Things to do for Wheelchair Users in Berlin
East Side Gallery (Berlin Wall), Friedrichshain
Just across the Oberbaumbrücke bridge (made famous in the film Run Lola Run) stands the largest remaining section of the Berlin wall called the East Side Gallery. Saved by artists who’ve turned it into a canvas for their work and more recently in 2010 new artist murals have been commisioned which adorne the stretch.
Kaiser Wilhelm Gedächtniskirche ,
The Gedächtniskirche (memorial church) is a preserved ruin of a once great church which was partially destroyed during WWII. The damaged spire of the old church has been retained as a memorial and its ground floor made into a memorial hall.
Checkpoint Charlie, Kreuzberg
Checkpoint Charlie was the point which marked the end of the former American sector. Standing there now is a museum called the "Mauer Museum am Checkpoint Charlie”, translated means the Wall museum at Checkpoint Charlie which describes the history and recounts countless escape stories.
Bode Museum , Mitte
An old and iconic building on Museum Island, the Bode Museum was built in 1904 and features a distinctive ornate domed roof. Renamed in 1956 in honour of its first curator, Wilhelm von Bode, the museum focuses on art, especially sculptures, from the Byzantium and Ravenna eras, through the Middle Ages, Italian Gothic, early Renaissance and Prussian baroque periods.
In the centre of the former West, Tiergarten is an enormous park with quaint ponds, bridges, cafes and even its own lakes. The northeast corner edges the Reichstag and in the southwest corner lies Berlin’s biggest zoo.
