BERLIN – A CITY DIVIDED
One of the best ways to experience Berlin is to simply walk around the city. It is full of surprises and quirky things that you will miss if you sit in a car.
It is not possible to walk around all of Berlin – the city is simply too big for that. You can quickly get from one part of the city to another with the efficient metro. It easy to use and lets you experience more of Berlin in a short period of time.
The area around Alexander Platz oozes of the former East Berlin. Take a trip up the 368 m. high Fernsehturm and enjoy the view of Berlin in the rotating café.
If you want to feel how it was before the fall of the Berlin Wall, you have to visit Checkpoint Charlie. It is perhaps the best known border crossing between East and West Berlin during the time the city was divided.
Today at the earlier Checkpoint Charlie in Friedrichstrasse, you can also find a museum about Berlin’s time as a city divided.
A CITY WITH PERSONALITY
After the old East Berlin has been renovated and rebuild after the war, you can now find many neighbourhoods with their own unique personality.
Prenzlauer Berg is the cosy and green artistic neighbourhood where almost all roads are boulevards and the buildings are painted in beautiful colours. Kastanieallee and Schönhauser Allee connects it all.
Mitte is a hip neighbourhood with sushi bars and fashion stores. You will also find the beautiful Neue synagogue at Oranienburger Strasse in this part of the city.
The neighbourhood Kreuzberg is placed in the old West Berlin and it bubbles with life. Here you can find many restaurants and bars. Then there is Friedrichshain, that, in its own way, takes you back to the former DDR.
Berlin has been called “poor, but sexy” and it is a genuine metropolis.
If you are into opera, you can enjoy some of the biggest masterpieces at Deutsche Oper or Staatsoper. Berlin also has one of the best club scenes in the world if you like electronic music.
The city and music are synonyms. Artists like Lou Reed and David Bowie has had many associations with Berlin.
The status as a cultural big city is seen clearly with big events like the Love Parade and the Berlin Marathon.
HISTORY OF BERLIN
Berlin is an old city that was founded in the 13th century. It was the capital of old Prussia and quickly became known for its important role in science, music and higher education.
It has been an important city throughout history as the capital city of many big empires. After WW2 the city suffered the misfortune of being divided into two – East and West Berlin.
THE BERLIN WALL IN BERLIN
Berlin was actually divided from 1945 all the way up to 1990. It was divided into four sectors – the American, British, French and Soviet sector. The Soviet sector is what we today call East Berlin and the other three sector made up West Berlin.
The erection of the Berlin Wall first began in 1961. On August 13 East Berlin started building the wall overnight without warning. The first stone was laid at Potsdamer Platz.
During the separation the two parts of Berlin evolved quite differently. This is one of the reasons why so many people wanted to cross the border from East to West Berlin.
Because West Berlin in reality was a small western island in the Soviet Union, you could not transport supplies by roads. This had to be airlifted in by plane – the allied airlift of supplies began in 1948.
John F. Kennedy said the famous words “Ich bin ein Berliner” - I am a Berliner – during this period.
AFTER THE FALL OF THE BERLIN WALL
The wall came down on November 9th, 1989 but it was not until October 3rd, 1990 that the city was officially reunited.
After the Fall of the Berlin Wall, the healing of Berlin could begin. The reunion of the two very different parts of Berlin was not easy but it made the city into the artistic playground and thriving metropolis it is today.
Brandenburger Tor still stands as a reminder of the wall as it passed close by the sight. You can still see parts of the Berlin Wall today, when you visit the city.

SIGHTS AND ATTRACTIONS IN BERLIN
Berlin is a city with a rich historical background. This is clear when you visit the city. There are many things to see and do during your visit.
Some of the sights can be combined to really give you an understanding of the unique Berlin spirit.
Brandenburger Tor is one of Berlin’s most famous landmarks. It is a must-see sight during your visit to the German capital.
The gate was erected between 1788 and 1791 and served as one of the gates to the city. It is one of three preserved city gates.
It was a symbol of the city and the division of Berlin and Germany during the Cold War. Now it stands as a national symbol of unity and peace.
You can find other important monuments and sights in close vicinity to Brandenburger Tor.
THE BERLIN WALL AND CHECKPOINT CHARLIE
The Berlin Wall is such a big and important part of Berlin and German history, that it is almost mandatory to see the remaining parts of the wall, when you visit the city.
There are a number of places, where you can see remnants of the once so big and divisive wall. The best way to really understand the impact of the Berlin Wall is at the Berlin Wall Memorial.
People visit Checkpoint Charlie either before or after they have seen the wall. The famous border crossing on the Berlin Wall is a museum today and it also has pieces of the Berlin Wall in its exhibitions.
THE REICHSTAG BUILDING
The German Federal Government resides in Berlin in the Reichstag building. It was opened in 1894. The building was damaged during WW2 and it was not reconstructed until 1999.
It was actually at the Reichstag the official reunification ceremony was held in 1990. The day after the ceremony the parliament of the united Germany assembled in the building as an act of symbolism.
Today the Reichstag is the second most visited attraction in Germany. This is not least because of the big and impressive glass dome from which you get an outstanding view over the city. The view is especially impressive at night.
