Monument / Point de repère
“Berlin's Holocaust Memorial, located in Mitte on a stretch of the former "death strip" where the Wall once stood near Brandenburg Gate, is Berlin's stunning monument to the Holocaust, dedicated to the Jewish victims of the Nazi genocide of World War II. Impressive in its awesome grey soberness, rather than sombreness, it includes an underground Ort der Information (Information Centre) located on the south-eastern side of the memorial grounds, accessible via two flights of stairs or a lift. ”

“A lot of what the world knows about Germany revolves around the II World War, but Germany and the germanic lands that it comprised during its many phases in History have a lot more to teach us. Visit the entrance hall, enjoy the stairs and discover surprising views. The modern extension of the museum is by IM Pei.”

“A point of interest for anyone who wants to learn a little about Checkpoint Charlie. It is quite commercial but still a place to pass by when visiting Berlin for the first time, as not much from the wall of the checkpoint are left in the area. Further down you will see a checkpoint with some people dressed up as DDR and American soldiers, with whom you can take a picture for a fee. There is also a sign saying you are leaving/entering the Soviet/American sectors, which is always cute for those touristy photos everyone takes. Open every day from 9:00 to 22:00.”

History Museum
“This is Berlin's Egyptian museum, as well a museum of both prehistory and early history. Displayed are not only artifacts but also testimonies of travelers and expeditions that allowed for the rediscovery of Ancient Egypt and lead to the phenomenon of 18th-century egyptomania that swept Europe. Most of the rooms are decorated in the style of Ancient Egyptian palaces and tombs, or with romantized scenes from its history painted in absolutely amazing frescos. Largely destroyed during the second world war, this 19th-century building has reopened not so many years ago, after a beautiful and intricate restoration process lead by David Chipperfield. Open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays between 10:00 and 18:00. On Thursdays it is open from 10:00 to 20:00.”

“The New Synagogue (Neue Synagoge), along with the Jewish Museum and the Holocaust memorial is one of Berlin's most significant Jewish landmarks. Built in 1866, to seat 3200 people as the largest Jewish place of worship in Germany, the Neue Synagogue was literally a symbol of the thriving Jewish community. With 160,000 Jewish citizens in 1933, Berlin was the centre of Liberal Judaism. ”
