If you like a burger, then Burgermeister and The Bird are good.
YES! The Bird.

that's the place I was thinking of.

I like the Olympic stadium and old airport, catch a game in the former. Both Nazi architecture of course.

On the topic of Nazism, there are bunkers to visit, but what really struck me was the concentration camp at Orianenburg. It is easily visited at the end of one of the S-lines.
I guess it would be like Croydon or Southgate in London. The nazis started using it in 1934, in full view of Berlin, Germany and the world.

If I remember correctly British politicians may have even visited. Haunting but a must see IMHO

The lakes and Grunewald are great, but more for an extended stay or if you are resident.

Hitler's Bunker is almost worth seeing for just how low key it is. A single sign and that's all - just a car park now. It's about a minute walk from the holocaust memorial, and you could easily walk past it without knowing what it used to be.

For runners Berlin Marathon is much recommended.

These are interesting museums:

Think that's the whole idea. The German government did not want to make it a shrine to the right wing scum who still look on him as some misunderstood hero.I do not think it is a coincidence that the Holocaust memorial is right next to it.

One place to visit is the library site where the nazi's did the book burning (it's shown on Ep1 of The World at War) The memorial is underground and viewed through a skylight / window.

I realise it's not considered politically correct, but in an ideal world i'd happily wear an M43 field tunic of an SS Unterscharführer out clubbing.

I get that, but it's amazing at just how understated it is. It is essentially just a sign that looks like it's got something about car parking restrictions.

I think it was the Soviets/East Germans who had that part of Berlin.
