On the way you will be passing the Humboldt University, the oldest university in Berlin, Staatsopera (the Operahouse), Museumsinsel (the Museum Island) and the site of the future Stadtschloss (town castle).
The Museumsinsel (Museum Island) is a World Heritage site. It is a treasure-trove of famous museums. Friedrichstrasse is today a commercial shopping boulevard with flagship stores and grand shopping centres like Galerie Lafayette, Quartier Latin and various international couture boutiques. The street leads to Checkpoint Charlie, the main gateway for the Allied forces, non-Germans and diplomats before the wall came down - and then leads on further to Oranienburger Strasse.
This former Jewish quarter is a very popular district for going out and very famous for its nightlife and hip young crowd. Nearby you will find the Neue Synagoge and the Hackesche Höfe.

Reviews of this property
Lieber Martin - nach der vielen "Badkritik" jetzt doch bitte mal die Duschgarnitiur (Stage, Brausekopf und Halterung) erneuern.
Sonst alles ok. - war auch sauber !!!
Top locatie dicht bij tal van bezienswaardigheden. Appartement sober maar adequaat. Wel door ligging aan hofje vrij gehorig. Voor mensen die slecht ter been zijn minder geschikt wegens ontbreken lift. Parkeren bij appartement niet mogelijk.
Einzige Kritik: Duschkopfhalterung gehört erneuert.
Generell könnte das Bad etwas aufpoliert werden. Seife fehlte bei Einzug.
Extended my stay in the property whilst on a work trip, as was really happy with the accommodation and the location. Communication with host was good, and had no issues with check in, check out. Enjoyed my stay here, and would recommend it.
Ich war sehr zufrieden mit der Unterkunft - die gut durchdachte Wohnungseinrichtung, Lage, etc. - Danke!
Nice location, walking distance to Alexanderplatz, and also many restaurants/cafes/bars in the area. Studio apartment is very nice and modern too.
At first I worried, as I saw a lot of negative comments about WIMDU and I had already paid. However, I was very positively surprised and quickly put at ease:
The responses from the website were prompt and professional. The apartment was clean and the interaction with Martin was excellent. Pick up of the keys was friendly and professional. The apartment had everything I needed and was in good order. Location is ideal; very central to public transport, cafe's, shops. The apartment quiet and around the corner there is action, if that is what you like.
One minor matter, which is why I give it 4 stars and not 5 (I think 4.5 stars is realistic): The blinds on one window (shower+ toilet) needs replacing. The rest of the apartment is in excellent shape. I can highly recommend Martin and the apartment.
The apartment was in a great location, near food shopping, etc and near the transportation network - S - Bahn.
We had what we need for the week's stay. Shower head needs a small repair and we were not able to turn on TV--but maybe that was our problem.
Heike met us and was very helpful in assisting us with baggage when we arrived and when we left.
El apartamento está muy bien situado y es amplio.La cortina de la ventana del baño estaba un poco rota
Con el anfitrión apenas tuvimos tiempo de hablar porque jugaba la selección alemana ,
Lo mejor del apartamento es la ubicación que es perfecta. En el centro de Berlin, es una zona llena de restaurantes, bares ,tiendas y mucho ambiente. A diez minutos de la Isla de los Museos y de otras zonas muy interesantes, con galerías de arte, etc.. Lo peor de todo es que el apartamento no estaba muy limpio, había cosas de otros huéspedes, el microondas estaba sucio, en la cafetera había capsulas usadas, en general le faltaba una buena mano de limpieza. También estaba un poco corto de utensilios. En fin, esperaba algo más por un alojamiento de más de cien euros al día. No hubo problemas en la entrega de llaves, aunque nos hubiera gustado que nos las entregaran en el apartamento como habíamos quedado (llegábamos a las 12 de la noche) el dueño nos avisó en el mismo día de que no iba a poder estar, y dejó las llaves en un internet café a diez minutos del apartamento; con lo que tuvimos que ir con las maletas hasta el sitio andando y luego volver de nuevo al apartamento. Pero bueno, aun con todos los inconvenientes el sitio merece mucho la pena. Creo que lo que si tiene que mejorar es la limpieza.
Tuvimos una fantástica semana en Berlín
