Wheelchair Access - YES The 'now' has the potential to be emotive and evocative. The 'past' is old and interesting and slightly convoluted. Originally a German-Greek Revival (architect K F Schinkel) Guard House dating from 1816. Interior redesigned to be a memorial by Heinrich Tessenow...More

Warning: there's a bit of a spoiler here... I guess I was feeling very insightful in Berlin, and this really got to me for some reason. This is a memorial "to the Victims of War and Tyranny." It's a mother holding her dead son and...More

Gazing at this sculpture is memorable. Impossible not to be moved by Kollwitz's art. Take a moment to stop here and reflect on the victims of war.

Although you have to look through the bars to see Kollwitz's "pieta," it i nonetheless a very moving and beautiful statue. Her depictions of maternal grief cry out in two dimensions. In this statue, the emotion comes to life.

A most poignant statue commemorating the victims of war in a most central location. Worth seeing (and very near to the Babelplatz where the Book Burning Memorial is located).

Berlin has seen a lot of war and negative military history, which prompted the Government to built this memorial to all victims of war. It's housed in a fantastic Greek inspired building (see pic) and is guarded. Inside the building (free entry) is the actual...More

Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
