  • One can debate is whether it should dock a message directly at the Brandenburg Gate. Historically, Americans have the right to do so certainly, this aesthetic certainly isn't, because the message is a not really appealing, functional building. Can not clear, pure, and the message is also shielded. The construction are basically and the location like ketchup on rack of lamb... too bad... so is not really great America again at least not from a German perspective....

  • We love the people of the United States. We're going there very much. We are also very grateful that the Americans have liberated us from the Nazis. The Embassy building is architecturally appealing and exactly at this point at the Brandenburg Gate. But we here not love's in Germany at all, if the NSA by the US Embassy is listening us.

  • Please note! NO BAGS are allowed inside, despite of the information one receives when applying for VISA. On the confirmation document it says you are not allowed to bring big bags or backpacks. But even if you have a small purse you won't be let in, and you have to leave it in a kiosk at the U-bahn station (2€ charge). Would be nice to know it in advance.
  • I called 3 times to ask whether or not the embassy is open for a short visit, the operator was soooo impolite, first she couldn't talk english and i had the impression that she even didn't go to A1 english course, btw she was angry why i am calling and want to visit the US embassy if i wanted visit her home!!!! she hung up 3 times and didn't answer. she said today is kafreitag, i told her that it is exactly the reason i am calling and want to know whether the embassy is open or not bc in US website is written " die öffnungszeiten können abweichen ". she hung up again. i even told her the third time plz don't hung up but she did. US embassy have to know it is shameful and far from human values.
  • The service that i was treated with when i attended this establishment was very uneasy, i was verbally abused. There was a foul stench. 1/10 would not go to again.
  • Absolutely unhelpful, unfriendly. I wanted to enquire about a VISA, I was uncertain which VISA I need. She told me I will find all the information online and she is not a telfon information service and hang up on me.
  • If you want consular services, go to the Clayallee building. The Embassy is a great stop if you are planning a group trip from the USA. If you plan in advance you can get a very good talk on US-German relations. Again, this is not where Americans get services.

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.
