Attractions and Places to Visit in Berlin
Whether you are interested in history, art or culture, Berlin has many top sights for visitors to enjoy. Berlin is more than 775 years old and over the decades, all generations have left their monuments and landmarks in town. The densest array of sights in Berlin lies east of the Brandenburg Gate, on either side of Unter den Linden. In the city west visitors should take a look at the broken shard of the Kaiser Wilhelm Gedächtniskirche, which serves as a brutal reminder of World War II. Close by starts the famous boulevard Kurfürstendamm.
The museum at Checkpoint Charlie, part of the former Berlin Wall, is a must-see as is the moving Holocaust Memorial located close to the Brandenburg Gate. Not much is left of the Wall itself, but there are some sections still standing, which are hugely popular with visitors. Culture vultures will want to visit Museum Island, home to the Berlin State Museums which house works of art from around the world. After a long day sightseeing, head for Tiergarten park to enjoy a refreshing drink at one of its many beer gardens.
