1- East Side Gallery
Most amazing graffiti I have ever seen in my life – really piece of art on a wall
One of the touristy things that once you see it , and you are like YES! this is so worth it.
Check out my few snippets – actually a lot but hard to choose my favorites!
2- BradenBurg Gate
its one of the must do list in Berlin, I highly recommend going around sunset or night, less tourists and photos turn out amazing! The view is also very very beautiful around that time!
3- OberBaum Bridge
4- Tier Garten and Holocaust Memorial
You don’t have to be an activist or into history much in order to feel the story or the strong vibes in this memorial, Just by walking there, you start to feel and understand the stories of the jewish victims of the holocaust, Its really indescribable piece of art really!
5- The stumbling stones
Walking around Berlin is like walking in a history book.
walking in the streets and seeing the stumbling stone (they are brass stumbling stones that has the name of the missing european jews who left their home and gone missing)- Here lived, Deported and murdered.
there are many conflicting opinions about it, yet I firmly believe in the importance of it. it doesn’t only represent the missing jews of the Holocaust, it also represent any outcasted members of the society but mainly It is for the Holocaust victims.

Everywhere! just walking around this city you would be overwhelmed with art specially if you are street art fan!
7- Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church
It was badly damaged in bombing raid in 1943, Now it is rebuilt (more history here)
However in my sense 🙂 it is so beautiful to see how damaged art can still remain beautiful, even the ceiling is all sealer together with the cracks, it is a full resemblance of Kintsugi (the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum)
8- Visit Kreuzberg’s – The Turkish Neighborhood to have turkish food and check out the markets of course!
