Our own list of the best Berlin books everybody needs to have as a way to see and understand the city a little better. We bought these books over the years we have been here, and we promise you they are worth every penny.
The Berlin Wall Memorial, also known in German as Gedenkstätte Berliner Mauer, is a mix of monuments and museums commemorating the city’s division by the Berlin Wall and the people who died because of it. And we consider it to be the best place to learn about the wall and how it affected the city and the entire continent.
On the outskirts of Berlin, where Neukölln and Schönefeld meet, there is a hill with one of the city’s best views. Called the Skypoint in Schönefeld, this manufactured structure is built over trash, and we took our drone there in June 2021 to capture its beauty.
Berlin has a vast transport network composed of S-Bahn and U-Bahn lines that cover almost 500 km of tracks across the city. And the town used to have even more tracks, but due to political divisions, world wars and economic problems, some of those tracks were abandoned. One of those is known as Friedhofsbahn, and it used to connect Berlin-Wannsee to Stahnsdorf.
