What is Berlin famous for?

Here are some of the most famous sights and attractions in the city that make it worth a visit:

  • Brandenburg Gate: this 18th-century monument is one of the few inner city monuments that survived World War II, today it is a symbol of German reunification.
  • The Berlin Wall: perhaps the most famous modern sight of the city, though most of it is now destroyed, parts of the wall can still be seen at the East Side Gallery.
