It is home to Friedrichstraße, one of Berlin's most famous shopping strips and considered by many to be the city's number one shopping location. See for yourself what all the fuss is about when you tour this long road, which crosses the Spree River and is close to some of the German capital's most famous sights. On this bustling street, you will find department stores and high-end boutiques. There are plenty of coffee bars, cafés and restaurants if you need to rest and top up your flagging energy levels.
