So popular with the art scene Berlin even has its own island full of galleries which you cannot miss out on.

Stuck between West or East side of Berlin? A hidden gem to look out for are Ampelmann’s across the city, located on several pedestrian crossings. Created during the unity of Berlin, Ampelmann shows whether you are on East or West side of Berlin. A curious icon to the east city.
