The glass dome atop the Reichstag from which you can look down on the Bundestag. You’ll note there is a ramp that spirals to the very top of the dome at which there is a mini-museum documenting the history of the Reichstag. The Germans are careful to note the Nazis never used the Reichstag.

The last three of these are shots of the Holocaust memorial, ash gray pillars that look both like coffins and buildings. The first shot is looking up. The second, I just happen to catch the right light. The third gives you the scope of the memorial. The last gives you a sense of size.
