The capital city of Germany dating back to the 13th century Berlin is an veritable wonderland of culture, art, and innovation. Sitting just behind London as the second most populace city in Europe, its a city where centuries of history and the future itself can be felt at once. I was fortunate to be able to travel there for this year's Berlinale spending nearly all of my time strolling the streets and taking in their incredible art scene. The Bauhaus Archive is a must see for all of you Mies fans, as is C/O Berlin a gorgeous space dedicated to international photography. Make sure you spend some time in the areas of Mitte and Neukölln boasting great food and a down town vibe, and stroll along the East Side Gallery - an open-air gallery consisting of a series of murals painted directly on a 14,000 foot long remnant of the Berlin Wall.
