All Berlin:

Berlin Philharmonie and the Potsdamer Platz area.  

Axel Schultes/Charlotte Frank Crematorium (Crematorium Baumschulenweg)

Reichstag and surrounding buildings. 

Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church

Berlin Olympic Stadium and surrounding Olympic Structures (right next to it is a Corbusier Unité d'Habitation)


Otherwise, Eat lots of Doner Kebabs (kebaps) and try the Italian food, along with the local fare.  Lots of good Italian food in Germany.

Cologne Cathedral is a must. Arguably the most important building in Germany.

Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, near the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin.  Mind-blowing landscape/architecture... as well as very well done memorial content.

Consider going to Hamburg, so much awesome stuff to see there, and really cheap nights on the town!
