Shoppers spending time around Friedrichstrasse may want to visit Quartier 206. Located next to Galeries Lafayette, this is an art and fashion themed department store with three floors of high end and luxury brand name retail shopping along with a nice ground floor cafe and modern coffee shops. We visited during December and found Quartier 206 to be well decorated... More

Our hotel was on Friedrichstrasse near the station, also a lovely little Christmas market next to the station. There are some really good shops on Friedrichstrasse as well as some global brands that you find everywhere.Also there were musicians playing under the porticos which added to the Christmas atmosphere

Some impressive shopping to be found here if that's what you like. Was very busy though and extensive works going on for a new U-Bahn line right down the middle of the central street which made it all quite chaotic and getting around / across the roads difficult.

This street has a Mr Sandwich. I'd never heard of this place before but we'd found out on the Sunday that everything in Berlin is closed still on Sundays. We decided to search online for somewhere to go for breakfast on Monday morning and came across Mr Sandwich. This street, like almost all other in Berlin, has some great architecture.... More

Our Princess Cruise tour took us along this main street and shopping area and we stopped for a while at the Konzerrhaus and Gendarmenmarkt square in the neighborhood of Mitte. We were not shopping for anything and just looking instead. There seemed to be a wide selection of shops on the upscale side. It was fairly busy on our weekday... More

Going up this street you ll find a lot of shops of the world biggest brands. Also nice restaurants and coffees are located here. The street is centrally located in Berlin "Mitte", and it is as interesting as Kurfürstendamm, but not that crowed.

A very unsightly street with construction works, glass buildings and shops that are all closed on Sunday. There was absolutely nothing of interest in this street. The greatest disappointment of this trip.

This is one of the main shopping streets in Berlin. It is great for a just a walk, but it also offers great fancy restaurants and cheap eats as well. The street also offers plenty of opportunities for great photos. It is a long walk, especially if you are doing it in both directions. It is exciting, put on your... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
