COVER STORY
Berlins landmark monument,
built by Carl Langhans in
1792, is the last remaining
of 14 original city gates.
While hordes of tourists
gape below, goddess of
victory Nike drives the fourhorsepower chariot atop the
gate. Berliners celebrated the
Walls fall in 1989 by standing
on it in front of the gate, so dont miss it - see more
on p.26.

Transport
Although Berlin is lodged in the middle of the great
empty vastness of northeast Germany, its very well
connected to the rest of civilisation by bus, train, Autobahn
and air. Once in Berlin, youll wish that your home town had
such good public transport.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT
Berlins integrated network of U-Bahn (Untergrundbahn,
underground trains), bus, and Straenbahn (trams) run
by BVG and S-Bahn and RE (Schnellbahn and regional
commuter trains run by DB) usually works like a dream. Just
remember the number or colour and end station of the line
you want to use, and youll be navigating the labyrinth-like
stations like a local.
Most S/U-Bahn trains, buses and trams run every 5-15 minutes
during the day. M buses and trams run every half hour at
night; U-Bahn trains run every 15 minutes on weekend nights,
with N buses following their routes every half hour (starting
from Hackescher Markt) on weekday nights.
Tickets can be used on all BVG, S-Bahn and local RE train
services. Vending machines have instructions in English
and accept coins, often bank notes and cards too. Berlins
AB travel zone contains nearly everything; youll only need
an ABC-ticket for Potsdam and Schoenefeld airport.
With an Einzelfahrschein ticket (AB-zone 2,70, ABC 3,30)
you can travel one-way for up to two hours with unlimited
transfers; its cheaper to buy four tickets at once (Vier-FahrtenKarte, 9). Buy a 1,70 Kurzstrecke (short distance) ticket if
you want to travel up to three S/U-Bahn stops, or up to six
stops by bus or tram. If you anticipate a lot of travelling, get
the Tageskarte (day ticket, valid until 03:00 the next morning;
7,00) or the seven-day pass (30,00). Groups of up to five
people are best off with a Kleingruppenkarte (group day
ticket, 17,30). The multi-day Berlin Welcomecard (19,5042,00) is valid for transport and some attractions.
Before boarding the S- or U-Bahn, always validate your
ticket by punching it in the yellow or red machines near
the end of the platforms. On buses and trams, the machines
are on board. Public transport uses the honour system, and
there are regular checks by uniformed and plainclothes
inspectors. If you are caught without a valid ticket youll
be fined 60 on the spot.
BVG
The Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe run the U-Bahn, buses
and trams. Their handy trip planner can be found at
www.bvg.de/en/Service.Qtel. +49 30 194 49, info@bvg.de,
www.bvg.de/en.

TAXIS
Berlins friendly and ubiquitous beige Mercedes taxis can be
called or hailed on the street. They can also be found queing
at S/U-Bahn stations and near nightlife hotspots. Not all taxis
accept credit cards, ask when you book. Prices are the same
day and night; flagfall plus the first kilometre is 3,40; then up
to 7km its 1,79/km, thereafter 1,28/km. Waiting costs 25/
hr. For short hops hail a taxi already driving in the direction

CYCLING
As long as its dry, getting around Berlin is really best done
by bicycle. Its a flat city, there are plenty of cycle paths and
wide bus lanes for you to use and you see so much more
from the saddle than from the U-Bahn train window. Note
that cycling on the pavement is illegal and may get you
fined, even though everyone does it. Cycling across town
may take a while, though for 1,60 you can take your bike
on an S/U-Bahn train too. There are dozens of bike rental
places, most charging 10-12 per day. The urban bike
trip planner www.bbbike.de can suggest low-traffic and
cobblestone-free routes across Berlin.

CITY CARDS
Discounts are a welcome relief, so if you are planning
to travel around town a lot and see more than one
museum, get a reduced rate card. Note that students
and youths may get better reductions at museums
using their student ID cards.
BERLIN WELCOMECARD
The Berlin WelcomeCard is a combined transport and
reduction card (museums, bike tours/rental, boat tours,
etc) valid for zone AB or zone ABC (which includes
Potsdam and Schnefeld airport). Cards are valid for 48
hours (AB 19,50, ABC 21,50), 72 hours (27,50/29,50),
and 4 (31,50/34,50), 5 (35,50/40,50) or 6 days
(41,50/45,50). Theres also a 72-hour variety (42/44)
that includes free admission to the five Museumsinsel
museums. Cards are sold online and from BVG ticket
machines, tourist offices, S-Bahn offices, hotels and kiosks.
The similar Berlin CityTourCard (www.citytourcard.com)
is a little cheaper, with restaurant, bar and club discounts
geared towards younger travellers; a 48-hour ticket costs
17,50 for AB, 19,50 for ABC, and there are also 72 hours,
4, 5, and 6-day tickets.Qwww.berlin-welcomecard.de.
MUSEUM PASS BERLIN
50 museums, including the permanent collections of
the Staatliche Museen (state museums), can be visited
with the Berlin Museum Pass (24/12, valid three days).
Its for sale at the museums, tourism offices and online.

CRIME & SAFETY


Berlin is a relatively calm and safe place. Instances of petty
crimes are low compared to other Western European capitals, though you shoulds still always keep an eye on your
valuables and never leave bags, wallets and mobile phones
unattended. Just like anywhere else, be careful when walking in unlit streets late at night. Race-related hassles seldom
occur in Berlins touristed central areas.

ELECTRICITY
Electrical current in Germany is 220v AC, 50 Hz via standard European round, two-pin sockets. Converters can be
bought at the airport and large electronics shops, and
many hotels will have them at the front desk too.

ERASMUS STUDENT
NETWORK
How do international students get to meet locals
and the city during an academic exchange? The
best way to do it is via the Erasmus Student Network
(ESN), one of the biggest interdisciplinary student
associations in Europe. It was developed to help
internationals during their stay abroad. ESN is present
in more than 430 Higher Education Institutions in 36
countries. The closest section to Berlin is the section
in Potsdam, where more than 20 volunteers care for
you. For information, see potsdam.esngermany.org or
www.facebook.com/esn.lei.potsdam.

MONEY
Germany uses the euro (). Banknotes come in denominations of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500. Coins,
whose design depends on in which country they were
minted, come in denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50
cents and 1 and 2. Credit and debit card payment is
possible in a wide range of shops, restaurants and nightlife
venues, though always have cash on you for small payments
just in case. This guide indicates which places do not accept
plastic. ATMs can be found everywhere; those that charge
for transactions clearly indicate the fee during the process.
Exchange offices can be found at the major train stations.

VISAS AND ENTRY


FORMALITIES
EU citizens can stay in Germany as long as they like, though
registration at a Brgeramt office is officially required for stays
more than a few months. Citizens of Australia, Canada, Hong
Kong, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Mexico USA and a few
others can enter Germany without a visa for a maximum of 90
days in any six month period. All other nationals need to apply
for a German visa in advance. Note that theres no passport
control between Germany and the other 14 European Schengen countries, and visas to any of these are valid for travel in
Germany too. All visitors need a passport that is valid for at
least fourth months from the date of arrival; EU citizens can
enter with a valid EU identity card too. Check the MFA website
for the latest immigration details: www.auswaertiges-amt.de.

Rainfall (mm)

Germans like their beer, drinking about 107 litres per capita
per year (down from 136 litres 15 years ago). Unfortunately
Berlins local brew, the slightly sour Berliner Weie, is only really palatable mit Schuss, with a shot of sweet fruit sirup. Cocktails and long drinks of varying quality and price are available
in a multitude of places. Non-alcoholic drinks often sipped
in Berlin include Apfelschorle, a refreshing mix of apple juice
and sparkling water, and Club-Mate (kloob mah-tea) ice tea,
made with extract of the South American mat plant, caffeine
and tannins, and is popular with local hipsters as it comes in
a screw top bottle so you can hiply tote it around (or drink to
just below the top label and top it up with wodka).

Berlin Districts
Berlin is four times the size of Paris, and even though the
city consolidated its 23 districts into 12 in 2001, youre still
left with 23 self contained areas (Kieze) in which Berliners
often find everything they need. Public transportation is
far-reaching and effective though, and youll grow to love it
as you shuttle between the four areas with the most sights:
Charlottenburg, Tiergarten, Mitte and Kreuzberg.

MITTE (MI)
Since reunification, Mitte has rightly snatched back the title
of most-visited district from Charlottenburg. On and off the
boulevard Unter den Linden, whose trees Marlene Dietrich
once extolled in song, are baroque and classical monuments
to Prussian culture. The proximity of state libraries, the State
Opera, Humboldt University, the old Arsenal (now the
German History Museum), Gendarmenmarkt, Museum
Island, Berliner Dom, and the abandoned East German
Parliament building make for more talk, less walk tours. The
architecturally humbler area of Mitte is the Scheunenviertel,
whose layout looks as if 17th-century planners got
interrupted during a game of pick-up sticks. Its on these
streets that the casually chic saunter from courtyard gallery
to sidewalk caf, pointing out directions to tourists seeking
out the latest hotspots or traces of the Jewish community
that lived here from the late 17th-century until the mass
deportations of the Nazi era.

CHARLOTTENBURG (CB)
If downtown to you means wide, traffic-filled streets,
crowds of shoppers, five-star hotels and tall buildings, then
Charlottenburg comes closest to fitting the bill in Berlin. Much
of what was here was bombed in the war and built anew in the
1950s. The nexus of activity is the knot where Kufrstendamm,
Joachimsthaler Str, Bahnhof Zoo and Tauentzienstr. come
together. Follow what becomes an increasingly silken
ribbon down Kurfrstendamm (Kudamm) and the setting
becomes more genteel where you cant see the buildings for
the trees. Nearby but isolated from the hoi polloi is Schloss
Charlottenburg, the residence of King Friedrich I.

TIERGARTEN (TG)
Tiergarten is both a district and the name of the 255 hectare
park that began as the Great Electors hunting grounds in
the 1600s and became increasingly more civilised with
landscaping in the 1800s. Traffic passes through it, doing a
dosey-doe around the Siegessule (Victory Column). Slicing
though the parks length is Str. des 17. Juni, which leads to
the Brandenburg Gate at the eastern end. Just south of it are
the museums of the Kulturforum and Potsdamer Pl.

KREUZBERG (KB)
Thanks to a large Turkish community and more hippies,
anarchists and alternative folks than you can shake a
didgeridoo at, Kreuzberg feels neither East nor West. It
was the black sheep of West Berlin, left alone in its far-off
facebook.com/BerlinInYourPocket

dreamstime.com

room to play loud music and draw on the walls (literally, it


was parked in a dead-end, cornered by The Wall). In 1987
social and economic frustration exploded into violence and
vandalism during the traditionally political demonstrations
of May Day. Every year since, the city prepares for a long
night of stone-throwing and burning automobiles. May
1st is essentially Kreuzbergs way of reliving its 15 minutes
of fame. The rest of the days are marked by backgammon
at the mens clubs, caf-sitting on the Landwehrkanal,
and ambling down the popular drags Oranienstr.
and Bergmannstr. Two major museums, the House at
Checkpoint Charlie and the Jewish Museum, are planted in
the staid parts of the district.

PRENZLAUER BERG (PB)


On a low hill northeast of Mitte, Prenzl Berg is an old
working-class district in the former East Berlin that came
through the war relatively unscathed. The best places to
soak up the atmosphere are Kollwitzpl, Helmholzpl. and
along Kastanienallee (all near U-Bahn Eberswalderstr.).
Prenzlauer Bergs few attractions include the Vitra Design
museum and a 19th-century brewery complex that is now
the Kulturbrauerei culture centre. A good time to visit is
Saturday when the eco-market is open on Kollwitzplatz, or
Sunday when everyone sits outside being cool and eating
breakfast all day.

FURTHER AFIELD
Districts mostly known for their restaurant and nightlife
scene are Schneberg (SB), the centre of gay Berlin, and
Friedrichshain (FH), filled with creatively tattered and
tattooed students. Berlin has green spots galore, and after
Tiergarten the most popular getaways are the Grunewald
forest and lake Wannsee, in the southwest district of
Zehlendorf (ZD).

Sports in Berlin

Eisbren Berlin

City Press GmbH

Berlin is without a doubt the German capital of sports


- the city has no less than six professional sports teams,
playing five exciting spectator sports: Hertha BSC and
FC Union play football, the Eisbren is an ace ice hockey
team, Alba is Berlins renowned basketball club, the
Fchse play handball, and volleyball is taken care of by
the BR Volleys. Their home matches attract huge numbers
of visitors to Berlins stadiums; last season alone 2,4
million tickets were sold for their events. In addition to
this, Berlins streets regularly host huge sports events such
as the public viewing festivals during major sports events
abroad, and the city also hosts countless amateur sports
matches.
Despite being rivals, Berlins six professional sports
collaborate to improve the circumstances for professional
sports in Berlin, promoting Berlins image as an international
sports event destination.
ALBA BERLIN (BASKETBALL)
Also known as the Albatrosse,
Berlins basketball club is Germanys most successful, and
has the largest fanbase; home
matches easily attract 10,000
spectators. Since going pro in
1991, Alba has won the German League 8 times and the
German Cup 7 times, and was also the first German
team to win an international title. Alba started the
new season well with its young new Turkish coach
Ahmet Caki, several newcomers and captain Dragan
Milosavljevic.

8 Berlin In Your Pocket

The home matches of Berlins pro teams are easy


to visit: you dont need to understand German to be
able to follow a match and unlike in other European
countries, sports matches in Germany are quite
peaceful events, meaning its no problem to bring
the whole family to the stadium for an afternoon or
evening of fun. Finding out about which matches are
playing where can be problematic for visitors however
as the club websites are not all available in English, and
some make it difficult to find the upcoming playing
dates. In the club details here we have listed all home
matches for the following months, though always keep
an eye on the club websites for changes or additional
matches.
Berlins official English-language sports website
www.berlin-sportmetropole.de has information about
all the teams, venues and tickets; ticket booking site
www.eventimsports.de sells tickets for all matches.
Enjoy cheering for Berlin!
Eisbren Berlin
Berliners are rightly proud of their professional icehockey team, Eisbren Berlin, or polar bears. Founded
in 1953 it was already very succesful in the GDR before
winning the national Deutsche Eishockey Liga no less
than 7 times since 1990, more than any other team.
Although the team is refinding its strength, hopes are
high for the German League though and theyre the
easiest Berlin team to see this season, with plenty of
home matches.

BR VOLLEYS (VOLLEYBALL)
Berlins professional volleyball team originates
in the western district
of Charlottenburg, but
plays home matches at
the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Prenzlauer Berg. The BR
Volleys have been particularly successful since the late
1990s, winning the German Bundesliga title five times.
The unbeatable team won everything they could last
season and have already started the new season with
some stellar performances.

Originating in 1953 in East
Germanys Dynamo sports
club, the polar bears are Berlins
popular professional ice hockey
team. They won the national
league 7 times, have also bagged
the European Trophy. Their
home matches at the MercedesBenz-Arena are true familyfests, with a festive, goodhumoured atmosphere. Striker Marcel Noebel is still
in rehab but back on his skates again after tearing his
knee ligaments, and as promised, Kyle Wilson brings

HERTHA BSC (FOOTBALL)

FC UNION BERLIN (FOOTBALL)

Nicknamed Eisern Union (iron union), FC Union is the


working mans football team for Berlin, originating in
East Berlin in 1966 and a feared counterpart for the
GDRs state-influenced Dynamo club. Union is still
fiercely independent, based in their charming An
der Alten Frsterei stadium. The club has resisted all
commercialism, with a club anthem sung by punkrock
legend Nina Hagen, and a stadium partly owned by
passionate fans.

Berlins main football team plays home matches at


the impressive Olympiastadion, Germanys second
largest stadium, built for the 1936 Olympic Games
and renovated for the 2006 World Cup. Hertha was
founded back in 1892 and is know as the Alte Dame,
the old lady, witnessing its glory years between 1926
and 1931. Hertha started off very well this season, with
plenty of substitution options for coach Pal Dardai,
though the team is very reliant on striker Vedad
Ibisevic; we hope he stays in shape!

Galleries & Exhibitions

Graffiti on Berlins East Side Gallery

Berlins museum and gallery world is constantly in flux, and


perhaps now more than ever. Several large museums are
closed for lengthy renovations that will last until the end of the
decade, and the contemporary art scene is on the move, with
artists fleeing the rising rents in the Mitte district for atelier space
in outlying districts and galleries regrouping in new cultural
nodes like Potsdamer Strasse. On this page we highlight a few
of Berlins many excellent galleries and exhibitions.
BERLINISCHE GALERIE
This museum for modern art, photography, architecture,
and artist archives concentrates a century worth of
creativity forged in Berlin between 1880 and 1980.
Artists represent the Secession, Expressionist, Dada, New
Objectivity movements, and those representing the divided
city. Giants of German art include Heinrich Zille, Otto Dix,
George Grosz, Hannah Hch and Wolf Vostell.QG4, Alte
Jakobstrae 124-128, Kreuzberg, MU Hallesches Tor,

C/O BERLIN
Recently rehoused in the historical Amerika-Haus near Zoologischer Garten, the C/O gallery presents changing exhibitions of fantastic photography. The current exhibitions of
protest photos by Gordon Parks and conflict photography
by Broomberg & Chanarin are well worth seeing.

SLOW PHOTOGRAPHY BERLIN


Ukrainian artist Oleg Farynyuk photographs subjects
using old techniques, especially the wetplate method
which was invented in 1851 and was the first time photos
could be shot with short exposure times. At the gallery
and shop you can view the resulting high-quality photos,
and have one made.

live on top of the absurd structure. Its full of wonderful
contemporary art, including a tree by Ai Wei Wei and

room. Tours only, book well in advance.

Berlins top hotels all have concierges that are there


to make the guests lives easier. They can inform you
about current events, book tickets, make restaurant
reservations and hand out copies of Berlin In Your

MARTIN-GROPIUS-BAU:
GERMANY - MEMORIES OF
A NATION
600 years of German history in 200 objects, beginning
and ending in Wall-year 1989. Perhaps only the British
can come up with such a simple and effective concept,
and indeed the exhibition The British View: Germany
- Memories of a Nation was a huge success when it
opened in Londons British Museum, accompanied
by the amazing book and podcasts by initiator Neil
MacGregor.
The objects illustrating the momories of the newly
unified Germany tell stories of great German
achievements from a British perspective, of printing
and porcelain, of philosophers, poets and artists,
and of historical events that have shaped the face of
Germany today, including that most terrible memory
of all, the Holocaust. Ernst Barlachs impressive
1926 floating bronze sculpture is an amazing WW1
memorial, the recreated Buchenwald concentration
camp gate symbolises Germanys darkest years while
Georg Baselitzs 1977 Eagle etching reflects on the
fragility of ideals.

80S HITS & ACROBATICS


The eighties were a glitzy time.
The new Wintergarten Show combines
outstanding acrobatics with the
soundtrack of a whole generation
backed by a passionate live band and
grandiose singers.

WINTER SEASON
AT THE DEUTSCHE OPER

La Bohme, 2015

Bettina St

Picture the scene of the Montmartre market square in


the Deutsche Opers grandiose, timeless production of
La Boheme: the four artist friends Schaunard, Marcello,
Colline and Rodolfo who has freshly fallen in love
with Mim - meet at the Caf Momus. The story wont
end well, because Mim has contracted tuberculosis,
and the hard, long winters in Paris last longer than the
money for firewood, food or medicine. Claude Debussy
praised Puccinis depiction of Paris in La Boheme,
and youre sure to be enchanted by the musical and
theatrical ambiance depicting the atmosphere of a
cold winter morning in the city.
La Boheme is an annual favourite of the Deutsche Oper
Berlin, as is Hansel & Gretel and The Barber of Sevilla.
This year these operas are joined by Tchaikovskys
Eugen Onegin and Verdis Aida. Escape Berlins cold
winter on a magical voyage to mediterranean Seville
or the Russia of the late 19th century... experience the
Aida production transforming the opera hall into a
stone mausoleum, or be enticed into the forest by the
witch in Hansel & Gretel.
Christmas means spending time together with the
family, and many Deutsche Oper performances are
family shows with 10 advance sale tickets available
for children and teenagers, for instance for Tosca on
10 December, for performances of Hansel & Gretel
on 18, 19, 23 December and 1 January, as well as for
La Boheme on 3 January, The Barber of Seville on 8

Two outstanding touring shows visit the Admiralspalast


theatre this winter. From 3-8 January, be delighted by
Slavas Snowshow, a dream-like tale woven by Russian
master clown Slava Polunin and his colleague clowns.
Snow and ice play a major part of the stories, and the
audience is swept from fantasy to reality looking at the
antics on stage. The audience experiences a snowstorm,
helps weave a giant spider web and may get involved
in a water battle. From 24-29 January, the rocking
Stomp show has the audience bouncing along to the
wild and spectacular international percussion show. For
tickets and information see www.bb-promotion.com.

Its obvious that Germans love 1980s music more than


anyone else and until 19 February, the Wintergartens
show Relax combines dazzling acrobatics with great
singers and a live band playing the best feelgood hits
of the crazy 1980s by Roxette, Depeche Mode, David
Bowie and others. Its sure to evoke strong momories
of the days of CDs, MTV, Italo-disco, disco-funk, neon
colours and strange haircuts.

modern dance theatre and as one of the most influential
choreographers of the twentieth century. This exhibition
focuses not only on the work in terms of staged
performances but above all on the very foundations of the
choreographers oeuvre, on her creative practice and on
the key aspects and people that have accompanied and
shaped her progress.

Golden Ratio
Youll find it in pineapples, in Da Vincis art, in the face of
Marilyn Monroe and in the architecture of Leipzigs Old
Town Hall. The golden ratio seems omnipresent, even in cat
photos or videos of a brawl in the Ukrainian parliament. The
proportion ratio, known since antiquity, was elevated to the
harmonic ideal in the 19th century. Is there a mathematical
principle behind this beauty or is the golden formula just a
beautiful myth?
Until 26 February

Ernst Ludwig Kirchner: Hieroglyphics
Kirchners works from the collection of Berlins
Nationalgalerie will be shown for the first time in their

wide variety of his work as impressively, and they are
complemented by important loans clarifying Kirchners
hieroglyph concept and works by contemporary artists
Rosa Barba and Rudolf Stingel.

The new exhibition German Colonialism Fragments
Past and Present at the Deutsches Historisches Museum
is the first to look at the short but eventful era of German
colonialism, which lasted from 1884 until the end of
the First World War in 1918. Germany was one of the
major colonial powers at that time, but only in recent
years has its colonial past found its way into public
consciousness to a significant degree partly due to
the debates about the recognition of the genocide of
the Herero and Nama people in present-day Namibia.
Colonial ideology, based on the belief of a European
superiority, lead to the routine exercise of violence
up to the colonial war in Namibia, which developed
into genocide. Players in the colonial game, each with
their own aims, included missionaries, officials, military
personnel, settlers and merchants. Learn more about
Germanys controversial memory of its colonial past,
how the affected countries deal with their past and
about the present situation.
DEUTSCHES HISTORISCHES MUSEUM, Unter den
Linden 2, Mitte, www.dhm.de. Open 10:00 - 18:00.

Bonn politicians and bureaucrats were not happy when
they had to move to Berlin. They sent their favorite Bonn
hangout (named after the West-German embassy in
the GDR) as an advance scout. This laid-back politicians

roast duck, served with pancakes and special sauce, but
theres also a wide variety of soups, and good portions

ZUM NUSSBAUM
What seems a charming old restaurant is in fact a charming
new restaurant. The legendary Under the Nut Tree Inn used
to stand on Fischerinsel island, 200m to the southwest.
When the war-ravaged area was rebuilt in the 1980s, the
inn was reconstructed here. Most patrons dont care for
authenticity, and tuck into the well-priced Berlin specialities
with curious translations, such as brown rolls with dripping.

ZUR LETZTEN INSTANZ
Berlins oldest restaurant doesnt lie on the tourist path,
and maybe thats why German leaders bring visiting
heads of state here when everything in Mitte is too
noisy and crowded. Mikhail Gorbachev visited in 1989,

making do with East German ingredients, so though
decent, its not the Tafelspitz (rump steak) thats famous,
but the spirit of the place where playwright Berthold
Brecht and his actress wife Helene Weigel lived. The small
basement cellar is full of family photographs and original

LANDMARKS
BRANDENBURGER TOR
Berlins landmark monument, built by Carl Langhans
in 1792, is the last remaining of 14 city gates. Nike,
the goddess of victory, drives the four-horsepower
chariot atop the gate. German armies used to begin
their parades here, the fascists spoiled the gate by
staging their torch-lit marches through it, the war
badly damaged it, and then the Wall essentially
bricked the patched-up gate in for decades. Berliners
celebrated the Walls fall in 1989 by standing on it in
front of the gate, and after renovations the gate is the
proud focus point of the renewed square again.QF3,
Pariser Platz, Mitte, MS/U Brandenburger Tor.
NEUE SYNAGOGE
The gilded cupola of the New Synagogue is one of the
most eye-catching sights in Mitte. Exhibits strikingly
balance the restoration of the Alhambra-inspired
synagogue from 1866, with preserved evidence of

its destruction, first on Kristallnacht on November 9,


1938, and then through Allied bombs. Documents and
photographs remember the thriving Jewish community
of the neighbourhood, many of whom worshipped
here in what was the largest synagogue in Germany.
A subtle but effective sound installation adds to the
experience.QF3, Oranienburger Strae 28-30, Mitte,

18:00. Sat closed. Admission 3,50/3.
POTSDAMER PLATZ
Once a busy intersection at the modern heart of a thriving
metropolis, Potsdamer Platz was heavily damaged in the
war, and suffered again when most remaining buildings
were demolished to make way for the Walls death strip.
Hotel and office skyscrapers now add a cosmopolitan edge
to the city, while to the east Leipziger Platz is almost rebuilt.
The most popular public space and architectural attraction
is the Sony Center, with its huge atrium and tent-like
roof, best viewed at night for its impressive lighting.
The neighbouring DaimlerChrysler complex holds
architecture by Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, and the
Arkaden shopping mall.QE/F4, MS/U Potsdamer Platz.
NIKOLAIVIERTEL
Berlins tiny medieval heart is the Nikolai Quarter,
whose only truly medieval-looking building today is the
Nikolaikirche. The church dates to 1230 and was rebuilt
along with the entire quarter in the 1980s to mark Berlins
750th birthday in the area in which the fishermens
settlement first began. No one was trying to outdo Walt
Disney here, and many of the buildings have the simple,
concrete facades that the GDR government could afford.
The small shops in the area mostly deal in toys and
souvenirs and tourists gladly fill the sunny tables at the
restaurants that face the river. On Rathausstrae, theres
a row of restaurants that flaunt old-fashioned Berlin
cuisine and atmosphere. Other rebuilt historic buildings
in the area date to the 1700s, such as the EphraimPalais and Knoblauchhaus. Both have changing exhibits
related to Berlin.QG3, Nikolaikirchplatz, Mitte, MU

REICHSTAG
The name together with its monumental size make most
people associate Germanys neoclassical parliamentary
building with the Nazis, but they have little history here.
After hosting parliamentary sessions since 1894, it was
set on fire just one month after Hitler was appointed
chancellor in January 1933. It was a conference centre
in the years during which it abutted the Wall, while
later artist Christo famously wrapped it in cloth. It was
used as parliament again after a reunited German
government returned to Berlin in 1999. Renovated by
Sir Norman Foster, this building is perhaps the most
public federal building in the world through its glass
dome. On the rooftop, photographs documenting the
buildings history circle the rim above the parliament
chamber. Two ramps spiral up the side of the dome,
an engineering feat even more fascinating than the
panoramic view from the top. Its best to book an entry
time to the dome or for the 90-minute guided tour of
the building in advance online; otherwise queue up
for remaining places at the visitor centre just across the
road. Photo ID is required.QF3, Platz der Republik 1,

CHURCHES
BERLINER DOM
The fourth incarnation of this Protestant church dating from
1905 might not look as massive if the Stadtschloss were
still standing across Unter den Linden (the GDR regime
demolished the castle in 1951). The royal Hohenzollern
dynasty worshipped and was buried here. The climb up
to the domes rim is forgiving, with broad staircases, side
exhibit rooms and good views.QG3, Am Lustgarten,

DEUTSCHER DOM
The baroque German Church from 1701 was completed
with an impressive domed tower in 1785; badly damaged
by fire in the war it was only renovated in the 1980s.

Owned by the state, the bare interior now houses an


exhibition about the development of parliamentarian
democracy in Germany - and how it came to fail so
tragically in the last century. Be sure to see the views
from the windows and the impressive building models
on the top floor. Free tours in English are possible
throughout the day; no booking is required for
individual visitors.QF3, Gendarmenmarkt 1, Mitte,

FRANZSISCHER DOM
The
northernmost
domed
tower
in
the
Gendermenmarkts grand architectural triptych dates
back to 1785, and similarly to its counterpart was
badly damaged in the war. It now has regular concerts
in the simple baroque Friedrichstadtkirche church to
the rear. Enter from the other side for the Huguenot
museum (in German and French only), dedicated to
the thousands of French protestants who moved to
Berlin in the 17th century. Yet another entrance leads

MEMORIALS
FHRERBUNKER
One lonely signpost mark the site where Hitler committed
suicide on April 30, 1945. For the last month of his life, Hitler
lived roughly eight meters below ground in an air-raid
shelter topped by a four-metre-thick, reinforced concrete
ceiling. The unremarkable spot can be reached by walking
to the end of In den Ministergrten, off Ebertstrae. A
parking area surrounded by a pre-fabricated apartment
complex covers the location, which was entirely sealed off
during the complexs construction in 1988-89. The bunker
was once accessed through the Festsaal (ballroom) behind
the Reichskanzler-Palais on Wilhelmstrae.QF3, In den

MUSEUMSINSEL
The cluster of majestic nineteenth century neoclassic
buildings on the tip of the island in the Spree offers
the avid or the temperate museum-goer a number of
impressive collections of art, history and ethnology,

well as their cross-overs into modernity.
ALTE NATIONALGALERIE
Czanne, Rodin, Monet, Degas and Liebermann are
some of the artists whose works hang around this
museum of 19th-century art. The temple-like structure
itself was built in 1876, and is surrounded by a beautifully

ancient Etruscan, Greek and Roman history.QG3, Am
Lustgarten, Mitte, MS Hackescher Markt, tel. +49 30
MEMORIAL TO THE MURDERED JEWS
OF EUROPE
This bluntly named memorial avoids any vagueness
surrounding the term Holocaust. Six million Jews are
estimated to have been killed by the Nazis and this site
serves as Germanys national memorial to those victims. The
design by American architect Peter Eisenmann is a field of
2,700 concrete stelae, or pillars, of varying height, creating
an undulating landscape that fills two city blocks. The
memorial has an undergound information centre which is
not suitable for children.QF3, Cora-Berliner-Strae 1,

WEST BERLIN REVIVAL

After the Second World War, the western half of Berlin


found itself in a very curious situation. This group of city
suburbs, which included the chic shopping and theatre
district of Charlottenburg, was suddenly declared a
separate entity from the eastern part of the city, which
included the entire city centre district. After the fall of
the Wall, West Berlin went through a tough decade of
reorientation, as investment and visitors headed east
to the original city centre. Now however, the West is
undergoing something of a revival. Next to the newly
renovated Gedchtniskirche stands the gleaming
new Waldorf Astoria, overlooking the revolutionary
Bikini Berlin concept mall and the linked 25hours
Hotel Bikini Berlin.

CHURCHES
GEDCHTNISKIRCHE
The ruined Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, a stark reminder of wartime destruction, is West Berlins landmark
attraction. Kept as an open wound, the severe acknowledgement of Germanys culpability is declared on a plaque:
The tower of the old church serves as a remembrance of
Gods judgement, which befell our people during the war
years. The 1895 church was once a symbol of national
pride: even synagogues contributed to its funding. Inside is
a gilded mosaic of the Hohenzollern dynasty. The modern
chapel and bell tower beside it were completed in 1961,
and are worth entering on sunny days for the amazing blue
stained glass windows. Concerts take place every week,

suites in a high-rise are fat. For the cost of a normal room in
Berlin, you get a fully equipped kitchen too (a supermarket
is across the street) and rates go down for longer stays.

Wittenbergplatz, tel. +49 30 212 00, info@sylterhofberlin.de, www.sylterhof-berlin.de. 160 rooms (80

place serves crispy, freshly grilled duck, served with gingermango sauce, orange sauce, red curry and other toppings.
Or go for Vietnamese standards such as Pho or one of the
vegetarian options. Theres a good selection of drinks and
Asian cocktails too. The design alone is reason to drop by;

BARS

MUSEUMS

ASTRO-BAR
A firm Friedrichshain favourite, this incredibly scruffy sci-fi
themed bar is open late - very late - and serves good cocktails
at great prices. Visited by a wild variety of people, weekend
evenings are the best times to come, when DJs from Berlins
underground party scene spin their electropop and retro
records. No real dancefloor unfortunately, but nobody will
stop you from just wiggling anywhere. It has an Attacks
From Mars pinball machine.QI4, Simon-Dach-Strae 40,
Friedrichshain, MS/U Warschauer Strae. Open from
20:00 - open end. DJs every night from 22:00. B

working classics you can try several games yourself.QI3,
Karl-Marx-Allee 93a, Friedrichshain, MU Weberwiese,
tel. +49 30 60 98 85 77, www.computerspielemuseum.de.
Open 10:00 - 20:00. Closed Tue. Admission 8/5.

CRACK BELLMER
A barn of a bar amidst all the clubs in the formerly industrial
RAW compound. Crack Bellmer is not just a place for drinking
however; theres film screenings, and a good-sized space
for dancing to DJs at 80s or swing nights. Find the entrance
at the southern end of Simon-Dach-Strae.QI4, Revaler
Strae 99, Friedrichshain, MS/U Warschauer Strae, www.
crackbellmer.de. Open 19:00 - 05:00. Closed Mon. UNB

CLUBS
BERGHAIN
A legendary techno club. Pretty much anything goes on the
main dance floor, in the Panorama Bar and in the dark rooms
of this huge old power plant. The doorman picks from the
queue of hopefuls to create the right mix, so parties are always
varied and exciting. Arrive early Sunday morning for the best
atmosphere. There are concerts and events on weekdays
too, and in summer an outdoor Diskogarten.QI3/4, Am
Wriezener Bahnhof, Friedrichshain, MS Ostbahnhof, tel.
+49 30 29 36 02 10, www.berghain.de. Open Fri 24:00 Sat 12:00, Sat 24:00 - Mon 09:00. UNGBW
MATRIX
Directly underneath under the Warschauer Strae U-Bahn station
DJs lay down tracks of RnB, straight house, soul, electro, disco
and pop on seven dance floors within the vaults that date back
to 1901. Theres always a party here, 365 nights a year. Thursday
is student night, Friday has party classics with free champagne
before midnight for ladies, Saturday is Fruity Night, with juicy
cocktails.QI4, Warschauer Platz 18, Friedrichshain, MS/U
Warschauer Strae, tel. +49 30 29 36 99 90, www.matrixberlin.de. Open 22:00 - 06:00. Admission 3-6. UGBW
POSTBAHNHOF CLUB
Popular with students and others in their 20s/30s, this well-run
club set inside the former mail station next to Ostbahnhof has
three dancefloors and an outdoor bar. The music varies nightly
depending on the party theme; everything from 90s, RnB and
rock to house and electro. Unlike other clubs in the area, this
is no overhyped favourite - you can simply expect to have a
good time here. Also known for concerts and other events.

DEUTSCH-RUSSISCHES MUSEUM
In the southeast, the building where Germany signed
its surrender on 8 May 1945 now serves as the GermanRussian museum. More rooms focus on World War II, but
exhibits include Soviet relations to both East and West
Germany and the presence of the war following the war.

STASI MUSEUM
East Germanys State Security Service or Stasi was responsible for
intelligence gathering both at home and abroad. It spied on its
own citizens, sometimes employing the friends, colleagues, and
family of those they wished to keep an eye on. Today, this humble
museum shows the office of Erich Mielke, the feared Stasi
minister for 32 years, in its original dull state. Theres a video of him
testifying before a panel in 1989, symbols of Communist kitsch,
and many documents in German.QRuschestrae 103, Haus 1,
Friedrichshain, MU Magdalenenstrae, tel. +49 30 553 68 54,
www.stasimuseum.de. Open 11:00 - 18:00, Sat, Sun 14:00 18:00. Admission 5/4. Closed until 17 Jan.
STASI PRISON
The most hard-hitting of all GDR-related museums, the Stasi
Prison shows the sheer brutality of this dictatorship. Used by
the Soviets and the GDRs secret service to extract confessions
in advance of (show) trials, the Hohenschnhausen prison
swallowed thousands of people who underwent horrific
physical and psychological torture in the chilling submarine
cell block and the interrogation rooms. A short film is followed
by an excellent 90-minute guided tour, vividly explaining how
efficiently the prison system worked, and how nobody ever
escaped. Take tram M5 from Alexanderplatz to Freienwalder
Strae and walk 600 metres.QGenslerstrae 66, tel. +49 30
98 60 82 30, www.stiftung-hsh.de. English tours on Wed,
Sat, Sun at 14:30. Admission 5.
THE WALL MUSEUM (MAUERMUSEUM)
Right next to the East Side Gallery, the longest remaining stretch
of the Berlin Wall, this new museum uses films of historic events
and interviews with witnesses plus some exhibits to tell the
story of the structure that split the city from 1961 to 1989. Not
to be confused with the Mauermuseum at Checkpoint Charlie.
QMhlenstrasse 78-80, Friedrichshain, MS/U Warschauer
Strasse, tel. +49 30 82 71 77 17 40, www.thewallmuseum.com.
Open 10:00 - 19:00. Admission 12.50/6.50.

Prenzlauer Berg
On a low hill northeast
of Mitte, Prenzl Berg is an
old working-class district
in the former East Berlin
that came through the war
relatively unscathed. After
1989, the cool brigade
pounced on the area, and
houses that were once
home to East German
punks were renovated
in odes to pastel. The
number of wine shops and
young parents pushing
pricey prams indicates the level of gentrification here. The
best places to soak up the atmosphere are Kollwitzplatz,
Helmholzplatz and along Kastanienallee. One of Prenzlauer
Bergs best attractions is the Kulturbrauerei culture centre,
set in a 19th-century brewery complex. This chapter also
covers some places in multicultural Wedding, just to the
west.

POCKET WALK: PRENZLAUER BERG


Start walking uphill along Kollwitzstrae from U-Bahn
station Senefelder Platz. From leafy Kollwitzplatz turn
into beautiful Husemannstrae, which was already
restored in GDR times, and left into Sredzkistrae
where youll spot the Kulturbrauerei complex ahead;
enter beside the tall chimney and wander through its
courtyards to the northern exit. Cross Danziger Strae
and amble down Lychenerstrae to pretty, caf-lined
Helmholtzplatz. Follow Raumerstrae west, turn left
down Pappelallee and cross underneath the U-Bahn
station to Eberswalder Strae; youll soon reach the
popular Mauerpark and the top end of Bernauer Strae
with its excellent Wall Memorial.

HOTEL

GERMAN
DIE SCHULE
Modern and light German food on Berlins prime catwalk.
Kastanienallee, also known as casting alley, is a perfect
place to watch Berlin street style. Die Schule has a terrace
facing the street and the airy interiors belie that these
rooms used to be classrooms (hence the name). You can
have all the German food classics, and even better: you
can have them all at once: try German Kleinigkeiten, small
samples of everything the local cuisine is famous for.QG2,
Kastanienallee 82, Prenzlauer Berg, MU Eberswalder
Strae, tel. +49 30 780 08 95 50, www.restaurant-dieschule.de. Open 11:00 - 24:00. BW
METZER ECK
Opened 1913, time seems to have stood still in the oldest
tavern in Prenzlauer Berg - and thats the way the regulars
like it. The Eck serves inexpensive Berlin dishes - sausages,
Boulette (hamburger), and Bratkartoffel (fried potatoes),
and has a letter from artist Heinrich Zille to the first tavern
owner hanging on the back wall, as well as a savings box
that regulars once contributed to.QG2, Metzer Strae 33,

RESTAURATION 1900
Our Kollwitzplatz favourite, 1900 exhibits some fascinating
photographs of the neighbourhood before (Trabant) and
after (Smart) 1989. It serves excellent Berlin and German
food, as well as some pasta and vegetarian options.
Come on Saturday morning to watch locals shopping at
the weekly market, and on Sundays to fill up at the allyou-can-eat breakfast buffet.QH2, Husemannstrae

FAST FOOD
KONNOPKES IMBISS
The Ziervogel family started selling their famous Wursts
in 1930. This simple shack is a convenient stop for those
spilling out of the Eberswalder Strae U-Bahn; the Imbiss
is just south, beneath the tracks. To eat your Currywurst like
a true native, order it ohne darm (without the intestine skin
wrapping).QG1, Schnhauser Allee 44b, Prenzlauer

A spot for those with healthy lust for flesh can grill n chill.

from blue (extremely rare) to well done. For the undecided,
theres a mixed grill, while the thirsty can delve into the
wine and cocktail menu.QH1, Pappelallee 36, Prenzlauer

GUGELHOF
During the early bloom of Kollwitzplatzs gentrification,
the success of little Gugelhof was sealed by heads of state:
Schrder, Fischer, Albright and even Bill Clinton made surprise
visits. German, French, and Swiss dishes share the menu; this
is where to try flammekuchen, a thin-crust Alsatian pizza. The
atmosphere is lively and service is friendly.QH2, Knaackstrae

ITALIAN
PIZZERIA I DUE FORNI
Atypical for Berlin, this Italian restaurant is not very chic, the
service is rather cheeky, and the whole place has the feel
of an overcrowded student canteen. But the cheap pizza is
highly praised, and the lively, convivial atmosphere of i Due
Forni is the perfect primer for a night out on the town.QG2,

SANTIAGO
This cocktail lounge overlooking Kollwitzplatz has a
somewhat dodgy interior leather sofas and glitzy girl
statues that wouldnt look out of place in a nightclub
but manages to get the punters in with a range of
attractively priced offers like cocktails during the happy
(before 20:00) and blue hours (from 01:00). Theres an
eat-all-you-can dinner on Wednesday and brunch at
weekends.QH2, Wrtherstrae 36, Prenzlauer Berg,

WEINSTEIN
An older crowd savours an evening of conversation and
wine at this cosy wine tavern. Pick a meal to help anchor
the 40 vintages available by the glass. There are few better

of sherries.QH1, Lychener Strae 33, Prenzlauer

CAFS
ANNA BLUME
Named after a lyrical poem and with a sexy Mucha flower
girl on the wall, this is an excellent, relaxed caf. Serving up
coffee, cakes, crepes, meals and the usual Berlin breakfasts,
its one of the better spots for people-watching or just
reading. Intriguingly, it also sells flowers (Blume) from the
connected shop next door and the smell of coffee and
fresh flowers combines very well.QH2, Kollwitzstrae 83,
Prenzlauer Berg, MU Senefelder Platz, tel. +49 30 44 04

SCHALL UND RAUCH
Noise and Smoke is a great place to enjoy a breakfast buffet
on lazy weekend mornings, or to down specials at the bar
at night together with a variety of artists, students and
young in-crowd. But its more than just a caf - the adjacent
hotel has modern and affordable double rooms.QG1,

A neighbourhood bar if there ever was one, there arent just

of friends yakking up a storm. DJs play classics, soul, disco,
and funk in the small back dance room.QG1, Lychner

CLUBS
GEBURTSTAGSKLUB
Twenty year-olds fill the two low-ceilinged rooms of this

Sightseeing
LANDMARKS
KULTURBRAUEREI
Follow the yellow brick wall of this 19th-century
brewery and youll eventually find an entryway into a
nightlife Mecca that resembles an Old Town setting. A
cobblestone pedestrian way courses through the centre
of the complex, whose 25,000 square metres is filled with
bars, restaurants, clubs, galleries and a cinema. The only
thing you wont find is freshly brewed beer; Schultheiss
shut down production here in 1967. Soda Club is a both
a restaurant and popular nightclub, and Kesselhaus and
Alte Kantine host anything from readings to theater to
live bands.QG2, Schnhauser Allee 36-39, Prenzlauer

MUSEUMS
ZIMMERMEISTER BRUNZELS MIETSHAUS
Gentrification has transformed many Prenzlauer Berg
apartments into deluxe dream houses; this fascinating
museum shows master carpenter Brunzels apartment
in its original state, with extensive information about
its construction, utilities, furnishing and the often
squalid living conditions around 1900 in Prenzlauer
Berg and Berlin.QH1, Dunckerstrae 77, Prenzlauer

PARKS AND GARDENS


MAUERPARK
The immensely popular Wall Park has no greenery
to speak of; this is an intensely used piece of former
border strip thats especially busy on Sundays when it
hosts a flea market and the immensely popular Bearpit
Karaoke (every second Sunday from 15:00), where
anyone can grab the microphone and sing for a crowd
of thousands.QG1, Eberswalder Strae, Prenzlauer

POCKET WALK: KREUZBERG


Kreuzberg is best explored in two parts. From Platz der
Luftbrcke station walk west to Viktoriapark and climb the
Kreuzberg for views north over the city. Descend eastwards
and walk along genteel Bergmannstrae, perhaps
visiting a caf or the market hall, before walking south to
Columbiadamm for access to the the former Tempelhof
airport, now a wonderful park.
Start a tour of the fascinating eastern end of Kreuzberg
at Kottbusser Tor U-Bahn station; wander north through
little Istanbul to Oranienplatz and follow the park to
the Engelbecken pond where you can follow the former
Wall along Bethaniendamm to Mariannenplatz, a centre
of Berlin subculture. Stroll down Waldemarstrae to
caf-lined Lausitzerplatz and cross under the U-Bahn
line to lively Grlitzer Park. From here, go north into
Falckensteinstrae to discover more of Kreuzbergs street
art, or head south along Ohlauer Strae and across
Landwehrkanal into the trendy Kreuzklln district for
cupcakes and cocktails.

GETTING THERE
The Bergmannstrae area is best reached from
Friedrichstrae station on the U6; get off at Mehringdamm,
or at Platz der Luftbrcke for the Viktoriapark. For the gritty
end of Kreuzberg hop on the U8 from Alexanderplatz
and pop up at Kottbusser Tor. The Kreuzklln bars are
within pubcrawling distance of Schnleinstrae and
Hermannplatz stations, on the same line.

Thanks to a large Turkish


community and more
hippies, anarchists and
alternative folks than
you can shake a bong at,
Kreuzberg feels neither east
nor west. It was the black
sheep of West Berlin, literally
cornered up against the
death strip and left alone
to play loud music and
draw on the walls. By now,
the protesting students
of 1968 have grown grey
alongside the Turkish immigrants. Every year since 1987,
Kreuzberg relives its 15 minutes of fame during the traditional
May Day political demonstrations, which invariably turn into
a long night of stone-throwing and burning cars. Otherwise,
Kreuzberg is aMITTE
perfectly safe district to wander through, and
its all about backgammon at the mens clubs, caf-sitting
along Landwehrkanal, and ambling down the popular
Oranienstrae and Bergmannstrae drags.
This chapter also covers areas south of Kreuzberg: leafy
Treptow west along the river Spree, the Tempelhof
airport-turned-park which attracts thousands of visitors
in summer, and the upcoming Neuklln district. Here,
the Kreuzklln area around Reuterstrae is increasingly
attracting hipsters, artists, artsy boutiques and weird
nightlife spots.

of mindboggling trivia.

Sightseeing
MUSEUMS
DEUTSCHES TECHNIKMUSEUM
One of Berlins best museums is unmistakably
recognisable by the Douglas C47 plane suspended
above the main building. The huge complex set
in and around an old freight station rail depot has
planes, trains, cars, bikes, computers, phones, radios
and much more. Outside there are windmills and a
brewery. Theres a hands-on Spectrum science centre
for children too.QF4, Trebbiner Strae 9, Kreuzberg,

GAME SCIENCE CENTER
The new Game Science Center is a small, interactive
museum of the future, run by a team of game
developers. Introducing a number of innovative
technologies and playful projects, visitors can

with computers - for example with gestures or eye
movements. Try out the Oculus Rift VR glasses, the
Nagual Dance installation, or play table tennis with
the computer in Pong Invaders.QCharlottenstr. 1,

Kreuzberg
HAUS AM CHECKPOINT CHARLIE
A homespun Great Escape museum of false trunks,
tools, videos, even a submarine, and stills of tunneldigging attest to necessity and desire being the mother
of invention. Visit this museum for dramatic stories of
separated lovers, freedom-seeking families, and fedup senior citizens in the GDR who breached the Wall.
The museum also has art interpreting the concrete division of
the city, and an exhibit on human rights movements.QF4,
Friedrichstrae 43-45, Kreuzberg, MU Kochstrae,
tel. +49 30 251 20 75, www.mauermuseum.de.
Open 09:00 - 22:00. Admission 12,50/9,50.
JDISCHES MUSEUM BERLIN
The famous zinc-plated fortress designed by Daniel
Libeskind contains a moving perspective on the many
ways in which German life and Jewish history are
intricately interwoven. The interior contains dark voids for
contemplation, but the exhibits cover much more than
the Holocaust chapter of Jewish history in Germany.QF4,
Lindenstrae 9-14, Kreuzberg, MU Hallesches Tor, tel.

exhibitions 4/2, combined ticket 7/3,50.
MARTIN-GROPIUS-BAU
Dusty pink brick, gilded mosaics, stucco work run riot - this
is the work of Martin Gropius, great uncle of Walter Gropius,
a founder of the Bauhaus school of design. The building
was completed in 1881 and originally served as a royal art
museum. Like most of central Berlin, it ended the war in a
badly damaged state and wasnt re-opened until 1981. Today,
under the auspices of the Berliner Festspiele, the MartinGropius-Bau hosts excellent touring exhibitions.QF4,

Platz, tel. +49 30 25 48 60, www.gropiusbau.de.
Open 10:00 - 19:00. Closed Tue.
TOPOGRAPHIE DES TERRORS
Beside a souvenir-ravaged stretch of Wall, the cellars are all
that remain of the palace housing the Reich Security (SS)
Office. The fascinating exhibition in the trench and the
adjacent pavilion and park uses models, texts and photos to
highlight the topography of the Third Reich police, military
and security groups that were headquartered in this area,
and discusses their organisation and the terror they cast
across Europe. The most important lesson to take home
is perhaps that these organisation only managed to thrive
thanks to the continuous cooperation of many institutes
and citizens. Set aside 2-3 hours to do it justice.QF4,

VIKTORIAPARK
Before heading up the hill, crowned with Karl Friedrich
Schinkels memorial to the Napoleonic Wars, go to the
corner of Kreuzbergstrae and Grobeerenstrae for an
eyeful of the parks waterfall, constructed in the late 19th
century. Kids stripped to their knickers wade in between
the shallow, tiered levels. 65 metres above, people lean
back against the graffiti-laden monument to take in
the panoramic view. Towards the back of the park, past
a playground and off the Bacci field, is the Golgotha
beer garden. Running parallel to Kreuzbergstrae is a
small petting zoo where children and goats get to meet
and bleat.QF5, Kreuzbergstrae, Kreuzberg, MU

if not three. To that you can add massages of every
imaginable kind (from deep tissue for the particularly
tense, to oriental, aromatic candle-lit or bubble
massages and then some) and then a mid-way
relaxation room where you can lay back and slowly
prepare to return to the real world. Go on, get soaked.
