    To complement the German Parliament in the grand old Reichstag, are the Parliament buildings housed in a very modern Paul-Loebe House next door. With sleek mathematical lines, huge glass frontage, and...

    Situated in the Ruhleben district of West Berlin, and with so many other things to see in the city centre, you’re probably wondering if it’s worth taking the time and trouble to travel over here. Of...

  • 30. Pergamon Museum

    I was always thinking that gaping at the old, dusty vases or ruins is a complete waste of time. Who cares that it is an Umayyad art, stelea from Assur... even the perspective of seeing Ishtar Gate...

  • 31. Neue Synagoge

    Once the largest synagogue in Europe, this building was first built back in 1859-1866 by the German architect, Eduard Knoblauch. Sadly it was heavily damaged in World War Two and was rebuilt in...

  • 33. Hitlers Bunker - Führerbunker

    I am sure that Berlin changed a lot after Second World War. Hitler's bunker place is a quarter of block of flats now with a car parking. It is hard to tell if something survived under the soil, as...

  • 34. Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp

    There is a lot of information and there are exhibits and detailed accounts and explanations in both German and English.... although some of these you may not wish to read - especially the experiments...

  • 35. Kreuzberg and Prenzlauer Berg

    This monument and area is worth a visit only because it was created during the GDR days and probably would not exist today. Ernst Thälmann was leader of the German Communist Party during the Weimar...

  • 36. Sony Center

    The Sony Center (or Centre if you prefer the original English spelling) is one of the most compelling icons of modern Berlin. Situated in the heart of Potsdamer Platz which was decimated in WW2 and...

  • 37. Rotes Rathaus

    Name of Red Town Hall comes from simply the color of building. It was built in the second half of 19th century on former site of medieval Berlin houses. It is neo - Renaissance style, putting a few...

  • 38. Stasi Museum

    This museum, along with the DDR and "Checkpoint Charlie" museum, gives you the feel of the Cold War, but also how far Europe has come since the fall of the Berlin Wall. While the museum is depressing...

    more
  • 39. KaDeWe - Kaufhaus des Westens

    KaDeWe (Kaufhaus des Westens) is the largest department store in continental Europe and there's something for everyone. Even if you don't want to buy anything, I recommend a visit to the food hall,...

  • 40. Gemaldegalerie

    It was my third visit to this museum and my enthusiasm already expressed here in 2006 has not wavered. The Gemäldegalerie is and remains for me one of the four best museums of ancient paintings in...

  • 43. DDR Museum

    It´s worth a visit. The fun part is the apartment made with old things from DDR where you can go around exploring. You can eat a lunch in the restaurant - I can recommend the solijanka soup, it´s...

  • 44. Soviet War Memorial

    This is the third Soviet Memorial and cemetery in Berlin and the least known. Located in the district of Pankow it takes more of an effort to get to the memorial than the other two. I actually stayed...
