The City

Berlin – a green city

Berlin is a city of contrasts – history and modernity, bustling urbanity and sheer relaxation, skyscrapers and spreading waves of green. In Berlin, there are always natural surroundings where you can unwind, even in the downtown area! Berlin's urban landscape contains 2,500 public green spaces, including large spreading parks and exotic landscaped gardens. In total, green spaces and woodland account for over 32 per cent of the city area.

For years, Berlin's urban planning has also been green, focusing on such issues as climate protection and sustainability. Just through its strong programme of building refurbishment and solar array installation, Berlin has reduced carbon emissions by several million tons annually. Eco-awareness and green approaches are also a global trend in the convention industry, playing their part in the growing demand for eco-friendly event locations and conference hotels.

Modern technologies and vibrant networks

Berlin is one of the largest scientific locations in Europe. The networking between science and research is supported by around 300 universities, universities of science, research institutions and technology parks. Berlin Adlershof is home to one of Germany's most successful high technology locations hosting over 800 companies working closely with a range of scientific institutions.

Berlin promotes the alignment and networking of science and industry. In its innovation strategy, Berlin business policy is focused on developing fields of expertise in biotechnologies and medical technologies, as well as information and communication technologies, the media, traffic system technologies and optical technologies. In this way the capital successfully meets the challenges in the global race for knowhow and innovation.

Food is better in Berlin

The German capital inspires visitors with its uniquely diverse, lively restaurant scene and creative, experimental chefs. This modern city is not only trendy, it sets trends – even for lovers of fine dining as well "It is an exciting time for food here", reported the New York Times as it reviewed the chefs in Berlin who are reinventing German cuisine – and are therefore being rewarded with ever more Michelin stars. Twelve restaurants in total have been awarded stars from the traditional guide to fine dining; four of them even boast two stars. No other German city has earned as many Michelin stars.

But there's always something new to discover beyond the world of Michelin-star dining. It's not just about the good food – many places will delight you with their relaxed urban style and design as well. In addition, Berlin's street food culture still continues to evolve and diversify.

Berlin has become a hotspot of cocktail culture. For the past few years, bars have appeared all over the place, adding to the mix of renowned classic pubs, chic hotel bars and hidden, glamorous trendy meeting places, so there's something for every taste. In the past two decades, the Berlin club scene has become legendary and has contributed significantly to the appeal of the German capital. It has given rise to trends, shaped new types of music and laid the foundations for the careers of internationally renowned DJs such as Paul van Dyk, Ricardo Villalobos, Ellen Allien and Paul Kalkbrenner.

People gather from all over the world to party in Berlin, where no curfews means the party continue until dawn.
