Berlin on $5 or less!


On a shoestring budget? Fret not! Berlin is the perfect place to have fun without wrecking havoc on your budget!

Here are just a few things you can do for less than a $5 (or for FREE!) :

Be blown away by the ever-evolving pieces in the East Side Gallery.

The Reichstag, in all its glass-domed glory, is considered to be one of the city’s most significant landmarks. The entrance to this location is free but often crowded with tourists. However, you can avoid the crowd if you head here on Sunday or mid-week evenings.

Sit on one of the giant swings located atop one of the hills Mauer Park during sunset with a carton of wine (.80 Euro cents) and good company.

Head over to the the Volkspark in Friedrichshain on Sundays and you’ll often find yourself in the midst of a raging rave. Entrance is free, of course.

Get lost in the maze of the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe site. It’s best go here during the evenings, where the glow of the TV Tower (Fernsehturm) will light the way.

The beauty of this historically scarred city is that it entices you to look beyond the beaten down facades or the graffiti strewn walls to find the hidden gems of the city. In Berlin, anything is possible at any given moment and for any given budget.
