25 Best Places to Visit in Berlin in 2023

Are you on the lookout for the best places to visit in Berlin? Then I’ve got you covered! I have put together a list of top landmarks and attractions, including tips for every district in Berlin. You can plan your city trip to Berlin sensibly, so you don’t spend half your time in the subway or in traffic. I’ll tell you which sights of Berlin are close together, how high the entrance fee is and what are the most famous Berlin attractions.

Let’s start with an overview of the most important landmarks in Berlin by district.


The density of sights in Berlin-Mitte is overwhelming. Perfect for experienced city explorers: Brick houses and prefabricated buildings in the Nikolaiviertel, green playground in the Großer Tiergarten, big city atmosphere at Potsdamer Platz or the Wedding district as a total work of art.

  • TV Tower, Alexanderplatz and Hackesche Höfe
  • Brandenburg Gate and Reichstag
  • Friedrichstrasse and Gendarmenmarkt
  • Potsdamer Platz
  • Nikolaiviertel and Rotes Rathaus
  • Large zoo


The clichés about Prenzlauer Berg are correct. But is it really that bad to stroll down broad sidewalks under trees with fair-trade coffee and eat a down-to-earth sandwich for €5.00 for lunch? Family-friendly and a perennial favorite for party people thanks to the Mauerpark.

  • Flea market and karaoke in Mauerpark
  • Kulturbrauerei (various clubs)
  • Kolwitzplatz
  • Zeiss large planetarium
  • Weissensee Jewish Cemetery
  • Weissensee lido
  • Schönhausen Palace with palace garden


Most visitors easily get stuck while walking through Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg. If you are looking for the legendary Berlin nightlife, you will get your money’s worth on the Warschauer Straße, the RAW site and the Schlesisches Tor. In this sense: sticks and see you tomorrow morning.

  • RAW site and Simon-Dach-Kiez
  • Checkpoint Charlie
  • East Side Gallery
  • Oberbaum Bridge
  • Victoria Park with a waterfall
  • Bergmannkiez
  • Volkspark Friedrichshain
  • Jewish Museum
  • Kottbusser Tor


Granted, Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf lives up to its chic reputation when you see the high-priced shops on Ku’damm and the ornate villas in Grunewald. But at the latest when you watch a horde of Hertha fans snacking on their bratwurst, you know that you don’t need tails to explore the district.

  • Zoo Berlin
  • Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church
  • Kurfürstendamm and Tauentzienstrasse
  • Schloss Charlottenburg
  • Olympic Stadium
  • ICC / Messe Berlin
  • Theater of the West


Neukölln is shoulder-breadth to defend its new reputation as a whatever hotspot. The district has everything. Späti culture meets Arabic pastry shops, something artistic, idyllic village square in Rixdorf and pubs in old butcher shops. You have to be the type to see the sights of Neukölln.

  • Old village of Rixdorf with Richardplatz
  • Hasenheide Public Park
  • Britz Castle and Britz Garden
  • Maybachufer and Teltow Canal
  • Weserstrasse nightlife district


The huge open space at the former Tempelhof airport, the Schöneberg town hall, which was the telegenic backdrop for Kennedy’s “I’m a Berliner” or the rainbow neighborhood around Nollendorfplatz: The sights in Tempelhof-Schoeneberg are not too close together, but you have the freedom to do so.

  • KaDeWe
  • Tempelhofer Feld and former Tempelhof Airport
  • Schoeneberg Town Hall
  • Rainbow neighborhood at Nollendorfplatz
  • Trotting track in Mariendorf


The chic district is more alternative than you might think at first glance from the shopping boulevard Schlossstraße or from the shore of Lake Wannsee. The Free University in the heart of Dahlem spreads a refreshing student flair between villa complexes and program cinemas.

  • Botanical Garden
  • Domain of Dahlem
  • Peacock Island and Glienicke Castle
  • Schlossstrasse Berlin
  • Berlin lakes: Wannsee, Schlachtensee and Krumme Lanke


You may still know the lush green Treptower Park with its incredibly beautiful view over the Spree past the Molecule Man to the Oberbaum Bridge, but what is there in Köpenick? Even more water, a cute old town with a pedestrian zone, sailing boats on the Müggelsee and the Union Berlin football club.

  • Treptower Park and Soviet War Memorial
  • Molecule Man
  • Müggelsee and Müggelberge
  • Old town Koepenick
  • Plänterwald and Spree Park


In Tierpark-Friedrichsfelde you will not only find majestic animals, but also Friedrichsfelde Castle. Oops, how sophisticated. Everyone who has become too touristy at Treptower Park can relax in the Rummelsburg Bay. The former Stasi prison Hohenschönhausen shakes up.

  • Friedrichsfelde Zoo with Friedrichsfelde Castle
  • Hohenschönhausen Memorial and Stasi Memorial
  • German-Russian Museum


Altstadt and Zitadelle. Is there anything else to say about Spandau? Many Berliners shrug their shoulders. Having fun with the district in West Berlin is almost de rigueur. When you’ve checked out the top 10 sights in Berlin, jump on a sailing boat on the Havel as a contrast.

  • Citadel Spandau
  • Spandau old town
  • Spandau Forest
  • Great Glienicke Lake


Tegel Airport and the long way to Mitte. In between undefinable terrain. Almost, because the district of Reinickendorf is not only well versed in air, but also in water.

Boat tours start from the Greenwich Promenade, the Buddhist House is one of the largest in Europe and Tegel Castle is simply beautiful.

  • Castle Tegel
  • Borsigturm
  • Greenwich Promenade
  • The Buddhist House


Tourists usually only get lost in the deep east of Berlin if they want to admire the bombastic gardens of the world. Between huge prefab housing estates, however, it is quickly forgotten that above all Kaulsdorf and Biesdorf with its castle spread densely overgrown small-town idyll.

  • Gardens of the World
  • Skywalk Marzahn Promenade
  • Biesdorf Castle

The most popular attractions in Berlin

Brandenburg Gate

What is there to discover? Symbol of the reunification of GDR and FRG with impressive architecture
Admission: free of charge
Nearby attractions: Großer Tiergarten, Unter den Linden Boulevard, Madame Tussauds, Friedrichstrasse, Holocaust Memorial, Potsdamer Platz

Certainly, the grande dame among Berlin’s landmarks needs no introduction.
Even if you are a resident, it is worth visiting the fashionable sight of Berlin from time to time. But very few do.
It is hard to imagine that the Brandenburg Gate, built between 1788 and 1791, was in the death strip between East and West Berlin before reunification.
You can now pass through the 26 m high gate without any problems.

Address: Pariser Platz, 10117 Berlin

In 1806, the Quadriga on the Brandenburg Gate was carried off to France by Napoleon as a sign of his triumph over Prussia.
In 1814 she came back to Berlin and – like before – looks at Pariser Platz.
The back and forth also earned the Quadriga the nickname tit-for-tat.


What is there to discover? Glass dome with a diameter of 38 meters and viewing platform 40 meters high, changing exhibitions, the plenary session of the Bundestag
Admission: Free of charge after prior online registration for guided tours
What’s nearby? Brandenburg Gate, Tiergarten, Federal Chancellery, Berlin Central Station, House of World Cultures

With a total height of 47 meters, the Berlin sight seems strangely massive.
The viewing roof and the glass dome on the Berlin Reichstag can be visited free of charge.
Anyone who would like to experience live how the Federal Government meets can register in advance and can also listen to the Bundestag debate free of charge.
There are still changing exhibitions in the building itself, for example by the artist Christo, who completely covered the Reichstag in 1995.

Address: Platz der Republik 1, 11011 Berlin

Since 1916, the striking lettering “Dem Deutschen Volke” has been emblazoned above the entrance to the Reichstag.
The 60 cm high letters were installed between December 20th and 24th.
The 16 m long lettering consists of melted cannons.

Fernsehturm – TV tower

What is there to discover? Highest building in Germany, best view of Berlin
Admission: Adults from €20.50 (regular), children from €10.50, tickets without waiting times are more expensive
What’s nearby? Alexanderplatz, Hackescher Markt, Rotes Rathaus, Nikolaiviertel

With a total height of 368 meters, the television tower in Berlin-Mitte is the tallest building in Germany and is always seen.
In order to get a seat in the restaurant in the rotating dome, you must make a reservation in advance.

Address: Panoramastrasse 1A, 10178 Berlin

The elevator in the television tower only takes 35 seconds to travel from the ground to the dome of the television tower.
The structure was built between 1965 and 1969.
Incidentally, the dome is not based on a disco ball, but on the Soviet satellite Sputnik.

Berlin Cathedral

What is there to discover? Largest evangelical church in Germany (in terms of area), Hohenzollern crypt
Admission: €9.00 (regular), €9.00 (family ticket) There is an entrance fee to visit the Berlin Cathedral because the church has to finance itself for the most part.
What’s nearby? Museum Island, Lustgarten, Humboldt Forum, Unter den Linden Boulevard, TV Tower

With a height of 98 meters, its towers and the huge dome as well as the mausoleum of the Hohenzollern noble family in the basement of the cathedral, the Berlin Cathedral is the largest Protestant church in Germany. At least in terms of space.
The cathedral is one of the most popular sights in Berlin and still serves as a place for sermons, state ceremonies and concerts.
You can combine a visit with a walk in the neighboring Lustgarten.

Address: Am Lustgarten, 10178 Berlin

The history of the Berlin Cathedral:
Completion in 1905
Heavily destroyed by bombing in 1944
Restoration in 1975
Despite this, parts of the church were dismantled for ideological reasons, including the Hohenzollern Hall of Honour, a statue of Bismarck and a cross on the dome
After restoration work, a new cross was placed on the cathedral dome in 2008

Checkpoint Charlie

What is there to discover? The former border crossing from the Soviet to the American sector of Berlin
Admission: free of charge, adults pay €14.50 and schoolchildren €7.50 in the adjacent Wall Museum
What’s nearby? World Balloon, Asisi Panorama Berlin, Friedrichstrasse, Martin-Gropius-Bau, Topography of Terror, Gendarmenmarkt

On August 13, 1961, the construction of the so-called anti-fascist protective wall began.
In the same year, US and Soviet tanks faced each other at the border crossing for diplomats and officials and aimed their armored tubes at each other – after days of waiting, a small shot was finally fired.
The border house itself is very small and the Zimmerstraße/Friedrichstraße intersection is not particularly inviting either.

Nevertheless, Checkpoint Charlie is an important testament to the Cold War and is well worth a visit.

Address: Friedrichstrasse 43-45, 10117 Berlin

My recommendation: Explore the nearby Wall Museum and learn more about the daring and tragic attempts to escape from the GDR, or visit “The Wall” asisi Panorama Berlin to take a journey back in time to the death strip.

Museum Island

What is there to discover? Five museums of different styles on one island
Admission: €10.00 to €12.00 (regular), €5.00 to €6.00 (children), €19.00 / €9.50 for all museums, 3-day museum pass €29.00
What’s nearby? Humboldt Forum, Berlin Cathedral, Lustgarten, Alexanderplatz, Unter den Linden Boulevard

Museum Island Berlin is the ideal attraction for all travelers interested in art, history and culture.
Five world-class museums are located here in a very small space. Ticket prices vary by museum.
If you want, you can also buy a combination ticket for all museums.
But beware, it is worth dividing your visit to the museums over several days. The density of exhibits is otherwise hardly absorbable.

The five museums on Museum Island
The Old Museum: collection of antiquities, busts and statues
The New Museum: Egyptian Museum and Papyrus Collection
The Old National Gallery: Paintings (Classicism, Romanticism, Impressionism, Biedermeier)
The Pergamon Museum: Museum of the Pergamon Altar, Near Eastern section
The Bode Museum: Sculpture Collection, Museum of Byzantine Art, Coin Cabinet

East Side Gallery

What is there to discover? Largest surviving section of the Berlin Wall, longest open-air gallery in the world
Admission: free of charge
What’s nearby? Ostbahnhof, Oberbaumbrücke, Warschauer Strasse, Mercedes-Benz Arena

The East Side Gallery connects Berlin Ostbahnhof with the Oberbaum Bridge over a distance of 1.3 kilometers.
After the border installations between West and East Berlin were dismantled in the 1990s, this section of the Wall was given a special role in the Berlin cityscape.
About 100 artists from all over the world painted separately the sections of the Berlin Wall that were still standing and set a sign for cosmopolitanism, understanding and peace.
The popular photo hotspot can be visited during a walk.
Disputes flare up again and again as to whether the East Side Gallery should be preserved as a contemporary document or should be demolished.

Address: Mühlenstrasse, 10243 Berlin

The East Side Gallery is not only one of the most colorful sights in Berlin, but is also considered the longest open-air gallery in the world.

Oberbaum Bridge

What is there to discover? Popular destination for revelers and street musicians, former border crossing BRD/GDR
Admission: free of charge
What’s nearby? Schlesisches Tor, Warschauer Strasse, Treptower Park, Molecule Man, RAW site,

Mercedes-Benz Arena, Simon-Dach-Kiez
The Oberbaum Bridge, completed in 1894, is one of the most famous sights in Berlin.
Most people who come to Berlin to party will most likely pass the Oberbaum Bridge.

The former eastern district of Friedrichshain was merged with the western district of Kreuzberg as a result of a regional reform. The transition between the two districts is on the Oberbaum Bridge.

Address: Oberbaum Bridge, 10243 Berlin

RAW terrain

RAW flea market (Friedrichshain)

The RAW flea market takes place every Sunday between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. on the RAW site in Berlin Friedrichshain, which is also home to numerous clubs and bars.
In addition to second-hand clothing, bags, jewelery and antiques from private dealers, some traders also trade in household goods, lamps and other products on the Revaler Straße site.
The range of snacks at the food stands tempts with great street food, which is also suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Address: Revaler Strasse 99, 10245 Berlin

Opening hours:
Every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m

Victory Column

What is there to discover? The huge observation tower with a view of the Tiergarten and the Brandenburg Gate
Admission: €3.00 (regular), €2.50 (reduced)
What’s nearby? Large Tiergarten, Brandenburg Gate, Bellevue Palace

In 19th century Prussia, people boasted about the victory over Denmark in the German-Danish War of 1864 and finally erected the Victory Column as a symbol of it.
Since further battles were fought against Austria and France during the time of its construction and the troops were defeated, the tower consisted of three segments, which were intended to symbolize the battles against neighboring countries.
The National Socialists relocated the Victory Column, which previously stood even closer to the Reichstag, raised the Victory Column and symbolically added a fourth segment.

Address: Big Star, 10557 Berlin

The figure, conceived by Friedrich Drake, weighs 35 tons. She wears a laurel wreath, an iron cross, an eagle helmet and size 92 shoes.

Potsdamer Platz

What is there to discover? Big city skyline like in the movies, cinema, bars, numerous shopping possibilities
What’s nearby? Sony Center, Holocaust Memorial, Tiergarten, Philharmonie Berlin, Mall of Berlin

Hard to imagine today, after the Second World War the chic area on Potsdamer Platz became an absolute no-go area.
The American, British and Soviet territories met here.
Today, Potsdamer Platz looks a little like it was exported from a major American city.
Modern skyscrapers meet the huge Mall of Berlin, the Spy Museum, the Bundesrat or the BLUEMAX Theater of the Blue Man Group.

Address: Potsdamer Platz, 10785 Berlin

The wasteland around Potsdamer Platz was extensively redeveloped after the fall of the Wall.

The Holocaust Memorial

What is there to discover? Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, exhibition under the Field of Stelae
Admission: Exhibition free of charge, tickets must currently be booked online in advance
What’s nearby? Monument to the homosexuals persecuted under National Socialism, Potsdamer Platz, Brandenburg Gate, Großer Tiergarten

If you follow Ebertstraße from Potsdamer Platz in the direction of the Brandenburg Gate, you not only walk past the Tiergarten, but also find yourself in front of the 2,711 concrete steles of the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe.

The gray concrete blocks look sparse and like coffins. The wavy floor and the inclination of the steles shake people’s sense of balance.The Berlin landmark was inaugurated in 2005 and in its desolation and scarcity of information demands some reflective silence.The steles are by no means benches.

Directly opposite in the Tiergarten there is also the equally simple and gray concrete memorial to the homosexuals persecuted under National Socialism.

A small screen in the memorial also plays a film about the reprisals during the Nazi era in an endless loop without sound.

Address: Cora-Berliner-Strasse 1, 10117 Berlin

Ku’damm and the Memorial Church

What is there to discover? Huge shopping mile with the Memorial Church and the KaDeWe
Admission: free of charge
What’s nearby? Zoo Berlin, Bikini Berlin, Zoo Palast, Wittenbergplatz

Conceived as a magnificent boulevard towards the end of the 19th century, the Kurfürstendamm is one of the most visited attractions and landmarks in Berlin.
The huge promenade is now known above all as the main artery of consumption and is divided into several different zones.

While the part of the Ku’damm that runs towards Tauentzienstraße and the world-famous department store KaDeWe is characterized by branches of popular trend labels, the prices of goods in the designer shops towards Grunewald are significantly more expensive.
If you have the leisure, you can actually stroll around the Ku’damm for a whole day and go to the theater in the evening.
The Schaubühne am Lehniner Platz is above all modern with controversial themes and current zeitgeist.

Between beauty clinics and gold gems, there are currywurst stalls and pubs hidden in the side streets that seem to have fallen out of the flow of time.

The Memorial Church

Only the tower of the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, which was almost completely destroyed by bombs during the Second World War, is still standing on Breitscheidplatz.
Built from 1891, the neo-Romanesque building was badly damaged in 1943 in bombing raids and the resulting fires.

The ruins of the church lay fallow in the years that followed.
The destroyed masonry of the tower was secured and preserved as a memorial to peace.
In 1961 the main tower with a square bell tower and a nave was consecrated again as a church ensemble.
The memorial for the victims of the attack on Breitscheidplatz is also located at the Memorial Church.


What is there to discover? German Cathedral, French Cathedral and Concert Hall
Admission: free of charge
What’s nearby? Friedrichstrasse, Komische Oper, Bebelplatz, Unter den Linden boulevard

The Gendarmenmarkt is just a few steps away from Friedrichstrasse.
Snazzy buildings, chic gastronomy and one of the most beautiful Christmas markets in Berlin make the Gendarmenmarkt one of the most beautiful squares in the capital.
More than 330 years ago, the Gendarmenmarkt was not even in Berlin, but in the Berlin suburb of Friedrichstadt, which was conceived on the drawing board.
Only 22 years later, in 1710, the city was incorporated.

The Nazis dismantled the Schiller figure in front of the concert hall to have more space for their meetings. Since 1988, Schiller has been back in his place in front of the Konzerthaus.

The attractions of the Gendarmenmarkt: concert hall and the two cathedrals

The concert hall on Gendarmenmarkt, together with the French Cathedral and the German Cathedral, significantly characterizes the image of the popular excursion destination.
Why do the German and French Cathedrals look almost the same?

The two churches were planned as an ensemble and should peacefully unite different faiths in one place.
Huguenots who had emigrated to Prussia found a place for their masses in the French Cathedral.
The German Cathedral opposite functioned as a meeting point for German-Reformed and Lutheran congregations.
After the services, they often went to a performance together in the concert hall.

The two churches are only called cathedrals because of their roofs. The French word dôme means “dome” in German.


What is there to discover? Multifaceted street from Berlin-Mitte to Kreuzberg with Berlin sights and shops
What’s nearby? Palace of Tears, Checkpoint Charlie, Gendarmenmarkt, Mehringplatz, Kulturkaufhaus Dussmann, Galeries Lafayette, Friedrichstadtpalast

Friedrichstrasse is generally regarded as a shopping street between Friedrichstrasse train station and Checkpoint Charlie.
This section is now even car-free. Due to the history of its origins, Berlin does not really have a classic inner city with a pedestrian zone – at least an attempt is being made here to create a pedestrian zone.
The road, which is 3.3 kilometers long, starts in the Mitte district at Oranienburger Tor and ends in Kreuzberg at Mehringplatz.

Nikolai quarter

What is there to discover? Small town district in the middle of Berlin, the oldest settlement area in the city
What’s nearby? Alexanderplatz, TV tower, Red Town Hall, Märkisches Museum

The Nikolaiviertel, the oldest residential area in Berlin, begins just behind the Rotes Rathaus.
The Nikolaiviertel is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Berlin and gives an insight into the historic cityscape of Berlin.
At least that’s how the historic city center of Berlin was imagined in 1987.
The Nikolaiviertel is a bit idiosyncratic, but actually an extraordinary attraction in Berlin.
Because strolling like in a small town is really great here.

Address: Am Nussbaum 3, 10178 Berlin

On the occasion of the 750th anniversary of Berlin, the GDR leadership had the Nikolaiviertel built.
For example, prefabricated buildings with historic facades were built.
Some historic buildings have even been demolished in other parts of the city and rebuilt here.
The Nikolaikirche is actually an original and was built here from around 1230.

Schloss Charlottenburg

What is there to discover? magnificent Prussian pleasure palace with palace garden and orangery
Admission: €12.00 regular, €7.00 reduced
What’s nearby? Radio Tower, Messe Berlin, Deutsche Oper, Museum Berggrün

Charlottenburg Palace is one of the most impressive sights in Berlin and the surrounding area.
The original Lützenburg Palace was built between 1695 and 1699 and was intended to function as a pleasure palace for Sophie Charlotte, wife of Elector Frederick III.
However, after the Elector was crowned King of Prussia, the complex, which was almost modest by royal standards at the time, was to be converted into a magnificent palace.
Nowadays, the palace is one of the most popular attractions in Berlin and shines in contemplative light and mulled wine-soaked Odeur during the Christmas market at Charlottenburg Palace in December.

Address: Spandauer Damm 20-24, 14059 Berlin

Berlin Zoological Garden

What is there to discover? Most species-rich zoo in the world
Admission (only zoo): €16.00 regular, €8.00 children 4-15 years.
What’s nearby? Kurfürstendamm, Memorial Church, Bikini Berlin, KaDeWe

The Zoological Garden Berlin is the oldest zoo in Germany and one of the most popular attractions in Berlin.
Together with the Tiergarten Berlin in Friedrichsfelde, the zoo gives the opportunity to become aware of the endangered biodiversity of this earth.
In the zoo, for example, you can expect big cats, elephants and the only pandas in Germany.
In order to be able to enter the adjacent Aquarium Berlin, you can either buy a single ticket for this area or a combined ticket.

Address: Hardenbergplatz 8, 10787 Berlin

Olympic Stadium Berlin

What is there to discover? Home stadium of Hertha BSC, imposing stadium from the 1930s
Admission (guided tours): Depending on the topic (highlights, BSC tour) from €11.00 (regular), €8.00 (children)
What’s nearby? Funkturm, Messe Berlin, Teufelsberg with a former listening station, Altstadt Spandau

When huge crowds of people with fan chants in Berlin move in the direction of the Westend, their path usually leads to the Berlin Olympic Stadium.
The Olympic Stadium definitely belongs on the list of sights in Berlin.
Commissioned by Hitler in 1936 as a prestige building for the Olympic Games in Berlin, today not only Hertha BSC play in the monumental building, but often also well-known stars from rock and pop.
In addition, international sports competitions are still held.
During a guided tour of the stadium, you can discover the players’ tunnels and walk to the edge of the field.

Address: Olympischer Platz 3, 14053 Berlin

GDR Museum

What is there to discover? Interactive museum with scenes from everyday life in the GDR, exceptionally without clichés
Admission (guided tours): €9.80 (regular), €6.00 (reduced)
What’s nearby? Berlin Cathedral, Unter den Linden boulevard, Museum Island, Humboldt Forum

The GDR Museum in Berlin-Mitte gives an interactive insight into everyday life in the GDR without any clichés about the wild fairy tales of Zonen-Gaby and, on top of that, scientifically well-founded.
This included not only the Stasi and the scarcity economy, but also pop culture and normal dating life.
Driving simulations in a Trabi or an authentic living room with everyday objects are particularly popular and vivid.

Address: Karl-Liebknecht-Str. 1, 10178 Berlin


What is there to discover? Scene of the Nazi book burning in 1933
What’s nearby? State Opera Unter den Linden, Humboldt University, Brandenburg Gate, Museum Island

Bebelplatz is sometimes also referred to as Opernplatz because it is right next to the Staatsoper Unter den Linden.
If you take a closer look and don’t just drive past, you will discover bookshelves embedded in the floor.
On May 10, 1933, the Nazis burned books here, in which allegedly non-German books were burned in an instrumental way.
Directly opposite is the main building of the Humboldt University.
Certainly not a classic Berlin attraction, but definitely worth seeing.

Address: Unter den Linden, 10117 Berlin

Topography of Terror

What is there to discover? Unrelenting insight into the crimes of the Gestapo and the SS
Admission: free of charge
What’s nearby? Martin-Gropius-Bau, Potsdamer Platz, Checkpoint Charlie

Fanatical racial cults and bestial crimes cost millions of lives, not only in Germany.
The topography of terror in the former headquarters of the Gestapo at Niederkirchnerstraße 8 provides a small insight into the almost immeasurably long list of brutal murders and repressions.
In addition to the permanent exhibition, there are changing, focused special exhibitions, for example on the Nuremberg Trials.
The Topography of Terror should not only be treated as an international tourist attraction of Berlin, but is also considered a sight for people from Berlin and Brandenburg.

Address: Niederkirchnerstrasse 8, 10963 Berlin

Berlin Underworlds

What is there to discover? Unrelenting insight into the crimes of the Gestapo and the SS
Admission: free of charge
What’s nearby? Martin-Gropius-Bau, Potsdamer Platz, Checkpoint Charlie

Discover the capital from a whole new perspective: on your next trip to Berlin, plan a trip to Berlin’s underworld.
This spectacular attraction of the metropolis is currently still one of the best insider tips among the sights of Berlin.

Take a tour to the Berlin Underworld and you will explore a dark, hidden part of the capital like you have never experienced before: With a bunker tour you will explore narrow paths and underground dormitories, which were supposed to offer protection against air raids during World War II.
You roam through old subway shafts, bunkers or test tunnels and use special equipment to discover breaches in the wall that were created during attempts to escape from the GDR to the West.
An adventurous trip is pre-programmed for you here:
You will discover sights that would otherwise remain hidden from you.
Exhibitions on many different topics and with rare exhibits take you on a journey to the second Berlin.
