Teufelsberg: Cold War reminder with a view
Near the forest of Grunewald lies this hill built from World War II rubble. Home during the Cold War to an American and British spy station. Today it’s abandoned, covered with graffiti and (as Berlin’s highest hill) provides an uniquely beautiful view over the city, taking in the vast forest and far beyond it, the Berliner Dom and TV Tower. Go there with your host and let them give you all the historical insights about the place.
For a while after reunification there was talk of building an apartment complex here, yet when you admire the views and the aging, derelict symbol of West Berlin’s past, it just seems perfect as it is.
The romantic Schloss Charlottenburg
Much of this Berlin baroque palace was touched by the World War II, and while not all of the interior has been fully restored, this is one of the more romantic sites for sightseeing in Berlin. This is mostly due to the vast park-gardens and lake. Add a visit here on your list of things to do in Berlin.
These grounds were built by Prussian king Frederick I for his wife Sophie Charlotte (hence the name of the place and district!) and is well worth a visit by lovebirds (or anyone else). In December it turns into a winter wonderland as one of the most magical of the Berlin Christmas markets.
