Not only amazing museums, bold new architecture and stately palaces make the capital so impressing and its history could not be more dramatic. Major milestones after the 2nd World War were the division into four occupation zones and the rise of the Berlin Wall built in 1961, which separated West Berlin from East Berlin until the German Unification in 1990.

Fans of history and art should not miss the huge Museum Island (Museumsinsel), which is a highlight tourists are heading for. That museum complex of five museums was added to the German World Heritage list in 1999 and is situated on an island in the heart of town. Berlin Mitte (Berlin city center) is the city's historic core and comes up with the most famous landmarks, including the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag, Unter den Linden Boulevard, Potsdamer Platz and the Alexanderplatz with the TV Tower.
