“Beautifully lit at night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

the view at night with the Fransosicher and Deutscher Dom's illuminated is stunning. This is a very special part of East Berlin and so good to see it restored to former glory.

“Great neighborhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

With the beautiful churchs, Humbolt University and wonderful resturants and shops one of the best neighborhoods in Berlin. If you stay at the Hilton it is in the middle of the neighborhood.

“Pretty square!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

This is a beautiful cobblestone square with 2 churches opposite of each other. When we arrived there, there was lots of police and film makers shooting an American movie, so we could not enter the cathedrals. But just walking on the streets of the square or visiting one of a hundred cafes and restaurants there is great.

“Elegant Place to Stroll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

After being mostly destroyed, it has been reconstructed to be one of the most beautiful places in Berlin, if not one of the most interesting. It is free to stroll, but some of buildings charge admission.
