Plaza
“A very modern square with a lot to see. Among its sights are the Film Museum in the Sony Center (a building straight from the future), the Neue Nationalgalerie - where you can peruse modern art in a modern architectural icon by Mies van der Rohe -, as well as the Gemäldegalerie - a picture gallery home to famous paintings by the great old masters. Then there is still the Phillarmonie, and opposite to it, the Staatbibliothek (state library), both architectural masterpieces by local hero, Hans Scharoun. Do yourself a favor and go inside!”
