Three days, both topics - a model itinerary

The third day gives us the opportunity to go beyond the two-days itinerary and reach interesting and meaningful locations off the beaten track.

In Jewish terms, our options include:
  • Daniel Libeskind's Jewish Museum
  • The Train Wagon monument and the "Wall of Flames", Berlin’s first attempt to address the past artistically by using the Nazi deportation records
  • The Empty Benches memorial for Kreuzberg's old synagogue, designed like the textual flow of a Talmud page
  • The Jewish cemetery at Schönhauser Allee (where the impressionist painter Max Liebermann is buried)
  • The Jewish cemetery in Weissensee (Europe's largest still active Jewish cemetery with very interesting architecture)
  • The House of the Wannsee Conference (the guides are asked to do the guidance outside, before going in - but the place is very significant)
And if you'd like to go deeper into the German story, we recommend a journey into Communist life in East-Berlin:
  • Bernauer Straße - the street that was torn apart and became the most known symbol of the German tragedy, but also the scene of some legendary escapes
  • Treptower Park – the largest Soviet war & victory memorial outside of the USSR, with which the empire left its mark on the city for all ages (more or less). It was designed by the Jewish architect Yakov Belopolsky.
  • Karl-Marx-Allee, formerly known as “Stalin’s avenue” - the showcase boulevard of German communism, now the longest architectural monument in Europe(!), where we'll visit an exhibition about everyday life in East-Berlin
  • The famous Ghost Stations underneath the city, an absurdity of Berlin’s divided subway system
  • An open-air reconstruction of the infamous “Death Strip”, where the communist soldiers shot their own countrymen
