The historical Friedrichstraße is again Berlin´s first address for shopping and dining. Once Berlin´s liveliest mile - now it attracts again with luxury and elegance, with extravagant architecture, with shopping temples, many cafés, bars and restaurants, with opera, theater and variety shows.

The Friedrichstraße stretches over a length of 3,3 km into north-south direction across the Berlin centre - separated through the Wall from 1961 to 1989, accessible only at the legendary border crossing "Checkpoint Charlie". Allied armed forces, foreigners, diplomats and embassy staff crossed here the border. Today an old customs house and the old warning sign in three languages "You are leaving the American sector" serve as a reminder, as well as the museum house at  Checkpoint Charlie in the Friedrichstraße/ corner Kochstraße.
