Berlin Attractions for Conference Delegates

Soon after attending a business conference in Berlin located in eastern Germany, take an extra day or two to visit the Pergamon Museum, the Reichstag, the Holocaust Memorial and the Brandenburg Gate. The Pergamon Museum is an ancient Greek museum which is situated on Museum Island in Berlin. The Reichstag is a pretty impressive neo renaissance construction and the house of German parliament. The Holocaust Memorial was constructed in the memory of the estimated 8 millions Jews slaughtered during World War II. It is close to Brandenburg Gate and the bunker where Hitler committed suicide. And then the Brandenburg Gate, which is the last remnant of Berlin’s medieval history, stands as an eternal symbol of the city.
