We had a really nice visit here. The changing exhibition about forensic research was very interesting. Also the normal exhibition was really nice, we saw some really cool artifacts. Clearly it's not for the faint of heart, but I think you know this when you...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

of some significant transformations, as well. The
