Five Locations You Don’t Want To Miss Out On When Visiting Berlin

Whether you’re interested in history, culture, or just some delicious food, Berlin has a lot to offer. This city is renowned for the diversity of its cultures and its global way of life.

However, if you delve below its brilliance, you will discover a challenging, contentious past. The capital city of Germany has it all: modern attractions and a bustling nightlife, combined with historic monuments and beautiful museums. Here are five locations that you have to visit on your next trip to Germany.

Berliner Fernsehturm

You can’t visit Berlin without visiting the Berliner TV tower. However, some tourists aren’t aware that you can actually take a tour of the inside of this building. You can climb to the very top of the tower for a small fee, and enjoy a beautiful view of this magnificent city. With its height of 368 meters (1,207 feet), it is the tallest structure in Germany and the third-tallest structure in the EU. 

The Empty Library

This historic place is also often referred to as the Bibliothek. The “Empty Library” honors the memory of the Nazi book burnings that occurred in Berlin on May 10, 1933. During this fire, 20,000 books by Jewish authors were burned at the hands of Nazi students. The library showcases empty bookshelves that could hold those 20,000 burned books. This memorial is a strong reminder of the bloodshed that happened in Berlin during the 20th century, and the museum has a simple but effective way of reminding people of the countless tragedies that happened during that time.

Rauch Chocolate House

Do you have a sweet tooth? Then the Rauch Chocolate House could be just up your alley. This lovely chocolate house offers a variety of chocolate desserts, including cupcakes, drinks, cakes, and classic chocolates. You can buy desserts for yourself to try out, or even bring them with you as a souvenir. The place itself is a treat as well. It features chocolate replicas of some of Berlin’s most famous landmarks, including the Brandenburg Gate.

Checkpoint Charlie Museum 

If you have ever looked into visiting Berlin, chances are that you have heard about this destination. Checkpoint Charlie is one of Berlin’s most famous tourist attractions. Also known as Checkpoint C, this is the most famous Berlin Wall crossing throughout the second half of the 20th century. Checkpoint Charlie still exists in the middle of the road, which was previously one of the only linkages between east and west despite the Wall falling in 1989. This museum will help you get a better understanding of the rich history of Germany’s capital, and the difficulties it had to face over the years.

Berlin Cathedral

Another beautiful and historic structure worth seeing. Also known as the Berliner Dom, the cathedral church is a major tourist attraction. The breathtakingly beautiful church interior, fascinating history, and impressive architecture will be worth the wait in line to get a tour of the inside of this church. In addition to that, you can also climb up to the top of this building, to get a stunning view of some of Berlin’s most famous monuments, like the Brandenburger Gate, or the TV tower.
