The sights of Berlin
Berlin has a large selection of sights that can be visited almost all year round. If you are interested in the history of Germany, you should also visit the Berlin Wall Memorial, Documentation Center and the New Synagogue – Center Judaicum when visiting Berlin. There is not only a lot to see here, but also to learn. Especially the exhibition “Topography of Terror” offers a lot of pictures and video material.
Berlin Wall Memorial
The Berlin Wall Memorial is an important place that is particularly reminiscent of the division of Germany. The historic site can be found on the Bernauer in Berlin and stretches over a length of 1.4 km. The last section of the wall can be viewed at the Berlin Wall Memorial. Visitors can get a good impression of the location and structure of the border facilities on site. Through the remains of the wall, the dramatic events of that time are brought to mind. Many tourists come here every year to take photos of the remains of the wall.
Documentation Center in Berlin
The capital’s documentation center is also an important place to find out about Germany’s history. In the exhibition “Topography of Terror”, the curators Andreas Sander and Klaus Hesse present many photo documents. This is primarily the NS period from 1933 to 1945. The documentation center provides an important insight into German history. One of the focal points of the permanent exhibition is the documentation about the machinations of the police and SS and the crimes committed worldwide. In addition to photo material, there are also some film and sound documents available, which is very interesting. The exhibition is also well suited for children, since the topic of German history is usually also covered at school.
New Synagogue – Center Judaicum
The Neue Synagoge – Centrum Judaicum is one of the largest synagogues in Germany. It was inaugurated for the Jewish New Year in 1866. The museum mirrors Jewish history in an interesting way. The dome of the synagogue can be visited from April to September. The Neue Synagoge – Centrum Judaicum can be found at Oranienburger Straße 28 – 30 in Berlin Mitte. Parts of the building are now listed buildings. There are regular exhibitions in the restored part of the building.
stay in Berlin
Berlin is worth a visit all year round. Many sights are easily accessible by public transport. You can therefore leave your own vehicle in front of the hotel, hostel or pension. A large selection of accommodation options is available through Ootel. Depending on requirements, accommodations with breakfast, private parking or an all-round service are available. If you want to stay independent of the breakfast or dinner times, you should choose an apartment. Here you can plan your day more individually. Apartments are also more suitable for families with children. The children can play undisturbed in the apartment because no direct neighbors are disturbed. A suitable accommodation option can be found quickly and easily via Ootel. Some hotels can be found right in the center of the capital. They offer connecting rooms, luggage storage, free WiFi, family rooms and barrier-free rooms. Due to the large selection, the hotel can be selected according to your own needs.

It offers all visitors the opportunity to take a look at the city. There are many government buildings around the Reichstag, such as the Brandenburg Gate and the Federal Chancellery. Such sightseeing should always be combined with a visit to the synagogue and the Berlin Wall if you are interested in German history.
