Points of Interest & Landmarks
Simply the City's as well as the Berlin republic's landmark. On your tour from the Bundestag via Pariser Platz strolling down Unter den Linden you are actually passing it anyway. Walk through from West to East and take a look to your right: there it is: the Embassy of the US. If looking to your left: French Embassy.
The roof terrace and dome of the Reichstag Building can be visited by members of the public, and offer spectacular views of the parliamentary and government district and Berlin’s sights. You actually WANT to go inside. Tickets have to be booked in advance and online via: https://visite.bundestag.de/BAPWeb/pages/createBookingRequest.jsf?lang=en
Just imagine: only 20 years ago this whole area has been an open place, nothing but sand and bushes.
This used to be the hunting grounds of some Prussian kings. Even then they didn't like to travel much too far for their hobbies.... Especially during weekends you'll hang out with thousands of Berliners, grilling, playing soccer, Volleyball or Badminton, drinking beer and having a good time in the sunshine.
Said to be one of the most interesting philharmonic theatres with the best sound in the world. Concerts literally almost every evening. Tickets are pretty hard to get.
A gem a bit outside city center, but nevertheless more than worth it. You'll take the metro (U-Bahn) to Rathaus Steglitz and hopp into a bus going West. Enjoy the tropical garden houses. The easiness. The calm.
Museum for modern art, just a few footsteps from Potsdamer Platz. The building and its sculpture gardens were designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and opened in 1968.
Welcome to fancy, artsy Kreuzberg. Over the years this part of Berlin has been taken over and transformed by generation of designer and software developer guys. One bar and restaurant next to the other. But still with lots of flair and charm.
