is berlin worth a visit??

Jump to last reply

Hey guys, my friend and I are planning for a trip to Germany, Austria and Prague this upcoming August. We are definitely going to visit Prague and Vienna (each for two nights). We are also going to visit maybe two small towns/cities in southern Germany besides Prague and Vienna. Both of us have been to southern germany before, but we still feel tempted to go back given that the area is so charming...

So the problem now is that whether we should fit Berlin into our very tight schedule. My friend and I have never been to Berlin and I am not sure if I will return to Europe in near future, so we thought maybe we should take a look at Berlin. I am very much a history person but somehow I am more into pre modern European history than 20th European history or WWII. so the question is, if we have only two days, should we drop by Berlin? It is sort of on our way to Prague from Frankfurt. Most of my friends who have been to Berlin highly recommended it, saying that it is a very unique city, rich of history and therefore should not be missed, even it is for only two days. While we do want to see Berlin ourselves, we were just wondering if it is worth the long train ride to go to Berlin for just a two-day trip. if we drop Berlin off our list, we might have two extra days for southern and Western Germany, places such as the Rhine valley. What do you guys think? Any advice? Thank you very much in advance!!
