Great street!

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

Unter Den Linden is Berlin's most famous boulevard. This elegant boulevard is a great place to wander on a sunny day. It's named after the Linden trees.

The entire street is blocked by an ongoing construction barriers, and it looks really ugly. From Brandenburg Gate, all the way to the Museum Insel.

This street is everything that I was led to believe from all my readings and from my German teachers. A quiet, shady walk on a hot summer day along a commercial, up-scale shopping area.

There was lots of work going on which detracted from the atmosphere of this wide avenue. If you are interested in architecture then there are some really nice buildings near the Brandenburg gate.

I liked this street quite a lot, nice decoration and great stores (although most of them were closed).

I was led to believe by either the internet or my vivid imagination that this was going to be some beautifully magical place with at Christmastime. It's just slightly too far away from the Brandenburg gate for the atmosphere to stretch onto unter den linden and the lights that were on the trees were just awful. I've saw better light... More

We enjoy visiting German Christmas markets and chose Berlin. The markets were very good, but one of the reasons to visit Berlin this year was to see some of the historical building in the city - except a lot of the sights were in fact building sites. Unter den Linden was particularly bad. Lots of the trees have ripped up... 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.
