Wachturm Typ BT-11 im ehemaligen Todesstreifen
Watchtower at Potsdamer Platz

The watchtower, type BT-11, in the former death strip is located directly behind the museum. Due to construction work, however, it was moved by a few meters and is thus no longer at it‘s original location.

Holocaust Mahnmal
Holocaust Memorial

The Holocaust Memorial commemorates the darkest chapter of German history. Germany's central memorial of the Holocaust documents the persecution and massacre of the European Jews during the Third Reich. The gray color of the 2711 pillars is in remembrance of the ashes of those who were burnt alive. The barely noticeable inclination of the pillars and the impression of a fluctuating floor caused by the difference in height are intended to create a sense of insecurity. „It is impossible to represent the extend and scale of the Holocaust.“ (Architect Peter Eisenmann)

Brandenburg Gate
Brandenburg Gate

The Brandenburger Gate is only a 10-minute walk from our museum "Dalí -  Die Austellung am Potsdamer Platz". It is one of the landmarks of Berlin that every Berlin visitor should have seen.

Topograhie des Terrors
Topography of Terror

Berlin is rich in history, and not always was it a glorious time. The Topography of Terror provides an insight into the darkest facets of the city.

Berliner Philharmonie
Berliner Philharmonie

The Philharmonie as part of the Kulturforum has been the musical center and concert hall of Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra for more than 50 years. Sitting on the outskirts of West Berlin before the reunification, it is now located right in the heart of the city. The unusual architechture of the architect Hans Scharoun makes this building a particularity that every Berlin visitor should have seen.

Checkpoint Charlie
Checkpoint Charlie

Between 1961 and 1990, Checkpoint Charlie used to be one of  the most famous border crossings in the world. Today the checkpoint is a striking symbol for the conquered division of the city. Every year, more and more visitors get an impression of the frosty atmosphere of the Cold War. A second glance reveals a supposed paradox: North of Checkpoint Charlie and thus in the former East, you can stroll along the boulevard Friedrichstraße, whereas the former Western part has barely developed at all. The expensive shops and stores are all to be found in what used to be the „poor East“.


Tiergarten is the green heart of Berlin and an oasis of relaxation. Strolling through the park you will come across world famous as well as less known sights. You can not miss the Siegessäule (Column of Victory): originally a part of Königsplatz (today Platz der Republik), the column with the Goddess of Victory on the very top. The various statues as well as the artistically designed gardens like the Garden of Roses, the English Garden or Luisen Island are rather hidden treasures.

Reichstag (Parliament in Berlin)

The Reichstag has been the seat of the German Bundestag (Federal Republic of Germany) since 1999 and stands for the political changes, upheavals and dramatic events in 20th-century Germany. In 1894, after ten years of construction, the building was completed in the style of a historicism popular at the end of the 19th century. The eclectic mix of Renaissance, Baroque and Classicism was badly damaged during the Second World War. From 1991 to 1998, the building was restored by British architect Sir Norman Foster and fitted with a spectacular, walk-in glass dome.
