…is one of the most famous streets in the historic centre of Berlin. It starts at Oranienburger Tor, passes the river Spree on the bridge Weidendammbrücke, crosses the boulevard Unter den Linden and ends at Mehringplatz. This southern section of Friedrichstrasse is not that well – known but the Kreuzberg neighbourhood with its lovely pedestrian zone and the various shops is worth a visit.
The 3.3 km long Friedrichstrasse is one of the heart arteries of the metropolis and offers you countless attractions.

A contemporary witness
But the Friedrichstrasse is also a contemporary witness of Berlin history. Between 1961 and 1990 there was the border crossing between the Soviet occupation zone in the east of Berlin and the US-American sector in the west of the city. Today, the world-famous Checkpoint Charlie is a landmark that time and an attraction that you should definitely visit. Right next to it is the Mauermuseum and provides more information about this checkpoint at the Berlin Wall.
Of course, the Friedrichstrasse is also an ideal street for shopping. In the French luxury department store Galeries Lafayette you can get noble designers outfits or you check out the typical Berlin style along the road in several stores.
So no matter what your looking for in Berlin, whether theatre, show, comedy, shopping, history, boulevard, or simply a good restaurant. Before returning to your LINDEMANN HOTELS® you can choose out of 1000 ways to explore and fall in love with our beloved capital Berlin!
