On a beautiful day if in the area, it is worth walking through the park to see the statues of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, authors of the Communist Manifesto. Be sure to spend a few minutes viewing the background relief wall showing scenes from...More

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the

of some significant transformations, as well. The
