There is nothing special about that street except its history. It is neither beautiful, nor ugly - just ordinary. Probably people, who gave it rave reviews, just have not seen Champs Elysees or Grand Boulevards in Paris. Half of the buildings were destroyed in the...More

Under Den Linden leads to and away from the Brandenburg Gate depending which way you walk. We walked from Brandenburg Gate along under den linden and down to Friedrichstrasse. There are some shops along the way, but the centre of the road is dominated by...More

This is an impressive street which is worth taking in on a walking tour of if Berlin. Just be aware that there is significant construction work taking place at the moment which detracts a bit from the grandeur.

Unter den Linden (meaning: under the linden trees) is a boulevard in Mitte. You can walk this beautiful wide boulevard from City Palace to Brandenburg Gate. There are many shopping opportunities - but I especially enjoyed the tree-lined street and its historical buildings.

There is really not much left from the old glory of this street, where parades used to be held in the imperial times, but it is still worth to take the time to walk by, especially since it ends in the Brandenburg gate.

In winter and with lots of construction going on the street wasn’t at its best. Some impressive buildings, lovely Christmas lights and the view to the Brandenburg Gate. I can imagine it’s lovely in summer but in December it was a bit of a disappointment.

Leading to the Brandenburg Gate, this is a major thoroughfare of Berlin. Lots of shops and impressive buildings. A typical wide street really, but a must do while in Berlin.

Definitely worse things to do than take a walk along the Unter den Linden. Plenty of historical sites of interest along the way. It's a very famous street and worth making the effort to explore, even if you only visit part of it.

Berlin New Year's Eve Fireworks (3 Replies)
I will be in Berlin on New Year's Eve and would like to know a good spot to be at to see the fireworks where it is not too crowded? How crowded will it be on Strasse de 17. Juni in the park or on the Unter den Linden. We would like to see all the sights but not get stuck in a crowd. Thank you for your suggestions and Happy New Year!

We just returned from a week in Berlin and the day we left scaffolding was being set around Brandenburg Gate. Our assumption is that there will be some type of celebration there for New Year's Eve. The new Sony Center is a couple of blocks down the street at Potsdamer Platz and may have viewing. We stayed at the Marriott which is in that location and they may have some areas for visibility. I would check with the concierge, the desk is located immediately upon entering the hotel.

Hello TripaAdvisor community, I'll be visiting Berlin next week and have spent some time coming up with an itinerary. Would love some feedback and any recommendations on places I may have missed. Also we love trying local food (currywurst is already on the to-do list) so I'd really appreciate some suggestions for good, traditional (not too expensive) places to eat around Mitte.

Looks already pretty good, I'd say. What do you intend to see or do in Grunewald forest, the Gleis 17 memorial at the station? Wouldn't it be better and easier to visit Kurfuerstendamm and Tauentzienstrasse with the KaDeWe department store in former West Berlin instead, if you already are in Tiergarten and Charlottenburg? I don't think Tuesday is packed. You'll need some time for the Topography of Terror and the Jewish Museum, but East Side Gallery, the river and Oberbaumbridge won't...More

A few disappointments (14 Replies)
(But then again, too few to mention) : Unter den Linden is a real shambles. I can't wait to see the construction work finished The East Side Gallery is hardly worth a visit nowadays. They are renovating/replacing many of the paintings and you can't take decent photos, because most are behind metals fences. You can see why, because the ones still 'unprotected' are covered in tacky grafitti saying things like 'I love your big xxxxx, Anna' 'So and so was here' and the like. People talk...More

I remember being there in 2014 and seeing people writing graffiti on the East Side Gallery and thinking, 'oh the irony when the wall is soon behind a wall to protect it'. What a shame. They were working on Unter den Linden back then. Is this still the train works?
