Do you want to discover Berlin 360°? Then you’re in just the right place at the TV tower. From 203 and 207 metres high you can look out over the entire city with its large number of tourist attractions: you can see the Reichstag (Parliament building), the Brandenburg Gate and the Main Railway Station from here, as well as the Olympic Stadium, the Museum Island (Museumsinsel) and the Potsdam Square (Potsdamer Platz). With almost 1.2 million visitors every year, the Berlin TV tower is one of the most popular attractions for tourists in Berlin. If you are curious to find out what views await you, then please click on the 360° Panorama. But this virtual view cannot compare with the live-experience at the TV tower!

Experience the history of Berlin from an unconventional perspective! Since 1999, the Berlin Underworlds Association has been offering regular tours into some of the most important underground structures in the city. The majority of the tours are in or near the Gesundbrunnen station in the north of central Berlin.



Excursion 2: Berlin Wall Museum

Scheduled: Wednesday afternoon

The Museum Haus am Checkpoint Charlie is a museum like no other; from its humble beginnings in October 1962 as a two-and-a-half room display about the newly erected Berlin Wall, the museum has evolved into a more than 2000 m² exhibition that explores not only the history of the Berlin Wall and the stories of those affected by it, but also looks at the challenges facing us today as we struggle for worldwide recognition of human rights and freedom. Here you can discover objects used to escape over, under, and through the Berlin Wall, and read the stories of those escapees who risked their lives to win their freedom. We also remember and thus keep alive the memory of others who died in the attempt – you can be part of this important work.

In the new exhibition you can trace the history of movements promoting human rights from 1800 onwards, and learn about areas of our world today where the struggle continues.
