Top places to see in Berlin
  • Reichstag

    Since 1872, the Reichstag has been the parliamentary building for Germany. It was here that Berliners celebrated the reunificiation of the country in 1990. In 1999, a magnificent dome was added to Reichstag.

  • Alexanderplatz

    Alexanderplatz is a large public square and transportation intersection in the central Mitte district, near the Fernsehturm.

  • Brandenburger Tor

    When it was originally constructed in the 17th century, the Brandenburger Tor symbolized peace. During the 1960s, it separated East and West Berlin and signified Germany's division. After the Wall fell in 1989, the Branderburger Tor became the symbol of a unified Germany. 

  • Berlin Wall

    The 1960s marked the peak of the Cold War, and the Berlin Wall was the ultimate symbol of separate Germany. East Berliners could not travel to the West, or their punishment could be death. In 1989, the Wall finally came down, and Berliners celebrated throughout the city.

Top places to see in Freiburg
  • Schlossberg

    An entire day can be devoted to exploring Schlossberg.  Originally a French fortress, Schlossberg today is a serene and beautiful area to climb, relax, eat, or drink in the famous beer garden. The Schlossberg tower was built in 1997, and allows for beautiful views 1300 feet above the city.

  • Münster Cathedral

    The Münster is a magnificent late Romanesque and Gothic cathedral that rises 116m over the city. Intricate stained glass, hundreds of candles, and a depiction of the Last Supper are just a few of the treasures inside.

  • Black Forest

    Expanding to the east of Freiburg, the famous Black Forest is home to quaint, fairy-tale villages and a wealth of hiking trails and slopes for winter skiing.

  • Sustainable Communities

    Sustainability and green technology are important parts of Freiburg's culture and have inspired several sustainable communities in the city, including the innovative Vauban neighborhood and the solar estate of Schlierberg.

    Located in the former St. Augustine church, the Augustinermuseum holds more art than any other museum in Freiburg. Some of the objects are older than 1000 years. The original statues from the Munster Cathedral are housed in Augustinermuseum.
