History Museum
“I don't know the curator, but he/she must be quite a person as there are really good art shows put on here. The building next door, the Liebeskind building, is a must-see. The architecture is quite breath-taking and can make you feel manic, and i guess that's pretty much the architect's point!”

“A long wait is definitely worth it! The recommendation to find the best burger in Berlin in an old toilet house (yes you heard it right lol) in front of a subway station seemed a bit suspect at first, but I didn't want to leave it untried.
