Berlin 1953 - 2016

The Berlin Morning Post has developed a fascinating interactive map of Berlin during 1953 and updated as of 2016. The map is split in the middle and you can move cursor to slide the view from one side to the other interactively and can zoom in, as well as move north and south.

You can search for an addresses in the top left hand corner and see what the neighborhood looked like more than sixty years ago, before the Berlin Wall and while the city was still recovering from the Second World War. Berlin removed 75 million cubic metres of rubble in the years after the war. All names are in German. LINK
