Berlin has remarkably reconstructed itself after World War II, especially since the reunification push after the fall of the wall in 1989. Home to several cafes, clubs and bars, this capital city of Germany is globally recognized for its lively and entertaining nightlife. Featuring several museums, palaces and other historic sites, Berlin is renowned as a world-city showcasing the latest in culture, politics, media and science. Flourishing as a popular tourist destination and a continental hub for air and rail transportation, most significant industrial headquarters located here include biomedical engineering, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, electronics, renewable energy, traffic engineering and information technology.
A relatively young European City which was originally founded in the 13th century, German is the most widely spoken language used here, alongside a little of English. Served by the Tegel International Airport which is well connected with the rest of the world, Berlin as a transport hub is also well connected by rail and road services, within Germany and many parts of Europe.
