Is it possible to explore Berlin free of charge? If you’re on a tight budget then you’re in luck: the answer is yes! The fact that this global metropolis offers so many freebies is hardly a secret. In the vibrant German capital there’s always something going on. You’re guaranteed to be in for some real fun. While many of the city’s most popular attractions charge for entry, there’s also a broad selection of freebies on offer!

Berlin’s wide range of free activities is bound to impress and some of the secrets are hidden in plain sight. For example, the radio station 105.5 Spreeradio offers free entry to many cultural institutions as part of their “Berliner Schätze” (English: Berliner Treasures) campaign. Each day a venue is announced on the radio. Visitors can then head there to claim free entry by using the password “105.5 Spreeradio – The 50/50 Mix”.

In the vibrant Kreuzberg district the children’s youth circus, Cabuwazi, also invites visitors in for free entry. The attractions offer a mixture of theatre, dance, circus tricks and music that are both interactive and free of charge. Check out the list below to see 30 other fun and free activities to enjoy with kids.

Why not pay a visit to the Knoblauchhauses in Berlin Nikolaiviertel? This well preserved mansion was built in the 18th century and is considered to be one of the most beautiful private houses in the city. Now, as a museum, the Knoblauchhauses offers a free-of-charge insight into Berlin upper class culture during the Biedermeier period.

While visiting the iconic Brandenburg Gate, why not take a detour and check in at the nearby Europäisches Haus (European House)? The institution offers access to a permanent exhibition, giving insight into the historical and political aspects of the European Union. Entry is free of charge, and visitors can enjoy interactive exhibits and discussions.

These are just a handful off the exciting activities on offer free of charge within the city. Our practical map, shown below, offers a concise overview of many of the great activities available to explore free of charge. While all of this comes without a price tag, please bear in mind that donations are welcome at many of venues, and also be aware that free entry may be limited to specific times. More detailed information is provided on the respective websites of each location.
