"Huge apartment buildings" Top 5 Page for this destination Berlin Local Custom Tip by matcrazy1

Berlin Local Customs: 256 reviews and 309 photos

by matcrazy1

In most European cities - like in say Paris or Rome - there are districts of almost exclusively old houses (old town) and seperate districts of modern architecture (suburbs). But not in Berlin which was heavily destroyed by air bombings at the end of WWII and partly rebuilt in modern style.

So, don't be surpriced to see quite many huge apartment buildings often put among old tenement houses like for example at the end of Ahornstraße (Schöneberg).
