This is a beautiful square which is very popular and often crowed. It has several embassies a prestigious hotel. It attracts impromptu shows and music and many beggars. It is beautiful at night when there are less people and the Brandenburg gate is lit.

This is basically where Brandenburg gate is situated. The Reichstag isn't too far from here either. Go early in the morning or late at night to avoid the crowds.

Well, you can't say ''I've been in Berlin'' without being here at least once. The Pariser Platz it's the core city, situated at the end of the main road "Unter den Linden", just getting toward the famous Brandenburg Gate and the amazing surrounding from here. Statues, and many other attractions makes this place the most visited in the whole city.

Pariser Platz is aptly named as the French Embassy is adjacent as are many other embassies in the former Reich Government area of pre WW2 Berlin. Next door to the British Embassy, The Adlon Kempinski Hotel is probably the most notable building. HMQ Elizabeth and HRH Prince Philip were residents when I visited. The Brandenburger Tor is the dividing line... More

Square over which Brandenburg gate is dominating, but there are so much more to see. From marvelous hotels, to enormous new American embassy, this place is filled with spirit of the new, unified Berlin.

Public plaza right by the Brandenburg gate. The surrounding buildings are all quite similar in appearance and present a classical facade. Enjoy the people watching and the general tourist atmosphere.

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.
