Historical Maps/Plans of Berlin


Recommended Posts

For the map-makers: Histomap is a great source of historical maps of Berlin, overlayed on a current map (with adjustable opacity): http://histomapberlin.de/histomap/de/index.html

I used this to check on some maps that came with the game and which have, um, "disappointing" errors … like a Thälmannplatz in April 1945 and a Leipziger Platz modelled pretty well … only to be then labeled Potsdamer Platz (I live not far from that place, so I noticed it immediately). Yes, I know, I can iron this out myself if I like to …

I confess that initially I was also disappointed about the buildings and street schema, but that was only until I tried to improve on that myself and saw what a huge task it would be to create better maps. And I realize that a better-looking map is not necessarily a better map in the game context.
