Unlike the first three posts that covers on the shopping areas, this post will be showing you a few famous monuments in Berlin. So let’s start!
The iconic monument in Berlin will be the Brandenburg Tor. It is located in the western part of the city centre of Berlin at the junction of Unter den Linden. Passing through the gate, you will enter a garden which is well-known for its rows of linden trees. The Tor or gate has a significant to the cold war that divided Germany and separated it from the rest of Europe, as shown below:
On the road you will able to spot a line of bricks that traced the original Berlin Wall.
As you walk down the Brandenburg Tor, you will get to see the soviet soldiers memorial monument to commemorate the 80,000 soldiers who were sacrificed during the battle of Berlin in April 1945.
You walk further down you will get to the famous Germany’s parliament house also known as Reichnstag in german. It is famous for the reconstruction work done by Norman Foster after it had been badly damaged during the world war, especially on the glass dome that sits right on top of the building.
The parliament dome is opened for visitors and is free of charge. However, I would advice you to do a pre-booking through here 3 days prior to your visit. Oh ya, do remember to bring your passport along for personal identification purposes.
That’s all folks! Many thanks all for those who follow through my Berlin Series. 🙂
