"Mitte” literally stands for “in the middle”, which is exactly what the district is: right in the heart of Berlin. Not only geographically but also in terms of economic, cultural and political life, Mitte has a central position in Berlin. The parliament, Federal Chancellery (Bundeskanzleramt), ministries as well as most of the big embassies are in this district. Mitte also consists of the quarters Tiergarten, Wedding and Mitte since 2001 and is an east-west district. With many attractions like the Brandenburg Gate, the Boulevard “Unter den Linden” and Checkpoint-Charly, Mitte is a hotspot for tourists. Important establishments for culture and education are also located here.
Many visitors arrive in Berlin by its central train station, Hauptbahnhof that is located within Mitte. Other main transport stations are Friedrichstrasse and Alexanderplatz. From any of these points there are excellent options to reach every corner of the city by S- and U-Bahn lines, as well as by tram or by bus. BVG is the public transport authority and has helpful info in English plus trip planners.
Tiergarten and Wedding are also well served by public transport as Tiergarten has its own S-Bahn stop and S+U Gesundbrunnen is on the ringbahn and a major entry point to the rest of Wedding and beyond.
Humboldt-Universität was one of the first universities to introduce bachelor’s and master’s degrees in 2001. The name Humboldt-Universität is well known throughout the world, and the internationally recognised degrees open all doors for our graduates.
In Mitte, you can find art collections and exhibitions housed in fascinating and unusual locations. For instance, the spectacularly restored Neues Museum on the Museum Island, presents the legendary bust of Egyptian Queen Nefertiti in its own richly decorated display room under the north dome. In Reinhardstraße, you can find the private Boros Collection shown in a converted Second World War bunker. For safety reasons, the collection, such as Ai Weiei and Olafur Eliasson, can only be viewed on a tour booked in advance. At the Gesundbrunnen U-Bahn station, which is Berlin’s deepest underground station, the Berliner Unterwelten have transformed an old air raid shelter in a dark seven-metre-high intermediate floor into the city’s most unusual exhibition.
