  • Bella the sumptuous Brandenburg Gate that stands on the side of the square, although the context is not very appreciated

  • This small square ("platz" in German) is right in front of Berlin's most famous landmark - Brandenburg Gate. It is also the beginning of "Unter den Linden" Boulevard. On south side it is American Emba...  more »
  • The Pariser Platz is a large square directly at the Brandenburg Gate. Unter Den Linden also ends here. Many impressive buildings including some embassies (American and French) and the prestigious Adlon hotel. Is in the must see objects of Berlin. Ideal for photo shoots.

  • The Platz where Unter Den Linden culminates. There a couple of hotels, shops and embassies around this area and I suppose is a famous meeting place for locals as it's a wide area. Also where Brandenburg Gate is located. Lots of tourists. Must visit if you are to see Brandenburg Gate up close.
  • It was a nice place to visit. At the time of my visit, there was a protest about Iran or something, which I found kind of usual, but interesting to witness. You can also see and visit so many great landmarks from this plaza. Definitely can recommend. It's also less crowded because of the size, which is nice.
  • If you visit berlin, this is the place you have to see. Mostly crowded. Central event place such concert, demonstration or exhibition.
  • Everyone knows that this place is a hot tourist spot. However this platz is also a symbolic spot for the local activists and protesters to host their events.
  • “Multinational square” Nationalities of all kind can be found here, I'm not only talking about the many tourists but the different embassies, it is not only a great assembly point for tourists but also for protesters that have something to say-peacefully. Worth seeing.

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.
