I certainly understand the historical significance of this street but was hugely disappointed. Many cheap souvenir shops line both sides occasionally separated by a car dealership or an embassy. Down near Humboldt University there is a grand Meissen Porcelain store and of course the prestigious Adlon Hotel is near the Brandenburg Gate end of the street. I felt I wasted... More

This street is of course central to the Berlin narrative. That being said, it's a little disappointing in person at the moment (spring '15). It is under construction; it is a big loud urban stretch of road; I had seen pictures from the romantic past and expected something more pastoral, which it certainly is not. That being said, there's nothing... More

This grand majestic boulevard is perfect for a stroll through the heart of Berlin. Stretching from the TV tower (at Alexanderplatz) all the way to the Brandenburg gate, this 2km boulevard has wide sidewalks, shops, bars restaurants and even a park in the center of it (with trees and benches). Sights along the street include: the Crown Prince's Palace, the... More

Despite current reconstruction, it is worth a stroll from Alexanderplatz to Brandenburger Tor. Do not miss the Ampelman shop, with souvenirs based on the figure of standing or walking "Ampelman", the icon of the traffic lights in East Berlin. An yes, they still have him on the traffic lights. Cute.

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

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
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.
