Places of interest in Berlin

Kurfürstendamm & Breitscheidplatz

Kurfürstendamm is one of the most important shopping streets in Berlin. This is particularly true of the section between the Memorial Church and the junction with Joachimsthaler Straße.

The rest of Kurfürstendamm, which Berliners and most visitors refer to as Ku'damm for short, is characterized by cafés, cinemas and theaters. The Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church on Breitscheidplatz consists of an ensemble of an old and a new church. The ruins of the old memorial church serve as a memorial against the war, while the congregation holds its services in the new church. The 20,000 stained glass windows, whose design makes the light in the interior appear blue, are striking.

The Reichstag as the seat of the Bundestag

Reichstag is the common abbreviation for the Reichstag building, in which the German Bundestag has met since 1994. It was built between 1884 and 1894. The dome, which is now one of Berlin's landmarks, was only erected during the reconstruction following German reunification.

For security reasons, visitors to the Reichstag building must book in advance. Registration is also required to climb the dome, but this can be done two hours before the desired viewing time if there are free places.

Berlin Wall Memorial

The central memorial site in the center of Berlin is a reminder of the once divided Germany. Along a 1,400 meter long section of the former Wall, exhibits and exhibitions give an impression of the years when the Wall was built, and the site of the memorial, Bernauer Strasse, played a particularly important role in the division of the city. The centerpiece of the site is the last remaining section of the Berlin Wall. The foundations of a former residential building, which formed the border until 1980, bring recent German history to life. Walk in the footsteps of the "Ossis" and "Wessis" starting from the HYPERION Hotel Berlin.
