Really atmospheric and a reminder of a Nazi past. An arrestingly bombastic and impressive sight. So much around it to see. Quite a busy street for traffic but worth seeing.

Built in 1935, the Finance Ministry building is a rare, large, survivor of wartime era architecture. The building resembles Tempelhof airport and was designed by the same architect, Ernst Sagebiel. It was the Air Ministry when built. Now called the Detlev-Rohwedder Haus in honour of...More

Build in the mid 1930's this is a somber looking building, which somehow managed to survive the massive bombing of Berlin and the Soviet occupation. There were no tours of the building available during our visit to Berlin.

Walked past this building on way to house of terrors. Although it is a big building its grey and intimidating features go well with its previous history. That said if you closely you can see quite clearly where the scars of the war have been...More

Passed by the building on my way from the Brandenburg Gate to the Topographie of Terror and Checkpoint Charlie. Despite its rich past, the building was a poor sight for me overall, not much to visit or to look at.

Worth a stop in a building of the German government, which currently houses the Ministry of Finance (Bundesministerium der Finanzen). This construction despite strong bombing, survived intact to the second world war. One possible explanation is that in the midst of an entire town destroyed,...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
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The

between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
