Venues

  • Museum Island - Berlin’s Museum Island owes its name to the fact that the precious collections of five museums really are located on an island – in the arms of the River Spree, which meanders through the city centre. The imposing buildings from the 19th and 20th centuries adorn the island to form one of the most important museums sites in Europe.

  • Berlin Wall - The Berlin Wall was not only a symbol of the division of a city and a country, but the entire world. Europe, still scarred by the appalling tragedy of the Second World War, became the scene of a new, terrible conflict which, though it wasn’t fought with weapons, caused deep lacerations.

  • Checkpoint Charlie Berlin - Checkpoint Charlie was one of the most famous border crossings in the Berlin Wall and connected the Soviet and American sectors. The checkpoint on Friedrichstrasse was set up by the Western Allies in 1961 as a result of the construction of the Wall, so that members of the Allies could continue to cross the border and enter East Berlin.

  • Reichstag - The Reichstag building on Platz der Republik in Berlin has been the seat of the Federal Republic of Germany (Bundestag) since 1999. With its iconic dome and roof terrace, it is a popular destination for tourists from all over the world to learn about German history and politics, as well as to get a panoramic view of Berlin's sights.

  • Brandenburg Gate - The Brandenburg Gate is the most famous landmark of Berlin and a must-see for every visitor to the German capital. It is the only preserved city gate in Berlin and is located on the impressive Pariser Platz in the middle of Berlin. Constructed between 1788 and 1791, this large sandstone gate is the conclusion of the magnificent "Unter den Linden" boulevard.
