Wonderful Berlin has so many attractions and sights. It may not be so strange
considering the size of the city. Therefore, you must first of all make sure

The Brandenburg Gate can be found at Pariser Platz. This triumphal arch is
perhaps the most famous landmark in all of Berlin. The Brandenburg Gate was
built in 1734, but was applied in a neoclassical style in the late 18th century.
During the Cold War, the triumphal arch was the marked distinction between east
This is the old summer residence of the lords of the Hohenzollern. The castle
is surrounded by majestic Baroque-style park-like gardens, which are referred to
as the most beautiful in Germany. Perfect as a relaxation from the hustle and
bustle of the big city.
Zoo in Berlin
The big zoo in Berlin is called Zoo Berlin. ( Zoo Berlin ) and is located in
Hardenbergplatz 8. The zoo is one of Europe's largest, and it is highly
recognized. It is also the oldest zoo in Germany. In total you will find about
20,000 animals here. The entrance fee costs just over NOK 150, or you can get a
combo ticket with both the zoo and the aquarium for about NOK 210.
This museum is Berlin's finest museum and a must for visitors to the city.
The name is given to the museum because of its Pergamon altar from ancient
Greece. The museum is located on the Museum Island in the east of Berlin.
The parliament building is a powerful expression of Germany's past. It has
not been many years since the Reichstag was the subject of remodeling and
renovation, and today it appears with renewed vigor and is a tourist magnet.
Head to the top of the building for glorious views of Berlin. Admission is free,
but be prepared for a long queue and a half hour wait.

Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church
This is perhaps the foremost symbol of Berlin after the Brandenburg Gate. The
church is only a ruin, but the tower symbolizes the horrors of war. The church
was originally built as a memorial to Emperor Wilhelm the 1st.
TV Tower in Berlin
The TV tower Fernsehturm is located on Alexanderplatz and extends as much as
365 meters into the air. The Eiffel Tower.
The viewing platform is 203 meters above the ground, offering the city's best
views. There is a rotating restaurant in the TV tower, where the restaurant uses
approx. half an hour on the round.
Berliner Dom is located on the Museum Island, Am Lustgarten and was rebuilt
in the New Baroque style around 1900. The church dome extends almost 100 meters
above the ground, and the interior of the church impresses even the most
Originally, the church was built in the mid-18th century. The church has been
restored in modern times. Also, remember to visit the tomb of the vicar when you
visit the church.
Tourist in Berlin
Berlin is a city full of life and culture, and the city oozes a very special
atmosphere. You must try to bring Berlin's diversity during your visit here.
Berlin is a very sprawling city and it will take a long time to walk between all
Either you can buy a day pass or three day pass on public transport, or you
can join one of the many sightseeing buses that take you around the city with
comments in optional language. These stop at all the major sights, where you can
jump off whenever you want and continue when you want. The price is 200-300
kroner for most people. Everyone stops at the Brandenburg Gate and
Reichstag, where you can buy a ticket and start the tour.
Day 1 in Berlin Attractions and Tourist
Start your day with a hearty breakfast at the hotel before making your way
down to the Unter den Linden and Bebelplatz streets, east of
Berlin. After seeing the many sights on Bebelplatz, such as the State Opera and
Neue Wache, walk west along the Unter den Linden towards the Brandenburg Gate at
the Paris Platz. This triumphal arch is perhaps the most famous
landmark in all of Berlin.
Continue from the Brandenburg Gate to the Reichstag, which is just north of
the Paris Platz. The building in many ways symbolizes Germany's history. We
recommend everyone to take a trip into the parliament building, walk up the dome
and enjoy the view of Berlin. Admission is free, but there is often a long
queue, so be prepared for at least a half hour wait.
After visiting the Reichstag, return to Paris Platz and follow the
Ebertstraβe just south. You will pass the great and controversial memorial
of the millions of Jews murdered during World War II. This consists of hundreds
of rectangular concrete blocks set up in a symmetrical pattern over a 200x200m
area. Just south of this was Hitler's Leading Bunker, but it cannot be visited
and is not marked in any way to avoid it becoming a pilgrimage site or memorial
You will soon arrive at Potsdamer Platz, which in many ways is Berlin's new
center. Here you will find cinemas, musical theaters and a variety of
restaurants. There are many modern and architecturally intriguing buildings that
tower around Potsdamer Platz, not least the Mercedes headquarters and the new
Sony Center entertainment center. For the merry-go-round, the arcade at
Potsdamer Platz is the place. Feel free to grab a coffee, a beer or some food at
Potsdamer Platz before heading on.
Go Potsdamer Straβe to the Culture Forum at Sigismundstraβe.
This is a complex of museums, be it the Gemäldegalerie, the Neue
National-Galerie or the Kunstgewerbemuseum. Treat yourself to one of these
museums for a cultural aha experience. If you have children with you, you can
continue all the way to the Zoologischer Garten, the Berlin Zoo which is also
Germany's oldest and one of the very best.
Close to the zoo you will find Breitscheid Platz, where you will see
the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church. The church was bombed during World War II
and has been left "untouched" in memory of the world war. From Breitscheid
Platz you go Kurfürstendamm west. This is Berlin's second major
parade street, and maybe you are staying in a hotel just down this street?
Kurfürstendamm has lots of shops and plenty of restaurants. Join the "The
story of Berlin" presented as a multimedia show in Kurfürstendamm 206.
The sign for the show is an old flying wing. See also Galerie Brusberg, which
represents the magnificent old Berlin, and get the contrast when you see the
skyscraper Neues Kranzler-Eck afterwards. Feel free to grab a beer or coffee at
Café Kranzler in front of the building. This cafe is legendary in Berlin.
Day 2 in Berlin Attractions and Tourist
Today we have to walk less, but to a greater extent enjoy art and culture.
After breakfast at the hotel, head to the Museum Island and first and foremost
the Pergamon Museum. Keep in mind that this area is hugely popular because of
its many sights, and on weekends you have to count on long queues.
The Pergamon Museum is perhaps one of Berlin's major sights,
and features world-leading art and architecture from ancient times. Many
startling finds made by German archaeologists can be found in their entirety in
the Pergamon Museum.
For those of you who are more than average interested, we recommend buying a
day pass on the Museum Island, which gives you access to all the island's
Bohemia parts of Kreuzberg
After visiting the Museum Island, you will reach Kreuzberg, which in our
opinion is Berlin's most fascinating district. Here is a blissful mix of
immigrants, bohemians, artists, gays and students. All in all, this is a melting
pot that is teeming with exciting shops, bars and eateries. Here is also the
Jewish Museum, which should be compulsory for all tourists in Berlin. The museum
offers nearly 1,000 years of Jewish history, including the time around World War
II. The address is Lindenstraβe 14.
Close to the museum ( Friedrichstraβe 43-45 ) is Checkpoint Charlie.
This was the most famous border crossing between East Germany and West Germany.
There is not much to look at here anymore, but you are on historical grounds.
Exit Kreuzberg and head to Victoria Park, which is a wonderful oasis where those
who want to relax while others throw themselves over the shops in
Bergmannstraβe. End the day with a dinner at one of the many good
restaurants. We can suggest the street Carl-Herz-Ufer and the
restaurant Altes Zollhaus.
In the evening we recommend a visit to one of the city's many jazz clubs, or
one of the three opera houses. For those who are first time visitors, maybe
Komiche Oper can be an alternative? Or why not visit one of the city's
