Top 5 travel tips
The foundation stone of St. Hedwig's Cathedral was laid in July 1747, but the building has been rebuilt and extended several times over the last centuries. Today you can admire some interesting art treasures inside the church, such as the three tapestries with biblical motifs. Also absolutely worth seeing are the eight small chapels in the lower church, whose window pictures were created by Karl Clobes.2. Take a look at the Crown Prince's palace
At the beginning of the street "Unter den Linden" you will find the Kronprinzenpalais, built in late classicist style. For many years it served the Prussian ruling house as a city domicile. Due to the complete destruction of the building during the Second World War, however, the building is still a very impressive replica in which exhibitions are presented and cultural events held today.3. Discover the landmark and the history of the city
Visit the Brandenburg Gate on Pariser Platz, which was built in the 18th century on behalf of King Frederick William II. In former times it served as a triumphal gate to the imperial capital, later as a symbol for the division of Berlin and the nation after the Second World War. The gate is 65.5 metres wide and 26 metres high. The architectural style is early classicist. The Quadriga with the goddess of victory Gottfried Schadows is enthroned at the very top.4.
