This is the place which was originally the birth of Berlin. However nearly nothing remained after the WW II. The GDR reconstructed some old houses and the Nikolai Church. It is worth to visit.

If you are looking to see what old Berlin looks like by coming here, you will be disappointed. The recreation of old German houses is not impressive, only the church looks authentic. The gasthaus food was disappointing too. On no account try the Harze cheese...More

This quarter is quite special: some buildings were moved here from elsewhere so that a seamingly unique mini-village could be created. I like the atmosphere and the German restaurants close to the water. A perfect stop for a lunch, while quickly grasping the sight.

We left the hustle and bustle of Alexanderplatz and headed towards this lovely "old fashioned" area. Beside the twin spired church building were a few Christmas stalls, just gluhwein and sweets. The shops are really nice and there was a shop selling old fashioned wooden...More

Lovely looking part of Berlin. Small area of cobbled streets with lots of cafes, bars & restaurants around. Can also visit some places on the river. Lovely old church to visit too.

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
