Berlin is by evidence the largest city in Germany while it also serves as the capital of the country. Berlin is influenced by a temperate seasonal climate which is a result of the location of the city on the European Plain. About a third of the city of Berlin is composed of forest parks, gardens, rivers, and lakes making it a natural scenic beauty. As a result, this makes the city a center of tourist attractions.

Berlin is a world city full of culture, media, politics, and science as well as rich history where it has served as the administrative capitals of several European kingdoms during its history.

The metropolis of Berlin is a major tourist destination as a result of a number of things such as its high-tech firms, a continental hub for air traffic and rail traffic and world-renowned museums and entertainment venues. The city has also been the host to numerous sporting events over the years.

The city is even more popular as a tourist attraction for its festivals, diverse architecture and design, nightlife and contemporary arts. Berlin has also recently and increasingly become a popular location for international film productions due to the world’s oldest large-scale movie studio complex.
