Berlin. Berliner Dom. Altes Museu. Marx And Engels

Berlin Cathedral 

is the largest Protestant church in Germany. Its construction lasted between 1894 and 1905. It's located on 

Museum Island

in 

Berlin

. Initially, the building with the dome had reached a height of 374 feet (114 m). After World War II, there was a reconstruction of the seriously damaged cathedral, and now it stands at 321 feet (98 m) tall. In the crypt are the burial places of Prussian kings and princes from the Hohenzollern dynasty.

Old Museum is located next to Berlin Cathedral on Museum Island. Until 1845, it was called the Royal Museum. Since the restoration in 1966, the museum has housed a collection of pieces of antiquated art.

These boys and girls sat on the parapet opposite the Berlin Cathedral. Who are they and why do they sat there - I don't know. The sculpture is simply called: Drei Madchen und ein Knabe (Three Girls and One Boy).

From one angle, this is just a wall. But from another, you can discern human figures on this wall.
