Look out for this mural if you are on bus trip around Berlin. Wrapping itself around an ugly modernist skyscraper built in 1964, know as House of Teachers. At 125m long it is one of the largest murals in Europe. Entitled ‘Unser Leben’ (Our Life)...More

When Germany was reunified, in the East there was a push to eliminate much of the visual images produced in East Germany in the 1950s-80s. This building is a survivor of that. It's a boxy, mini-skyscraper sitting in the noise and swirling traffic of the...More

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
