Paul Löbe House (Government Quarter)

The government quarter with the‘Paul Löbe House’, a parliamentary building opened in 2001, is set in the heart of Berlin. At this location you can breathe history as you can at so many places in the German capital. The light glass building stretching across the River Spree symbolises East and West Berlin’s reunification after the Wall came down. Visitors love to walk along the river promenade.

DZ Bank at Pariser Platz and Brandenburg Gate

The DZ Bank atrium is not only bathed in light, but home to an unusual architectural masterpiece. A closed conference room in the shape of freely formed steel sculpture extends nearly four floors up in the centre of the building. This remarkable organic element is guaranteed to amaze – and is unmistakably the work of star architect Frank O. Gehry.

Berlin’s most famous landmark and perfect setting! After the Wall fell, this monument came to symbolize Germany’s reunification. The Gate is one of the finest examples of German neo-classicist architecture. Today, it also provides a magnificent backdrop for festivals, major sporting events, and the New Year’s Eve celebrations.

Berlin Cathedral

Experience yourself why the Berlin Cathedral with its magnificent dome is definitely one of the capital’s crowd pullers. In the 19th century King Frederick William IV decided that a most magnificent cathedral should be built, as he found the existing dome not pompous enough. Today you can visit the ministry church and even go up to the top of the dome to enjoy a remarkable view of Berlin’s city centre.

Alexanderplatz

Enjoy a perfect 360° panoramic view: 368-metres high, the TV-tower is Germany´s highest building and gives a spectacular view of the city. The restaurant revolves twice an hour. Once the centre of old East Berlin, Alexanderplatz is now Germany´s largest inner city square and a popular shopping spot.

French Cathedral and Concert Hall at Gendarmenmarkt

Gendarmenmarkt, with the French Cathedral on one side and the German Cathedral on the other, is ranked as one of Europe’s most beautiful squares. In summer, this is the venue for open-air concerts. In winter, it is home to an enchanting Christmas market with delicious Lebkuchen and other festive specialities.

With eight major symphony orchestras, Berlin is heaven for the world’s classical music fans. An evening in the Konzerthaus’ Concert Hall with musicians of international renown is especially glamorous. Thanks to the nearby boulevard ‘Friedrichstrasse’ many of Berlin’s finest restaurants and bars are just a stone’s throw away.

Olympic Stadium

The Olympic Stadium hosts many exciting large-scale events and is the home ground of Hertha BSC, Berlin’s premier football club. Built under the Nazis, the stadium’s architecture follows the clear lines of antique sports grounds. Discover the building’s history on documentary panels set out along a ‚History Trail’ across the Olympic complex.

East Side Gallery

The East Side Gallery stretches 1.3 kilometres along the River Spree – both the longest surviving section of the Berlin Wall and the world’s longest open-air gallery. The Wall is decorated with graffiti art and paintings by 118 international Artists from 21 different countries. Don’t miss this perfect photo opportunity.

State Opera House

The State Opera House is a very special venue for an evening out. Once a Royal Court Opera, today this location invites visitors to enjoy a fantastic programme of ballet and opera. Close by is the grand boulevard ‘Unter den Linden’ where department stores and fine restaurants invite you to stroll or taste original German cuisine. (The opera house is currently under restoration, the Staatsoper is playing at Schillertheater in Charlottenburg.)
