What to See When In Berlin
Get to know some of the major tourist attractions in the city while you visit the Forum. We’ve put together this list of the top 3 attractions to see while you’re in Berlin:
- Brandenburg Gate– This popular 18th-century tourist attraction gives visitors a look into the history of neoclassical architecture. The Brandenburg Gate is a historic monument originally designed as a representation of peace and tolerance, and has inspired movements of freedom and unity for the city of Berlin.
- Charlottenburg Palace and Park – The largest palace in Berlin, this 17th century building now serves as a major tourist attraction. For a small admission charge, visitors can wander throughout the numerous halls and wings of the palace viewing baroque decorations, statues, and historical porcelain treasures.
- Berlin Wall – The legacy of the Berlin wall needs little introduction. Tourists from across the world come to Berlin to see this symbol of the Cold War, which divided the East and West parts of the city until hundreds of thousands took to the streets and demanded its demise. Now, the wall serves as a memento of perilous times and a canvas for graffiti artists from all walks of life.
For the easiest way to sightsee across the city, take advantage of the Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour program.
