This is a very important historical street in former east Berlin. There is even a german tv show named after it. Nice for a stroll. Note most walks you take in Berlin have some historical significance. This city is deeply immersed in it's complex history and that's what makes Berlin fascinating.

I was really looking forward to walking down Unter den Linden but it was a real disappointment. It is a building site. See it on the open bus tour but otherwise don't bother with it. Maybe in 10 years time it will be nice.

A very ample city road that instead of getting to your nerves it helps you relax. A walk up and down Unter den Linden is a must for the very interesting city of Berlin.

For visitors, Unter den Linden really only serves as a (somewhat) picturesque walk between more interesting attractions, namely the Brandenburg Gate/Reichtstag/Holocaust Memorial and the museums/cathedral/Humbolt University. That's really the only reason to visit. Along the way you'll pass by Starbucks, Madame Tussaud's and other generic chains - not what you came to Berlin for. Also a given are the countless... More

A very nice park to get some tranquility after the rush and tear of a busy city. Interesting history and peace and quiet after a busy day around the museums of Berlin.

It's a long road with some ok buildings scattered around, it reslly is nothing special, more a route somewhere else than a destination it intself. If you miss it, you won't have missed much. Be warned, there is building work virtually the whole way so you can't even take any decent pictures. The Nivea stores is on the road, that's... More

Incredible walk, specially in the autumn (when I went), BEAUTIFUL colors everywhere. It's the way to a lot of other things you might see, so do take this walk for a while.

Before the construction I imagine this would have been a very nice street to walk down. You cannot see across the boulevard now. Trees are still there and it is a very busy pedestrian street. You must watch out for bicycles as you walk as they are quite aggressive.

Unter den Linden is one of the most famous streets in Berlin. It cuts a wide swathe across the city from the Brandenburg Gate in the west to Museum Island in the east. Its name comes from the row of Linden (Lime) trees lining the pedestrian walkway which runs down the centre of the street. In winter, parts of this... More
