What you shouldn’t miss in Berlin:
The Kurfürstendamm is a main street in the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf district and is considered to be a true magnet for visitors because of its concertation of multitude and variety of commercial and dining venues. Anyone who is looking for well-known brands like Armani, Prada, Chanel, Dior or Versace, will find them here. It will be easy to find some nice souvenirs to take away with so many stores of prestigious brands.
Unter den Linden
Unter den Linden is the central avenue of Berlin. Who strolls along it will find treasures of history and architecture such as the Pariser Platz, the Brandenburg Gate, the new Academy of Arts, the famous Adlon hotel, the Alexanderplatz or the TV tower.
Be like Johan von Goethe or Heinrich Heine and be inspired by this atmosphere!
The Brandenburg Gate
The Brandenburg Gate is, along with the Parliament building and the television tower, Berlin’s best-known monument. Its construction was commissioned by the Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm II between 1789 and 1793 as an arch of triumph in the early neoclassical style.
The only gate of the city that is preserved with its famous sculpture of the four-horse team, has witnessed many decisive events of the history in the 19th and 20th centuries: Until the fall of the Iron Curtain it stood at the border between East and West Berlin. Today it is generally understood and celebrated as a symbol of the reunification of Germany.
Alexanderplatz is located on the northwest bank of Berlin’s old town and is named after the Russian Czar Alexander I. Although it was redesigned in the early busy years fo the thirties, much of the adjoining buildings were destroyed during the allied bombardment in of World War II. In the sixties it was converted into a pedestrian zone and considerably increased in size: Since then, the “Alex”, as it is affectionately called by Berliners, has been one of the liveliest squares in Europe. The best thing you can do here is to take time to contemplate the commercial activity of this square.
The Humboldt University of Berlin was founded in 1809, named after the German naturalist Alexander zu Humboldt and today it is the oldest of the four universities in Berlin. This prestigious elite university is especially proud of the 29 Nobel prizes it has received so far. No less impressive is the representative position of its central building in the old palace of Prince Heinrich on the boulevard of Unter den Linden.
The Pergamon Museum
Crossing Berlin without continually encountering cultural legacy is impossible. The Pergamon museum in the Berlin island of museums, is in any case an ostentatious collection of antique, Islamic and Oriental art. Its size is demonstrated thanks to visitor records: in 2007, 1.13 million visitors were registered. Although part of the museum is not currently open to the public due to renovation work, the museum is still worth a visit.
