This is something you notice from far away. It is an iconic figure of the city, with a beautiful angel on top. For years I wanted to know this place since appears in a movie I really liked from the 90's Faraway, So Close.

This is in the park and has been moved previously and now stands 7 metres higher. The gold statue is brilliant and stands out especially against dark clouds

My favorite monument has always been El Angel de la Revolución for its sheer beauty. But I was taken aback by this piece. It is worth seeing if you like monuments and art of this kind.

There is a small but very informative and interesting museum on the ground floor and some unique mosaic art on the first level up.The panoramic views from the upper observation deck are spectacular, totally worth the price of admission.

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
