St Elisabeth's Cemetery

Where the girl's body is discovered in the opening scene. This cemetery in Ackerstrasse in the Mitte district is adjacent to the line of the Berlin Wall, and features some very beautiful bronze (turned to verdigris) statues of angels at the graves. It's very near the Berlin Wall memorial, which features a reconstruction of the wall and a watchtower.

Marx-Engels-Platz Kripo office 

This is the fictional location for Müller and Tilsner's office, under Marx-Engels-Platz S-bahn station. This was what the station was called in the German Democratic Republic (GDR) era -- it's now known as Hackescher Markt from the name of the adjacent square.
