                                Berlin’s edgy and artistic reputation often precedes any first time visitor&#8217;s trip to the German capital, either tainting or painting expectations, depending upon who you’ve spoken with. And no doubt, Berlin&#8217;s nightlife and avant garde scenes remain as vibrant as ever, ready to reward nearly any curiosity with an intensity found nowhere else. But Berlin is also an <a href="http://www.unesco.org/new/en/culture/themes/creativity/creative-cities-network/design/berlin/"  rel="noopener noreferrer external" data-wpel-link="external">UNESCO City of Design</a>, with its storied hedonistic appetites matched by the city&#8217;s glorious palette of design and architecture spanning the Baroque to the Bauhaus, with a little Postmodern and Brutalist thrown in for good measure.
