Alexanderplatz Nord / Fernsehturm

Alexanderplatz Nord / Fernsehturm
Alexanderplatz – the Television Tower "Fernsehturm" is the most photographed sight in the City of Berlin
  • Red Town Hall "Rotes Rathaus" – seat of the senate and the mayor
  • Neptune Fountain "Neptunbrunnen" – formerly in front of the City Palace
  • Marien Church – 'Berlin Dance of Death' mural
  • Nikolai Quarter – Old Berlin on the Spree!

Colloquially, Alexanderplatz is called simply "Alex" and is a traffic hub in the Berlin district of Mitte. Thanks to the Television Tower "Fernsehturm" it is one of the best-known sights in the city.
On a fine day, the view from the Television Tower "Fernsehturm", from a height of 203 or 207 metres, offers a spectacular panorama of the entire city and is an unforgettable experience! If you have the time and leisure, we recommend Restaurant Sphere in the tower: within each hour the restaurant rotates once around its own axis. Nowhere else will you get such an overview of Berlin, so quickly and yet so leisurely!

Hackescher Markt

Hackescher Markt
Hackescher Markt – Berlin's popular hotspot in Mitte and favoured starting point for nightlife
  • Heckmann-Höfe – connecting August-/Oranienstr.
  • New Synagogue Foundation Berlin – Centrum Judaicum
  • Monbijou Park – amphitheatre and strand bar
  • James-Simon Park – great view of the Spree and Museum Island
  • Former Jewish girls' school Berlin:
    Pauly Saal – chic artists' meeting point
    Mogg & Melzer Deli – New York cuisine
    The Kennedys – world's largest collection about the Kennedys
    CWC Gallery, Michael Fuchs Gallery; EIGEN+ART Lab

The pulsating district around Hackescher Markt is THE hotspot in Berlin. Here, young labels and cool shops are joined by large international brands and designer outlets. The many galleries in the large and small streets are no longer a secret tip in the international art market. Small bars and clubs, popular lounge and cocktail bars, and culinary diversity in the restaurants make this district ideal for nightowls. It is worth taking a peek into the many courtyards and hidden laneways!

Berlin Wall Memorial

Gedenkstätte Berliner Mauer
Berlin Wall Memorial – central site to commemorate the division of Germany
  • Volkspark on the Weinberg – view with Swiss cuisine
  • Zion Church – possible to climb the 67 metre-high tower
  • From the Weinberg via Veteranenstr., Zionskirchplatz, Swinemünder Str. to Arkonaplatz, many cafés and restaurants
  • Arkonaplatz – flea market with flair (Sun 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.)
  • WHITECONCEPTS – international contemporary art
  • West Berlin Gallery – street art and graffiti indoor

The Memorial complex is located at Bernauer Straße and stretches for 1.4 km along the former border. The history of Bernauer Straße can be felt by viewing the 60-metre-long section of the Wall that is preserved there, along with the border area, and the impressive documentation. The construction of the Wall and its consequences were felt particularly dramatically here: the border ran right in front of the houses, some escaped by jumping onto blankets held by the West Berlin fire brigade, separation from family and friends, the first fatal victims of the border regime, clearing of the houses and enforced resettlement, windows and doors were blocked up. Later, escape tunnels were dug here, through which 57 escaped to freedom. But Bernauer Straße also commemorates the peaceful overcoming of the division.

Mauerpark

Mauerpark
Mauerpark – quirky hipster meeting point with small artistes of all kinds, but also sunbathers
  • Konnopke’s Snack Bar – Currywurst according to an old family recipe
  • Friedrich-Ludwig-Jahn Sport Park
  • Max-Schmeling Hall – sport, dancing, concerts
  • Oderberger Straße Swimming Pool – reopening 2015
  • Moritzhof Kids' Farm – feeding time at 5 p.m.

Especially on sunny weekends, the Mauerpark is a popular and quirky meeting place for all of those with a relaxed and open view of life. With great enthusiasm, many talented, diverse and strong-willed musicians, including those perhaps less talented, show off their artistic repertoire here, especially with karaoke. You will hardly believe your eyes - both positively and negatively - with so many performances by colourful artistes. You can find curiosities, bargains and sometimes even treasure at the flea market on Sundays in the Mauerpark. People say that whoever lives in Oderbergerstraße no longer needs to travel anywhere, as the world comes there. Different kinds of cafés, restaurants and snack bars, magical little shops and the colourful street life on Oderberger Straße and Kastanienallee invite you to an inspiring stroll.

Metzer Straße

Metzer Straße
Prenzlauer Berg – in the midst of a trendy microcosm
  • Water Tower – landmark of Prenzlauer Berg
  • Rykestraße Synagogue – neo-romanesque basilica
  • Jewish cemetery – magical triangle between Schönhauser Allee, Kollwitz- and Knaackstraße
  • Konnopke’s Snack Bar – Currywurst according to an old family recipe
  • Gethsemane Church – neogothic brick church

The picturesque old buildings have been lovingly restored in this district, so that they are a delight for every eye. Despite the numerous street cafés and restaurants, it is hard to get a table on warm summer evenings. Savoir-vivre is the mantra displayed in Prenzlauer Berg. The sculpture 'Mutterliebe' by Kollwitz on Kollwitzplatz is an ideal symbol for the area, which is dominated by many young mothers. The ecological market on Saturdays has a great location between inviting street cafés and is also very popular with celebrities. The water tower and its surrounding park are idyllic now, but area also monuments to Nazi crimes. During the National Socialist period, the machine house attached to the water tower served as a concentration camp.

East Side Gallery / Mercedes-Benz Arena

East Side Gallery / Mercedes-Benz Arena
East Side Gallery – longest permanent open-air gallery in the world
  • Eastern Comfort & Western Comfort hostel ships
  • PIRATES BERLIN in the Mühlenspeicher – gastronomy,
    club and event location, strand bar

The world-famous East Side Gallery was painted after Reunification in 1990 by 118 artists from 21 countries across a length of 1.316 metres. It is the longest remaining piece of the Berlin Wall, on Mühlenstraße beside the Spree between Ostbahnhof and the Oberbaumbrücke, and it is a protected monument. The pictures still testify today to the effusive joy and hope that could be sensed everywhere after the fall of the Wall. Using various different artistic means, the artists commented on the political changes in the years 1989/1990. Deliberate vandalism, but also damage from car exhausts and building measures left their mark on East Side Gallery, so that unrecognisable motifs were faithfully restored by the artists in 2009.

The O2 World is Europe's most modern multifunctional area and whoever wants to discover how to transform an ice hockey stadium to a complicated concert area to a motor cross event in only a few days should book a group tour here, as no questions remain unanswered during the 60-minute tours.
The representative and elaborately designed arched bridge with two towers symbolises the growing together of East and West Berlin in the newly created district Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg. The Oberbaumbrücke is a very popular and unusual photo motif, and on the bridge you can enjoy the sunset, with a view of the city in the background.

Jewish Museum

Jüdisches Museum
Jewish Museum – building ensemble composed of a Baroque house, postmodern Libeskind building, the glass courtyard and academy
  • Café Schmus – traditional Jewish cuisine
  • Cosy museum garden

The Jewish Museum in Berlin is one of the most spectacular museum buildings and a real tourist magnet. Whether Libeskind's new building is in fact a 'special' or a 'normal' museum, a deconstructionist masterpiece or a design innovation, intellectualism in the form of architecture or an exhibit in itself – this is decided anew each day and very individually through the perception of each visitor, whom the architecture intends to stimulate.
Café Schmus in the Jewish Museum Berlin is open to all museum visitors as well as to external restaurant guests who do not wish to visit the exhibition. The aromatic dishes represent a new, creative direction in the traditional Jewish cuisine.
