If the gears are starting to turn in your head, it might just be time to do some adventure travel in Berlin! When you look beyond the wurst clichés, you can see that Berlin is more than just another big city. Adventure travel in Germany give you the opportunity to explore and discover the true heart of the city that keeps Berlin alive.

Life in Berlin

What city comes to mind when you think of the term “the city that never sleeps”? New York City? Los Angeles? Maybe even Hong Kong? Forget all of those! Berlin is the city that never sleeps as it is home to the best nightlife in Europe, from insane techno clubs to chill beer gardens to classy opera houses. Not only is the city alive at night, but basically 24/7. Cafes are always bustling and museums abound. It’s safe to say whether you're a early bird or night owl, an adventure abroad in Berlin will have something to offer you. As for Berliners themselves, they live by the creed “live and let live”, and put more stock in a creative lifestyle than most. 

As the capital city of a leading world country, Berlin also has quite a few perks. Those who choose to adventure abroad in Berlin can pretty much count on having any amenity they have at home. Although Berlin has a different set of flushing options on their toilets, there will be everything from an impeccable public transportation system to comfortable housing available for you to rest your head after a long day of adventure travel in Berlin.

GoAbroad Insider Tips

A point to take heed of: the cold, damp weather of Northern Europe. While summers in Berlin offer sunshine and balmy weather, winters can feel long and gray in relation. From October to April temperatures rarely exceed 50 degrees Fahrenheit, and rain and snow can become fairly common. If you are not accustomed to the cold, (or aren’t really down for pitching a tent in the snow) plan accordingly.

You should make a sincere effort to explore as much of the city as possible while adventuring abroad in Berlin. While off-the-beaten-path adventures abound, there is plenty of adventure to be had in the heart of the city with world-class museums, restaurants, concert venues, and an infamously thriving nightlife, there will never be a shortage of new things to do and try during an adventure abroad in Berlin.

Berlin passionately indulges on the smorgasbord of life, never taking anything, or itself, too seriously. Berlin will embrace, inspire, and accept you when you choose to do adventure travel in Germany. Remember to enjoy Berlin’s boldness, vast swathes of green, and take in both its glamorous and gritty sides, and it will return the favor unto you. So don't waste anymore time contemplating—just do it! Adventure travel in Berlin now!
