Berlin is a city that’s constantly evolving. Relics from its past blend in with built-up parts of the city, and hidden gems can be found in the most unlikely places. For travellers in the know, concealed sights and attractions are easy to find. Here is a taste of Berlin’s secret spots and sights.
Gartenstadt Falkenberg, also known as the Paintbox Housing Estate, was designed by famous German architect Bruno Taut in 1920. A part of Berlin’s least well-known UNESCO World Heritage Site, these housing estates are recognised for their innovative design. Located in Treptower, there are roughly 128 houses on the estate and most are single-family homes, with eye-catching details and colourful façades.
For an unusual perspective of one of Berlin’s most-visited sights, head up to the Museum für Film und Fernsehen. Here, visitors can enjoy views of the Sony Center and get acquainted with students and workers of the German Film and Television Academy in their modern, sky-lounge cafeteria called the Helene Schwarz Café.
