Our top picks to see in Berlin
Extend your business trip into a city break and visit the top sites Berlin has to offer. Here are just some of the many sights you can see in this capital steeped in history.
The Reichstag was originally completed in 1894 where the Neo-Renaissance palace served as the home of the German Empire's Imperial Diet until it burned in 1933. It underwent a 10-year reconstruction and finally became the home of the German Parliament in 1999. Now visitors can gain a birds-eye view of the city by walking up the spiralling dome rising above the older building. Be advised! You will need to book in advance as this is a very popular sight.
The Brandenburg Gate
As one of Berlin's most famous historic landmarks, once a symbol of a divided nation and now a symbol of unity and peace should undoubtedly be on your top free things to do during your stay. This Neoclassical gate was commissioned by King Frederick Wilhelm II in 1788, and its design was inspired by the Propylaea in Athens' Acropolis.
Berliner Fernsehturm: Berlin's Television Tower
Opening in 1970, the 368-meter-tall tower celebrates it's 50th anniversary this year! Instantly recognisable from miles around, you can visit the observation deck or book a reservation at the revolving restaurant, both of which boast unrivalled views of the city.

Perched above the parking garage of the Arcaden shopping centre in Neukölln, Klunkerkranich is in a somewhat unlikely location. Take the mall’s elevators to the highest floor and walk up the car ramps, and you’ll be welcomed by a beautiful garden bar that overlooks the entire city. This is a popular spot to come and watch the sunset over the skyline with a beer in hand. As the night rolls in, the party begins with live DJs and plenty of room for dancing.
Checkpoint Charlie was not only an important Cold War site but also witnessed numerous attempts to escape from East Berlin. An open-air exhibition on the corner of Schützenstraße and Zimmerstraße tells the story of those that failed and those that succeeded. An installation by the artist Frank Thiel and a commemorative plate also mark the memorial.
German Museum of Technology
The must-see German Museum of Technology was established in 1983 to showcase and celebrate Germany's industrial and technological prowess. There are plenty of vehicles and aircraft on display, including a number of preserved steam engines dating back as far as 1843. Other highlights include riding in a vintage 1930s train from the museum to its locomotive depot on the weekends.
