Head to this centre of the Old East for great sights and museums as well as fashion shopping in Scheunenviertel.
For the vibrant heart of Berlin, Mitte is the place to be. Virtually all the famous sights are here. You'll find the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag, the Holocaust Memorial, the Gedenkstätte Berliner Mauer and Checkpoint Charlie. The old Jewish quarter is a bustling area. Auguststraße and Linienstraße, with their many galleries, are Berlin's art centre. For endless shopping and eating and drinking at hip and diverse restaurants and cafés, head to Münzstraße, Alte Schönhauserstraße and Torstraße. Need a breather? Then relax in one of the parks. In other words: you will want for nothing here.
