i visited here in february 2015, i stayed for about 15minutes and left. the entrance wasnt clear, the building is dirty inside. i went up to the third floors, to be followed by the security guard as if i was going to rob something. I then walked over to a table which was at hip height with an acrylic reconstruction... More

A short break from the museum exhibits. I can only rate a 4 because we only ate a soup. But other guests dishes looked good. Friendly waiter and a nice view from the terrace.

Yes certainly a nice place to visit with a great viewing platform towards the cathedral and Unter den Linden towards the Brandenburg Gate where you can have a drink or take a light snack and the restaurant, which I didn't try, looked great for sure. So why the low rating you might wonder. I spotted wifi access on my phone... More

The Humboldt-Terrassen Restaurant/ bar is right at the top of the strange looking Humboldt Box, in east Berlin. We found the view worth the 4 euro per person for the lift. Initially we sat outside looking at the tremendous views around as the sky became darker and darker. This was followed by thunder and lightning and a heavy downpour. By... More

The Humboldt-Box is raised high above the construction site of the new Berlin Castle. It is a fascinating experience to see this gigantic undertaking and have one of the docents explain what is happening. They are actually digging tunnels for a special subway line underneath the castle-to-be which will run from the Reichstag to the castle, it is simply amazing!... More

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.
