    This memorial is a stark reminder of the very real sociopolitical divisions that can occur within a single city. It's misleadingly simple; a wall that ran through Berlin for decades represented pain, suffering, and death for so many people that it's a bit hard to align, and yet here we are. The memorial is very well-organized and sensitive to the trauma people endured. Be sure to enter the station and learn more about the history surrounding the wall and its effects.

    There’s plenty to chose from on “museum island”, but we went for the Pergamon because they offered some good sounding guided tours. We went for the “take five” highlights tour, and it was well worth the price of 15 euros, since this also included general admission. The guide was exceptionally knowledgeable and erudite in his explanations, and in fact it was all quite academic and pitched at a high level – much appreciated. The group size was not too large – so easy to be involved and ask questions; it’s advisable to book on-line in advance, however. You’ll be taken through a substantial period of ancient history via the processional way of ancient Babylon and the market gate of Miletus, an ancient Greek and Roman city on the western coast of Anatolia. Of course there is some controversy about structures such as the Ishtar Gate, a passageway into the inner city of Babylon, being brought to Berlin and reconstructed in a museum – our guide was happy to field questions on this tricky subject and offer a justification, based on accessibility and preservation, which you may or may not be happy to accept!

    We only had time to visit two museums plus the Berlin Cathedral, but they were all very informative. The Bode Museum could have used more signage/information in English.

    I've never been inside. I was staying on the side street at hostel. Due to the lack of private space there, or any space really, I would walk to the corner after dark to sit on the benches in the side square of the building. At the time I didn't know what it was. What I did know was when the lights came on and the sun went down those windows were absolutely stunning. Magical, and thats before the joint. Trust me when I say if you are anywhere nearby in the evening, take a walk by, sit on the bench and just appreciate this remarkably stunning masterpiece.

    Despite the Special Olympics events going on and areas cordoned off, there were still good views of the gate and area surrounding it. The subway stop at the bridge had excellent life-size photos from just after the war and showed the gate's damage. Very enlightening.

    It felt really odd when going through the areas where the stone was higher and was a great memorial. Everyone was respectful and a great place to pay respects to victims of the holocaust

    This is a quirky and unique place to visit, and should be high on your list of “must-sees” if you are in Berlin. After the wall was breached most of it was pulled down, but in this area of Berlin 1.3km was left standing, and it wasn’t long before numerous artists were turning their hand to creating what has become the longest open-air gallery in the world. Take a gentle stroll along the full length of the “gallery”, and be sure to find the most iconic images – the Trabant bursting through a fractured Berlin Wall, and the “Fraternal Kiss”, which depicts Leonid Brezhnev and Erich Honecker locked in the passionate embrace referenced in the title.
    PS Don't be put off by the location - it's well worth the effort.

    Fabulous old Gothic cathedral although not a whole lot to see. Chose not to walk the hundreds of steps to the bell tower. However, there was a wedding going on when I was there, so that was cool. Choir was excellent. Crypt was closed.

    In someways a brilliant museum, the building itself and the contents of the exhibitions are fascinating. However, incredibly confusing layout and the audio guide was rather pointless as it rarely related to the items on display.

    Was great to see the bust of Nefertiti without hordes of people trying to see it at the same time which is so often the case at other museums.

    Worth a visit.

    There is so much to see at this museum! Our group of adults and kids under 10 enjoyed the trains, ships, and planes. We spent to much time exploring these areas, that we never even made it to the science part of the campus. The admission price was reasonable, so we definitely felt like we got our money’s worth even though we didn’t see it all. You could easily spend an entire day (if not two) here! The museum wasn’t crowded, so there was plenty of space to take your time taking in whatever interested you. Be sure to walk outside and check out the areas outside of the train wheelhouses, too!

    Highly recommend for any visit to Berlin, beautiful park with plenty of space to enjoy the sun or walk around.

    We decided to hire one of the electric scooters to explore the park; these are so easy to hire just scan the QR code and you’ll be riding within a few minutes. Lots of paths to do around the park and on a sunny day it’s gorgeous.

    The Charlottenburg Palace is, in my opinion, one of the top main attractions in Berlin. However, the visitation is not highly frequented so it is very nice and not stressful to visit this place. You can visit it independently from the weather or the age. Everybody can see something new and have fun. There is also a restaurant and a location where you can have a big party like a wedding or a prom. This place is very popular for such events.
    It is easy to reach by public transport, with the train and there is a bus station in front of the palace, there is also a large parking lot.
    It was build in the 17th century and the facade was completely repainted about two or three years ago. Inside the palace is a museum with changing exhibitions.
    Every year, there is a large Christmas market in front of the palace and the palace is beautifully illuminated. Behind the palace is a big garden which is absolutely lovely. There are a small pond and a lot of trails where you can walk around. You also can ride a bicycle through the garden or have a small picnic with some friends or do sports in a group. Often there are groups of people doing yoga. There are several sheep in the meadow so the lawn does not have to be mowed. This is very environmentally friendly and also a small attraction

    Had a great trip, as a seasoned zoo visitor really enjoyed the lion habit and the panda garden. Could spend all day ere, plenty of places to get food and drink or have a picnic.
