Discover Berlin’s sights
There are many sights to discover on a Berlin trip, many of which are less well known. Therefore, they often reflect the unique character of the federal capital better than the major tourist attractions. Such a typical Berlin experience is a visit to the Volksbühne on Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz. The theater is located in Berlin Mitte and was built at the beginning of the 20th century. From the very beginning, the Volksbühne on Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz has seen itself as a modern theater and has remained true to the motto “Art to the People”. The performance of experimental performances with a strong political character has a tradition at the Volksbühne. Often, disciplines are mixed with each other, so that dance, performance, music and theater create unusual pieces that correspond to a new understanding of art. When staying in Berlin, you should not miss an evening in the Volksbühne on Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz. Tickets can be obtained at the box office as well as at advance sales points. The Volksbühne am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz can be easily reached from anywhere in the city using various subway lines and the S9 line.
Nature experience in the middle of the city
Berlin is a green city where you can always relax in the midst of nature. One of the most beautiful parks in the city is the Britzer Garten (BUGA), which was created as part of the Federal Garden Show in 1985. It is a masterpiece of garden architecture and originated with its hills and lakes
a flat arable area, which was located on the southern edge of the West Berlin border. In the middle of the park is a large lake, on the banks of which you can forget the hectic life of the big city for a few precious hours. Meadows and lush flower groves invite you to stroll and the theme gardens are particularly interesting for lovers of garden culture. Children are also thought of in the Britzer Garten (BUGA). You will find entertainment and the opportunity to let off steam on playgrounds, at learning locations and of course also in the animal enclosures and the model boat harbor, which is a popular meeting point in the Britzer Garten (BUGA). Tickets can be obtained at the box office directly at the park entrance or online. The Britzer Garten (BUGA) is open daily from 9:00 a.m. and closes when it gets dark.
A visit to the Gendarmenmarkt
The Gendarmenmarkt is one of the most beautiful places in Berlin. The French Cathedral building defines the image of the square. The building was built at the beginning of the 18th century according to plans by Jean Cayart and Abraham Quesnay and was originally created for the Huguenots who fled from France to Berlin as religious refugees. Years later, King Frederick II had two towers built, which had no function, but gave the church the appearance that it was given the name French Cathedral. The French Tower was badly damaged in the Second World War, but was rebuilt between 1981 and 1987. The French Cathedral building is still in close contact with the Huguenots today, if not for religious purposes. The Huguenot Museum is housed in the building today and shows a moving testimony to the history of the refugees from France in Berlin. It is also worth climbing up to the observation deck, which offers a majestic view of the city.
