If you've got 3 days left of holiday for this year do yourself a favour and head off to Berlin. It won't take you long to feel the incredible vibe of this intriguing mix of a place, where the extremely modern clashes with a history that at times feels so recent even if it dates back almost 30 years.
The traces of the Wall linger in the midst of modern buildings, graffiti and vegan hot spots – playgrounds fill the voids between condominiums left by bombs. There's a little bit of everything in Berlin to make you fall in love, whatever you are into. Plus is the most animal friendly city I've ever been in so it gets my full endorsement!
