Nationalities of all kind can be found here, I'm not only talking about the many tourists but the different embassies, it is not only a great assembly point for tourists but also for protesters that have something to say-peacefully. Worth seeing

This is Berlin's most beautiful square. The Brandenburg gate is on one side, and behind the beautiful Reichtag; On the other, the Unter den Linden avenue stretches in the direction of the Museums island. And around the square, the French and US embassies, as well as the Adlon hotel. It is elegant, spacious, and full of history. It is a... More

Small size square with the Adlon hotel. This hotel is amazing see my separate review. Good views of Brandenburg gate and leads up to Reichstag building. Again see other review for Reichstag.

Steeped in history and a lovely place to visit. I started my walking tour here which was very fitting. As well as the Pariser platz, the Brandenburg gate, you also have the famous adlon hotel. The location is great to venture to other recommended sites such as the holocaust memorial, tiergarten and the reichstag building.

The most impressive place I visited in Berlin, no doubt! You can almost feel history down here, which is a gift when you surrender to that at the spot. A place not only for sightseeing, but for sightfeeling too!

The most noteworthy thing iMO was an exhibit on street which described the square as the place where the Nazi's did their thing ie hold lots of self-congratulatory parades. Otherwise its a good place to rip around on your bike and practise tourist-slalom - and believe me there'll be lots of tourists here. It's basically a square separating embassies and... More

Great square to visit the Brandenburg Gate. Hotel Adlon is just there (the infamous place where Michael Jackson held the baby from the balcony). The US embassy is located next to the gate at the square. There's a dunkin donut, Haagen Dazs and some other cafés.

This square is to the east of the gate and provides lots of opportunity to take pictures of the gate, of the square and of the Embassies and the Hotel Adlon that are around it. Nice atmosphere. Lots of people but also lots of room for them.

Pariser Platz is a square in the centre of Berlin, located at the end of the Unter den Linden, in front of the Brandenburger Tor, which was built in 1790. At that time the square was nameless and just called 'square'. But after Napoleon was defeated and Paris was captured in 1814, the square was renamed ' Pariser Platz', in... More

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.
