Pedestrian area and historic square next to Brandenburg Gate. Surrounded by embassies and the Hotel Adlon. Full of tourists and locals. Entertainment, site of demonstrations and more. Enjoy the vibe. More of a walk through zone for photographic opportunities of the Gate.

like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
