You'll probably end up naturally in Mitte, whether you're arriving via the HBF or just exploring the city. Either way, it's a great part of the city, which is very nice to explore. There are government buildings, museums, restaurants, and lots of other things to see.

This place is a very good spot for orientation and it is near to the main transportation lines of the city. Being in the old communist side you can still see the irony while entering into franchise restaurants in a building with architectonic style of the cold war

Mitte (meaning middle), the district located in the heart of Berlin, offers a variety of cafes, shops and things to see. Mitte is where Berlin began in the 12th Century, as a small trading post by the river Spree, and, though WWII, Mitte was always the Berlin's political, commercial and cultural center and you will inevitably pass through this district...

Compact, hip burger bar with exposed brickwork & outdoor tables for home-made food & fresh toppings. I had the Flash Gorogozola... I liked all the flavors and all the ingredients were very fresh...

This is possibly the best location to get a hotel. I have been to Berlin several times and I have always found Mitte the best. Very close to public transport.

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.
