Berlin is known for its history and its parties, but there is plenty more to Berlin.  Here are a few things not to miss while you are there...

Despite its name, the east side gallery isn't actually a gallery, its the longest remaining part of the Berlin wall which has been painted with many different art pieces. The wall is quite long, if you get off at Ostbanhof station you can stroll along both sides of the wall.

Cat Cafe

Enjoy a coffee and a cat at the cat cafe. Feline friends are happy to accompany you while you get your caffeine fix. You can find Pee Pee's Katzencafe on Thomasstrasse.

Breaking Mozart

This highly entertaining theatre production showcases some of Mozart's musical masterpieces in a fresh and unique way. Listen to classic pieces with an infusion of breakdancing and beatboxing. This show is at the Wintergarten and is well worth a visit.
