Fodor's Review

Neuer Markt (New Market) square has baroque-style architecture similar to that of the Alter Markt square and a handful of the city’s best-preserved buildings, some of which date back to the 18th century. In the former royal stables at the west side of the square, the Haus der Brandenburg-Preussischen Geschichte (House of Brandenburg-Prussian History), is both a museum and a cultural center, with exhibitions that delve into the past and present of both the city and the region (€4.50, Tues.–Thurs. 10–5, Fri.–Sun. 10–6; 0331/620–8550; At the center of the square is a squat, pink structure built on the site of a grain weighing station in the 18th century: the newer incarnation was built in the 19th century, and today houses a restaurant, fittingly named Waage or "Scales."
