Places to see in Berlin

Places to see in Berlin, things to do in Berlin, Germany

1. Brandenburg Gate

The late 18th century Brandenburg Gate is one of the most famous sights of Berlin and should be on any visitor's list of things to see. Its position in no man's land at the border between the former East and West Berlin meant that, along with the Berlin Wall (constructed in 1961), it became a symbol of the city's divide – but since the fall of the Wall in 1989 it has become the symbol of a reunified Berlin. The 60 metre tall Brandenburg Gate was the main entrance to the city, and is the only gate that remains of the Berlin Wall. You can walk through the Gate at your own leisure, as it has been conveniently closed to traffic since 2002.

 

 

2. Berlin Wall

The 3.6 metre high Berlin Wall – the construction of which started in August 1961 after the East German authorities decided to close the border around the Western sectors of Berlin to prevent people from fleeing – has become a hugely recognisable symbol of the city's history. Most of the Wall has been dismantled since, but some parts still stand – the most famous being the 1,316 metre long East Side Gallery, which contains over 100 paintings and is located along Mühlenstrasse between Warschauer Strasse and the Hauptbahnhof. Other, smaller parts of the Wall can be found at the Reichstag and the Invalidenfriedhof, as well as in Bernauer Strasse (where the official destruction of the Wall started), Bornholmer Strasse, Niederkirchner Strasse and Zimmerstrasse near Checkpoint Charlie.

 

 

3. Alexanderplatz and the Fernsehturm TV tower

Alexanderplatz is arguably the most famous square in Berlin, and is referred to by locals as 'Alex'. It was the centre of East Berlin, and during the communist years was used as a showcase of socialist architecture, the most notable piece being the huge television tower (the highest building in Berlin at 365m/1,197ft tall), known as the Fernsehturm or the Telespargel (toothpick). The tower's viewing platform (at 203m high) provides views over the city that you will never forget. Other notable landmarks here include the Fountain of International Friendship and the World Time Clock.

 

 

 

4. Reichstag

Reinstated as the seat of the German Parliament when it relocated from Bonn in 1999. The building is located close to the Brandenburg Gate and was significantly reconstructed in the late 1990s, when an accessible glass dome was built over the plenary hall, making it one of the biggest tourist attractions in Berlin. You can visit the Reichstag and walk all the way to the top of the dome, which affords great views across the city, especially at night. Visitors can tour the buildings, listen to talks and even attend sittings of Parliament. Some visiting options require prior booking.

 

 

5. Potsdamer Platz

After being virtually flattened by years of conflict, Potsdamer Platz was reconstructed extensively in the 1990s, which allowed the square to emerge today as a modern cultural hotspot containing shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, and cinemas. The redevelopment in the business district led to the addition of several landmark towers, a shopping arcade, an entertainment centre and residential buildings. One of the most impressive architectural attractions is the Sony Centre, which includes an Imax theatre and an office tower. Its neighbour the Kohlhof building has an observation deck at over 90m up.

 

 

6. The Berliner Dom

Completed in 1905, Berlin Cathedral ('Berliner Dom') was inevitably damaged by the bombing during the Second World War, but reconstruction started in the 1970s and the building finally reopened to the public in 1993. The baroque-style building – influenced by the Italian Renaissance – was modified from its original design into a more simplified form during the reconstruction. The Dom can be visited daily, and features a richly decorated interior containing the magnificent Sauer's Organ, the 1530 Elector's tomb, a neo-baroque pulpit and stained glass windows. The Dom's museum, which has been open since November 2005, presents models, paintings and construction plans of the building alongside exhibitions concerning the architects and artists involved.

 

 

7. Gendarmenmarkt


Considered by many to be Berlin's prettiest square, the Gendarmenmarkt is flanked by the twin churches Deutscher Dom (German Cathedral) and Französischer Dom (French Cathedral), and the neoclassical Konzerthaus (concert house). The German Cathedral and French Cathedral were both originally constructed in the early 18th century before being destroyed during the war, but were later reconstructed. Both house small museums, and the French Cathedral has a dome which affords great panoramic views of the city. The name of the square comes from the 'Soldier King' Frederick William I, who housed his cavalry (gens d'arms) here during the 18th century.

 

 

8. Berlin Zoo and Aquarium

Founded in 1841, Berlin Zoo is Germany's oldest zoo and also one of the largest zoos in Europe, with around 14,000 animals, most of whom live in open natural habitats over the 74-acre site. The zoo has a modern birdhouse, which has over 550 different species of birds. Adjacent to the birdhouse is the zoo's highly popular aquarium, which boasts more than 250 viewing tanks containing over 9,000 fish, reptiles, amphibians, insects and many other marine creatures. And don't miss the Elephant Gate – a magnificent Oriental gate with elephant sculptures that was constructed in 1899 and restored to its former beauty in the 1980s.

 

 

9. The Jewish Museum

The Jewish Museum (Jüdisches Museum Berlin) is a lively centre and thought-provoking place that explores Jewish culture and history – from the earliest origins of the Jewish people in Europe, through the Holocaust and to the present day. The museum is housed in a huge metal structure designed by architect Daniel Libeskind, which opened in 2001. The unique architectural design created an open area enclosed by the internal walls of the museum, called 'the memory void', for those affected by the Holocaust. The story of this period is reflected in several special areas within the building, although the museum is not exclusively about Holocaust, and there are many interactive exhibits.
 

 

10. Museum Island

A unique ensemble of museum buildings, including the National Gallery, the Old Museum (Altes Museum), the Pergamon Museum and the Bode Museum. The National Gallery specialises in works from the 19th and 20th centuries as well as international contemporary art, and is also famous for its collection of French impressionist art. The Old Museum houses a collection of 18th, 19th and early 20th century paintings and statues, whereas the massive Pergamon Museum is divided into five sections: the Antiquities Collection, the Middle East Museum, the Islamic Museum, the Far East Collection, and the Museum of Popular Art – and would take several days to view properly in its entirety! Finally, the Bode Museum has outstanding exhibits of Byzantine and early Christian relics on show.
