Museum Island
Berlin Palace Humboldt Forum

Berlin Palace Humboldt Forum

The Berlin Palace on the Museum Island in the Mitte area of Berlin, was the main royal residence from 1443 to 1918. It was badly damaged during the Allied bombing in World War II, and was demolished by the East German authorities in 1950 to build the modernist East German Palace of the Republic. After German reunification and several years of debate, the Palace of the Republic was itself demolished and the Berlin Palace was constructed anew to house the Humboldt Forum museum. Today, the Humboldt Forum museum houses a rich collection of Asian art and craft objects dating from the 5th millennium BC through to the present day. Explore East Asian paintings and prints, lacquer objects and ceramics, the art and culture of the Silk Road, South Asian and South-East Asian art, Hindu and Buddhist sculptures and much more.

Reichstag

Reichstag

The Reichstag the glass-domed building that houses the Bundestag — the lower house of Germany's parliament. Redesigned and expanded by British architect Sir Norman Foster in the 90s, the Parliament building retains its extensive, historical dimensions, yet looks ultra-modern and airy. From the accessible glass cupola you get a fabulous view of the city and German politics. Although visiting the cupola and roof terrace is free, it is essential to book in advance — the Reichstag is immensely popular. To learn more about German political system and the daily life of the Parliament, you can book a 90-minute guided tour. Guided tours of the Reichstag Building are held in weeks when Parliament is not sitting.

Wall Museum — Checkpoint Charlie

Wall Museum — Checkpoint Charlie

Checkpoint Charlie, the most famous of the inner-German border crossing points and a name known the world over, was where Allied border guards registered members of the American, English and French Armed Forces (and their families) before they visited East Berlin. The "Wall Museum - Museum House at Checkpoint Charlie” is right next to this major tourist spot. The museum displays an incredible number of original means and tools that people used in their escape out of the GDR: from the hot-air balloon to a mini-submarine, plus plenty of real and fake travel documents.

Potsdamer Platz
Nikolai Quarter

Nikolai Quarter

The Nikolai Quarter is a peculiar reconstruction of the way Berlin used to be before its destruction in Wold War II. The area was restored in the 1980s in preparation to Berlin's big 750th birthday. Stroll around the idiosyncratic mixture of reconstructed historic houses and concrete slab Plattenbau blocks, and discover some of the most famous traditional German restaurants and bars. The Nikolaikirche (St. Nicholas’s Church), with its striking double spire, is the heart of the quarter. The Ephraimpalais, with its curved Rococo façade, is a masterpiece of 18th century Berlin palace architecture. Don't miss the Baroque architecture of the Knoblauchhaus, built in 1760.
