Berlin is known for its multi-culturalism, lively nightlife, its many cafés, clubs, bars, street art, and numerous museums, palaces, and other sites of historic interest.
The city is a combination of glamour and grit, historical and forward-thinking. Berlin is a city that truly never sleeps - from tiny basement clubs to mega clubs, Berliners can be found partying not just after dark and on weekends.
Berlin is one of the safest and most tolerant of European cities, but it has some not-so-well maintained areas, too. Walking about at night, even for a woman alone, is not usually dangerous.
Of course, you should keep your wits about you, just as you would at home. In the bordering neighbourhood of the districts Neukölln and Kreuzberg (between Hermannplatz, Schönleinstrasse to Kottbusser Tor) and Wedding (Moabit and Gesundbrunnen) the risk of falling victim to robberies and assaults is slightly higher.
Berlin is ideally suited for digital nomads living in Europe. The city has an entrepreneurial spirit, the cost of living is extraordinarily affordable especially compared to other cities in Western Europe, there are hundreds of cafes offering wifi, and is full of young people, great food, hundreds of cafes and late night bars and clubs.
Summer (May - September) is by far the best season to visit Berlin. The city’s residents take full advantage of the decent weather to hit the streets, rivers and lakes and partake in endless events across the city.
Winter, on the other hand, is freezing. Temperatures tend to range in the 20- to 30-degree Fahrenheit range.
