Head to Bebelplatz in the central district to view the site of the infamous May 10, 1933, Nazi book burnings, when more than 20,000 books were burned by the nationalist German Student Association. Bordered by the state opera, buildings of Humboldt University, and St. Hedwig's Cathedral (the first Catholic church to be built in post-Reformation Prussia), the plaza now features a memorial to help remember not only the loss incurred during the book burning, but all the devastation that was carried out by the same hands. To fully experience the memorial, visit after dark. Make your Berlin itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

  • I enjoy looking at the amazing architecture. Another great example. Also like the big open spaces around here. Crazy to think I'm in a city but with so much space around me.
  • Magic during Light Festival and beyond
