Berlin-Facts
    - Good to know

    Walking time 

    Berlin has 18,328 km of streets and paths. If you wanted to walk them all, assuming you walked four kilometers an hour, eight hours a day, it would take you 573 days. And, when you need to get home there are 6,482 bus and tram stops, and subway and railway stations in Berlin.

    Brightness 

    Assuming that every kilometer of street in Berlin has an average of 33 street lamps with 50W of power, then Berlin has more than 604,816 street lamps, which use 30.2 megawatts of electricity per hour. Over a number of years, that adds up to the amount of energy produced by a volcanic eruption.

    Local recreation 

    With a total area of 51.4 square kilometers, public green spaces and parks make up 5.8% of Berlin’s total area, 892 square kilometers. That means each of Berlin’s 3,531,201 residents has an average of 14.5 square meters – less than most large Zoo animals!

    Nightlife 

    When people in Berlin want to go out, they are spoilt for choice; the city has more than 9,214 cafés, restaurants, bars, ice-cream parlors, beer gardens, cinemas, nightclubs and theatres. If they were all lined up along a single street, it would need to be at least 55 km long.

    Tourism 

    More than 2,138 sights and monuments, and far more than 12,083 retailers, mean there is plenty of sightseeing to do in Berlin. Feeling tired? After a hard day visiting all the cultural attractions in the city, shopping or a night at the theatre, Berlin offers more than 865 hotels, youth hostels and camp sites.
