Unter den Linden probably is the most famous avenue in Berlin.
This avenue was the pageant of Prussian kings and German emperors and the promenade of the bourgeoisie. Later it became the avenue of the commercial industrial revolution and also the avenue of the triumphant socialism of the then GDR. Walking along this avenue from the Brandenburg Gate to Alexanderplatz over the Schloßbrücke from which it is called Karl-Liebknecht-Straße, one can see many of Berlin's major sights within a distance of 2 kilometres.

This 2k street runs from Brandenburg Gate to Alexanderplatz. Along the way you can see such sights as Berliner Dom, Humbolt University and the TV tower near Alexanderplatz. A short diversion off this street brings you to such beautiful squares like Gendarmenmarkt and Bebelplatz. Plenty of places to stop for something to eat and drink and enjoy people watching. There is a lot of construction work going on, at the moment, so that does spoil some sections but still, it is a great place to walk.

If you are visiting Berlin, Unter den Linden is a must see. It's filled with history and though it might not be as well-known as Champs Elysees, it's certainly as beautiful. The boulevard in itself has something special and it offers several sights alonside: connecting the Brandenburg Gate to Alexander Platz, it lures you to Madamd Toussaud's Wax Figure Museuum, the Berlin Dome, the State Opera, the statue of King Frederick II of Prussia, Bebelplatz, Humboldt University, House I of the Berlin State Library and many others. It really is something you have to see!

If you only have a few hours and want to say you have seen Berlin, go to Alexanderplatz and walk along Unter den Linden towards the Gate. The street is scattered with both historical and modern sites on both sides. You will see the Berliner Dome, the Museum Island, the Opera House, Humboldt University, Babelplatz, the statues of Marx and Hegel, and many other famous sites.

The street leads to Brandenburger Tor from where you can go to see the Jewish memorial or the Reichstag.

We have been to all the "famous" boulevards- Champs Elysee, Andrassi Ut, Las Ramblas- and we loved Unter den Linden just as much! Walking along this wide tree-lined boulevard filled with so much history, beautiful buildings (a few construction projects) and the Brandenburg Gate at the end is wonderful. Walking the opposite direction you see the Berliner Dom, TV tower and beautiful bridges. The street is lined with cafes that are perfect for people watching and having a snack/beer. Now, I must say we had perfect weather (80 degrees and sunny) both days, so it was perfect for strolling. I probably would not be quite so enthusiastic if it was cold or rainy:-) Definitely a must see in Berlin.

Well, it's a street. A wide street. With cars, trees and many clueless tourists. With some neoclassic buildings and a lot of neo but-not-so-classic construction equipment. Estimated time of getting the general idea: 2 minuets. Estimated time of getting tired of the general idea: 5 minuets. First attempt to escape: right afterwards. Maybe it gets better at night, maybe. I don't know… The light at the end of the Staße: west to Brandenburg gate and Tiergarten Park, east to the Museunsinsel. Not a single U-ban in sight, try not to get caught in the middle…

It's well worth taking the 100 service bus to the Lust Garten or Alexanderplatz, then strolling back to the Brandenburg Gate. Among other places, we took in the Schlossbrucke, Bebelplatz, the Neue Wache and St Hedwigs Cathedral. From the Brandenburg Gate it's then a short walk to the Holocaust Memorial and then the site of the Fuhrer Bunker. Masses of history in a couple of hours.

Any visit to Berlin should include this wonderful walk - from the Brandenburg Tor to Museum Island taking in all the great building on, and just off the Main Street - highly recommended.

Unter den Linden Straße is one of the top sightseeings in Berlin.
It starts at the Schloßplatz near to the history museum, the museum island and Alexanderplatz and ends at the Brandenburger Tor near the Reichstag.
There is a gallery for Mercedes Benz as well as many elegant stores and restaurants.
This lively wide avenue is excellently lit and decorated during Christmas and the new year.
