From City West to the Humboldt-Forum is changing Berlin rapidly. Here is a small Sightseeing Tour along the half marathon route.


Actually, this should are already a new slim 150-Meter towers, but how is it going in Berlin, the old post-war dwarves longer than is good for them. The monument-protected Telefunken-house on the West side, 80 meters is low, the measure of all things. New start-up investors: Maybe in 20 years. It is built on the place of course, nevertheless, new lifts and links to the BVG. It may take a while.

In the Western part of Berlin has changed a lot. At the railway station Zoo in a new business house, and in place of the Gloria Palace are also erected new buildings. History of the Ku'damm-Karree. The Knesebeckstraße the great starts the construction site for the project "Prince", which was quarreled for a decade. Behind the boring facades, hidden stages, once the two beads of the theatre architecture – the Ku’dam. You should be saved by public protests and policy initiatives. In the end, they got away, however. In the future, Start to move-ups; Shopping plays no great role any more. But a Theater is to give it back.

memorial for the victims of terrorism

Since December, 2017, the memorial Church, the war memorial, memorial for a further collapse of the civilization. The terrorist attack on Breitscheidplatz has left a permanent trace: An artificial rift that gapes in the concrete steps to the pedestal of the memorial Church. 14 meters long, golden bright, like the stumbling blocks that remind us of the murdered Jews in Berlin. The names of the victims of terrorism.

take a good look: this Is the olle Potse, the dingy little, only of the daily mirror, a winter garden, and the Joseph-Roth - Diele held together Ex-front street West-Berlin? The daily mirror is gone, but the building in the former publisher of the Mercator-stations, galleries, Restaurants and shops are located. Of course there is still the erotic market on the corner of Kurfürstenstraße, and the social Palace further to the South at the Pallas street, but all that is a part of the Berlin mixture. And now wants to pull in fact, Sony Music in the old Commerzbank block of Buelow road, which is already being renovated – this should change the road.

Checkpoint Charlie

The full load of wall horror, you can pick up here, coupled with wall idyll, wall Souvenirs and a wall show – only there is still a serious global historical arrangement of the famous place. This was supposed to be a state-run Museum of the Cold war. The Senate want to entrust to but one Investor, whose funds came from dubious sources. The Prosecutor's office determined, in the meantime, due to the suspicion of money laundering. After appropriate research by this newspaper, the Deal is off now and everything is back to the beginning at Checkpoint Charlie. The wall show can go in the next few years.

Tempo 30

For about a year on the Leipziger Strasse, a new, previously unknown signs combo: Tempo 30 with the addition of "air pollution". Since many motorists take to the head, as in a traffic jam, you are also allowed a speed of 50 kph. The Leipzig is one of Germany's dirtiest streets, the fine dust and nitrogen dioxide measurements have shown. Tempo 30 to reduce the pollutants, but not enough. So here is Berlin's most important diesel-Tinker spell of a mile. The environmental administration is prohibited with the Track a little in arrears, but this year it's supposed to go.

House of One

At the Petri space in the wide Gertraud street St. Peter's Church, the oldest Church in the city used to be. Destroyed in the war, then demolished, remember today only archaeological excavations at this place of origin. An Initiative from the three religions, Christians, Jews, and Muslims, want to build a "house of prayer and interdisciplinary teaching," a project of encounter and understanding, also for people without Faith. The laying of the Foundation stone is planned for 2020, but until then a lot can happen. A patron of the arts withdrew its commitment, because the Muslim Association of the Gülen belongs to movement.

no one had the intention of the Hohenzollern castle. Or is it? Looks at least from the outside as the previous building, but is intended to unfold in a completely different spirit, in spite of the Baroque facades that surround the concrete shell. Meanwhile, most of the scaffolding fell, many of the exhibits have already moved in, the interior is in the final straight. In the autumn, when officially opening (the Plan), but will not be ready. The Slogan of the Foundation, which is responsible for the construction, is as follows: section opening“. It is certain that the Berlin exhibition will be late. But that kind of fits.
