It's a cool street, with quite a bit of history, but currently, I found it to be quite average and nothing special.

Main, wide alley in central Berlin. Still welcoming a lot of visitors every day. If you have enough time it's good to take a stroll between cathedral and Brandenburg gate.

Well worth a stroll along the famous road, you can see by many of the impressive building that have been restored or are in the process of restoration what an important street this was in the history of Berlin and Germany.

This main boulevard in the Mitte District is named after the linden trees that line the presditerian green mall.

Despite being here at night there were still lots of people around. The atmosphere and the view at the Brandenburger Tor are absolutely stunning. A must walk when you're in Berlin

Unfortunately there are currently constructing a new subway line underneath this boulevard that will run the whole length of it so there are cranes and scaffolding all along the street. There are many museums here including one that hold the German Pieta-but this one is a German mother cradling the body of her son that was killed in a war.... More

The Brandenburg Gate is the city gates that lead into the Unter den Linden, a boulevard with Linden trees that is Berlin’s key boulevard. Consider Unter den Linden like a Champs-Elysées of Berlin, with plenty of attractions lining up the boulevard. From the Brandenburg Gate to the Tiergarten, to Humblotd University to the Museum Island all the way to Alexanderplatz,... More

This is a very long and impressive avenue full of historic buildings, museums and works of art as well as cafes, bars and shops with the Brandenburg gate at one end and the river at the other it's a must do place to visit.

Staying in Mitte

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.
