SIGHTS AND LANDMARKS
The centre of Berlin Mitte is the Alexanderplatz

A visit of Checkpoint Charlie
is also worth including in travel plans. The former military control post was one of the most famous border crossings in Berlin. In the adjacent Wall Museum there are a number of historical artefacts from this era. Due to its striking façade the Berlin City Hall has also become one of the city’s most prominent landmarks. The red brick façade eventually bestowed the name “Red City Hall”
on the building and many visitors are fascinated by the multiple wings with three courtyards. The Berlin City Palace
on the Spree Island has an equally impressive building history and architecture enthusiasts will be enthralled.
