Berlin, Germany Highlights

story by: Inspire Central & Eastern Europe, & Scandinavia

There is so much to see and do in Germany and the capital city of Berlin that you could become overwhelmed with choice. To help narrow down your options if you only have a limited time available, at House of Travel we have put together some of our favourite attractions or visitor spots so you don't miss out on anything. 

  • BRANDENBURG GATE (BRANDENBURGER TOR) – Located on Pariser Platz it’s the last remaining gate from medieval times in the city. Today it is one of Berlin’s most important landmarks and a symbol of the city.
  • REICHSTAG – It’s the seat of the German government, housed the first German Parliament and remained in use until 1933. It was were in 1918 that the German Republic was announced and since then it has been host to many key political historical events. It pays to get there early or the queue can be quite long, but entry is free and it’s worth a wait.
  • TIERGARTEN PARK – The world’s largest inner-city park. It stretches from Brandenburg Gate in the east to Zoo Station in the west. You’ll definitely want to search out Germany’s oldest zoo, The Zoologischer Garten. With 19,000 species, the zoo houses the most diverse variety of animals in the world.
  • BERLIN WALL – Not much is left of the Wall at its original site as it was destroyed almost everywhere. You can find a 80 metre piece of the wall at the Topography of Terror, site of the former Gestapo headquarters, half way between Checkpoint Charlie and Potsdamer Platz. A longer section of the wall can be found along the Spree River near the Oberbaumbrücke, nicknamed East Side Gallery. This stretch of the wall, with 106 graffiti paintings by artists from all over the world, is a memorial for freedom, making it the largest open air gallery in the world.
  • POTSDAMER PLATZ – The central hub of Berlin. Here you’ll find a plethora of shops, cinemas and restaurants; it’s definitely one of the liveliest squares in the country.
  • Guided walking tours – You learn so much more about the city and its history – some spots you would walk straight past and have no idea how significant they were otherwise.
