The big city of Berlin has a lot to offer any visitor! When you’re visiting Berlin you are definitely going to want to make the most out of your time there. I would recommend spending 3 days in Berlin. Here is my Berlin 3 day itinerary so you can , make the most of some of Berlin’s must see attractions.


Day 1 in Berlin

Free Walking Tour

Head to Brandenburger Tor (Brandenburg Gate) and find a tour guide here – they’re holding red umbrellas! On the way here check out the Berliner Dom (cathedral) with it’s impressive dome. I couldn’t recommend a free Berlin walking tour enough. It’s the ideal start to any Berlin itinerary as it covers some of the best tourist attractions in Berlin, whilst being full of information.

Reichstag Building

Your free walking tour will end where it started – the iconic Brandenburg Gate – and close by to here is the world famous Reichstag Building. This is currently the home of the German parliament. Usually the dome is open to visitors!


Next to the Reichstag is one of the city’s fantastic parks – Tiergarten. It is one of the largest of it’s kind in the country and Berlin’s most popular inner city park.

Berliner Fernsehturm for Sunset

After relaxing in the park for a while, it’s time to head to Germany’s tallest building to get the best view of the city for sunset. The Berlin TV tower stands at 368m tall altogether but the public observation deck stands at 203m.

Evening Wander and Drink by the River Spree

In the summer months there’s an amazing atmosphere around the city at night. Just soak it up by wandering around and maybe grab a cool drink from a supermarket and enjoy it next to the river!

Day 2 in Berlin

Bonanza Coffee

Day 2 of my 3 day Berlin itinerary starts as any day should start…with coffee! Bonanza coffee roasters are found at three different locations in the city. Head to their café on Oderberger Street this morning.

Lila Bike Hire

This is the best price for bike hire I’ve seen around the city – 8€ for the first day, 5€ for each day after that (prices correct August 2018). Berlin is such a vast city so it’s ideal to hop on a bike and have a cycle round – quicker than walking, more interesting than taking public transport.

Self-Guided Street Art Tour Around Kreuzberg

There is so much street art and graffiti to see in and around Berlin, especially in the neighbourhood of Kreuzberg. I have written my own guide to exploring some of the murals around here so make sure you check that out!

East Side Gallery

No Berlin 3 day itinerary would be complete without a trip to the East Side Gallery. This is thought to be one of the largest and longest standing open air galleries in the world. It takes up almost 1.4km of the former Berlin wall, which is now covered in 105 murals. It is totally free to visit and certainly a must do in Berlin.

Berlin Wall Memorial

This is a very important point of interest in Berlin with a lot of history behind it. It is an open air exhibition that is free to visit. You can find it on Bernauer Straße and Ackerstraße.

Humbolthain Park

This park has an amazing open air swimming pool which even has a water slide (fun for ALL the family I assure you).  Humboldthain Flak Tower (Flakturm III), is a former WW2 bunker which is open for tours. It is also a great spot to watch the sunset as there are fantastic panoramic views of the city from the top of the bunker. 

Day 3 in Berlin

Take the Bike Back!!

Don’t forget to take the bike back on your last day of my Berlin itinerary! You don’t want to lose your deposit.

The Juicery

Found on Oderberger Street this little juice bar is the best place to get a fresh juice, smoothie or acai bowl!

Mauer Park

Just across the world from the Juicery is the vibrant and creative Mauer Park. This was formerly part of the site of the Berlin Wall and it’s death strip. There is still a sample of the former Berlin wall remaining here. Mauer Park has become famous for it’s improvised nightlife and flea market which takes place every Sunday.

Beach Mitte

Berlin is home to some city beaches which are great, alternative places to relax. Just because you’re in the middle of a city doesn’t mean you can’t feel sand between your toes!

Go to a Nightclub

No Berlin itinerary would be complete without a trip to a nightclub. The prestigious Berlin clubbing scene is notorious for it’s long queues and dress codes. When I went out in Berlin I went to Watergate in Kreuzberg, a club overlooking the River Spree.

My friends reading this will be shocked because I am definitely more of a night in that a night out person, but I would love to go back to Berlin for a night out, so it’s a MUST on this Berlin 3 day itinerary! 

Check out some of the best Berlin nightclubs here.
