Berlin is more than 775 years old and over the decades, all generations have left their monuments and landmarks in town. The densest array of sights in Berlin lies east of the Brandenburg Gate, on either side of Unter den Linden. In the city west visitors should take a look at the broken shard of the Kaiser Wilhelm Gedächtniskirche, which serves as a brutal reminder of World War II. Close by starts the famous boulevard Kurfürstendamm.
Berlin has it all – sights, attractions and UNESCO World Heritage Sites. To recharge your batteries, it also has places of worship for all the world’s main religions, palaces, parks and gardens. Several points offer stunning views of the city, for instance, from the TV Tower or the Panoramapunkt on the 24th and 25th floors of the Kohlhoff Tower at Potsdamer Platz.
You can still sense Berlin’s turbulent past at the city’s many memorial sites or along the Berlin Wall trail – after all, this is where world history was made.
Whether you are interested in history, art or culture, Berlin has many top sights for visitors to enjoy. The museum at Checkpoint Charlie, part of the former Berlin Wall, is a must-see as is the moving Holocaust Memorial located close to the Brandenburg Gate. Not much is left of the Wall itself, but there are some sections still standing, which are hugely popular with visitors.
Culture vultures will want to visit Museum Island, home to the Berlin State Museums which house works of art from around the world. After a long day sightseeing, head for Tiergarten park to enjoy a refreshing drink at one of its many beer gardens.
