To be honest, I don't see what the fuss is about. Might be because I was here in winter so the trees were naked, plus there were some construction sites detracting from the view/atmosphere. But, well, this is a street. With trees. There are some shopping opportunities and a couple of museums, but if it weren't by the Brandenburger Tor... More

This will be amazing when the new U bahn is finished and hopefully the wide street is restored to it's former glory. It is such an important location with so many historic buildings, statues, museums, river etc. Must be forgiven for not being very glamorous right now.

Our Princess Cruise tour took us down this tree lined busy and upscale shopping and dinning street. I think it compares with many such boulevards in major cities. We did not shop or dine due to time limitations.

The Unter den Linden (Under the Linden trees) is Berlin's grand boulevard. Located in Mitte, you can find a wealth of shopping, Grand hotels like the Adlon and some of Berlin's major sights. At one end is the Brandenburg Gate and the start of the Tiergarten. Near the other is Museum Island, featuring some of Berlin's best museums. There's much... More

I was looking forward to a stroll along this historic and glamorous street, but unfortunately the green center is presently all torn up, apparently for the never-ending construction of a new subway line. Thus, unfortunately the street didn't deliver on its main point, but it does lead along a multitude of interesting buildings.

It's a cool street, with quite a bit of history, but currently, I found it to be quite average and nothing special.

Main, wide alley in central Berlin. Still welcoming a lot of visitors every day. If you have enough time it's good to take a stroll between cathedral and Brandenburg gate.

Well worth a stroll along the famous road, you can see by many of the impressive building that have been restored or are in the process of restoration what an important street this was in the history of Berlin and Germany.

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
The centre 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 neighbourhood’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.
