"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.
