Interesting facts:

  • There are total of 180 museums in Berlin (although this number might be higher while you are reading this!). That’s why we recommend museum visits as a top thing to do, as there are so many.
  • Almost half of Berliner adults are single. There is your chance if you are single (and looking) as well.
  • There are around 500,000 foreigners living in Berlin, which makes them about 14% of total population.
