.The House of Parliament is a jewel to visit. And of course you'll take a bath in one of the exquisite bathhouses. The public transport is perfect, but you can also easily grab a bike and tour around the city.In the evening there's the swinging Jewish Quarter with fun 'ruin bars' to have a drink and enjoy some fine jazz-music. We loved Jedermann.
