Since the fall of the Iron Curtain and the end of division by the Berlin Wall, the city has experienced architectural and cultural renewal to become the epitome of a twenty-first century global metropolis: young, dynamic and international. But Berlin hasn’t ever denied its eventful history. Reflected in the steel and glass of the Reichstag’s cupola and the postmodern shopping centres are opulent, historic buildings of the imperial era, alongside monuments and memorials of the post-war period. The reconstruction of the Prussian City Palace embodies Berliners’ cosmopolitan sense of tradition at its very best: this year, behind the historic façades, the state-of-the-art Humboldt Forum is to become a meeting place for the world’s cultures and nations. Berlin’s creative and start-up scene also draws its inspiration from this rich contrast; since 2006 the city has been honoured with the title ‘UNESCO City of Design’.
