At Tauentzienstrasse, not far from KaDeWe Department Store and the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, the steel and concrete monumental structure will immediately draw your attention. The sculpture, by artists Brigitte Matschinsky-Denninghoff and Martin Matschinsky, brings back sad memories of German history - the Berlin Wall...More

This sculpture is very symbolic to the broken chain/link between East and West Berlin due to the Berlin Wall being erected. It is made with steel pipes and stands a few meters tall not too far from the KdeWet shopping centre. If one is in...More

If you are nearby check it out but do not go out of your way to see it. Modern art is not my thing and I think this falls into that category.

Literally a few minutes walk from the Crowne Plaza hotel. This statue symbolizes the divided East and West Berlin of the past. Nice to see the city as one again.

The Berlin Sculpture is rather unique in that it looks like a couple of giant pieces of spaghetti fighting. If you are nearby, it would be fun to see, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it.

A cool sculpture with a good location. Worth having a look at if you're nearby, wouldn't travel for it.

Other than the juxtaposition of this sculpture to the nearby bombed-out church, this site has little to offer non modern art fans.

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here
you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades
and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone
streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop
