There’s a lot to discover in the German capital aside from the Brandenburg Gate and the Berlin Wall. In the book “Secret Berlin” Thomas Jonglez presents around 200 sites that are even unknown to some Berliners.
Berlin, Germany’s capital, dates to the 13th century. Reminders of the city’s turbulent 20th-century history include its Holocaust memorial and the Berlin Wall’s graffitied remains. Divided during the Cold War, its 18th-century Brandenburg Gate has become a symbol of reunification. The city’s also known for its art scene and modern landmarks like the gold-colored, swoop-roofed Berliner Philharmonie, built in 1963.
