Berlin is both the capital of Germany and its largest city. Although documented in the 13th Century, some regard it as one of Europe’s newer cities, following rapid growth and industrialisation during the mid-nineteenth century. Much of the city was devastated during WWII, but some beautiful architecture is still preserved. In recent history, it has famously been segregated and reunified.
Today, Berlin is a dynamic world city filled with culture and natural beauty. Many revere it for its commerce, sporting events and modern architecture. Entrepreneurs, students and tourists flock to the city and its many attractions, including a world-renowned orchestra, art scene and festivals. Forests, parks and waterways make up about one-third of the city, which enjoys a temperate seasonal climate and is home to approximately 3.7 million people.
