Berlin: The Ultimate Resource Guide

Whether you're considering a visit to Berlin for the first time, returning for another look, or even considering a longer stay or move to Berlin, this Berlin resource guide is for you.

We brought together Berlin experts Adam Groffman (Travels of Adam), Natalie Holmes (Context Travel and Slow Travel Berlin) and Giulia Pines (Fodor's) to talk all things Berlin on a Google Hangout (see the video below). We gleaned some of the best tips and advice from our discussion and put them together here for you.

We will actively update this list as we continue exploring and finding new bits, spots and intelligence to share on Berlin.
