Travelling in Berlin can appeal to younger mindset
Now, my girlfriend and I aren't thinking of having kids just yet as far as I'm concerned anyway but if we did have a little Buckley running around then I would love to take him to this wonderful city.
And travel writer Andreas Heimann seems to be in agreement with me, as he said the capital city offers a lot more than people think for the younger generation.
He added: "While the landmark Brandenburg Gate may not keep a child's undivided attention for long, the host of fantastically-dressed street performers around the city's best known monument certainly do the trick."
But parents or travellers with a young mindset will also be interested in what the place has to offer, I'm sure of that. The Reichstag, for instance, is a wonderful building, full of character and great design.
A venue which could enthuse both old and young is the Museum fuer Naturkunde (Natural History Museum) on the Invalidenstrasse, which has a "huge collection" of interesting features.
This includes the world's biggest Brachiosaurus skeleton, which stands at 13 metres high and there are other animals to take a snap of, such as reindeer and hippopotamuses. And with over 30 million objects in the place, you will find plenty of things to see and do.
