Top 5 historical landmarks of Berlin, Germany

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.

Stasi Museum and Prison & The Berlin-Hohenschönhausen Memorial

Stasi Museum and Prison & The Berlin-Hohenschönhausen Memorial

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.

Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

Completed in 2004, the holocaust memorial is considered to be one of the most harrowing of our time, representing a system of lost touch with humanity.

Brandenburg Gate

Brandenburg Gate

It was damaged during WWII, then hidden away between the East and West sides of the Berlin Wall. Restored and public, Germany’s most famous landmark is pure Prussian stateliness.

The Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church

The Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church

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.

The Berlin Wall and Checkpoint Charlie

The Berlin Wall and Checkpoint Charlie

Small lengths of graffiti-covered giants remain of The Wall, that which divided Europe with its internal “death strip” from 1961 to 1989.

Excellent! Interesting and very entaining

Of course you have to like history, and want to feel as if you were back in that time .. then you will love it. There was a couple of uninterested tourists in the group, I don't even understand WHY you would go on a 4 h tour if you're not interested in the topic, and just don't listen. Anyway we had a lot of fun and got to understand a lot. The guide was super responsive and knew answers to the weirdest questions we asked. Definitely he knew what he was talking about!

Liz was a fantastic guide! All the sights and descriptions were great.

Wonderful overview of a lot of historical details and depth about why the Berlin Wall happened and the impact that it had on the city and people who lived in the city during that time. Our guide (Liz) was very well organized and knowledgeable taking questions as well as giving us very nice descriptions of the many places we visited. Overall it was a wonderful experience and i can highly recommend it to anyone who is considering.

Red Berlin - Best walking tour I have ever done !!

So glad I did this tour. Although I have read extensively on the subject, I still learnt a lot during the tour. Sophie is a true subject matter expert on anything related to the wall and she did an amazing job of keeping the energy level high throughout the 3.5 hour tour. Simply superb!

Excellent and enthusiastic guide made this very worth while.

I had miscalculated and as an old and overweight man this 'Walking tour' Was real tough for me. So when I say that this was a fascinating and engaging tour this is because the guide, the subject matter and the setting were all excellent. I strongly recomend.
