Fascinating to realize that during the book-burning of 1933, that many of Engel's and Marx's books were burned on Babelplatz in Berlin as un-German influences. These huge statures appear stoic and sturdy ... did the architect want to imply a sense power and stability? There...More

The Marx-Engels-Forum is worth a quick stop if you are in the area. Directly across from the Radisson Blu Hotel, these statues are interesting. I wonder what these guys would say today about modern Germany?

This park is located in the heart of the city and is a little quirky. There are some interesting statues here and its worth a look for something a little different.

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
