Berlin Sights

Friedrichstrasse

Fodor's Review

The once-bustling street of cafés and theaters of prewar Berlin has risen from the rubble of war and Communist neglect to reclaim the crowds with shopping emporiums. Heading south from the Friedrichstrasse train station, you'll pass hotels and various stores (including the sprawling, comprehensive bookstore Dussmann and its large but cozy new English-language bookshop around the corner). After crossing Unter den Linden, you'll come upon the Berlin outpost of the

Parisian department store Galeries Lafayette on your left. North of the train station you will see the rejuvenated heart of the entertainment center of Berlin's Roaring Twenties, including the Admiralspalast and the somewhat kitschy Friedrichstadt Palast.

If you have extra time

If you have extra time and feel like walking, stroll along Friederichstrasse. I highly recommend The 12 Apostles pizza near the Pergammon Museum and the Frederichstrasse station. Also, take a minute to go into the station built with the marble from Hitler's office.
