Berlin Sights around the Hostel
The Hostel is located in Berlin Mitte, which is right in the center of the city.
Most of the old Berlin is located here. After the
Berlin Wall came down the former center of East Berlin was rebuild and the new Berlin city - the
Potsdamer Platz, which together with the Alexanderplatz was the centre of the nightlife in the 1920's
We are in the northern part of the inner city, very close to Oranienburger Strasse, a few minutes away from
Hackescher Markt and Friedrichstrasse. 10 minutes walking south and southeast you'll get to museums island with
the National Gallery, Old Museum, Berlin ‘Dome’ Cathedral, Pergamon Museum, Humboldt University
and to famous “Unter den Linden” - the main street from Alexanderplatz to the Brandenburg Gate.
Crossing “Unter den Linden” you'll get to gendarmenmrkt and even more sights until you get to
Checkpoint Charlie - maybe a 20 minutes walk from the hostel. If you leave the hostel heading west,
you'll find yourself passing a few modern governmental office-buildings until you get to the Reichstag
and the Brandenburg Gate. Passing the Tiergarten and Victory Column - the ‘Siegessäule’
- you'll reach the Potsdamer Platz, Berlin Philharmonic Hall, New Museum and the Kulturforum with all
the Old Masters.
Almost all sights are within walking distance.
