Not far from the Forbidden City is located the Tian'anmen Square, also known as Tiananmen Square. At 400,000 square kilometres, this is one of the largest public squares in the world and there are, among other things, a national museum, monuments and the Great Hall of the People. The highlight of this square is the flag-raising ceremonies that are held here.
In the centre of Beijing is the Forbidden City. This palace complex is huge, with 890 palaces and over 8000 rooms. Since only emperors and their families lived in the Forbidden City, outsiders were not allowed to enter. Nowadays, both locals and tourists can visit the Forbidden City and learn about the imperial family.
The Great Wall of China is one of the most famous sights of China and is also called the "Great Wall". It has a length of 21,000 km and was already built in the 7th century for the protection of hostile tribes. From Beijing, you can easily reach the wall by public transport.
