In 2013 we will be in Berlin for our 6th Forum. This is a truly inspirational city and we are very much looking forward to being there.
One of the most iconic landmarks of the city is the Brandenburg Gate, that is located at the junction of Unter den Linen and Eberstrasse, west of Pariser Platz. The nearest U-Bahn station is the Brandenburger Tor. The gate has an interesting history, as Previously, the Quadriga, which is the triumphal statue of the winged goddess of peace driving a four-horse chariot located at the top of the gate, was once stolen by Napolean during the occupation of Berlin by the French army in 1806. It was only returned t0 Berlin in 1814, following Napolean's fall from power, and the statue's olive wreath was exchanged for an Iron Cross.
This small island located in Berlins Spree River has a unique ensemble of five museums, including the Pergamon Museum. It's easily accessible by public transportation; the nearest U-Bahn station Weinmeisterstr./Gipsstr. This island is a cultural and architectural monument of great significance it was awarded UNESCO World Heritage Status in 1999. Another iconic landmark on Museum Island is the Berliner Dom, which is the parish church of the Evangelical congregation. You can climb to the top of the dome to get a breathtaking view of the city.
