    "War Memorial to German soldiers" - at time of filming this building was known as the Memorial for the Fallen of the War. Now it's called the Neue Wache.

    "State Theatre" - this is located at Gendarmenmarkt. Damaged during WWII, it's now called the Konzerthaus Berlin.

    "Brandenberger Tor. - Brandenberg Gate" should read Brandenbuger Tor and Brandenburg Gate.
