BERLIN

After more than 20 years since the wall fell, Berlin has regained its position as one of the world's most influential cities. In rebuilding from the rubble of WWII and the subsequent tensions of the Cold War, this city has gone on to become one of the world's most modern metropolises. Yet, evident still in the sleek new Berlin's glass-and-steel towers, tourists will stumble upon poignant mementos of the past such as the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag and Checkpoint Charlie. Berlin is also rife with atmospheric corners where Berlin hotels occupy restored heritage buildings.

Kurfürstendamm (Ku'Damm for short) was at the center of West Germany's financial success. Even today this street hosts the best shopping in Berlin. The most famous venue is Kaufhaus des Westens, Europe's largest department store. Accommodation in this part of Berlin caters to affluent travelers with a taste for luxury, haute fashion and fine dining.

The best historic accommodation in Berlin is tucked into Mitte, an historic quarter with quite a few spectacular sites. It was walled into East Germany during the Cold War and locals made the most of the lock-in by dedicating themselves to restoration projects. This is where tourists do most of their sightseeing, as the museums, cafes and even the dance clubs of Mitte exude old-world charm. The most convenient accommodation for travelers making quick stopovers is found in the Reinickendorf/Wittenau area where Tegel Airport hotels are located.

Many of the former working-class neighborhoods in or near East Germany have been reborn in recent years. Schöneberg is one of the best examples of this, emerging as one of Europe's most exciting alternative scenes with excellent entertainment in reach of the now-gentrified suburbs. Berlin's electronic music scene is also one of the most exciting and progressive in the world, from underground bunker parties to large-scale events like the Love Parade.

Today's Berlin is self-assured and equipped for the task of leading the country into the 21st century. With fast and efficient transport, dozens of world-class museums and a growing taste for upscale dining and fashion, Berlin is the perfect mix of history, culture and commerce.
