Since the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Hackesche Höfe have developed into the central contact point for both Berliners and people visiting Berlin. Lavishly restored, these courtyards are located in the historic “Scheunenviertel” or “barn district” in the Spandau suburb of Berlin-Mitte.

Brandenburg Gate

A symbol of unity.

While the only remaining city gate of Berlin formerly used to represent the separation of the city between East and West Berlin, since the Berlin Wall came down in 1989 the Brandenburg Gate has now come to symbolize German unity. In addition, this gate made of sandstone is one of the finest examples of German classicism.


Germany`s largest square!

Alexanderplatz is one of the most famous squares in Berlin and certainly the largest. Named after the Russian Czar Alexander I, who visited the capital of  Prussia in 1805, “Alex” became a traffic hub when a train station was established there in 1882. The construction of the Central Market Hall (1886) and Tietz department store between 1904 to 1911 transformed Alexanderplatz into one of the main shopping areas of Berlin.  It was even made famous in 1929 by Alfred Doblin’s classic novel “Berlin Alexanderplatz.”


From the bridle path to the boulevard.

“Kudamm” is the most popular place for going on a stroll in Berlin. The 3,5 km long boulevard goes all the way from Breitscheidplatz in Charlottenburg, where the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church is located, to the Rathenauplatz in Grunewald, where the villa district of the western part of Berlin begins.
