If there’s one city on every creative’s must-visit list, it’s Berlin. The German capital is renowned for its art and music scene, its residents with experimental, contemporary style and the independent stores that push the boundaries, as well as the urban grittiness that comes as part of its history of the Cold War and two separate states. One of the best ways to experience the uniqueness of this city is to live like a local with Berlin’s best Airbnb apartments.
