I love Berlin. After a few trip to this beautiful city, I would like to make a list for the most prominent sights of the city for you.
Reichstag is the first parliament building of the German Empire. The building is located on the Platz der Republik near the Unter den Linden S-Bahn. The entrance to the building is free but there may be long queues that I need to warn you about.
The Brandenburg Gate:
The Brandenburg Gate may be the most famous landmark in Berlin. The gate stands as a symbol of the reunification of the two sides of the city. It has recently been restored.
The Berlin Wall was separating East and West Germany until its fall. Today, it is a reminder of the city’s past and a testament to its bright future. A large section of Berlin Wall has been preserved for public showing along the River Spree.
Memorial for the Murdered Jews of Europe:
By walking a short distance from the Brandenburg Gate, you can reach the memorial. It stands fort he people who died during the Holocaust. There is also a museum that tells more about the history and the events in detail.
The Jewish Museum Berlin:
The Jewish Museum Berlin was one of the first buildings that was designed after German reunification. It was opened to public in 2001. The museum documents about 2000 years of history. The Jewish Museum is situated in Lindenstrasse near the Hallesches Tor U-Bahn.
The Oberbaumbrucke is a bridge crossing the River Spree. The bridge is an important symbol fort he unity of Berlin. The Oberbaumbrucke got its name from the tree trunks that were originally used to close the river off to traffic each night and prevent passage and smuggling. Nowadays, on Oberbaumbrucke Bridge traffics speeds over the lower section and the U-Bahn line to Warschauer Strasse zooms across the upper level.
St. Nicholas Church:
St. Nicholas Church is one of the oldest churches in the city. The church dates back to 13th century. It got its name from St. Nicholas. He was the patron Saint of merchants. Although the church was destroyed during the World War II, it was restored considering the original design.
Berlin Zoo, which is located in Tiergarten, holds many different kinds of species. The zoo was opened in 1844 and like most of Berlin, it was destroyed during the World War II. There is also an aquarium that you may find interesting. The zoo and the aquarium are both opened all year round so you can visit whenever you want.
