Been there for the first time in summer and it has a very nice, bubbly vibe. People gather for pictures of Branderburger gate and for tours. It's quite colorful in summer.

To have a private and more special moment, come early and enjoy the light. It will be very crowded during the day making it Hard to grasp the dozents of historical moments that have happened here.

The place is located east of the Brandenburg Gate surrounded by many not quite spectacular buildings. Ideal photo spot for the Gate, and to explore Unter den Linden.

This is an interesting spot that shows how Berlin (and most European cities) were laid out. This type of architecture is not seen any more.

You’re probably going to end up here if you’re touring Berlin because it’s right where the main Berlin attraction of Brandenburg Gate is. Make sure you check out the American Embassy and the Hotel Adlon. This place should be nice when there’s an event going on; it was quiet when we were there.

This is the square by the Brandenberg Gate. Our hotel (Hotel Adlon Kempinski) was in this area. There were quite a few protests during the 4 days we were there, and I don't feel that screaming and yelling will get me to want to listen to your cause. This square tends to be crowded, but there really isn't much there.... More

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

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.
