One cannot be in Berlin without thinking of the past. Kathe Kollwitz was a German artist who worked in a variety of mediums. Whether it was painting, printmaking, etching, lithography, woodcuts or sculpture her works depicted the very personal cost of war and suffering. Kollwitz...More

the shown art of Kollwitz is accompanied by an excellent description of the history and therefore gives a very good feeling for the circumstances of a sad bygone time

In the west end of the city just off the kurfurstendam. Well worth a visit although it will not cheer you up. This wonderful and unusual artist portrays death in interesting ways.

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades
and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone
streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop
