Sightseeing

This page is dedicated to the cool sights of the capital: museums, oddities, lovely areas, and generally any part of the metropolis that we’re passionate about. The list will grow in the coming months. Just follow the links for more information.

  • To kick things off, we’ll start with the German Museum of Technology. This impressive building near the Gleisdreieck subway station is hard to miss, on account of the airplane parked on its roof — to be precise, a candy bomber used by Western allies to drop supplies during the Soviet Berlin Blockade in 1948-1949.
  • The city boasts a fantastic Computer Games Museum. The Computerspielemuseum is housed in one of the so-called “workers’ palaces” on Karl-Marx-Allee – an impressive show of Stalinist architecture – and is dedicated to digital gaming culture. Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2022, the museum has a huge amount of hardware and software on display, from classic games and consoles to the latest developments.
