Main Street Berlin !. Stretching from the Brandenburg Gate up to the Lustgarten this is a hugely impressive boulevard. It is easy to pass through Unter den Linden without really seeing what is here so take time to walk it and having a good look around. There is the Adlon Hotel, the massive Russian Embassy and the Humbolt University to... More

Not a commercial Champs Elysee... Not a commercial Time Square... Not a commercial Piccadilly Circus... But a low key assortment of high end grand buildings, discreet shopping VERY COLD! Dress to escape raw weather conditions.

The grandeur of this boulevard is currently evident only to those who look beyond the extensive U-Bahn construction mess. It will surely be wonderful again once they are done, but for now, it's just a long construction site that restricts traffic and robs the street of its charm. Riding the upper level of the 100 bus helps elevate one above... More

With the exteriors of the buildings illuminated, this is a treasure. Most spectacular is the illuminated Brandenburg Gate at the west end of the Pariser Platz.

Unter den Linden Straße is one of the top sightseeings in Berlin. It starts at the Schloßplatz near to the history museum, the museum island and Alexanderplatz and ends at the Brandenburger Tor near the Reichstag. There is a gallery for Mercedes Benz as well as many elegant stores and restaurants. This lively wide avenue is excellently lit and decorated... More

The Brandenburg Gate is itself incredible and historic. The street behind it, despite it's historical significance, is not a "sight to see" as I expected and had been told. Perhaps it was because the main section was under construction, but it didn't look as relaxing or scenic or inviting as described. It was a bit of a let-down, so I... More

We were there first of September, before the construction started... it's a nice stroll, but not a destination, nor a place you would go out of your way to visit.

The trees next to the street are very nicely decorated and shine beautiful at night. Huge alley ends at the famous "Brandenburger Tor" with the Adlon Hotel on the left. Old DDR times are somehow gone and great hotels around this area, restaurants and museums. Do not miss!

They are extending the U-bahn underneath Unter Den Linden at the moment, so to some extent the obvious beauty of this place is marred. But they are trying their best, all the trees lining the road are full of lights this time of year, and it makes it seem quite magical.

Unfortunately construction work denies the opportunity to see this famous street in its full glory. Even a walk along the length of Unter den Linden is in itself a experience and in the evening during December the Christmas lights add to the atmosphere.

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
