This is one of Berlin's most beautiful places, with twin churches on each side and a concert hall in the middle. Really beautiful

A charming and historical place where you can walk around and have a lunch, a dinner or a coffee. If you prefer, there are a lot of shops nearby!

Came here at night on our last night in Berlin. Stunningly breathtaking square, defintely worth a walk around and area as well. If visiting again I'd spend longer there but as we were here in January it was far too cold to linger about in the minus'!

This is the best example of what so unique in Berlin. One side of the street is brand new, the other side is at least 300 years old. Amazing place!

The evening we went, we found the crowds of people extremely dense and hard to navigate. Nevertheless, it was a good experience, with lots of great Christmas decorations, gifts and edibles.

We visit a number of Christmas markets during are stay however this was far the best. I would recommend to visit this in the day and in the night, as the vibe is so different. it was a €1 after 2.

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
