I walked down Unter den Linden on a Friday night on my way to Brandenburg Gate. I hadn't been here in years and remember its past as the showplace of the DDR. You certainly don't think of the DDR walking down this street today. The buildings looked great with modern structures mixing well with the traditional.

It's green and romantic, but a bit wild and not well maintained. Also, I wouldn't walk there at night

You get a perfect sense of german flanerie after you start walking into this street. Calm and breath-taking .

Its a strange and lifeless street, which at the moment is severely marred by the construction of a new U-bahn line in the centre of the road. The Brandenburger Tor end contains a couple of tourist shops, few very expensive shops and a Dunking Donuts bakery. The rest of the street is rather empty. If you have limited time in... More

A walk along Unter Den Linden is something travellers should undertake as many historic and interesting sights are along its entire length. From the Brandenburg gate to Alexanderplatz it is a trip through the very history of Berlin. At present though significant disruption is apparent due to the construction of a new Ubahn line down the centre of the road.... More

Great and prominent street in the city. Lots of restaurants, top stores and museums. You have to make a walk there.

Very hard to describe, because you are just focusing on other things worth to see. On the other hand, it has a lovely athmosphere.

You must walk from the Brandernburg gate to Alexander Platz. Amazing architecture, many museums and shops to visit are on this street.

This was the perfect street for a solo traveler. I stayed near the Museum Island where the TV Tower was in view. Whenever I took a side street, I'd had the tower as a landmark. I couldn't get lost. The construction didn't bother me because there was nothing I could do about it but make the best of my short... More

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.
