runways and where people have a barbecue. Prenzlauer Berg was neglected after the Second World War and mainly attracted alternates. Today you can visit the Jewish Cemetery here, drink a German beer at Berlin's oldest beer garden, Biergarten Prater, and relax in the Mauerpark. Here there is still a small piece of the Berlin Wall that can be sprayed with graffiti by anyone. On Sundays there is a nice flea market here to stroll over.  


The city of Berlin has an environmental zone, which means that many motorhomes are not allowed to enter the city. Just outside the city center, with good public transport connections, you will find several motorhome stopovers which make a visit to the city quick and easy!
