Soviet War Memorial, Berlin

3.9
One of the central war memorials of Germany, Soviet War Memorial commemorates the 80,000 Soviet soldiers who perished in the Battle of Berlin in 1945. Just steps away from the Brandenberg Gate in Berlin's Tiergarten, this memorial was built only months following the battle and the capture of the city. Two T-34 tanks sit aside the bronze statue of a Red Army soldier, while large columns bear the names of fallen soldiers. An outdoor museum just behind the memorial shows photographs from its construction.

    When going for a stroll in the Tiergarden you should check out the memorial. Equip yourself with good information as there are no panels whatsoever.  more »

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.
