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 settlements from the early 20th century, which UNESCO has included in its World Heritage List, and the buildings of the Bauhaus movement tell of the dawning of new times, of Berlin's modernism.
