Germany’s capital and its largest city, the metropolitain area of Berlin is spread across 892 km2 — that’s eight times the surface area of Paris and the equivalent of New York. Since 3 October 1990, it has been one of the 16 states of the Federal Republic of Germany, making it a city-state. When the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, Berlin had 23 districts. This number has since been reduced to 12. A full 18.3% of the city is forested. Berlin is a leading international centre of culture and arts, with 166 museums, 142 libraries and 60 theatres. It has two zoos, Berlin Zoo and the Tierpark Berlin in Friedrichsfelde. Berlin’s clubbing scene is admired and envied the world over, thanks to legendary nightclubs like the famous Kitkatclub and Berghain. Berlin is also a hotspot for cinema. Each year in February, it hosts the Berlinale, an international film festival whose top prize is called the Golden Bear.
