      About This Berlin Tour

      Berlin boasts many scenic areas, such as Boulevard "Unter den Linden". Towering trees line the long street, which leads to iconic city symbol, Bradenburg Gate. This structure survived the war, whereas many other buildings on Paris Square were reduced to rubble. A square with the Reichstag building in its North vicinity and embassies in the Southeast and East, Pariser Platz is steeped in history, just like Gendarmenmarkt Square.

      Flaunting ancient architecture and a magnificent statue of Friedrich Schiller, Gendarmenmarkt Square was damaged during the war, as was Bebelplatz. Named after August Bebel, this public square was the chosen destination for Nazi book burning ceremonies.

      Buildings from a bygone era can also be found on Museum Island, not to mention rare artifacts, such as the Bust of Nefertiti! This limestone sculpture is housed inside Pergamom Museum, which is within walking distance of Neue Museum, Bode Museum, Alte Nationalgalerie and Altes Museum.

      Your time spent at Neue Wache, better known as the New Guard House, will tug at the heartstrings. Since 1931 it has been a memorial to the victims of war and dictatorship. Constructed under the orders of King Frederick William III of Prussia, the building was originally a guardhouse for troops. 

      Berlin’s waterways

      It’s not just tax-free shopping one can enjoy when visiting Berlin but also, a voyage on the water. The capital is somewhat similar to Venice, because thousands of bridges dominate the landscape, which is made up of 180 kilometers of waterways. Approximately one third of the land area comprises forests, lakes and parks, while the rest is UNESCO World Heritage Sites, active opera houses and modern buildings.
