There is a lot of construction activity along the street but still a lot to see. There are lots of interesting cafes, restaurants and shops as well. I recommend walking north up Friedrich Strasse and having lunch at Alt Berliner Kneipe at 55 Mittelsrasse which is just west of the intersection.

There is a lot of shops along Unter den Linden, but their seemed to be a lot of construction going on when I went, which was annoying. Nonetheless, I would try and walk down the street at least.

This boulevard, beloved of paintings and novelists, is lovely when the lime trees are in full bloom. But in high summer, it gets very not. In winter, it's unbearably ugly. Why do tourists flock to it? Hurry towards the eastern end where historical buildings amass - museums, Humboldt, churches, palaces. But be warned: in winter, it's grey, windy, muddy or... More

Went here to do some souvenir shopping on our last day in Berlin (recommended by TripAdvisor). Almost all of the shops have the same products displayed. Some are more high quality which makes it more expensive, and vice versa. The further the shop from Bradenburger Tor, the less expensive the souvenirs are. However, because it is Europe now every souvenir... More

The famous street is great for a 2 hour walk, with numerous cafés, shops and an endless stream of tourists, Make sure to end the walk at Brandenburg gate, as it is by far the nicest thing to see on the street.

The walk from Alexanderplatz to the Brandenburg Gate will be really great when the construction work has finished! Not nice at the minute but as they say, "If you want to make an omelette you have to break a few eggs".

Iconic and fascinating is Unter den Linden, with famous buildings and landmarks. It warrants a stroll from the Brandenburg Gate along to Friedrichstraße. At the moment there is a lot of building work going on in the centre of the street whilst the U5 underground line is being built, but it doesn't detract overly much from enjoyment.
