  • Walk along Unter Den Linden, the grand central boulevard in the Mitte district.Visit the Neues Museum (New Museum), finished in 1859 according to plans by Friedrich August Stüler, a student of Schinkel.

  • The Holocaust Memorial, the Monument to the Murdered Jews of Europe. Designed by architect Peter Eisenman, this undulating field of reflection with thousands of concrete dark gray slabs forms a gentle wave, ankle-high in some places, designed to give visitors a sense of groundlessness and of a loss of orientation; the memorial also includes a subterranean information center at the edge of the site which houses a permanent exhibition dedicated to the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust.
