Welcome to the new version of our website dedicated to Berlin. The city, where LatLon-Europe is based, is one of the most fascinating in Europe.

No need for formal introductions! The German capital and its turbulent history are certainly well-known. Those who have been to Berlin will tell you it is a city not only worth seeing, but living in. It has lots of important monuments and even more surprising corners. Berlin is vibrantly alive, but at the same time it is a place where history becomes tangible again. It is a multi-faceted city that will definitely not let you go.

So, for a start, take a guided tour to discover the remains of old Berlin strolling along Unter den Linden avenue and marvel at modern architecture around Potsdamer Platz and the new parliamentary district next to the Brandenburg Gate. You will be intrigued by the traces of recent, Cold War and Third Reich history, not to mention the museums. And don’t forget to explore the bohemian side of town in Prenzlauer Berg and Kreuzberg and around the Hacke courtyards.

Has it been some time since your last visit? In only five years, some parts of town go through a complete metamorphosis.

You have not been to Berlin yet? On our website you will find lots of reasons to go there soon.
