Berlin is a city of diversity. There are countless exciting places that insiders and influencers say you have to see! The Festival of Lights team has put together a few special tips for places that are definitely worth a visit and that are especially close to our hearts. They will be available here shortly…

Hotel de Rome Roof Terrace – the best view in the whole city.

Enjoy a perfectly mixed drink on the glamorous roof terrace and watch the glow of this year’s FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS. High above the city, this is the place to relax, toast a lovely evening with friends or be warmed by the golden autumn sun during the day.

More information is available here.

Berlin Cathedral

The dome of the Berlin Cathedral rises in the heart of the city. The monumental building was intended to be nothing less than Emperor Wilhelm II’s Berlin answer to St Peter’s Basilica in Rome. The church owes its incomparably splendid design in neo-Renaissance and neo-Baroque style to this claim.

From the dome walkway you can enjoy a spectacular panoramic view over Berlin.

Berlin Cathedral, Am Lustgarten, 10178 Berlin

Afterwards, attend the evening performance of legendary film comedian Charlie Chaplin at Lunapark, the amusement park at Berlin’s Halensee and challenge your luck at the wheel of fortune.
