The great Brandenburg Gate with the beautiful Quadriga at the top carrying the victory goddess is one of the most well-known landmarks in Berlin, so it is a must-see! Previously, this gate symbolized the divided Germany and today it is a symbol of unity. The Brandenburg Gate was built to commemorate the victory over Napoleon.
The largest palace in Berlin, it is another must-see. Friedrich II ordered its construction in 1695 for his wife Sophie Charlotte. There is a very good art gallery in the palace. Its green-walled ballroom seems to be inspired by nature. A walk through the gardens leaves a very nice impression during the summer. Best of all is to discover this palace with the assistance of audio guides that can provide more information.
Alexanderplatz Square is a symbol of East Berlin. It was named after the Russian Tsar Alexander I. Today it is surrounded by cozy cafes and tourist boutiques. Berliners call this square “Alex”. The TV tower, Berliner Fernsehturm, which is seen as Berlin’s special landmark, stands in the middle of the square.
This historical landmark 3.5 km long, called “Europe’s largest café”, the world bohemian center of the “golden twenties”, rose up from ashes after the WWII bombings and became a global center of fashion, shopping and gastronomic delights. Parisian Champs Elysees served as a prototype for this boulevard while Berliner shortened its name to “Ku’damm”.
Berlin is a cosmopolitan city, a place where new trends, styles and subcultures emerge.
