Unter den Linden, Berlin

2.9
#9 of 47 in Historic Sites in Berlin
Historic Walking Area Landmark
Saunter down the tree-lined paths of one of Berlin's most well-known boulevards, Unter den Linden. Comprising the grassy pedestrian area between two roadway lanes, the street stretches east to west from the Stadtschloss royal palace through the historic city center. Along the way, you'll find historic monuments, trendy shops, and traditional cafes. Visit the street's oldest structure, the Zeughaus, to admire fine Baroque architecture. Then tour the German Historical Museum before ending your walk at the notorious 18th-century Brandenburg gate. If you visit in the early summer months, you'll be able to see the linden trees in full bloom. Plan your visit to Unter den Linden and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Berlin vacation builder.

  • I was so excited thinking I would go and see the famous Unter den Linden! Well, when I finally got there... The street in itself has nothing special. It’s just another boulevard, with souvenir shops. ...  more »
  • Unter den Linden in Berlin Mitte is perhaps the most famous street in Berlin and owes its name to the rows of Linden trees that beautify. The Avenue starts from the Brandenburg Gate to get up to the Schlossbrücke bridge. Along the Boulevard are several government offices, embassies, the University, the State Opera, the Neue Wache memorial and many beautiful 19th century buildings.

  • Berlin's main street, number one! Much shopping, interspersed with estauranger and kebab places! In the middle and at the sides lined the street of big wind. Nicely!

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.
