My favorite part of Berlin was not the Brandenburg Gate or the Reichstag building or any of the other tourist attractions but rather the Hackesche Höfe, a collection of local shops linked by interconnected courtyards. Stop in to Hackescher Hof for coffee and a snack and then wander through the shops (be sure to check out a little gift shop... More

Only had a too quick walk thru this remarkable nested yards. Next time I will be sure to have a couple of hours to wander around and detect all the wonders and arts.

Interesting architecture and a nice break from the big city views. However I would have appreciated it more if it had more places to sit and have a coffee. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

This is one of my favourite places to just mooch through. The first courtyard is very pretty with its Art Deco designs, and there are cafe's to sit and enjoy the pretty courtyard. Go through to the other courtyards too and find some cute and interesting shops and art galleries. A nice way to relax and enjoy a quiet moment... More

Lovely to see how the buildings have been transformed. Lovely to amble through the cobbled paths. However the goods were beautiful but quite expensive.

it's fun exploring the back alleys of Berlin and imagining what this looked like 100 years ago. Now there are shops selling artisanal chocolates and Jewish toys as well as small boutiques and craftsmen.

What a lovely warren of courtyards and architecture. Well worth a visit when in Berlin, quaint independent shops of all kinds. Stop for a coffee and enjoy.

Walked around the maze of shops and found towels with the green and red walking man on. Very cute. Stopped at a Teavana and had some coffee. These are quaint little private stores with some interesting merchandise.

The Hackeschen Hoefe are a series of interlinked courtyards with shops at ground level and flats above. Apparently similar courtyards were very common in the past in many continental cities (eg also Prague) but few have survived the war. This one has some nice quirky, Art-Nouveauish architecture and a range of shops - good if you're looking for presents for... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
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.
