Berlin
closeEver since the creation of a unified Germany in 1871, the nation's tumultuous history has had a profound impact on the history of its capital Berlin.
Many historic neighborhoods and monuments were destroyed during the Second World War, but since the reunification after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, historic areas like Potsdamer Platz and Pariser Platz have been completely revamped. Nowadays, Berlin is once again one of Europe's greatest cities: lively, dynamic and inviting.
Random Berlin Highlights
Potsdamer Platz, Berlin
Once the busiest crossing in Europe, the Potsdamer Platz was completely destroyed after the war. In 1998 the new Potsdamer Platz, full of modern buildings, officially opened.
Hackesche Höfe, Berlin
Once ubiquitous in Berlin, courtyards such as the Hackesche Höfe are now a rarity. The elaborate jugendstil decorations make this series of courtyards a popular attraction.
Checkpoint Charlie, Berlin
One of three checkpoints at the Berlin Wall, Checkpoint Charlie was the site of a standoff between American and Russian tanks in 1961. It became one of the most famous symbols of the Cold War Era.
Kaiser Wilhelm Gedächtniskirche, Berlin
The Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche, a partially destroyed nineteenth-century church, is a constant reminder of the ravages of war. In the 1960s a modern church was built next to the damaged church tower.
