Interesting mini tour but not a lot to see. Security is high so be prepared for that. No cafe to grab a drink or bite to eat.

While having to book the visit itself was a bit of a hassle, and ended up being stuck awkwardly in the middle of the day, the visit itself was good and informative, providing some sense of direction and history to the rest of my stay.

The glass dome is a magnificent work of art. No matter how many photos you take, you still find it very tempting to take more, as the shape of the glass cone varies as you go higher or lower. Reservation can be made even before...More

Visited here today, however didn’t go inside. You could buy tickets to do so easily, however opted not too. Note if you do this you will go through security like at the airport so keep that in mind! Great opportunity for a photo outside!

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
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
