The German capital of Berlin is not only a historical city, but a city that intertwines the contemporary with the past. Historical landmarks which represent the ruins of Germany’s tainted past are easy to come across in the city, and many have now undergone a transformation. The historic Berlin wall is a symbol of the division that once split the country, however, the contemporary artwork which now covers the wall shows the barriers which have been broken. Other sights across Berlin act as a constant reminder of unification, like the Brandenburg Gate. Berlin also has a thriving art scene which isn’t only spotted on the city’s well-known wall. A Berlin city break is packed full of history, and you can’t visit without seeing the capital’s Holocaust memorial, which is a strong reminder of its past.
