New York, New York

Unter den Linden is now a wonderful walk. It is like the Champs Elysee of Berlin, a wide tree-lined boulevard filled with cafes, embassies, and hotels. Strolling from the Brandenburg Gate, you can find the famous Hotel Adlon. It has since been rebuilt after its destruction during World War II. There is also the Russian Embassy, the Humboldt University (where many Nobel prize winners have studied as well as Marx and Lenin). There is a wonderful canal and then a bridge crossing over to Museum Island. This is a beautiful spot for photos and resting.
This is quite a long walk and some of it is covered by the Tourist bus lines. However, if the weather permits and you have a good pair of walking shoes, I highly recommend a stroll down this boulevard.
