Sadly due to construction I was only able to look in from the outside, but I've marked this as a place to return.

Kathe Kollwitz is a great artist. SHe has got an own museum near to Kurfürsterdamm. This monument is excellent. You stop in the middle of the busy city and remember. I would recommend to everyone to take some moments to stand by.

This is a complete confirmation that sometimes less is more. Just a simple statue with a lot of meaning just about 200 m from the Humboldt University in the Unter den Linden Street.

Extremely powerful sculpture. Definitely worth the visit... when you go in, it's like you go to another place. I recommend you check the backstory as well - it makes the experience even stronger when you know it!

So simple, so robust, so impressive. Standing here, with our tour guide telling us a little more about the statue and it's backstory, I was lost for words for a little bit. Recommend!

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
