Top six places to fall in love with Berlin at first time

Berlin is the city where German history was written. Here you will find the Reichstag, which is the symbol of democracy, the famous Brandenburg Gate and the Berlin Wall, which played an important role not only in the history of Germany, but also in the history of Europe. And what magnificent views open from the Berliner Fernsehturm!

Today, Travellizy is going to tell you about the top 6 places that are worth visiting, if you are in Berlin for the first time, so let's go.

 

1. Take a photo against the background of the Brandenburg Gate

No traveller would leave without a picture like that! It is not in vain that they are considered to be one of the most important installation sights in Berlin, and it is from here that many people begin their acquaintance with the German capital.

 

2. Visit the glass dome of the Reichstag

The Reichstag building and its famous glass dome are located in the heart of Berlin's government district.

Some dream of visiting one of the most important historical buildings, where the parliament makes important political decisions, while others are attracted by the stunning view of the city and the opportunity to visit inside the architectural miracle - the glass dome of the Reichstag. The entrance is free of charge, but pre-registration on the official website is mandatory!

 

3. Take a walk along the Berlin Wall

The history of the Berlin Wall is impressive, it is still hard to imagine how this wall divided a large city and entire families with their loved ones. Tourists come to look at its remains and take pictures with the most famous fragment of the Berlin Wall - a graffiti with Brezhnev and Honecker kissing. Be prepared to wait in a queue, as crowds of tourists usually gather near this place. By the way, on November 9, 2019, Berlin celebrates 30 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall, and there will be many events in this city. So if you are interested in history, then it's time to book tickets.

 

4. See the panorama of the city from the Berlin TV Tower
