With a population of almost 4 million people, Berlin is the second most populous city proper in the European Union and the seventh most populous urban area in the European Union.

Berlincan easily be considered the techno capital of Europe, which offers incredible history for travelers to explore.

As a Berlin resident who has visited literally every sight in the city, I would totally recommend you these 8 places & things to do If I were you:

Berlin TV Tower - The TV Tower (also known as the Berliner Fernsehturm) is maybe the most famous sight/attraction in Berlin that you can visit. The view from the top is breathtaking so make sure you visit it when it is sunny (which can be quite hard for Berlin).

East Side Gallery - East Side Gallery is one of my favourite spots where you can see not only the wall but also the creative genius of numerous artists that wanted to send their message regarding the Cold War or the world in general.

There is also the famous Kiss which is like the Mona Lisa of artworks in Berlin.

Museum Island - Museum Island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is located in Berlin Mitte right next to Berlin TV Tower. It is home to Berliner Dome and to some of the most interesting museums such as the Pergamon Museum.

DDR Museum - if you want to get immersed into the implication of the Cold War, GDR/DDR, then you should visit DDR Museum which is right next to Museum Island. I think it is the most visited museum in Berlin and for a reason.

Brandenburg Gate - an 18th-century neoclassical monument in Berlin, built on the orders of Prussian king Frederick William II after the (temporarily) successful restoration of order during the early Batavian Revolution.

Brandenburg Gate is located in Mitte, right next to the Reichstag.

Reichstag building - Reichstag building is maybe one of the buildings in Berlin (or even Germany) that has the most history. It currently houses the parliament. The Reichstag is we know it today is designed by Norman Foster and includes a glass dome that is particularly impressive.

When you visit the Reichstag, you actually visit the glass dome and can get an audio guide. Also, view is amazing. Note: you need to book this attraction very well in advance (at least 7 days) in order to find available slots.

Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe - also known as Holocaust Memorial or Jewish Memorial, is a memorial in Berlin to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust, designed by architect Peter Eisenman and engineer Buro Happold.

It is an impressive Memorial that is located right next to the Brandenburg Gate.

Tiergarten - the park is the most famous and largest city park in Berlin. It is located in the centre of Berlin and you can even access it from Reichstag/Brandenburg Gate/Jewish Memorial.

It offers vast land of trees, some small interesting monuments as well as the famous Siegessäule. I would definitely recommend you explore the park during a sunny day - especially by bike.
