Berlin Wall

The Berlin Wall is one of Berlin’s most iconic landmarks, and while not much remains of the dividing barrier between the east and west of the city, what’s there is truly astonishing. Much of it is now preserved as an open-air art gallery, featuring stunning murals.

Tiergarten

This is Berlin’s largest park, ideal for escaping the hustle and bustle of the city. Plenty of families spend their entire weekends here, and once you see the rivers, ponds and statues you’ll know why!

Museum Island

This region of Berlin hosts almost all of the city’s major museums, including the Pergamon-Museum of ancient art and architecture, the Bode-Museum housing sculptures and Byzantine art, and the Alte Nationalgalerie where you’ll find German artwork from throughout the centuries.
