the BEST attractions in Berlin!

Me again! Would appreciate some help with ideas. We are really interested in world war 2 so any thing related would be great. Anywhere with authentic German beers also (for the hubby!)

Having never done a tour in Berlin although I have been there many times, I am planning to do the insider tours Third Reich tour on my next visit. It goes from in front of Zoo station so you would need to take a train from Alexanderplatz to there. The tour finishes back there so after you could go for a well earned beer by a lake in the Tiergarten.

Berliner Republik might also be of interest for some food and beers

WW2 interests – aside from the cemetery there are Russian memorials in Treptower Park, Tiergarten and Schonholzer Heide or Heath.

The Tiergarten would be easiest to visit

There is way more to Berlin than just WW2 stuff.

I agree with the folks who point out there is more than WWII. Of course Berlin is not one of the really ancient cities in Germany either. As to WWII I suggest the memorial to the book burning on Unter den Linden near the Opera. Also the history museum on Unter den Linden. You can take the boat tour on the Wannsee, where the tragic conference was held. In Potsdam is the building where the Conference was held.

Not sure that I would call Sachsenhausen and Topographie des Terrors 'Attractions', especially when listed alongside a Biergarten. A little respect, please.
