A world famous landmark that is undergoing major roadworks at the moment but that does not diminish the history and status of this thoroughfare as it leads up to the Brandenburg Gates. The souvenir shops are all overpriced but enjoy the architecture without buying trinkets and keepsakes.

There's lots of history & culture, but obviously it's the linden trees that are what is important here, and in (early) summer, it is such a treat! - the loveliness of the leaves and blossom is great, but outshone by the magnificent scent. Worth a long walk.

This is definitely one of the most vibrant and crowded streets in Berlin, stretching over several kilometers where there are so much to see and do here. Well, this is a shopping cum dinning district and of course a touristy area too! On both sides of the street, there are lots of shops, mostly souvenir shops where one can grab... More

It is the main road from the Brandenburg Gate to the TV Tower. It is a very busy road and crowded with fellow tourists and the locals going to work. There is a lot of disruptions at the moment with lots of constructions going on. At some areas temporary pathways are provided for pedestrians. Along the road are lots of... More

Once it was, and hopefully it will be again the msot beautiful avenue in Berlin. The linden trees are blooming - but since the last years there is the construction of the U-Bahn 5, and it is hard to go anywhere - full of counstructions. However on both sides of this avenue there are a lot to see.

This was nice because the trees were in bloom. It offered a pleasant setting which the blooms were a big part. Lots of construction made it very loud, not offering a break from traffic.

I was looking forward to walking this famous linden-lined street and was so disappointed. There is a lot of construction going on and with the noise and traffic, it's hard to enjoy a leisurely stroll. I am sure it would look and feel a lot different when the construction is over and this street returns to its former glory and... More

A broad, tree-lined street in many parts, this avenue is iconic. The literature of Berlin often mentions Under den Linden, as in the WWII novels of Philip Kerr about the fictional hotel detective Bernie Gunther of the Hotel Adlon (itself adjacent to the Brandenburg Gate).

Located in the centre of Berlin is the cities most famous street. So many of Berlin's major attractions are on or close by to Unter Den Linden. You can start at the Tiergarten, walk under the Brandenburg Gate, go for coffee at the Adlon hotel and walk right up to the museum district. On parts of the street major construction... More

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.
