History is palpable in Berlin. The tumultuous past of Germany remains in the forefront of its citizens’ minds through monuments, memorials, and the few historic sites that weren’t bombed during WWII. Be sure to visit these five in the capital city.
You’ll have to head east for a deeper look into Soviet East Germany; these are some of the only landmarks that weren’t stormed by citizens after the fall of the Wall.
Berliners call the Gedächtniskirche “The Hollow Tooth” because its spire was never reconstructed after WWII to serve as a reminder of war’s terrible destruction.
Berlin’s public transportation system is fantastic. Buy a week pass or a bundle of four single tickets at a time to save a little spending cash.
The city has one of the best global infrastructures for tourism. Take advantage of it! Check out visitberlin.de or look into purchasing a Berlin WelcomeCard, your flatrate ticket that includes train fare, a city map, guide, and discounts on nearly 200 attractions.

After visiting Berlin for the 6. time, we finally wanted to try a guided tour through the city. To summarize it in 1 sentence: Scottish Sam made it the best trip we ever had. A delightful mix of informations, jokes, tales and stories made this a perfect experience.
Fantastic Tour. Our (Australian!) guide Ernestine was very passionate about German history and super knowledgeable. She really brought the history to life.
All perfect! Good explanations are each site and especially because it was placing you in history to understand the context of the viaita
Excellent experience with fun and highly knowledgeable Sarah Enright. Highly recommend her.
It was good. Lots of interesting cités and a well informed guide. Great value for money.
