As the German capital, Berlin is almost 775 years old and is known as a city of culture, politics and science. With a lively culture and infamous history, this city is loved by locals and tourists alike and certainly has a lot to offer those who want to explore it. The art scene is one cultural aspect of the city that is constantly flourishing, the East Side Gallery is one example which is a highly popular tourist spot.
