Brandenburg Gate

A must-see in Berlin is the Brandenburg Gate, the national symbol of unity and peace. Since it was commissioned by King Frederick William the II of Prussia in the 18th century, this sandstone monument has played a significant part in German history. During your visit, you’ll discover how Napoleon stole one of its statues during the French Occupation, how the structure became part of the Nazi propaganda, and how it became the face of the Berlin Wall.

Reichstag Building

Originally built to house the “Imperial Diet'' party, the Reichstag Building’s massive fire accident triggered Adolf Hitler’s assumption of dictatorial power. After being bombed during World War II, it has since been used as a museum of German history. It wasn’t until after the reunification of East and West Berlin that it was restored and renovated completely, with British architect Sir Norman Foster rebuilding its most notable feature - the glass dome that provides excellent views of the city.

East Side Gallery

Considered as the longest and biggest open-air gallery in the world, East Side Gallery stands between the Ostbahnhof and Oberbaumbrücke. Over 118 artists from 21 countries added more than one hundred paintings, graffiti, and street art on the 1.3-kilometer section of the former Berlin Wall. Make sure to check out the painting of Dmitri Vrubel depicting Erich Honecker and Leonid Brezhnev’s iconic “kiss”, one of the many murals that are worth visiting!

Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe (Holocaust Memorial) is one of the more unusual things to do in Berlin that will give you an introspection of the six million Jewish victims of the Nazi genocide. One can be lost in the maze of a thousand concrete slabs that look like coffin pillars stretching over the former “death strip” near the Brandenburg Gate in Mitte. Getting an experienced guide would be helpful in terms of exploring the place and understanding the significant part of Jewish history during World War II.
