We walked up and down the street a couple of times - it almost traces the character of the city: from the place of departure for those going back to east berlin before the fall of the wall (the palace of tears) then down towards...More
Busy street in centre of Berlin that is full of high street brands. Not the highest end brands though (for this you must go to Kurfurstenstrasse) near the zoo. We walked in Friedrichstraße started from Checkpoint Charlie until the station with the same name as...More
This long street was once the epitome of the division of this magnificent city ,firmly entrenched in the former East Berlin, Checkpoint Charlie was a stark reminder that the city and its citizens had their lives governed by the victors of WW2, nowadays this street...More
Friedrich Strasse is a symbol of Berlin ; it maybe is more famous than Kurfürstendamm in the western Side and Unter den Linden in the eastern side ; until 1989 it belonged mostly to East Berlin and approximately at the end of it there was...More
February 2018 was there again in this central area of Berlin which is accessible by several U Bahn Metro 🚇 stops all closeby. It is also near Checkpoint Charlie and Unter Den Linden where Brandenburg Gate is located.

It is a shopping street, but it confuses people. Down by Checkpoint Charlie you have low end tourist trinkets and trash. Head up a bunch of blocks and you are in high end stores.

We walked along the street to our hotel but spent most of our time going through this area in the S-Bahn station. It's like a shopping mall with a transit system that runs through it. Very easy street and station to get around.
The street has a long history going back to before the second World War. It was home to Checkpoint Charlie during the cold war and the Fiedrichstadt Palast theater is located on it. It is now a major shopping and cultural destination in Berlin.
We stayed in a hotel near the Station at the north end of the street. It's very central, the main North South artery and very convenient for transport, shopping and all public services, together with most of the large Humboldt University. Some fine architecture and...More
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighborhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and 60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and 90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today
you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighborhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
