Berlin (Berlin in German ([bɛɐ̯ˈliːn])) is the capital of Germany and one of the sixteen German federated states. It is located northeast of Germany. The Esprea, Havel, Panke, Dahme and Wuhle rivers flow through the city. With a population of 3.5 million inhabitants, Berlin is the most populous city in the country and in Central Europe, as well as the first city in population and the seventh urban agglomeration among the countries of the European Union (although it will become the sixth once the United Kingdom's exit from the European Union becomes effective).
Founded in 1237 as Cölln, Berlin was successively the capital of the Kingdom of Prussia (1701-1918), the Weimar Republic (1919-1933) and the Third Reich (1933-1945). After World War II, the city was divided; The eastern part of the city became the capital of the German Democratic Republic, while the western region of the city became an enclave of the Federal Republic of Germany in the interior of East Germany.
Berlin is a world city and a world-class cultural and artistic center. It is one of the most influential cities in the political sphere of the European Union and in 2006 was chosen Creative City by Unesco. In 2009 the city received the Prince of Asturias Award for Concord.

The Berlin Wall (in German: Berliner Mauer) was a security wall that formed part of the inter-German border from August 13, 1961 until November 9, 1989. It surrounded and separated the area of the Berlin city framed in the Economic space of the Federal Republic of Germany (RFA), West Berlin, of the capital of the GDR between those years. It is the best known symbol of the Cold War and the division of Germany. East The wall was referred to in the German Democratic Republic (GDR) as the Antifascist Protection Wall (Antifaschistischer Schutzwall) and by the media and part of Western public opinion as the "wall of shame" (Schandmauer).
The Eastern Bloc dominated by the Soviets held that the wall was erected to protect its population from fascist elements that conspired to avoid the popular will to build a socialist state in East Germany.
Before the construction of the wall in 1961, due to the battered Soviet economy, in contrast to the economic growth of West Berlin, it is estimated that 3.5 million East Germans fled the GDR to the RFA (approximately 20% of the population of the GDR).
A 45-kilometer wall divided the city of Berlin in two, while another 115 kilometers surrounded its western part, isolating it from the GDR. That is, the Wall was the state border between the GDR and the West Berlin enclave. It was one of the best known symbols of the Cold War and the separation of Germany.
The exact number of people who died while trying to cross the border through the wall is unknown, as the eastern side was heavily guarded, and there was no doubt in shooting those who tried to cross into the western side without permission. Around 3,000 people were arrested while trying to cross into the RFA illegally, the last arrest occurring on February 5, 1989. Regarding the number of deaths, the Berlin Prosecutor's Office considers that the balance was more than 200 people, including 33 who died as a result of detonation of mines. For its part, the Potsdam Center for Historical Studies estimates the total number of deaths in the wall area at 125.

The Berlin Bunker, while not the only one built in the city, is known by the inhabitants of Berlin simply as a Bunker.
Karl Bonatz made the design of the building following the commission he received from Adolf Hitler. But the development of the project was not free, but had to conform to the premises and instructions of the chief architect of Nazi Germany, Albert Speer. The construction was completed in 1942, and it can be said that it has an incalculable historical value. It was built with walls 180 centimeters thick, because they wanted it to serve as an air raid shelter if they were attacked by the enemy block.
The five-story building was nothing more and nothing less than a bunker built in 1942 by architect Karl Bonatz in the central Mitte neighborhood as an air raid shelter for residents of the area. In 45, the building became a prison of the secret services of Stalin and then a warehouse of bananas. The Soviet forces gave it to the authorities of the German Democratic Republic in 1949 and by 89, the year in which the Wall fell, the bunker passed to the federal government, which did not know what to do with it and left it at the mercy from partiers, artists and quirky people looking for places for their social life and cultural events. In 92 it became one of the toughest techno clubs in the world. He offered four years of delusional electronic rhythms and sexual parties until he closed in 1996 for not complying with safety regulations. After so much history behind the concrete walls, the couple of millionaires decided to acquire it in 2003.
The building is named after Reinhardtstrasse. It was of the type M1200, a number that indicates its capacity ... The truth is that there are records that 4,000 people came to shelter in the place. As part of its architecture you will find that its walls are two meters thick that support a 3.5-ton steel plate. In this way, they could be safe around 3,000 people, distributed over the five floors that make up the defensive building
After the fall of the Nazi regime, and during the postwar period, the Red Army, formed by Soviet troops, used it as a prison. Later, Germany was divided, by the wall that crossed Berlin, in the German Federal Republic and in the Democratic Republic. It is then that the bunker was enabled as a drying warehouse for tropical fruits thanks to the thick walls that made possible the optimal conditions for its conservation. With the unification of the two Germans, back in the late 80's, the bunker was transformed into a techno music party room, until finally, in 1995, the police closed it.
As part of the renovation, the couple of millionaires who acquired the bunker, decided to take the work of the architects Mies van der Rohe and Tadao Ando as inspiration. The interiors retain that mysticism of the Second World War, however, the style also fits into the modern minimalist contrast.
The art bunker
This concluded the more than curious changes in the use of the bunker, some changes that had nothing to do with the unexpected renovation that would come at the hands of the billionaire designer Christian Boros, who decided to buy it in 2003 and turn it into his home. He created a space in which he also accommodated his collection of international contemporary art, being distributed in 3,000 square meters and 80 rooms intended solely for his exhibition. The remodeling was commissioned to the firm “Realarchitektur” and the whole process was completed in 2007. The following year, everything was prepared and properly acclimatized for the opening of the first exhibition.
The private collection of the Boros family consists of more than 700 works. Some of them were made in the 90s, thus beginning an artistic journey to the present. Visitors are given the opportunity to learn about the art related to the architecture of the building, which is only worth visiting because of the amazing history it hides. The first exhibition was shown from 2008 to 2012, and like those that have been carried out later, it required a time of installation and conditioning of the rooms that sometimes lasted even months.
In this exhibition program, around 130 works from collections of 22 authors could be seen, which gave their creations a variety of aesthetic features and an accentuated personal touch. The recreation of a wooden tree from China, six meters high, by Ai Weiwei was remarkable. A great drawing by Dirk Bell was also exhibited, which occupied 35 square meters of the roof of the bunker; In addition to a striking spider web made with cables, whose creator was Tomás Saraceno.
It should be noted that the works exhibited are not identified because Christian Boros prefers it, and sometimes he claimed that what he offers to the public who visits the facilities is not a museum, it is a “recreational basement”. Many of the people who are going to see it are upset by the experience, but without a doubt, visiting the Sammlung Boros and being able to see the building both externally, and the exhibitions inside, is an excellent bet.
In this house / gallery, there is room for all types of art; or rather, for all types of artistic method or technique from which a communicative relationship with the visitor can be established: photographs, paintings, sculptures, videos or sound recreations.

Prussian Military Academy
The Prussian Military Academy (also sometimes cited as the Prussian War Academy, the Berlin Military Academy, in its original form as the Preußische Kriegsakademie or even the Prussian War Academy) was the military academy of the kingdom of Prussia. Founded by Gerhard von Scharnhorst in Berlin on October 15, 1810, it was restructured after World War I and was dissolved during World War II.
Graduating in the academy was a prerequisite for ascending to the Prussian general body (later the German general body). Carl von Clausewitz was one of his first students in 1801, while other marshals, including von Steinmetz, von Moltke and von Blumenthal field assistants, graduated in the 1820s and 1830s.

The Reichstag building (in German Reichstagsgebäude, abbreviated Reichstag) is located in the Tiergarten district, in the Mitte district of Berlin, capital of Germany. It was the seat of the Reichstag during the Second German Empire (1871-1918) and later of the parliament of the Weimar Republic (1919-1933). Since 1994 the Federal Assembly (Bundesversammlung) meets there every five years to elect the president of Germany (Bundespräsident) and since 1999 it is the meeting place of the German parliament (Bundestag).
The building, designed by Paul Wallot, was finished in 1894 following a neo-Renaissance style. In 1933 he was the victim of a fire whose authorship was not fully clarified. At the end of World War II, during the Battle of Berlin, it was the scene of bloody fighting and was seriously damaged. In the 1960s the most urgent reforms were made. The appearance it has today was acquired during some works in the 1990s, the responsibility of the British architect Sir Norman Foster.

Monument to the Jews of Europe killed
The Monument to the murdered Jews of Europe (in German, Denkmal für die ermordeten Juden Europas), also known as the Holocaust-Mahnmal or Holocaust Monument, is a monument reminiscent of the Jewish victims of the Holocaust in Berlin.
It was designed by architect Peter Eisenman and by engineer Buro Happold. It is an inclined field of 19,000 square meters covered by a grid grid in which 2711 stelae or concrete slabs are located. These slabs have dimensions of 2.38 m long and 0.95 m wide, and vary in height, from 0.2 m to 4.8 m. According to Eisenman's project, the steles are designed to produce an uncomfortable and confusing atmosphere, and the entire monument seeks to represent a supposedly orderly system that has lost contact with human reason. However, in an official tourist brochure published in 2005 by the Monument Foundation, it is stated that the design represents a radical approach to the traditional concept of funerary monument, in part because Eisenman does not use any type of symbolism. An underground annex called Ort der Information contains the names of all known Jewish victims of the Holocaust, obtained from the Israeli Yad Vashem museum.
The construction of the monument began on April 1, 2003 and was completed on December 15, 2004. It was inaugurated on May 10, 2005 and opened to the public on May 12 of the same year. It is located one block south of the Brandenburg Gate, in the Berlin suburb of Friedrichstadt, and next to where it was once the "Reichspraesidentenpalais", residence of the presidents of the Weimar era.
German journalist Lea Rosh was the main promoter of the monument. In 1989, he founded a group to support its construction and to collect donations. With growing support, the Bundestag passed a resolution in favor of the project.
