Mitte, Berlin

4.2
#2 of 16 in Neighborhoods in Berlin
Mitte, considered to be the heart of Berlin, doesn't feature many beautiful old buildings, because the area was significantly damaged in World War II. However, you can visit Checkpoint Charlie (an important Berlin Wall checkpoint), Brandenburg Gate (an old city gate rebuilt in the 18th century), Museum Island (a complex of five internationally significant museums), and the Deutscher Dom (a large church). In the center of the city, this area is packed with bars, shops, and restaurants to suit every taste and budget.

    My called one of the best, it offers excellent transport links and is very central. Has anyway of monuments and places to visit like the clock and the television tower, but is also surrounded by fast food chains or delicious to eat, whether it is for a meal or for a hit and run. We have opened large chains such as Primark and also offers ample choice thanks to the Mall "Galerie" (if you need the bathroom, head to the top floor or try the Kürtőskalács forming in a banquet always there towards the third/fourth floor)! Often then the square hosts great markets and the neighborhood is still alive!

    Worth visiting to admire its size making it one of the largest European markets. Entitled to the Tsar Alexander I of Russia in Berlin has become one of the largest squares at the behest of the authorities of East Germany.

    The central point of Berlin to the new era. The area has several sights worth seeing, easily accessible by Metro and walk if you don't mind.

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.
