Central Apartments in Berlin Mitte
A rental apartment in Mitte is ideal for anyone who wants to see some of Berlin´s finest attractions, as this central region will create a great base to plan your stay. Start off in the giant square that is Alexanderplatz, a transport and social hub where locals and tourists alike meet up. While in this region you should visit the Fernsehturm, a former GDR television tower which imposes itself over the city below. Also present on the square is the famous 10-meter-high World Clock, erected in 1969 as a symbol of the socialist reorganization of Berlin and designed by industrial designer Erich John. This region still has elements from its Cold War days with Karl Marx Allee a reminder of socialist rule with grey homogenous buildings lining the GDR built boulevard.
Five minutes from Alexanderplatz and you will arrive in the world famous Museum Island. This exceptional space is filled with unique and interesting collections spanned across five different museums, therefore a must see during any short stay in Berlin. Museum Island is culturally and architecturally important for Berlin and due to these reasons it was declared a world Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999. Of the five museums, the Pergamon Museum is the most visited and contains the intricate Pergamon Frieze and the Market Gate of Miletus for spectators to gaze at.
For lovers of Egyptology the Neus Museum is the perfect attraction for a city break in Berlin. Absorb the rich history that the building has to offer, discovering the bust of Nefertiti and the Papyrus collection along the way. Due to the division of East and West Berlin after the Second World War many of these great collections were separated, however since reunification they find themselves back together again. Museum Island really has something for everyone with other collections including Greek and Roman sculptures as well as Impressionist art collections. However if the outdoors is more your thing then casually stroll along the edge of the River Spree and take in the breath-taking scenery as you pass through beautiful parks along the way.
Unter den Linden
By renting a central apartment you will be able to see the most beautiful boulevard in Berlin; Unter den Linden. This two kilometre long promenade is lined with bars and restaurants as well as top attractions ensuring that you are kept occupied for hours on end. During the 16th century the area was regarded as the home of the gentry, however after being turned to rubble during the Second World War, Unter den Linden has been rebuilt and transformed into a modern day gem. This area is highly regarded as being upmarket with the lavish State Opera a permanent fixture on the promenade. Waytostay provides a range of luxury apartments across Berlin to allow you to experience that touch of class during a short stay.
At the top of Unter den Linden is the Brandenburg Gate which has become one of the most emblematic monuments in Berlin as well as a symbol of reunification. For this reason in recent times it has become a popular meeting place for protests. In addition it also acts as the spot for New Year´s Eve celebrations with spectacular fireworks creating an amazing background to welcome in the New Year.
For history lovers, a Berlin holiday apartment near the world famous Reichstag is ideal to unearth all the stories that this magnificent building has to tell. The design of this iconic building has always been controversial with Kaiser Wilheim II describing it as “the pinnacle of bad taste” up until modern day with the glass dome coming under fire during its initial construction. Although the building has faced many challenges throughout the years from fire, to war damage this building now stands proud as the home to the German Bundestag, serving the purpose it was initially created for.
Remnants of the War lurk around every corner in Berlin and for those looking to remember some of the many lives lost during the conflict then the Holocaust Memorial is an essential visit. Its sombre design is significant and is a reminder of the millions of Jews who were brutally murdered in one of the darkest chapters of German history. Head underneath the memorial and visit the Underground Visitor Centre where you can discover various tales about the victims as well as about the infamous concentration camps where they lost their lives.
Tiergarten and Potsdamer Platz

For a peaceful holiday in Berlin an apartment near the Tiergarten is a good choice.
Potsdamer Platz is an essential spot to visit for shopaholics and art lovers a like. Described as the old heart of Berlin the area underwent a major redevelopment after reunification with DaimlerChrysler headquarters and Sony Center key pieces of architecture in the zone. You can even take a trip up Europe´s fastest elevator to gain a bird´s-eye-view over the city lying below from Potsdamer Platz´s Panoramic Viewpoint. The Kulturforum is Berlin´s cultural plaza which is home to the Berlin Philharmonic as well as the Gemaldegalerie, a collection of European paintings which dates from the 13th to 18th centuries. If the main aim of your short stay in Berlin is to get a taste for the culture of the city then this is the place for you.
A city once divided, the Berlin Wall caused segregated until 1989 whenever it was finally brought down, however the main checkpoint still remains a popular tourist attraction; Checkpoint Charlie. Visit the Wall Memorial and learn about some of the stories that this divide caused. Much of the wall has been demolished, however if you want to get a taster of what it looked like, a maintained piece of the structure remains in the East Side Gallery. Now painted with original art works, the gallery is located between Ostbahnhof and Oberbaumerbrücke and is a must see stop on any city break to the German capital. Friedrichstrasse is also the ideal area to visit to experience the Berlin nightlife with bars, restaurants and nightclubs all present in this lively but laid-back zone.
Gendarmenmarkt is a beautiful location which is home to architectural gems such as the Concert House as well as the French and German Cathedrals.
