Nice avenue, but still under construction. When the constructions will have finished in Berlin, I'm sure that Unter den Linden will have a completely different atmosphere, a wonderful one. However, it's nice to walk there for a while and do some shopping !

After visiting the Brandenburg Gate and Reichstag Building, my girlfriend and I walked the length of Unter den Linden on our way back to our hotel, the Radisson Blu. (Some of the reviewers here seem to think that Under den Linden extends to Museum Island and beyond to the Berlin TV Tower, but it doesn’t. It ends at the bridge... More

We stayed at a hotel on Unter den Linden and I have been to Berlin before and enjoyed the walk from Museum Island to Brandenburg Gate and beyond. However, most of the notable sites are currently under construction and blocked by fences with cranes in the background. It is still a worthwhile walk if you need to get from A... More

This street is amazing! Start at the Brandenburg Gate and head rowards the beautiful Berlin Dom ( Cathedral). Stop and admire the numerous beautiful buidings all along the way. Since unification, Germany has restored this iconic street to its former glory. Amazing architecture will astound you! Pick a hotel on this street and you won't be disappointed.

I really like this street because there's a lot of history there, tons of historic buildings and the statue of Friedrich the Great. Unfortunately though, you are (at least right now) not able to take any pictures of the beautiful things there, because they are either fenced off or you have a construction vehicle parked in front of them or...

Don't bother walking it until the new metro station is finished. Nothing to see but but pipes and temporary fencing.

Unter den Linden was Berlin's answer to the Champs-Elysees in Paris. It runs from the Pariser Platz to the Berliner Dom on Museum Island. Currently, it is a massive construction site because of a new subway station being built at Friedrichstrasse. Accordingly, the boulevard itself isn't much to see. Even so, there are a number of attractions to visit along... More

Sadly its just a huge building site - and the trees are mere striplings hanging on for better times - hopefully it wont take long to bring it back on line

This more an experience than an attraction. There is a lot of contruction in Berlin, but it is still a beautiful old city. There many sights, cafes, shops and other pleasures to be found here.

The entire median is dug up due to them adding a new subway. However, it is still a nice stroll. Plenty of stores and souvenier shops.
