This historical square is surrounded by the Humboldt university buildings, the State Opera House and the Berliner Dom. Bebelplatz stands just off the grand avenue of Unter den Linden. Bebelplatz is most famous as the place of the Nazi book burning in 1933 when members of the Nazi party burned the books of academics that they felt were unsympathetic to their political movement. This included works by Karl Marx, Alfred Kerr and Kurt Tucholsky. An underground library full of shelves of empty books stands as a memorial of this and can be seen through a glass window in the middle of the square. read more about Bebelplatz

The Brandenburger Tor stands proudly between Berlin's famous boulevard Unter den Linden and the Tiergarten. The last remaining gate left of the old Berlin, the Brandenburger Tor managed to escape severe damage during WWII. Following that, the gate stood as an iconic part of the Cold War marking the divide between East and West Berlin and it was here that US President Ronald Regan addressing a crowd of West Germans in 1987 said "Come here to this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall! read more about Brandenburger Tor

The Reichstag building, completed in 1894, represents the heart of German politics and has been a witness to the country's troubled past. From an attempted communist coup and Nazi empowerment, to the DDR, when the building stood on the edge of the Iron Curtain. The roof of the Reichstag sports a huge glass dome designed by British architect Sir Norman Foster, from which spectacular views out across the ever changing city of Berlin can be seen. Directly opposite the Reichstag is the forest canopy of the Tierpark, divided by the former Siegesallee (Avenue of Victory) which was dismantled after the fall of Hitler. The Tierpark was the former hunting ground of the Prussian princes and of Kaiser Wilhelm II. read more about Reichstag
