Mitte, Berlin

#2 of 15 in Neighborhoods in Berlin
Neighborhood Tourist Spot
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.

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.
