Named for the lime trees lining its central pedestrianized strip, Unter den Linden is one of Berlin’s most famous thoroughfares, and the former hub of historic Berlin.
Many of the avenue’s once palatial buildings are being restored, and it’s a popular location for embassies, shops, outdoor cafes, museums and educational institutions.
A walk along the Unter den Linden is especially magical at night, when the trees are lit up, and during the autumn colors of fall.
The lovely avenue runs east from the Brandenburg Gate to the River Spree and Museum Island. The closest subway is Brandenburger Tor.
