Popular Attractions to See in Berlin

If you have ever visited Berlin, you must be aware of the fact that it is one of the most favorite places of tourists as there are a lot of attractions to see. But for the people who have never been to Berlin before, I would like to suggest names of some places that are worth-seeing and visit to Berlin remains incomplete without visiting them. These places are:

Television Tower

Being the tallest structure in this city, Fernsehturm television tower is a worth-seeing place as it is featured with an observation platform as well as a restaurant that revolves slowly. This tower is 1207 feet high and you have to use an elevator to take you up over 660 feet to see that restaurant and observation platform. This tower provides a chance to the tourists to view beautiful and attractive scenes of city. It has become so popular that restaurant is always filled with people. If you have a plan to visit this tower, I would recommend you to get your table reserved in this restaurant. Base of the tower is surrounded by neon signs and reflections caused by sunlight make a Christian Cross on tower.

Spandau Citadel

It is an ancient fortress that was built in 16th century and now it has become the oldest building in Berlin. A visit to this building provides a chance to know more about its structural history and for your information I would like to tell that guided tours are available to this building on weekends. This beautiful ancient building is located near to River Havel and it is the most charismatic area this city could ever have.

Potsdamer Platz and the New Center

It was one of the busiest squares in Europe in 1990s. With passage of time people started neglecting it but due to recent renovations it has achieved its previous status back as now it is a vibrant area having shops, cafes, bars restaurants and other entertaining attractions. Due to restoration of this square, it has started becoming heart of this city. Here you can visit modern constructions like Sony Centre and Panorama-Point which is situated at the top of tall Kollhof building providing the best views of city. The lift available here is said to be the fastest in Europe.

Schloss Charlottenburg

This palace was originally built 300 years ago but in early 19th century it was restored and some interesting features were added to it. Inside this palace, you will find a fine collection of romantic paintings whereas outside of this palace is surrounded by striking and sophisticated gardens which are truly eye-catching.

Oranienburger Strasse

Before 1989, it was a quiet and bleak street but now it has become a fashionable and busy place as it is full of cafes, bars and other food and drinks outlets. This place is now considered as a lively and vibrant area of Berlin.

These were some of the major and most popular attractions in Berlin which truly deserve to be seen again and again.
