    The Frederick Street is a major axis in Berlin. Of the Charlottenburg district, over at the Friedrichstadtpalast, station Friedrichstrasse (formerly border post), check point Charlie, to Mehring Platz. Here, a lot is offered in terms of shopping and history. Just "walk".

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.
