If you are in the area, visit the church which faces Charlottenstrasse (not the dom) during their brief, 15-minute "Organ Meditation" from Tuesday to Friday 12:30 PM.

This is a nice relatively recent structure that fits well the square. Not worth going inside or climbing on the top because the view is quite modest. The area around is quite nice, with Xmas marked and many good bars and restaurants.

The original church has been destroyed during the second world war. It was renovated 30 years ago. It is used today for conventions by the Evangelical Church in Germany. The outside is interesting, but the inside is not.

Don't bother with the stairs to the top or the Hugenot Museum, just step inside the side entrance and feel at peace. It is white, full of light and quite lovely. Then you can go outside and sit at the cafe here and relax. The...More

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
