A visitation of the Island is necessarily, because only on it’s lands you can see several museums located near each other. Of particular interest is the Pergamon Museum. In its expositions is presented a bust of Nefertiti and the altar of Zeus, that the Germans found during the archaeological excavations near the city of Pergamon (Turkey).
The Brandenburg Gate
Another local landmark, both historical and critical. Brandenburg Gate „turned" already more than two thousand years. Vintage Berlin once was surrounded by a high wall and to get into the city you could only go through one of the eighteen gates. And the Brandenburg Gate is all that remains of the former greatness.
World War II caused considerable damage, but build upon the conclusion of hostilities, the gate was fully restored.
Hard to believe, but it’s an amazingly beautiful place and just a couple of centuries ago— it used to be a classic market square, and that big stabling yard was the place where the gendarmerie Regiment kept their horses.
But today the Gendarmenmarkt is the sheer charm of the place. The Centersquare has its own story too but in present day upon your visit you are greeted by two twin Cathedrals and a concert hall. Centersquare is the location of the monument built in memory of the great Friedrich Schiller.
Walking the beautiful grounds of the Gendarmenmarkt is sort of the paradise for romance. It’s a place where you feel the love floating on the air and couples often rush to get there and to spend some quality time or possibly a visit of one of the local restaurants.
Confectionary Fassbender & Rausch
A visit to a confectionery Fassbender & Rausch will surely be worth making the list of local stops that would delight our senses- go there to enjoy the superb German chocolate. You can treat yourself to a cup of coffee, and then buy a beautiful souvenir for family and friends from your trip to Berlin.
Charlottenburg Palace is our last but attention worthy stop.
The palace complex was originally planned as a „summer house" for Sofia-Charlotte— wife of Frederick I — where she could spend time and arrange social events .The Palace was rebuilt and expanded many times, and today it is one of the most beautiful buildings in the entire country.
