Berlim Gendarmenmarkt

Art, Architecture and Music
The rectangular shape of "Gendarmenmarkt" shows the influence of neoclassical architecture in Berlin, the square is regarded by some as the most spectacular architectural ensemble in the city and by others as the most beautiful in Germany. Gendarmenmarkt features two cathedrals with a similar architectural profile: the German Cathedral and the French Cathedral which only differ by a few decorative details. Between the two churches, situated in the middle of the square, is the Concert House "Konzerthaus", designed by Karl Friedrich Schinkel (1781-1841), one of Prussia's most prominent architects. The statue in front of the Konzerthaus honours German poet Friedrich Schiller (1759–1805), who is known for writing the lyrics of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, the "Ode to Joy", which has become the official anthem of the European Union. Gendarmenmarkt is an architectural treasure of art and beauty.

Brandenburg Gate

Portão de Brandenburgo

The Brandenburg Gate ("Brandenburger Tor" in German)
The Brandenburg Gate, built by Carl G. Langhans in 1791, is Germany's national symbol and the most famous landmark of Berlin. The statue at the top of the gate, a chariot drawn by four horses, is called "Quadriga" and was created by Prussian sculptor Johann Gottfried Schadow in 1793. The sandstone construction, which is 20 meters high, 65 meters wide, and 11 meters deep, is located at the western side of Pariser Platz, at the end of the avenue "Unter den Linden", Berlin's most famous boulevard.
The gate has been the backdrop for many historic events. Napoleon was the first to use the gate for a victory parade. In 1806, he defeated Prussia and celebrated his occupation of Berlin with a triumphal procession at the Brandenburg Gate. He also took the quadriga to Paris where it remained until Prussian troops occupied Paris in 1814 and brought the statue back to Berlin.
On January 30, 1933, the day of Adolf Hitler's ascent to power in Germany, thousands of SS members and combatants of other paramilitary Nazi organisations marched in a torchlight rally through the gate.
On June 12, 1987, on the western side of the gate, US President Ronald Reagan delivered his speech with the famous call on the then Russian leader: "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!"

CHARLOTTENBURG PALACE

Berlim Charlottenburg

The construction of Charlottenburg Palace (Schloss Charlottenburg, in German) was commissioned by Princess Charlotte, wife of Frederick III, then Elector of Brandenburg, and built between 1695 and 1699 by architect Johann Arnold Nering. After the coronation of Frederick III as Frederick I, now the first King of Prussia, Schloss Charlottenburg was renovated and extended by Johann Friedrich Eosander, turning it into an imposing palace of Prussian style and the official summer residence of the royal family.
Charlottenburg Palace was badly damaged in World War II and the reconstruction in 1950 was one of the most challenging projects in postwar West Berlin.

Reichstag (the German Parliament)

Reichstag (a sede do parlamento alemão)

The Reichstag in Berlin is the most visited parliament building in the world. It owes its Guinness World Record title to the glass dome which offers a breathtaking panoramic view of Berlin.
Reichstag is the lower house of Germany's national legislature. Inaugurated in 1894, the building suffered severe damage in World War II and was reconstructed in the 1960s, however, without its dome. British architect Lord Norman Foster designed the new steel-and-glass dome which surrounds a ramp with a spiral observation deck.
A visit to the German Parliament (known colloquially as "Reichstag", but the official name is "Deutscher Bundestag") is an almost mandatory commitment to millions of national and international visitors who come to Berlin each year. It is the heart of the German democracy and the grandiose main entrance portal features the political motto "Dem Deutschen Volke" – "to the German people". The German Parliament is an open house for all people and admission is free, however, registration is required.

Checkpoint Charlie and BERLIN WALL MUSEUM

Checkpoint Charlie_Berlin, Events & Tours

Checkpoint Charlie - Ground Zero of the Cold War
Checkpoint Charlie was the most famous crossing point between East and West Berlin during the time of Germany's division. Named after the third letter of the NATO phonetic alphabet (Alfa, Bravo, Charlie, Delta etc), and reserved for military personnel, diplomats and foreigners, Checkpoint Charlie was one of eight crossing points of the divided city. However, in 1961, this site was the scene of a defining moment in postwar world history when American and Russian tanks faced each other there with this standoff almost triggering the Third World War.
Today, Checkpoint Charlie is a charismatic symbol of the Cold War.

The Wall Museum
Discover the history of the Cold War and the Berlin Wall and how people tried to escape from the East to the West. The museum has many exhibits, artifacts and displays of how people fled from former communist Germany: see photos with captions in English and German, footage, videos, self built small airplanes, loud speakers prepared to hide a woman, a car showing how to escape in a fake fuel tank, a homemade hot air balloon used by two families for a successful flight.

Don't be misled by the outward appearance of the building and the small entrance: the museum is much larger than it looks from outside. It is built in 3 levels with ground floor, first and second floor. People with disabilities will have difficulty getting to the upper level because there is no elevator. Although the exhibition needs better curation, it is still a valuable source of historical postwar information.

Haus am Checkpoint Charlie, Friedrichstrasse 43-45, 10969 Berlin, Tel: +49 30 253 7250, E-mail: info@mauermuseum.de.
Daily 9:00 - 22:00.

Potsdamer Platz (Berlin's new center)

Potsdamer Platz (o bairro mais 
            moderno do novo centro)

The rise, fall and renaissance of a legendary square
Before World War II, Potsdamer Platz was the busiest traffic hub in Europe and, at the same time, the city's entertainment district with dance halls, cabarets, cinemas, theaters, casinos, night clubs, bars, restaurants and hotels. This was Berlin's favourite spot for shopping, dining and entertaining. Much to the disgust of the Nazis, American jazz musicians and burlesque dancers like Josephine Baker, one of the most famous celebrities to personify the Golden Twenties, performed regularly in one of the numerous venues, these were shows with a display of extravaganza, glitz and glamour hitherto unknown to Germans in the Weimar Republic.

The square was completely destroyed in World War II and left as an urban desert and waste land between East and West Berlin during the years of division, however, after the fall of the Berlin Wall, it had become a magnet for international investors and was subsequently rebuilt from scratch. Today, it is the new center of the city and one of Berlin's most popular destinations.

Berlin's reunification-induced and record-breaking construction boom is still in full swing with many large-scale projects underway including the reconstruction of the Berlin City Palace and Leipziger Platz, the square next to Potsdamer Platz where "Mall of Berlin" opened, one of Germany's largest shopping malls with more than 300 stores turning this area into the commercial hub of the shopping-loving city of Berlin. There is no evidence of an end to this boom in sight, on the contrary, tourism is still growing and many new shops and hotels are to come in the next few years. "Mall of Berlin" plans an expansion of its sales area to house more than 500 stores in the near future.

New Synagogue (Neue Synagoge)

Nova Sinagoga (Neue Synagoge)

It is an important symbol of Jewish religious and cultural life in Berlin. Built in 1857 in Moorish-Byzantine style, the synagogue was partly burned down on 9 November 1938, the "Crystal Night", also called Night of Broken Glass, when the Nazis persecuted, attacked and killed Jews, shattered windows, ransacked and looted Jewish shops. During the last days of World War II, the building was bombed and suffered serious damage. Its reconstruction was carried out in the 1980s and 1990s. At the moment, this architectural highlight also houses the "Centrum Judaicum", a Jewish cultural center and museum with many outstanding exhibits. The golden dome, which can be seen from various parts of the city, has become a landmark symbol of the borough of Berlin Mitte.

Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

Memorial às vítimas do Holocausto

Opened in May 2005, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe is a project designed by American architect Peter Eisenman. 2,711 concrete blocks of distinct heights are distributed in rows within the 19,073 m² space between the Brandenburg Gate and Potsdamer Platz, very close to the area of the Third Reich Chancellery and the bunker where Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun committed suicide.
