The Architecture of Berlin - Old vs. New
The diversity of architecture in Berlin, Germany is due to its history. During World War II, the city was ravaged by bombing raids that damaged or destroyed many historical buildings. Those buildings that were not demolished during the War were subsequently razed in the 1950s and 60s in an effort to build new suburban and industrial districts. This has led to a great number and variety of stunning architectural landmarks in the city that highlight the contrast between old and new, including the Kaiser-Wilhelm Memorial Church, Reichstag Building and the German Historical Museum. In this video, WatchMojo.com takes a look at the variety of Berlin’s architecture.
