We love Berlin, and it’s always great to be back. On our most recent visit, we spent most of our time housesitting in the outskirts and drinking beer in beer gardens with friends. However, we still found time to see some of the city’s most famous monuments, like the Reichstag, the Brandenburg Gate, and the Jewish Holocaust memorial.
The Jewish holocaust memorial in the centre of Berlin commemorates the millions of Jewish people killed during World War Two. It's one of many memorials to different groups of people who were targeted in the holocaust, such as Hitler's political opponents, homosexuals, and the Roma and Sinti peoples (gypsies). It's a moving place.
Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church
A highlight of our tour around West Berlin with Context Travel was a visit to the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church. The original church was partially damaged during a bombing raid in 1943 and its jagged tower still stands as a memorial. A new church was built around the ruins, and this stunning stained glass wall is a feature of the main worship room.
