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

of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given

No not a burial site. This is a memorial intended to provoke a reaction from each person who visits, There is no single explanation as to what they are intended to signify. Indeed the architect himself declined to comment... More
