Berlin is the largest city in Germany, and with an area of 883 km³, it is even larger than Paris. Berlin is the only European city boasting more museums than rainy days; 170, to be precise. Berlin is also Germany's largest university city. The city is green - wonderful parks and gardens help disperse the hectic of everyday life. Whether Friedrichstrasse or the Ku'damm - Berlin is a shopper's paradise. Berlin is also considered the party and club metropolis of Europe. Nightlife is multicultural, bold, shrill and colourful. Dance the night away and party into the wee hours in one of the 200 clubs without worrying about closing times. Whether ballroom, Latin, Salsa, Tango, Swing or Breakdancing - it's all to be found in Berlin.
The fall of the Wall suddenly made the Berlin region into one of Europe's newest conurbations. After almost half a century of German and European partition, the political changes in Europe have returned Berlin, once again, to the centre of Europe. From erstwhile symbol of European division, Berlin has become a place for east-west encounter. The geographical location and vicinity to countries such as Poland and the Czech Republic means Berlin can be viewed as an indirect springboard for the easterly expansion of the County and Western dance. East meets west!
Last but not least: Berlin events have an international reputation. Whether tourist attractions, six-day cycling race, Love Parade or the Berlin Open - this city attracts visitors from all over the world.
