Things to do in Berlin during ECTRIMS 2018

The 34th European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis Congress takes place this October (10-13) in Berlin, Germany. We’ve put up a list with accommodation options you can choose from and also worked on this blog article with what you can do while in Berlin. Enjoy!


Spend a day at Museum Island

Situated on the Spree, the Museum Island is a UNESCO-listed World Heritage Site comprised of 5 of Berlin’s most important museums: the Altes Museum, Alte National Galerie, Neues Museum, Bode-Museum and the Pergamon Museum.

The first institution to open was the Altes Museum in 1830, designed by Karl Friedrich Schinkel who worked on several Neoclassical monuments around Berlin at that time. The Neues Museum is home to the Egyptian bust of Nefertiti. Opened in 1859, the museum was reopened in 2009 having been wrecked in the war.

The last was the Pergamon Forum from 1930. The spectacular Pergamonmuseum is one of the world’s major archaeological museums. You can see there a partial recreation of the Pergamon Altar (170–159 BC), the two-storey Roman Gate of Miletus (29 metres wide and almost 17 metres high) and the Ishtar Gate of Babylon, dating from the reign of King Nebuchadnezzar (605–563 BC).


Visit Berlin-Dahlem Botanical Garden and Botanical Museum

You might not know but the second largest botanical garden in the world (the first one being Kew Gardens in England) was first established as a kitchen garden in 1679. The Botanical Garden in Berlin the evolved from a kitchen garden growing vegetables to a huge place, and in 1879 the Royal Botanical Museum was founded.

The gardens are home to plants that are endangered in their natural habitats and threatened with extinction elsewhere in the world. Must see displays include the giant water lilies, carnivorous plant specimens, flowered vines, rock cliff waterfalls, timber bamboo reaching to the sky, and a carpet of ferns, orchids, and bromeliads.

The Botanical Garden spreads over 43 hectares and houses close to 22,000 plant species. You most likely won’t have time to see everything is one day. To make the most of your time, don’t miss the Great Pavillion, which is currently the largest glass house in the world.


Wine & dine at the Hall of Mirrors in Clärchens Ballhaus

Situated in the side wing of Clärchens Ballhaus, a dancing venue set up in 1913 in Wilhelmine Germany shortly before World War I, this mirrored ballroom still captures the spirit of those long gone days.

The place was reopened to the public in 2005, with the interior largely untouched and unchanged, offering guests a glimpse at the Golden Twenties in Berlin when it used to be a authentic dancing venue.

Nowadays the place hosts regular dining events, literary soirées and private events. Most Sunday evenings, you can attend jazz and classical chamber concerts taking place here.

Stockholm at a glance

The name Stockholm comes from the words “stock” meaning “log” and holm meaning “islet.” Stockholm is built on 14 islands connected by 57 bridges. Over 70 museums are spread across the city, covering an interesting mix of topics and attractions and showcasing the city’s heritage. On the shortest day, Stockholm’s inhabitants see only six hours of sunlight, while on the longest day they enjoy up to 21 hours.


Gamla Stan


Gamla Stan is where the capital was founded in 1252 and it currently represents one of the best preserved medieval city centres in Europe. In Stockholm’s Old Town, the cobblestone streets are reserved for pedestrians only. Even now cellar vaults and frescoes from the Middle Ages can be found behind the visible facades.

In Gamla Stan, you can visit several churches and museums including Sweden’s national cathedral Stockholm Cathedral and the Nobel Museum. Of course, one of the main attraction is t is the Royal Palace, one of the largest palaces in the world with over 600 rooms. Attending the parade of soldiers and the daily changing of the guard is something you’ll definitely like!




Located on Royal Djurgården, Skansen is the first open-air museum in the world. Its 150 buildings tell Sweden’s story from the past 500 years. Some say that Skansen is Sweden in miniature. Swedish traditions such as Midsummer, Walpurgis Night and Lucia are celebrated at Skansen.

The museum attracts more than 1.3 million visitors each year. One of the top attractions is the full replica of an average 19th-century town. The great part is that you’ll even see craftsmen in traditional dress such a shoemakers, bakers, etc. showcase their skills as if time has stopped.

The open-air zoo boasts a large number of Scandinavian animals including the bison, brown bear, moose, grey seal, lynx, otter, red fox, reindeer, wolf, etc.


The Vasa Museum


This maritime museum in Stockholm is famous worldwide because it is where you can see the warship Vasa, the only almost fully intact 17th century ship in the whole world. The Vasa sank in 1628 in Stockholm and was raised from the seabed 333 years later. The Vasa Museum opened in 1990 and it is said to be the most visited museum in Scandinavia.


The ABBA Museum

This is definitely a must-see for music fans out there. The museum opened in 2013 and is actually an interactive exhibition about the pop band, following its history from folk singers to music icons. The interactive elements include performing on stage with the band and mixing a studio recording.
