We came upon Humboldt University by chance while walking on Unter der Linden. Beautiful campus and public square. We learned Karl Marx & Einstein are alumni! Located on both sides of Unter der Linden - absolutely beautiful public square surrounded by gorgeous buildings.

To the casual visitor, this University is manifested by big classic buildings. It all looks very serious. Set in the center. In the summer, one finds lovely outdoor cafes and bars.

A beautiful building and interesting to learn that this university has produced the greatest amount of Nobel prize winners! A lot of famous names passed though here, including Karl Marx and Einstein. Very interesting, and sad, to hear about the book burning and empty library.

We stopped here on our hop on hop off- bus tour. The history of this university is remarkable. Many significant people have been studying and teaching here such as Einstein.

We saw this building as part of our Famous Insider Walking Tour. Humboldt University sits on a public square Bebelplatz on Unter den Linden. It is sad that one man tinted and cast a shadow over German history. Due to Hitler, on May 10, 1933,...More

Island. The central location makes this one of 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
