What to do in Berlin
Brandenburg Gate: This majestic arch is one of Berlin's most famous landmarks. The gate was a symbol of division during the Cold War but now represents German reunification. Learn more about its history at the Brandenburg Gate Museum.
Berlin Television Tower: Towering above the city at 368 metres high, you can see this iconic obelisk from just about everywhere Berlin. Visit the observation deck at the top for a phenomenal panoramic view.
Museum Island: Museum Island is a treasure trove of history and art, spanning 6,000 years, and five separate museums, all occupying a small island in downtown Berlin. See Greek and Roman antiquities at the Altes Museum, Egyptian artefacts at the Neues Museum, 19th Century Romanticism at the Alte Nationalgalerie, ancient architecture at the Pergamonmuseum, and finally, medieval sculptures at the Bode-Museum.
Berlin Wall: Start at the Berlin Wall Memorial site to learn about the history of the wall, and how it impacted the life of Berliners, before walking along the 1.3 kilometre East Side Gallery. Once an object of division, it has now become the word's longest open-air gallery, there are over 100 murals to see, including the infamous 'Fraternal Kiss'.
Memorial To The Murdered Jews Of Europe: This football-field-sized memorial consists of 2,711 concrete columns of different heights. The vast memorial is an austere place of reflection and contemplation that shouldn't be missed.
