Making a trip to one of Europe’s most artistic, cultured, and storied cities? Drop our Berlin expert a line before you head out the door.

Berlin is big. Really big. And it’s kind of all over the map, so to speak. So it’s certainly not a knock to the pride to look for some advice when visiting.

The sprawling city is well serviced by public transportation, and each time you exit your station it’s almost like you’re in another city. With all that diversity and more history and sights than you can shake a stick at, Matador destination expert for Berlin, EElisam, can point you in the right directions.

She lists Costa Rica, Canada, Jamaica, and Turkey as some of her favourite countries she’s visited, and looks forward to the day when she travels to Japan, Finland, Mongolia, and Hawaii (among others).
