  • It's not as mentioned as is the avenue that crosses, the Unter den Linden. But, for me, this is much better, because it has a life of its own and intense. Several shops and even the famous Galeries Lafayette; Hotels interesting (it was on this street that was our hotel, Eurostars Berlin Hotel) and several attractions such as the Friedrichstadt-Palast and the Berlin Wall Museum (Museum Haus am Checkpoint Charlie). Note that the street stretches beyond the bridge over the River, this bridge is very beautiful and which has a good view of the Museum Island. Emphasize the good restaurants like the Maximilians.
