Berlin has become one of the most transformed, rehabilitated and dynamic cities of the modern era. Remnants of the old Berlin persist of course, and these sites are indicated on the STREETWISE® map of Berlin. Parts of the Berlin Wall stand as testimony to its dreary past; Museum Island exists with some of the most important museums in Europe. The infamous Brandenburger Tor stands proudly, ironically in front of the US Embassy. Then there's the bombed out Kaiser Wilhelm Gedächtniskirche. The addition of the new Holocaust Museum has become a reason to visit in itself. The real Berlin is contemporary and stylish, its aesthetics driven more by artists, architects and chefs than by bureaucrats. If you are into contemporary architecture, walking Berlin will reward you because of the many new buildings and older modernist Bauhaus structures spread throughout the city.
The STREETWISE® Map Berlin enables you to experience all the excitement and sizzle Berlin, Germany has to offer. The avant garde capital of Europe these days is right here.
