This is cool too. In the reception of the Radisson Hotel, near Sea Life. An aquarium as high as the lobby! And a lift is going thru it. It's called AquaDom, look for google on it.

I would certainly go with the Reichstag, especially if you have seen some pictures and read about it before visiting - it's certainly one of the most historic places in modern history, and the view form the glass dome is great!

Another must is passing under Brandenburger Tor and maybe going for a stroll in Tiergarden..

And ofcause the the new Potzdammer Platz



And don't forget to eat some apple strudel and drink some weissbier - but not at the same time ofcause ;)

I'm afraid he'll have a hard time searching for Apfelstrudl (or Apfelstrudel) in Berlin. He better come to Vienna if this is his aim.
I agree about the beer, though... :)

Schöneberg is a particularly lively quarter you might want to visit if you are into that kind of stuff. The view from the TV tower is also not to be missed. If you are a commieblock lover, you'll be treated to some of the most impressive ones I've ever stumbled across.

I know Berlin only from before the reunion - and it was a very cool and extremly interesting city (I was in both parts). Potsdammer Platz was only wasteland by then... but for sure a must-see nowadays: something to love or hate ;)

Don't know if it's true but I heard Berlin is not anymore that cool place it used to be 20 years ago and much less interesting. But I can't judge it.

- Tiergarten
- Unter den Linden/Brandenburger Tor/Reichstag
- Museumsinsel
- Botanischer Garten
- Philharmonie
- Gropiushaus
- Gendarmenmarkt
- If there is still something left of the Wall
- Alexanderplatz
- Kreuzberg
- Gedächtniskirche/Ku'damm
- Holocaust Monument

Don't forget the quarter Prenzlauer Berg. You will find bohemian lifestyle and some unusual shops there. Get out at Eberswalder Straße (line U2).
