Stimulate your mind and educate yourself in history in one of Europe's most interesting capital cities. Book Berlin apartments and stay in the capital city of one of the most beautiful and historically and culturally fascinating countries in the world. According to historical records, the city of Berlin dates back to the 13th century and throughout the years has seen its culture be shaped by some of the most important events in world history. One of the biggest events in this city was its division into West and East Berlin by the Berlin Wall.
The wall was brought down in 1989, uniting Berlin into what it is today – a splendid, culturally rich and a globally important city. Staying in the many Berlin holiday rentals will give you an opportunity to enjoy the unique cityscape of Berlin. It is a blend of sleek and modern architecture and old and historic monuments. Potsdamer Platz with its contemporary architecture seems to co-exist peacefully with the mediaeval monuments of Alexanderplatz. You can look for Berlin holiday rentals in and around the many districts that constitute Berlin, each of which has a unique characteristic beauty about it. For instance, walking through and exploring Mitte will take you through a plethora of world-envied museums and art galleries.

Berlin holiday rentals are also a great way to enjoy the art galleries here, for Berlin is known as a city of art. The churches of Berlin are also a magnificent sight to behold. The almost surreally beautiful Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, the Berliner Dom and the Marienkirche are sure to take your breath away, each one brimming with rich and fascinating history. The Berliner Dom has been standing since the late 19th century and the Kaiser Wilhelm dates back to 1891.
While on holiday in Berlin holiday rentals, you can also visit iconic landmarks such as the Bundestag, the German national parliament building, the Kollhoff Tower, which has Europe’s fastest elevator, and the Siegessaule, which dates back to 1865. This tower, in complete contrast to the Kollhoff Tower, has no elevator and you will have to climb around 280 steps to get to the top, but once you are there, the view and the Statue of Victoria will make the climb more than worth it. Berlin holiday rentals are also a way to catch a glimpse of the last remnant of the infamous Berlin Wall that stands in the East Side Gallery.
