“Central area”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

That's basically most central area that contains all (or almost all) main tourist attractions. A lot of things to see.

“The Middle”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

This area makes for a good base when visiting Berlin. Many of the city's most famous sites are easily reached from here. I chuckled at the former East's world clock...the time was incorrect. If you are into people watching, this is a great spot to park yourself.

“Rich in history”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

If you're looking for an educational break, Mitte is the place for you! Rich in museums, attractions and memorials, Mitte has preserved and highlighted the historical importance of Mitte, rather than pretending the atrocities of history didn't happen, in particular with reference to WWII.
The city is clean, has beautiful buildings and is somewhat empty, with a a population of around 3.4 million living in a city with the capacity for 5.5 million. Transportation is uncomplicated and you can choose from buses, underground trains or the tram. All train ticket machines have numerous language options and accept both cash and card. I don't think I was ever more than 100m away from a station!
There are a plethora of restaurants and cafes in Mitte and most staff are willing to converse in English if your German isn't great; and their English will most likely be very good.
I stayed in the city for 4 days and was able to visit around two thirds of the major attractions. Most museums are free, or relatively cheap and with tourism being the main industry of the city, there is an abundance of companies offering tours of the city.
I would definitely recommend Mitte to anyone wanting to learn about the history of Berlin and wanting to stay in a central location!

“The centre of Berlin history”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Mitte is the place to stay in Berlin. Full of history and museums. Take a river cruise. Check out the Reichstag and the Brandenburg Gate.
