Berlin is the proof that appearances sometimes don’t really matter. Germans' love for graffiti, unrestored buildings and punk, is reflected onto most of the buildings of the capital. The Berlin Wall is one the city’s main touristic attractions and rests of it can be seen in different areas, like the Wall Museum.
Nonetheless, the best place to see the Berlin Wall is the East Side Gallery: a section of the original wall which has been covered over the years by the works of graffiti artists of all the world and which is the epitome of the desperate need for freedom Berliners had before the fall of the wall in 1990. Berlin is less expensive than one would expect from the capital of Europe’s economic motor, partly thanks to the ever-growing Turkish community whose stores and restaurants offer very competitive prices.
Berlin is also arguably the best place in the world to listen to Electronic music: clubs like Berghain and Chalet are known worldwide. Besides, many clubs in Berlin open on Friday night and close only on Monday afternoon, so you should be able to find a time slot which fits your schedule.
