    Pariser Platz today is the "place to be". Here is always something going on at the Brandenburg Gate. Tour groups from the far East follow the guides who rushes ahead with the shield. Bicycle-taxi drivers waiting for passengers, small artists present their art, police officers who protect the messages interfere with it. Images are shot, before the Adlon reverses a big sedan. Here is life, what is going on here. You must visit trip in Berlin and it's not only because of the Brandenburg Gate ways!

    If you want to see the Brandenburg Gate, this place is also interesting because she is busy throughout the day. In addition, it is here that we see most embassies, including the French Embassy.

  • 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.
