Berlin has a long and eventful history as the capital city of Germany. Located in the north of the country, the city is packed with cultural, historical and social events throughout the year to keep all visitors happy. It is also home to a wealth of entertainment venues, beautiful architecture and stunning natural parks that attract thousands of tourists to the city each year.
Berlin hosts a number of annual events such as festivals and parades that pay homage to or celebrate some aspect of German or Berlin culture. The Karneval der Kulturen is an extremely popular event that takes place on the streets of the city at the time of Pentecost each year. It celebrates multi-ethnicity and attracts flocks of tourists to join in the celebrations, fun and diverse range of activities on offer. These events make great holidays and booking city center accommodation means that you are always at the center of the celebrations.
More than 50 years running, the Berliner Festspiele is a hugely popular annual festival related directly to Berlin’s culture. The festival actually encompasses a number of more specific festivals which each celebrate a particular cultural aspect such as jazz, dance, literature and theatre. The festival lasts for a number of days and thus many tourists and locals enjoy it as a holiday due to the wide range of activities, nightlife and events that take place during the festival throughout the city. Both rural and city center accommodation, as well as dining options are widely available to meet tourist demand.
