Must-sees in Berlin
This monumental gate is the most important and by far the most well-known in Berlin. It started out as a symbol of peace in the 18th Century but was then part of the great divide between East and West Germany. Today the gate is once again the symbol of unification.
This wall has of course demolished, but some remains can still be seen. Pay a visit to Checkpoint Charlie, view the work of graffiti artists and try to empathize with the past. Consider the events of 9 November 1989 and know that over 200 people were killed trying to flee from the East Berlin to free West Berlin.
In addition to a busy traffic junction, this place also forms the beating heart of the city. Around the square you will find many shopping centers, plenty of entertainment to keep you busy for hours and bold architecture. The Sony Center is certainly a building to turn your attention to.
This gigantic field of concrete columns certainly does not appeal to everyone. The site commemorates the Jewish victims of WWII and has been controversial from the start of the construction. In total it is built of more than 2,700 concrete blocks. There is no central entrance; the square can be approached from all sides.
Take a look underneath the city? Discover the old bunkers and tunnels that were dug out by East Germans in their attempts to flee to the west. This underground world has been skillfully mapped and during weekends guided tours are available.
