Paris vs Berlin: Some background

Before we delve into the Paris vs Berlin showdown here is a bit of background on each city.

Paris

Paris is the capital of France, and the most populous city too with around 2.1 million inhabitants

The city is a major travel hub into Europe, and is famous for its art, fashion, food, and culture. It’s also a very green city with around 450 parks and gardens!

Paris is also pretty big. The city is broken up into 20 administrative districts which are also known as arrondissements. It often feels like each one has it’s own subculture too.

Finally you may have heard Paris being referred to by several nicknames. The most famous being the City of Light, and the City of Love. The city of love, is self explanatory, as Paris is known for its romantic spots. But the city of light has two main theories behind it. One is that the light actually refers to enlightened intellectuals who once flocked to the city. And the other is that it was the first European city to have street lighting.

Wondering if Paris is worth visiting? Here is a useful guide.

Berlin

Berlin is the capital of Germany, and is also the biggest city in the country. Like Paris it too is a very green with about 30% of the city being natural space or woodland.

Berlin is very multicultural, with 4 universities and a number of private institutions enticing international students each year. But more than that people from 190 countries live in Berlin with the highest numbers coming from Poland and Turkey. This obviously has a major impact on things like culture and cuisine which we we go into later on in this article.

Trying to decide if Berlin is worth visiting? Here is a helpful guide.

Paris vs Berlin: which one is better for accommodation

Choosing your accommodation is a big deal when planning a trip, but between Paris and Berlin which one has the better options?

Paris

Paris is a popular place to visit, and therefore accommodation is plentiful in the city. There are lots of different neighbourhoods you can base yourself in. From the trendy and arty Montmartre to the more tourist focussed Champs de Mars.

Wherever you stay in Paris, make sure that you are close to a Metro station, as this will ensure that you can easily get around the city.

You will easily find accommodation to suit all budgets in Paris from hostels, to 5 star hotels. Just make sure you book well in advance, particularly during the summer months.

Berlin

There are some great choices when it comes to accommodation in Berlin. First time visitors will appreciate the central location and close proximity to key tourists sights in Mitte. There are also a number of bars and restaurants in the area.

You also have the uber cool setting of Kreuzberg, with it’s alternative vibe. Or Friedrichshain if you are wanting to party the night away.

Basically you will find something to suit all tastes. From hostels to 5 star hotels Berlin has it all when it comes to accommodation.

Paris or Berlin?

Both cities have excellent accommodation options. They are big and popular tourist cities that cater to all budgets and tastes.

Paris vs Berlin: which one is better for attractions

When deciding on a new city we always try to weigh up the tourist attractions and things to do. Here is a breakdown of some of the best things to do in Paris and Berlin to help you decide.

Paris

Here are some of the best things to do when visiting Paris. This is by no means an extensive list just some highlights.

The Eiffel Tower

Any to do list in Paris has to include the Eiffel Tower. There are a lot of incredible photo spots around Paris to snap pictures of the tower, but if you really want to experience it, you should plan a visit.

You need to buy your tickets online in advance because unsurprisingly this is a very popular attraction. There are different ticketing options, depending on if you plan to walk up the tower, and which levels you want to visit.

The Eiffel Tower

The Louvre

The Louvre is the most popular museum in Paris. It showcases nearly 35,000 works of art and stretches 700 metres along the Seine. Two of the most popular bits of art include the Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo.

Again, you will need to purchase your tickets for the Louvre in advance and you will be given a time slot to visit.

The Champs-Elysee

The Champs-Elysees is one of those places you have to visit once in Paris. There is so much going on around here, and don’t even get me started on the crazy drivers!

The shops around here are mostly luxury and designer, think along the lines of your Dior, Louis Vuitton, and Chanel. It’s also got a number of souvenir shops and high street brands like Sephora and Zara. Although one of our favourites has to be the Laudree store. There are a range of decadent cakes and macarons that you can purchase, and it is definitely a hell of a lot cheaper than the Louis Vuitton shop.

Arc de Triomphe

Another iconic Parisian landmark is of course the Arc de Triomphe. You can actually climb to the top of the structure for some pretty amazing views of Paris. It will cost you about €13 and is well worth the entry fee.

Sacre Coeur

This is one of the most beautiful churches in Paris, so we definitely recommend taking the trip out to Montmartre to admire this beauty. Entry is free, although you may need to queue at certain times.

One thing you will need to pay for is to get to the top of the church. There are 300 steps and once you get to the top you get a panoramic view of the city.

Sacre Coeur

Take a Seine Cruise

There is something romantic about seeing Paris from the water. You can either do a day or a night cruise and you get to float along the Seine and learn its secrets whilst gazing at the city’s attractions from the water.

There are various different companies you can book with, and they all leave from different locations. But you should book in advance to avoid missing out.

Moulin Rouge

If you are looking to see a cabaret then the Moulin Rouge is a must. It is located in the more colourful part of Paris but you can’t go to Paris without seeing the Can-Can.

If you aren’t interested in the show, we do recommend at least visiting the outside, to snap a picture of that famous windmill.

Outside the Moulin Rouge

Panthéon

The Panthéon was initially built as a church and was commissioned by King Louis XV. After the French revolution the Panthéon that was once synonymous with the monarchy became a place to honour those that passed away fighting during this time. And these days it is the final resting place for a number of historical figures.

Catacombs of Paris

One of the more unusual and macabre things to see in Paris has to be the Catacombs. Located 20 metres underground, the ossuary contains the remains of several million Parisians. These catacombs were created due to issues with overcrowding at Parisian cemeteries and for a time were forgotten.

These days it is a top tourist attraction and provides a fascinating insight into the history of Paris. You will need to book a place online in advance as numbers are capped daily.

Berlin

Now here are some of the best things to do in Berlin.

Reichstag

The Reichstag is an unmissable attraction in Berlin. It’s the seat of the German Parliament, and is actually open to the public. You do need to book a ticket online in advance but this is free, and very much worth the effort.

The dome at the top of the Reichstag

Brandenburg Gate

The Brandenburg Gate is one the most recognisable structures in Berlin, so is very much worth a visit.

East Side Gallery

Not only is the East Side Gallery the world’s largest open air gallery, but it is also the longest continuous section of the Berlin Wall that exists today.

Here you will see all those famous cartoons and political drawings that you may now associate with the wall. It’s also a very Instagrammable place in Berlin.

Berliner Dom

This is one of the more European style buildings in the city. It’s a striking cathedral located right by Museum Island, and certainly worth visiting during your trip to Berlin.

The Berliner Dom

TV Tower

For some of the best views of Berlin you should visit the TV Tower. It’s a striking part of the city skyline as you can see the TV Tower from most parts of the city. It is also the tallest building in Germany.

It sits at a height of 368 metres, although that includes the antenna. The observation deck is 203 metres above ground.

Alternatively if you want some cool photos with the TV Tower in it, head to the Park Inn Hotel. Here you can pay a small fee (around 6 Euros) to get a lift up to the top of the hotel and admire the view.

Checkpoint Charlie

Ok admittedly Checkpoint Charlie is a slightly overrated tourist attraction, but still an important part of history and worth a visit in Berlin. And in case you weren’t aware, Checkpoint Charlie was one of the most well known crossing points between East and West Berlin during the Cold War.

Museum Island

This one is a must for museum lovers. Berlin’s Museum Island is a UNESCO world heritage site, with some pretty impressive architecture. There are 5 large museums here, that you can visit, although you will need to set quite a bit of time aside to see everything here.

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror is located in a former Gestapo Headquarters, and is a museum that gives a very raw account into the rise and fall of the nazi party. It’s difficult at times, but that is why you should go.

DDR Museum

For an interactive experience on life in East Berlin visit the DDR museum. It provides a fascinating insight and you can sit in a Trabant.

Inside the DDR Museum

Charlottenburg Palace

Berlin has over 30 palaces but the most popular is Charlottenburg Palace. It is free to explore the gardens but you do need to pay for entry if you want to see the inside.

Paris or Berlin?

Personally we think Paris is the better city for attractions. I mean you have world class museums like the Louvre, and the Eiffel Tower, which is probably the most famous structure in Europe. That being said Berlin does have a lot of museums, and with its incredible history it is certainly a very interesting place to visit. You definitely won’t be bored in either place.

Paris vs Berlin: which one is prettier

Europe is incredibly beautiful, but you might be wondering if Paris or Berlin is the prettier city.

Paris

Paris is a city that exudes beauty. I mean don’t get me wrong there are some parts of the city that feel dirty and plain, but as a whole it’s a a really beautiful place. And there are so many different parts of Paris to admire all this beauty.

For instance you can walk the magical streets of Montmartre admiring the architecture and stunning city views. Or you can stroll along the Seine on a sunny day and appreciate the views of the Eiffel Tower.

Aerial view over Paris

Berlin

Quite honestly Berlin is a bit cold in terms of design and beauty. Given its history it is obviously not hard to understand why. It’s very different architecturally to other European cities and isn’t the idyllic European wonder other places are.

There are a lot of beautiful elements though, you have the Brandenburg Gate, and Charlottenburg Palace which are incredibly beautiful. But overall we found bits of the city to be quite sterile.

Aerial view over Berlin

Paris or Berlin?

Paris without a doubt is the more picturesque city. The architecture, parks, and cute cafes and bars make it such a beautiful place to explore.

Paris vs Berlin: which one has the better vibe

I know measuring a city by ‘vibe’ is an ambiguous statement but hear us out.

Paris

Paris has a more classical and traditional vibe in parts, and an edgy arty vibe in others. In fact it feels like no neighbourhood in Paris feels the same. There is a complete mix of everything depending on where you go.

Berlin

Berlin has this super cool, chic, and creative vibe. There is this air of not giving a toss or conforming. It’s very edgy with modern ideas. There are also some super cool neighbourhoods and bars that feel almost exclusive.

Paris or Berlin?

This is definitely a personal preference. We enjoyed Paris a lot more, because there are parts of it that feel more relaxed and casual than Berlin. But if you are creative, and edgy then Berlin might be for you.

Paris vs Berlin: which one is easier to get to

Obviously how easy it is to get to a city will have a bit impact on whether or not you visit. Here is a breakdown of Paris and Berlin.

Paris

Paris is a very well connected city and is quite easy to get to.

The majority of people will end up flying into Paris. The two biggest airports in the city are Charles de Gaulle airport and Paris Orly.

Charles de Gaulle is the biggest airport and the majority of Air France flights start and end here. From the airport you can hop on a train, which will get you into the centre of Paris in about 30 minutes, or grab a taxi. An Uber will cost you around €50.

From Paris Orly you have the option of getting a bus, tram, or train. And for more information you can have a look at the airport website. A taxi will cost around €40 – €50 depending on which part of Paris you are going to.

If you are arriving via train Paris Gare du Nord is the most popular train station, especially if you are coming from the UK. Gare du Nord is a conveniently located station, and from here you can either hop on a metro to other parts of Paris, or just walk from here. It’s incredibly close to areas like Montmartre and a 22 minute walk to Sacre Coeur.

Berlin

Considering it is the capital of Germany Berlin is a very popular destination. The main airport is Berlin Brandenburg Airport which opened in 2020. Here you have several European and international flights.

The airport is very well connected when it comes to public transport. The quickest and easiest way to get into Berlin city centre is to get the Airport Express from station T1-2. Trains depart 4 times an hour, and take around 30 minutes to get you into Berlin Central Station. From here you then make your way to your hotel/ destination by using the S Bahn (to the outskirts of Berlin) or U Bahn (Berlin city) networks.

Paris or Berlin?

Both cities are very well connected, but Paris is probably the easier one to get to. There are a lot more options for getting to Paris, especially from the US and the UK.

Paris vs Berlin: which one is easier to get around

Here we look at whether Paris or Berlin is the easier city to get around.

Paris

One of the good things about Paris is that the public transport system is very easy to use. It’s reliable, and efficient, and if you use Googlemaps alongside it for instance you shouldn’t have any issues.

You will probably find yourself mostly using the Metro which is the underground train system in the city. The Metro will get you to the majority of tourist sites in Paris.

To use public transport as a visitor to Paris you can purchase the Paris Visite card. It’s charged at different day rates, but for 3 days you are looking at paying €29.40 for an adult for zones 1-3, and €59.20 for an adult for zones 1-5.

We ended up overpaying for the pass and opted for the zones 1-5 which we didn’t need. You only need zones 1-5 if you are travelling to Disneyland Paris or Versailles. If you are sticking to the centre of Paris, which includes all your main tourist attractions, you only need zones 1-3. Believe me this information will save you a lot of money!

You can purchase your tickets at any metro station. All the ticket machines we encountered had English Language options so you shouldn’t have too much issue purchasing them. You just need to validate them each time you use public transport.

Berlin

Berlin has a very reliable public transport network. Which is definitely good news, considering how spread out it is. The U-Bahn is probably going to be your main port of call when it comes to getting around in the city. It operates 10 different lines and takes you to almost every corner of the city.

Buses and trams are also a good way to get around the city, although we recommend using these alongside Googlemaps to help you work out where you need to get off. Buses are found all over Berlin, however trams are only found in the eastern part.

You can purchase single tickets on public transport or purchase a 24 hour, or 7 day ticket. Tickets are valid on all forms of public transport – just make sure you have paid for the right amount of zones.

Paris or Berlin?

Both Paris and Berlin have excellent public transport links, making it easy to get around.

Paris or Berlin: which one is better for food

Are you a foodie and wondering if Paris or Berlin is the better choice for you? Well, read on.

Paris

Food in Paris is incredible. But just to clarify it’s not all snails and frog legs. I mean they exist but there is so much more on offer in the city. For starters a lot of the boulangeries and pâtisseries stock the most amazing foods like baguettes, croissants, pastries, eclairs, and way more.

Then you also have the comforting French food like French Onion Soup, Steak and Fries, and even Beef Bourguignon. Pair all of that with a top quality glass of wine and you have a winning combination. Oh and have I mentioned the cheese?

Basically if you are into food, Paris will be a dream for you.

Cheese and wine at a Paris cafe

Berlin

If you like food, particularly street food you will love Berlin. It’s very multicultural with influences from around the world. In fact they do some of the best Doner Kebabs we have ever tasted.

You can find your traditional currywurst and schnitzel style dishes here, but the real foodie experiences are in the local restaurants and street food hotspots.

Currywurst is a must in Berlin

Paris or Berlin?

While Berlin has a more international flavour when it comes to food, we love all things cheese, pastry, and desserts so Paris is our winner.

Paris vs Berlin: which one is better for nightlife

If you are wanting to dance the night away, you may be wondering is Paris or Berlin is better for nightlife.

Paris

The nightlife in Paris is honestly pretty fantastic. And we found that there is a little something for everyone. For something more low key cafe stay open quite late, and you can sip wine or drink beers as you chat with your friends.

The quality of the nightlife in Paris all depends on where you go, and what you enjoy. Places like Le Maris and Pigalle, are our favourites for cocktail lounges and cafes, and Bastille is one of the best spots for clubbing in the city.

Cocktails at Experimental Cocktail Club in Paris

Berlin

Clubbing in Berlin is a big deal, and it is home to some of Europes coolest nightclubs. The city is all about late night entertainment.

The good news for those not into clubs though is that Berlin also has a lot of quirky bars, particularly cocktail bars.Don’t expect bars to open before 8pm, or for places to get going before 10 or 11pm.

But if you are prepared to stay out late, you will find something to suit your taste when it comes to nightlife in Berlin.

Paris or Berlin?

Deciding if Paris or Berlin is better for nightlife will of course depend on your own preferences. We enjoyed Paris way more. For starters bars open a lot earlier, and have way more atmosphere earlier in the evening. We also appreciate the cafe culture of sipping wine and watching the world go by.

If clubbing is more your thing though Berlin will be the better option.

Paris vs Berlin: which one is better for culture

If you love culture, you might be wondering if Paris or Berlin is the better destination for your trip.

Paris

Culture is a big deal in Paris. The culture in the city is defined by so many different things and it is also vastly different depending on which neighbourhood or arrondissement you find yourself in.

But that being said overall for culture lovers, Paris is a real treat. From its numerous museums, architectural masterpieces, literary history and so much more you will find so much to explore. In fact when you think of European culture Paris is the first place people think of (or maybe that’s just me!).

Cafe culture in Paris

Berlin

Berlin is a hotspot for artists and filmmakers. You can almost feel the creativity wafting through the air as you walk the streets. There are also a number of museums where you can learn about the world, and history.

Berlin played a major role in the Cold War, with the city being split in two, and this history has certainly shaped a lot of the culture in the city today.

It’s a very unique experience, and very different to the rest of Germany.

Street art in Berlin

Paris or Berlin?

Paris and Berlin both have interesting cultures that you can experience by visiting. Personally we prefer Paris and lets face it the whole city is pretty much synonymous with culture.

Paris vs Berlin: which one is better for safety

Safety is an important consideration when visiting any city. So is Paris or Berlin safer?

Paris

In our experience we found Paris incredibly safe for a big European city. That’s not to say that you don’t need to be careful though.

The tourist areas are all safe, and many of these are monitored by armed police. You do get a lot of scammers who target tourists though. So just be mindful of this.

Pickpocketing is also incredibly common around tourist areas or on the Metro. Make sure you keep an eye on your belongings, particularly handbags.

Walking around Paris at night is relatively ok. Most of the central neighbourhoods or tourist spots are pretty bustling even after dark, so you will find safety in numbers.

Civil unrest/ protests are also common. It’s just a case of being vigilant and avoiding mass protests. Also follow the news if you can so that you know what is going on in the city when you visit.

Terrorism is another issue in France. While it is rare there have been incidents in the past. All the tourist spots in the city are heavily patrolled by armed police or the army. Just stay alert, but also remember these aren’t every day incidents that occur.

Berlin

We didn’t encounter any issues with safety in Berlin, although there were some areas we visited that felt slightly sketchy, particularly at night. For instance getting off the U-Bahn, at some of the stations there were large groups of men gathered around which would be a bit intimidating for a lone female traveller.

Apart from this though it was generally fine. You do need to keep your wits about you, like you would anywhere though. Try to avoid looking lost or like a tourist, as you may get targeted for things like pickpocketing or petty theft.

Paris or Berlin?

Berlin and Paris are both relatively safe cities, especially if you are sticking to the main tourist areas. Have your wits about you in both places though and you should be ok.

Paris vs Berlin: which one is better for couples

Wondering if Paris or Berlin is better for a romantic break? Here are our thoughts.

Paris

Paris has of course famously earned itself the nickname of the city of love, and is a very popular spot for honeymoons, and romantic weekend escapes. So it is unsurprising that you will find a number of romantic things to do in this fine city.

It feels like the world is your romantic oyster in Paris, and you can do things like taking a romantic cruise down the Seine, sipping Champagne on the Eiffel Tower, or just having a picnic in one of the many atmospheric parks in the city.

Sipping Champagne at the top of the Eiffel Tower

Berlin

Berlin has some excellent date night spots including world class bars and restaurants. It’s a fun place to explore for a romantic mini break with it’s grungy alleyways, cool museums, and trendy neighbourhoods. It might not be the first place you think of when you think of a romantic European break, but there are things to do as a couple.

Paris or Berlin?

Let’s be honest you cannot go up against Paris in the battle of most romantic city and expect to win. And Paris really is a romantic place to visit with so many things catered to couples.

Paris vs Berlin: which one is better for families

If you are travelling as a family you might be wondering if Paris or Berlin is the better choice.

Paris

I know that Paris might not be the first place in Europe you think of visiting with a family, but it is a good one. For one thing there are so many immersive museums in the city, making it the perfect place to admire the beauty and also learn.

Paris also has some really beautiful parks like the Jardin du Luxembourg, which is a great place for picnics, pony rides, and other family friendly activities.

Finally let’s not forget that Paris is home to Disneyland Paris. And if that doesn’t scream family fun, I don’t know what does.

Berlin

Berlin is a great option for families because it has a lot of fascinating history to learn about. It also has a palace that you can explore as well as a number of top class museums.

The DDR Museum is very interactive, and you also have museum island where you can learn about natural history and much more.

Paris or Berlin?

Paris and Berlin are both decent places to go for a family vacation. There is lots to keep the kids entertained from immersive museums, to historical sights. That being said Paris does have Disneyland so there is that!

Paris vs Berlin: which one is better for solo travel

If you are travelling alone you might be wondering if Paris or Berlin is the better choice.

Paris

Paris is a fantastic place to go if you are travelling alone. This is because there is so much to do, it’s easy to get around, and overall it is pretty safe.

There are also several day trips or tours you can book onto if you are wanting to explore the city with like minded people.

Berlin

There is so much to see and do in Berlin. So if you are travelling by yourself you will find many things to do. There are especially a lot of group tour options which is great if you are looking to meet like minded travellers.

For a large city it is generally safe which makes it a good place for solo travel. It’s also very easy to get around.

Paris or Berlin?

Both cities are great for solo travel. They are relatively safe, particularly if you stick to the tourist hotspots, and there is so much to see and do.

Paris vs Berlin: which one is cheaper

Money is a huge consideration for booking a trip. So here we look at Paris and Berlin to determine which one is cheaper.

Paris

Paris can be expensive, particularly if you are paying to go into a lot of the big tourist attractions. But there are ways to make your trip a bit cheaper.

For starters when it comes to food, you can visit fancy restaurants but you can also purchase delicious bread and pastries from grocery stores or bakeries across the city. These tend to be cheap and incredibly delicious.

For an average trip where you are visiting attractions, eating out, and enjoying some drinks, we would recommend budgeting around €100 per person per day.

Accommodation can be expensive depending on the time of year you visit. For a 4 star hotel you can expect to pay around €140 – €150 per night.

Berlin

We were actually pleasantly surprised when it came to costs in Berlin. That’s not to say it is super cheap either, but it’s not too bad for a capital city.

We budgeted about €100 per person for day, not including accommodation. You could probably get away with a bit less, but we wanted to have nice meals and go out for a few cocktails in the evenings.

Accommodation will set you back around €120 plus per night for something mid range. Just make sure you book this well in advance

Paris or Berlin?

You can do both Paris and Berlin on the cheap if you are on a budget. Overall though Paris is just slightly more expensive than Berlin when it comes to food, drink, and transport costs. It’s also more expensive for accommodation.

Paris vs Berlin: which one is better in summer

If you are visiting Europe in the summer this section will help you decide if Paris or Berlin is the better destination.

Paris

Summer is of course peak travel season in Paris. To the point where over tourism becomes a bit of a problem. Personally we wouldn’t recommend visiting the city in summer due to the sheer volume of visitors. It makes it hard to visit the attractions, and you will find yourself queuing for a lot of your holiday. Accommodation costs skyrocket at this time of year as well. So if you can avoid it we recommend you do.

Temperatures tend to range between 14°C and 26°C although it does get a lot higher with random heatwaves scattered throughout the summer. It’s the perfect time for picnics, relaxing in cafes, or enjoying the many green spaces in the city. This is obviously part of the reason tourist numbers are so high.

Berlin

Berlin is a great choice for your summer holidays. The atmosphere in the city changes, as festivals and events takeover and people flock to the outdoors. Temperatures are around 15 – 25 degrees celsius on average, and days are much brighter and longer.

Just remember that summer is peak tourist season over Europe and you will find yourself queuing for attractions and restaurants.

Paris or Berlin?

Personally we think Berlin is the better choice for visiting in the summer. It’s still incredibly busy with tourists but a bit less than Paris.

Paris vs Berlin: which one is better in winter

If you are travelling during the winter months you might be wondering if Paris or Berlin is the better travel choice.

Paris

Winter is very much the off season when it comes to travelling to Paris. But that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. With incredibly high tourist numbers in the summer, winter is a welcome break for those that want a more authentic Parisian experience.

The weather is cool with average lows of 3°C and highs of 8°C. So it’s not ideal for outdoor activities, but it’s perfect for cosying up in cafes, or visiting the many museums in the city.

Berlin

Berlin is a great winter destination, in part because come December you have the Christmas Markets. Smells of mulled wine and gingerbread waft through the city.

In January and February despite the colder weather, there is still a lot to do. There are lots of museums to visit, and you can cosy up in a cafe or a bookstore.

Temperatures average between minus 5 and 4 degrees celsius. So make sure you dress appropriately.

Paris or Berlin?

Paris and Berlin are both good choices for a winter break. They both offer a respite from the busy summer tourist months, and there is plenty to do in each city.

Paris vs Berlin: which one is for me

Well done for making it to the end of this epic list. And now it is time to decide if Paris or Berlin is the best place to go for your next European break. Before we decide here is a final recap.

Paris

Paris is one of the most popular places to visit in Europe. This is both good and bad. It can be overcrowded, but it is for good reason. With its incredible cafe culture, stunning landmarks, and mouthwatering food it is easy to see why Paris is a tourist favourite.

Berlin

Berlin exudes cool, it’s the capital of Germany and has an incredible history. It’s the perfect city break for those wanting to party, learn about the past and much more.

Paris or Berlin?

It’s really a hard call deciding between Paris and Berlin. And ultimately it will come down to preference. Both cities have a lot of tourist attractions, top class museums, and fascinating cultures.

Paris is well suited for those that want to get away for a couples or family break, and are attracted by the sights like the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame for example. On top of that lovers of literature and cafe culture will adore Paris.

On the other hand if you want to go clubbing, or get stuck into the art scene, Berlin might be your best bet.
