Places to see in Berlin

The TFC2015 is definitely the most important event in Berlin in the time from 26th to 29th October.
But there are plenty more things you can do in Germany´s capital city.
In the following I will show you some places you have to visit at least one time in your life when you’re in Berlin!

Checkpoint Charlie
The best-known Berlin Wall crossing point between East Berlin and West Berlin, from 1961 to 1990.

East Side Gallery
An international memorial for freedom. It’s a 1300m long section of the Berlin Wall located near the centre of Berlin in Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg. The river Spree was the actual border at this point – the East Side Gallery is located on the so-called „hinterland-mauer“ which closed the border between East and West Berlin.

Hackesche Höfe
A notable courtyard complex situated adjacent to the Hackescher Markt in the centre of Berlin. The complex consists of eight interconnected courtyards, accessed through a main arched entrance at number 40 Rosenthaler Straße.

The northern half of an island in the river Spree in the central of Berlin. It is so called for the complex of five internationally significant museums: The Altes Museum (Old Museum), the Neues Museum (New Museum), the Alte Nationalgalerie (Old National Gallery), the Bode Museum and the Pergamon Museum. In 1999, the museum complex was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.

Holocaust Mahnmal
The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, also known as the Holocaust Memorial (German: Holocaust-Mahnmal), is a memorial to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust, designed by architect Peter Eisenman.
