A view from inside the soaring Sony Center. Completed in 2000, the complex is a mix of shops, restaurants, accommodations, offices, cinemas and more.
The historic Reichstag building houses Germany's parliament. Opened in 1894, it was severely damaged by a fire in 1933 and wasn't fully restored until 1999 by renowned architect Norman Foster. Today, it is once again the meeting place for Bundestag, the modern German parliament.
A sculpture commemorates the Kindertransport, a campaign to get Jewish children to the United Kingdom during World War II.
The famous forest on Berlin's western edge is the largest green area in the city and is crisscrossed with trails for hikers, bikers and horseback riders.
Berlin Hauptbanhof, or Berlin Central Station, is the city's main train station and fairly new, as it wasn't fully operational until 2006.
A somber view from within the controversial Holocaust Memorial. Designed by architect Peter Eisenman and engineer Buro Happold, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe is nearly 5 acres and is covered with 2,711 concrete slabs arranged in a grid on a sloping field.
The Jewish Museum
The unique facade of the Jewish Museum, which opened in September 2001. The complex is made up of the Old Building, the baroque Collegienhaus, the postmodern Libeskind Building and the Glass Courtyard.
The Brandenburg Gate overlooks Pariser Platz, a square in the center of the city. The former city gate, rebuilt in the late 18th century as a triumphal arch, is one of the most recognized landmarks in Berlin.
The Berlin Wall Museum
Fifteen years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, a private museum rebuilt a 650-foot section close to Checkpoint Charlie, but not in the original location of the wall.
