Berlin-Mitte, the district north of Kreuzberg, languished during the Cold War era, but today it is the thriving heart of the reunified capital city. Here you find the historic Reichstag building and its majestic dome, the famed Brandenburg Gate, the magnificent Unter den Linden avenue, the TV Tower, and much more.
During the Cold War era, Kreuzberg was a downtrodden area in West Berlin. After the Wall fell in 1989, Kreuzberg found itself in the middle of the reunified capital city. Now, some 26 years later, the neighborhood is one of Berlin’s trendy cultural hubs.
