Stumbled upon this somber Jewish cemetery where Moses Mendelssohn is buried. It's a place of quiet solitude. There is some signage in several languages dictating the history, including the destruction by the national socialists in 1943. A reminder of the rich Jewish history in Berlin.

The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
