Glamorous in the Roaring Twenties, destroyed during World War II and divided afterwards, rebuilt in the 1950s, and now reunited, Berlin is a city of vibrant contrasts where diverse cultures form a multihued urban fabric. Derelict former Communist neighborhoods have been reincarnated as haunts for artists and designers while elsewhere the citys old traditions are also still very much alive. Places Angelika Taschen recommends you stay while visiting Berlin include everything from classic hotels like The Regent Berlin, bed and breakfast-style pensions such as Nurnberger Eck and Askanischer Hof in Charlottenburg, or the serviced apartments Lux 11 in Berlin-Mitte. And of course none of the hotel books would be complete without a copious helping of hotspots to visit and places at which to eat and drink during your stay. Favorite recommendations for Berlin: include Ludwig Mies van der Rohes New National Gallery, the Helmut Newton Foundation, a curry wurst stand in Prenzlauerberg where Berlins signature dish was invented and a ballroom nearly a century old.
