CNN's global series i-List takes you to a different country each month. In February, we visit Germany and look at changes shaping the country's economy, culture and social fabric.

(CNN) -- A sprawling, culturally rich capital city, Berlin has much to offer visitors -- and there will be no shortage of them this month.

Thousands are expected to flock to the city for the 61st annual Berlin International Film Festival, which runs from February 10 through to February 20.

Sitting alongside Cannes and Toronto as one of the most prestigious international events on the festival calendar, the Berlinale draws everyone from Hollywood stars and industry movers and shakers to everyday cinephiles.

Berlin may be spread out, but those rushing between screenings can take heart in the fact there's plenty to explore around the festival's main venues.

Use the interactive above to plan where to visit, what to see and where to shop and eat. Full contact details below.
