20 Photos to Inspire a Visit to Berlin to learn about its History

Instead of to Inspire a Visit to Berlin, this post focuses on the History of Berlin. I was truly moved by the city’s take of remembering their history and the focus they put on learning from the past. In recent history, they’ve seen the atrocity of the Second World War with its concentration camps and genocide. Consequently, the political aftermath and fallout in the form of the Berlin Wall just continued the unease around Berlin, as it found itself split in two into West and East Germany. The terror the city has seen is well documented throughout Berlin in memorials, museums and information centres, with the majority free to see. Here are my 20 Photos to Inspire a Visit to learn about Berlin’s History.

  1. I wish you had explained these photographs. I imagine several of these photos have to do with the Second World War.

    1. This is a good point. I may well look into doing this so they read better. As I’ve been there, I understand them, but for someone who hasn’t it would be useful.

  2. I haven’t thought of visiting Berlin at all but these pictures are making me think of looking into visiting. Really nice blog.
