“Come back in a few years”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

I've been to Berlin many times and would normally recommend this avenue for its splendid Prussian architecture.However due to the construction of a new u bahn line and renovation work it currently is a large building site.Visit by all means to see what you can through the work and obstructions but come back in a few years to see what it should look like.Also when the façade of the stadtschloss is rebuilt the area should once again be an architectural gem.

“Too much construction”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

I am sure in the past this has been a beautiful Avenue and will be in the future, but at the moment there is too much construction and is only suitable for getting from A to B or accessing sights of it. If you want to experience an cosmopolitan Avenue at this time Kurfürstendamm is much nicer.

“Construction :(”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

My tour guide took us through here. I honestly never would have thought to go into the train station to see the old Nazi Era train station signs. This was a nostalgic area to imagine the escapes which took place among these tunnels and picturing it as a sealed of "Ghost Station" as it used to be referred to.

“Construction everywhere but still great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Construction seemed to cover most of the roads/pathways on Unter Den Linden but non the less you could still see most of the buildings and go into the many shops and cafes.

We especially enjoyed the Mercedes Museum and restaurant and I would recommend the white chocolate latte, and also seeing a real life Bugatti in the Bentley store was a great sight to see.

Although there is construction you can still take a stroll and all the buses are still functioning on time.

“A nice evening walk but mind the construction”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

Was good for an evening stroll but as other reviews have noted there are a lot of construction works for the new U-bahn line to the Hauptbahnhof.
