Lots of interesting places and nice buildings but not a must see area. The must sees here are the memorials and Brandenburg gate. Worth a walk over if visiting other sites.

Historic square rebuilt after the German reunification. Bordered by the Brandenburg Gate, the new Hotel Adlon, Unter den Linden. It was one of our places of passage during our stay in Berlin. Inevitable.

As it's located in front of Brandenburg Gate and at the very end of famous Unter den Linden Avenue, it's an inevitable sightseeing for every visitor in Berlin. Until 1814 it was called Quarré or Viereck (the Square). But in 1814 the square got the...More

Good looking place where you can spend a lot of time just relaxing or contemplating the surroundings. Brandenburg Gate is right here and the Holocaust memorial a 3 minute walk.

The square on one side of the gate is jammed full of tourists trying to get pictures of the gate with no tourists in them. It is a flat cobblestone area. Nothing else.

Really scenic area for sitting and watching the world go by. Lots of tourists here, so if you want quieter photos go early morning. The buildings in the area are beautiful. There are also small garden areas with tulips.

This is a large public square 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. The American Embassy and Hotel Adlon are worth looking at

Very important and historic square in the center of Berlin with serious buildings all around, plus the big park. Not necessarily pretty, but grand and important.

This is where you'll view the Brandenburg Gate, it's a pedestrianised square and the buildings surrounding the square are quite modern since they've been newly built or refurbished. There is a hive of activity here all the time, lots of excited tourists and why not?...More

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
