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.

Definitely worth it, we only took the tour 1 but it was enlightening about how germans protected from air bombings and how scary must have been. We also learned a little bit about reconstruction. Cool tour and guides!

Loads of open air seating under these lovely trees. Loads of little sparrows flitting around near a few food stalls, but not obtrusive. Public toilet (one of those pay cubicles) was appallingly filthy with urine and other detritus all over the floor. Felt dirty under my feet the whole time I used it and I felt dirty even though I...

Unter den Linden is one of the worlds most famous and atmospheric streets ... but not at the moment. It is just one large, ugly construction site and is best avoided at all costs.

The Unter den Linden is something which I've seen a lot of people tooting about like it's some really big whoop thing to go and see while in Berlin. However, in reality I did not find this tree lined avenue to be any big deal. Either it was pretty much just looking like some street, or else it was actively... More

I am sure this will be a beautiful avenue once again in 4-5 years when the U bahn construction is completed and the trees are a bit larger but right now it is a construction site eyesore and its only value is a passage from Brandenburg Gate to Museuminsel

I have no doubt that Unter den Linden is beautiful when in normal tree-lined beauty. However, right now, works along the entire stretch of the road prevent any atmosphere from flourishing. It is all part of building a new U-Bahn line, which will not be finished until something like 2018. So while it it ncie to see some the embassies... More
