  • Berlin, 10117

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

Reichstag

Reichstag

  • Berlin, 11011

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

  • Berlin, 10117

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

Kurfurstendamm (Ku'damm)

  • Kurfurstendamm Karree
  • tel:+49 (0)30 25 0025 (Tourist Information)
  • Berlin, 10707

The Kurfurstendamm, or Kudamm as locals say, is Berlin's answer to London's Oxford Street – this beautiful tree lined boulevard is packed with fancy shops and cafes, Christmas markets in winter and blossoms in spring. At the centre of the avenue stands the Gedächtniskirche or Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church that suffered severe bombing during WWII Allied raids. It has been left in ruins as a memory of the past. The magnificent department store KaDeWe would rival Harrods or Bloomingdale's with its crystal chandeliers, famous designers and scrumptious food hall, serving everything from champagne breakfasts to Marmite for all those homesick Berlin Brits. read more about Kurfurstendamm (Ku'damm)

The biggest outdoor gallery in the world, the East Side Gallery runs along the largest remaining section of the Berlin Wall, constructed by the Soviets in 1961 to divide East from West Berlin. When the Iron Curtain fell in 1989 many parts of the wall were destroyed as the city of Berlin was reunited following the end of the Cold War. 160 international artists were invited to paint giant murals along the wall that runs along the River Spree in the eastern district of Freidrichshain. The East Side Gallery has remained untouched for the last 20 years, however its future is uncertain. Restoration is planned however regeneration of the area may threaten this political landmark. read more about East Side Gallery
