Berlin sights

Berlin is the capital of Germany. With more than 3.5 million inhabitants, it is also the most populous city in Germany. In addition, Berlin is one of the most historic cities in the world. After World War II separated by a wall and divided into East Berlin (GDR) and West Berlin (FRG), Berlin was reunited only by the disintegration of the GDR.

Sights in Berlin

Brandenburg Gate

So Berlin is definitely worth a visit. The most famous building and the landmark of Berlin is the Brandenburg Gate and an absolute must-do on your Berlin trip. Commissioned by King Frederick William II, it was located after World War 2 in the exclusion zone between East and West. Nowadays you can walk through the gate again.

Berlin TV Tower

Almost as well known is the Berlin TV Tower, which you can see from afar. With 368m height it is the highest building in Germany and is located at Alexanderplatz. In the sphere at around 200m height is a revolving restaurant. So you can stay seated and the whole restaurant rotates slowly. This way you get a 360 ° experience from your seat. But there is also a viewing platform, so you don’t necessarily have to go into the restaurant. Whether by day or by night, Berlin from above is always impressive.

The Reichstag with its glass dome is also one of the most beautiful and impressive buildings in Berlin. This is where the German Bundestag meets and debates. The building can also be visited and you can wind your way up in the glass dome. If you want to visit the Reichstag, a reservation is mandatory. Spontaneously you can only see it from the outside.
