Description:

Unter den Linden is Berlin's spectacular, wide, tree-lined avenue that forms the hub of Old Berlin. The avenue leads through the centre of the city from Pariser Platz at the Brandenburg Gate to the Lustgarten. Along its pavements lie many imperial buildings including the Opera House, Humboldt university, the Academic Library, St. Hedwig's cathedral, the Berliner Dom. Many of the buildings were designed by the famous German architect Karl Schinkel. According to its name, the street is lined with linden trees that Hitler ordered to be chopped down so that the road could be widened during the Second World War. Many buildings were destroyed during allied bombing but Unter den Linden has been gradually restored to its former glory.
