Berlin is a very common travel destination, which means that, as a travel lover, chances are pretty high that you’ve either been there or you’ll go there someday. It also means that there are a lot of crowded, touristy things to do in Berlin. But if you’re there for the second or third time and/or you want to do something a little off the beaten path, here are some options for you.
If you want to have a relaxing experience within the hustle and bustle that is Berlin, a great option is visiting the Liquidrom, where you can enjoy a swim with music, dimmed lighting, and light effects. There are also multiple saunas and pools to visit if you want to change things up.
Just an hour outside of Berlin’s city limits, the Forbidden City is the perfect day trip. It has a long, storied history starting as a Prussian Army military area, becoming a Nazi command center, transforming into a Soviet forces headquarter, before finally being abandoned. Now, you can visit it and see lots of fascinating history.
