As one of Europe’s major cultural cities, Berlin presents many museums, historical websites and other places for a memorable trip. Many landmarks remind us of the long history of Berlin, the remains of this destruction during World War II and it has a history when it was divided between east and west. Though Berlin is a massive metropolis orientating yourself in Berlin isn’t hard in any way. There are three prominent landmarks: the Church of Remembrance (the Gedächtniskirche), located in the West on the Kurfürstendamm, the Brandenburger Tor in the city district of Mitte, along with with the Fernsehturm (TV- tower) at Alexanderplatz in the East. Round and about these three points of interest lie the interior workings of Berlin.
Now it is a sign of a united city. And as among the highest buildings in Europe, it delivers a marvellous view of the city equally during the night and day. It is possible to stop by the observation platform situated at a height of 203 meters or dine at the restaurant while enjoying the view.
The Brandenburg Gate, Berlin’s only remaining city gate, is the very known town’s landmark along with the symbol of the division and reunion of this city.
In 1891-95, in a new-Romanesque style, the original Gedächtniskirche was built to honour the memory of Kaiser Wilhelm I and represented a symbol of the Age of the German Empire. Throughout the Second World War, the church was heavily damaged but not completely destroyed. The rest of the ruins reminded the local population concerning the bombings of the war and were transformed into a little museum and into a memorial. In 1961-63, next to the church, the high six-sided bell tower and the flat eight-sided principal building were built. The older tower ruins serve today for a church memorial and a remembrance hallway for peace and reconciliation.
The Reichstag is a very important site in German history – its colorful past reflects the turbulence of German history since the 19th century. The Reichstag was constructed from 1884-94 from Paul Wallot, as a representative building was required to house the parliament of the newly-founded German country. On 9 November 1918, the politician Philipp Scheidemann announced the institution of the Republic from one of its windows. After the war, the devastated building was rebuilt in a simplified form by 1961-1971, but it was not used for parliamentary functions. Following reunification, the German Federal Government decided to use the building for a parliament once more. From 1994-1999 the Reichstag was reconstructed and extended from the Architect Sir Norman Forster Since 1999 that the Reichstag is home to the Bundestag (the lower Parliament).
