At the time, the largest office building in Europe, and, as with most Nazi architecture, designed to intimidate, as well as impress. At the time, it formed a large part of the government district containing the Nazi government. I am surprised that it survived the...More

Considering how destructive the Allied bombing of Berlin was during the war it is remarkable that this building somehow survived intact. It is one of the few building built during the Nazi era which survives today, and perhaps that is why it is worth a...More

Build in the mid 1930's this is a somber looking building, which somehow managed to survive the massive bombing of Berlin and the Soviet occupation. There were no tours of the building available during our visit to Berlin.

Built in 1935-1936, the now Ministry of Finance building, used to be the Aviation Ministry office led by Hitler's second in command, Hermann Goering. It was one of the few Nazi buildings that survived the 1944-1945 extensive bombing by the Allied Forces. After the 2nd...More

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
