monbijou – your guide in Berlin!
"Berlin is not but is in flux!" And you will be a witness of this permanent change. We will show you gardens and building sites, industrial relics of the Kaiserreich and architectonic highlights of the new capital; we will guide you through museums and government buildings, on the canals and across the many lakes.
Did you know that there are more bridges in Berlin than in any other European town except Venice? You will become familiar with "Kreuzberger Mischung" (mixture) and Schinkel's "Neue Wache" (new guardhouse). Knobelsdorff and Aldo Rossi, Langhans and Kleihues will be more than names to you. You will come to appreciate Titian's legacy in the Gemäldegalerie and "Picasso's century" in the Sammlung Berggruen, and relax with Ossobuco and Linguine in between – for some of the best restaurants in Berlin are Italian. Gendarmenmarkt and Altes Museum (Schinkel's Old Museum), Dom (the cathedral) and Hackesche Höfe, New Synagogue, Reichstag, and the parliament district: seven sights which will make a nice walk – why don't you come along!
