A walk you have to take!

Lots and lots of shops and great architecture on the both sides of the street as well as these magnificent trees! It is a must-have walk when you are in Berlin.

After visiting the Brandenburg Gate I would recommend taking a stroll down this road. It has good views and shops. It also has several main roads joining it making it very easy to walk to your next attraction you want to see.

Unfortunately the on going U-Bahn construction is disturbing. No much enjoyment should I say to walk on a working place. Just wait a couple of years or more.

I first walked through this area back in 2007 on a weekend getaway trip. Although Berlin was truly battered up during WWII some places just survived with its original charm. In the Cold War, I would imagine that it was hard to get to from the "West", however, when the wall came down in 1989 this stretch became one of... More

It is really fantastic! There few places in Europe so beautiful. Walk through it from the Brandenburg Gate to the museum island. You'll enjoy every minute. Have a coffee or apple strudel in any caffe. Beautiful buildings and good ambient.

Due to the construction of a subway line underneath finally this pomp street is not in its best shapte right now. Still walking along it from Alexanderplatz to the Brandenburger Tor you can see enough splendor. When the street is back as in old times, please come back.

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

Staying in Mitte

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.
