Some Facts about Berlin
More museums than rainy days per year
There are 180 museums in Berlin and on average 106 rainy days. So even if you tried to use the bad weather for cultural enrichment you’d have a hard time getting through them all in a year (and that’s if you had nothing else to do.)
More bridges than Venice
Venice might be known for its romantic canals but Berlin beats the city in terms of bridges. With around 1,700 of them, it is also said that Berlin has more waterways than Amsterdam, Stockholm and Venice combined.
Leading the way in opera houses
Berlin is home to three stunning opera houses, which can house over 4,400 visitors. No other city comes close to these world-class concert halls. The city is also home to over 150 theatres and halls for music and art events, dotted all around the city.
2.2 kilometres of beer
The longest beer garden in the world is actually not in Bavaria, but in the northern capital city. The annual International Berlin Beer Festival runs 2.2 kilometres, making it the longest worldwide.
It has an outsize international population
An estimated half a million people living in Berlin come from somewhere outside of Germany. That’s right, you and your expat cliques from 185 recorded countries make up about 14% of the city’s population. Berlin is truly multi-cultural, with half a million foreigners making a home here.
