From Schinkel to Foster: Discover Berlin’s most impressive buildings

From Schinkel to Foster: discover the most beautiful buildings in the city – from romantic palaces and classical buildings to the contemporary structures at Potsdamer Platz.

Many buildings fell victim to bombing during the Second World War and are irrevocably lost today, or were reconstructed after the war, such as the ensemble at Gendarmenmarkt. On a visit to the Reichstag you will be able to see the fascinating interaction of the historical structure and the new glass dome. Marvel over Potsdamer Platz, which rose up as a completely new city quarter after reunification. The Modernist housing estates recount the dawning of a new era in the early 20th century, and have been included on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage sites.
