Beyond Mitte and Berlin's central districts, fine bars, pubs and attractions abound. Well worth a visit are the Dahlem museums complex, the vast Grunewald forest and the Havel river in the south-west, the proud town of Spandau in the north-west, and the villagey charms of Köpenick and Müggelsee in the south-east.
