Berlin is cheap and sexy
Berlin is capitalizing on its reputation as a trendy travel destination for backpackers on a budget.
The global financial crisis is playing straight into the city's hands as it promotes itself as "poor but sexy", reports AFP.
Cheap hostels, cool things to do and fabulous nightlife are some of the main reasons the city is a favorite among travelers looking for an inexpensive trip away.
Christian Taenzler, a spokesperson for the Berlin tourism office, told the news provider that the country is "the second biggest hub for low-cost airlines behind London".
Nearly eight million travelers ventured to the German capital in 2008, which is a rise of more than four percent since 2007.
The city's attraction includes its status as the Unesco International City of Design, illustrated by the cutting-edge architecture that characterizes the city.
Trend-setting fashion and a film-making buzz are among other factors that make Berlin the place to be.
