Orangery Palace

Commissioned by Friedrich Wilhelm IV, Orangery Palace was built between 1851 and 1864. Construction of this mighty edifice started after the initial blueprint submitted by Friedrich Wilhelm IV. Noted architects Ludwig Ferdinand Hesse and Friedrich August Stuler were brought on board to erect the palace as per Friedrich's designs. Orangery Palace features a High Renaissance architectural style. It consists of servants' apartments, royal halls, marble statues and two other halls to keep potted plants.

Park Sanssouci

Park Sanssouci is a wonderful historic park in the city of Potsdam, which lies 30 minutes from Berlin. It is named after the summer palace built by Frederick the Great and was later extended by Frederick William IV. Sans soucis literally means "without worries," and a day in this park will surely allow you to unwind. Sanssouci and its buildings are often referred to as the Versailles of Germany. Besides the summer palace the park also hosts several other beautiful buildings like Schloss Charlottenhof, Neues Palais, Chinesische Haus and a collection of statues in the garden. The park and its palaces are a World Heritage Site protected by UNESCO. For more information on what the park has to offer, please visit the website.

Reichstag

Constructed between 1884 and 1894, the imposing Reichstag stands witness to Germany's past and present. It was established as a parliamentary house for the German Empire under Otto von Bismarck and has since seen more than a century of European history unfurl. After World War II, the Reichstag was neglected until the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, at which time, work began on returning the building to its original purpose. This new attention led to such additions as the iconic glass dome, which was added by British architect Sir Norman Foster. Today, visitors can climb up to the dome and enjoy panoramic views of brilliant Berlin from the terrace.

Museum Island

Museum Island is located on the northern half of a historically-significant island in the Spree River that runs through Berlin. The island takes its name from the five Berlin State Museums that reside in the area - the Altes Museum, the Bode Museum, the Alte Nationalgalerie, the Neues Museum, and the Pergamon Museum. Museum Island was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999. The island's first museum was erected in 1797, and the whole area was designated specifically for art and science by King Frederick William IV of Prussia in 1841. An assemblage of spectacular historical monuments, the Museum Island is a stunning heritage hub.

Brandenburg Gate

Germany's most recognizable symbol is not as large as many visitors expect, yet its history is rich and fascinating. Built in 1791, the Brandenburg Gate was modeled on the entrance to the Acropolis in Athens. The Quadriga statue on top of the Gate, designed by sculptor Gottfried Schadow, represents Victoria, the Goddess of Peace, riding a four-horse chariot. This was one of Berlin's original 14 city gates, yet the only remaining evidence of the other gates are the names of underground stations such as Kottbusser Tor and Schlesisches Tor. The Brandenburg Gate and Pariser Platz have played center stage to numerous turbulent historical events. The south wing houses a tourist information office.

Berlin Cathedral

Throughout the centuries, many churches have stood on the location of the current Berliner Dom. The first one was erected in 1465 for the reigning royal family, the Hohenzollern, and was little more than a chapel at that time. In 1747, it was replaced by a Baroque cathedral designed by Johann Boumann, before being transformed once again in 1822 by Karl Friedrich Schinkel. Today's Dom was built between 1894 and 1905 during King Wilhelm II's reign. Almost completely destroyed in World War II, the Berliner Dom remained a ruin until restoration work finally began in 1973. Some of the cathedral's highlights include the mosaics covering the cupola, the crypt, the altar and the altar windows. The Dom also enshrines over 80 members of the Hohenzollern family. Those visiting must take a look at the Sauer organ within the cathedral, one of the largest in Germany, and take in the views from the roof promenade.
