These places are culture, history and identity of Germany - see what makes them unique.

Mega Places is more than just a quick look behind the scenes. In the four-part documentary series, we visit one of four historical and mythical places in Germany per episode: The Hofbräuhaus am Platzl in Munich, the Nürburgring in the Eifel, Alexanderplatz in Berlin and Hamburg's Reeperbahn are among the places in Germany that everyone really knows. If not from their own visits, then at least from stories or the media. It is these unique places, with their aura and stories, that define Germany both internally and externally. We trace the historical development of these special places and show what makes them so unique and how they became what they are today.
