Berlin is at the height of modern art and cultural vanguard. Abundance and variety aside, Berlin's modern history reflects on its thoroughfares; namely Oranienburger Straße. This curious stretch through central Berlin is the apex of capitol city's nightlife and local legends. Between the 19th century and pre-war 20th, Oranienburger Straße was a Jewish settlement housing the largest synagogue in Berlin. It reopened in 1995 and graces the prosperity of Berlin's emergence as a culturally diverse destination. Local legend has it that the street is also home of a "ghost wall" (Gespenstermauer) which envelopes two ghost children dashing through a small section.
