Berlin has seen so many historic upheavals over the past one hundred years that is now reinventing itself with a new face, a new identity. In fact, since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the German capital seems to want to move faster than time itself by launching itself into an incredible race to forge its own destiny and to create a new mythology for itself.
High-tech buildings have sprung up on waste land and the German government has reintegrated its Reichstag over new foundations. Walking along cbeerful avenues such as Ku’Damm, or through lively neighbourhoods like Tiergarten, will let you discover the various mentalities and cultures which enrich the German capital. Berliners did not have to wait for the revamping of their city to stay at the peak of avant-garde artistic expression. Numerous parties and festivals enliven the nightlife of Berlin's youth. The city with a turbulent past can nowadays hold its head high in all its glory.
