Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject Tourism, grade: alle ECTS-Punkte erreicht, Stralsund University of Applied Sciences (-), course: Attractions und Destinations Management, 9 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: At present, Berlin is more popular than almost any other European city destination. Covering the same area of about 891 square kilometres as New York Berlin unites a large number of urban districts, centres and boroughs. It is the city of encounters: about 3.4 million inhabitants from more than 180 nations form the city` s culture and lifestyle. The demolition of the Wall in 1989 marked the dawn of a new era for Berlin. Brandenburg Gate – once a symbol of the divided Germany – has again become the emblem of the German capital. Around it, the new centre of Berlin is rising up, and the future of the city becomes visible. Berlin is the political centre for decision-making in Germany. This is the seat of government, parliament, regional representation agencies and top associations of trade and industry. The region has at its disposal an environment of science and research unique in Germany. Here, technology of the future is being developed and employed today. International facilities, schools and institutes promote the exchange of ideas and international dialogue. Numerous parks and gardens, along with about 400,000 trees along the streets of the city, ensure a favourable climate in the central districts. Berlin is the city of woods, parks, rivers and lakes. A unique area of local recreation is at everyone` s doorstep. A broad range of facilities for sport, leisure and recreation is offered in Berlin- the city that never sleeps.
