Bebelplatz: Site of first Nazi book burning in 1933 Ironically, the square is better remembered today as the venue for the Nazi's first official book burning bonfire on May 10, 1933 just opposite Humboldt University, where Karl Marx had been a student of Hegel's. The action, meant as a dire warning to Nazi opponents was instigated with the purposes of destroying the "Jewish mind and the whole rotten liberalist tendency". Over 20,000 works including those of the so-called subversive writers including Karl Marx, Berthold Brecht and Thomas Mann were set alight and destroyed.

"Alex" to Berliners, a cattle market in the Middle Ages, a military parade square and an exercise ground for nearby barracks until the mid 19th century - Alexanderplatz is the square named to honour Alexander I, Tsar of Russia, on his visit to Berlin in 1805. It was here that Alfred Döblin took the pulse of the cosmopolitan metropolis portrayed in his 1929 novel "Berlin Alexanderplatz" filmed by Fassbinder for a TV series as a portrait of the bustling city in the 1920s before the imminent Nazi takeover. Fast forward to more recent times, one million people congregated here, on 4 November 1989 to demonstrate against the GDR regime shortly before the fall of the Berlin Wall. This was the largest anti-government demonstration in its history. it is 15 minutes by car and 20 minutes by transportation

360° Berlin - Not just the view is worth it Everyone is supposed to remember that Berlin's Fernsehturm (TV Tower) is 365m high and the tallest building in Berlin. As urban legend has it, the tower's height was a deliberate decision taken by Walter Ulbricht, Leader of the SED, so that every child would be able to remember it, just like the days of the year. In fact the tower's summit today is 368m.

The Brandenburg Gate is one of Berlin's most important monuments – a landmark and symbol all in one with over two hundred years of history. A former symbol of the divided city, it drew visitors who used to climb an observation platform in order to get a glimpse of the world behind the Iron Curtain, on the other side of the barren "death-strip" which separated East from West Berlin, geographically and politically. It was here that on June 12, 1987, Ronald Regan issued his stern command to his cold war adversary admonishing him with the words: "Mr. Gorbachov – tear down this wall!". The speech delivered to West Berliners was also audible on the east side of the Gate and echoed President von Weizsacker’s words which translate as: "The German question is open as long as the Brandenburg Gate is closed." it is 20 minutes by car and 38 minutes by transportation

Checkpoint Charlie, along with Glienicker Brücke (Glienicke Bridge) was the best known border crossing during the Cold War. The sign, which became a symbol of the division of Cold War Berlin and read like a dire warning to those about to venture beyond the Wall – "YOU ARE LEAVING THE AMERICAN SECTOR" – in English, Russian, French and German - stood here. It is today an iconic marker of territorial boundary and political division. Until the fall of the Berlin Wall on November 9, 1989, it signified the border between West and East, Capitalism and Communism, freedom and confinement.

Crown Prince's Palace (Kronprinzenpalais) next to the Staatsoper, located along Unter den Linden boulevard overlooking Bebelplatz and the adjacent Princesses' Palace (Prinzessinnenpalais) are impressive town palaces, the former residences of Hohenzollern royal family members. The Prince's Palace was converted from a townhouse by Philip Gerlach in 1732, to become a town palace for Crown Prince Friedrich, the future Friedrich the Great (1740-1786). It remained a royal residence until 1918 when the Hohenzollern dynasty came to an end. The Crown Princesses' Palace – today's Opera Café immediately to the right of the Staatsoper had been built for the daughters of Friedrich Wilhelm III (1797-1840) in 1811 with an extension, the attractive covered bridge, connecting it to the Princes' Palace. The present building is the 1969 reconstruction by Richard Paulick.

It is one of the most famous streets in the world, the lifeline of the City West and shopping mile number one in Berlin: the 3.5 kilometer boulevard Kurfürstendamm between Breitscheidplatz and Halensee.
The Gedächtniskirche or Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church is the symbolic centre of West Berlin, an anti-war memorial to peace and reconciliation. Following allied bombing during WWII, the original west Tower has remained standing as a ruin and is hauntingly named the "hollow tooth" as it is literally an empty husk. Immediately recognizable and located on the Breitscheidplatz at the start of the busy shopping district which includes Tauentzienstraße and Ku'damm, this is the only building on the square which was spared by the bombing and deliberately preserved as a part ruin.

In addition to leisure facilities such as cinemas, bowling alleys, event arenas, restaurants and shops, the new Mercedes-Platz near river Spree boasts offices and hotels. Green outdoor areas and fountains contrast nicely with the surrounding buildings and invite visitors to relax in the open air. Thanks to its central location in Friedrichshain, a visit to Mercedes-Platz is easily done. The square can be reached by bus, train and even by boat. Even though promenaders and shopping enthusiasts have lots to see and do already near East Side Gallery, Mercedes-Platz is not yet complete. By 2021, a 140 metre high office tower will be built - the East Side Tower.

The Frankfurter Tor ("Frankfurt Gate") is a large square in the inner-city Friedrichshain locality of Berlin. It is situated in the center of the district, at the intersection of Karl-Marx-Allee and Frankfurter Allee (the eastbound federal highways No. 1 and No. 5) with the Warschauer Straße and Petersburger Straße ring road (federal highway No. 96a). The Frankfurter Tor station, on the city's U-Bahn line U 5, is located under the square. The previously unnamed square received the name “Frankfurter Tor” on 8 November 1957 in the course of its reconstruction after World War II. The designation recalls both the historic city gate of the Berlin Customs Wall, providing access to the road to the city of Frankfurt (Oder), as well as two former street names, Große Frankfurter Straße and Frankfurter Allee, for the Wilhelmine east–west axis of the major intersection at this location. The original location of the gate, however, was approximately 850 metres (2,790 ft) west of today’s Frankfurter Tor intersection, near Weberwiese station. The densely built-up area was largely destroyed by the bombing of Berlin in World War II and the Battle of Berlin in 1945.
