Work is due to begin in Berlin on a 50 meter-long sculpture dedicated to German unity. The monument is designed to pay tribute to those who used their weight to change the world.
Berlin is getting a monument to the peaceful revolution of 1989-90. It comes after years of contentious squabbling. And residents of the German capital aren't exactly thrilled about the new attraction.
Berlin's latest attraction, "Little Big City," shows a tiny version of the capital. In real life, Berlin is a lot tougher than the model, says DW columnist Gero Schliess.
The Brandenburg Gate is more than just another historic highlight in the German capital. It has become a symbol of how Germany was divided and is now reunited. And it’s the big photo opportunity in Berlin.
A cross planned for the top of Berlin's new Humboldt Forum has sparked controversy. DW's Gero Schliess says the row is not just about religious differences, but gets to the heart of the country's identity crisis.
