Once the grand embodiment of Prussian power, Berlin went on to become the epicenter of counterculture in the 1920s, then the capital of the infamous Third Reich, and eventually the tragically divided emblem of the Cold War, only to re-emerge as a great capital following German reunification. Through it all, Berlin was—and is—a place of architectural ambition and experimentation. Today, it is among the most exciting cities in the world, peppered with innovative, often daring buildings that illuminate its rich history. Take fascinating behind-the-scenes tours of remarkable museums including Altes Museum, James-Simon-Galerie, and Pergamon Museum. From the Brandenburg Gate to DZ Bank to the Nordic Embassies complex, trace the city’s complex architectural legacy, from the neoclassical grandeur of the past to the cutting-edge modernism that defines contemporary Berlin.
