Passengers are usually taken by train from the port of Warnemunde to Berlin, 150 miles southeast, but the resort town offers a seaside promenade, white-sand beach and beer gardens.
In Germany's capital city, visit the Berlin Wall Memorial to see the surviving portion of the barrier, then head to the Brandenburg Gate, which has come to symbolize the city's reunification. Most tours stop at Charlottenburg Palace, situated amid an expansive garden, as well as Bebelplatz square, home to Humboldt University, the State Opera House and an underground installation that honors the authors who were silenced when Nazis burned their books in 1933. Learn about the Holocaust at a memorial to the lost Jews of Europe, and revel in more than 6,000 years of history in the five museums on Museum Island. After browsing the shops along Kurfurstendamm boulevard, duck into a pub for a bratwurst and beer.
