Mitte.

Here are things to see in Mitte the center of Berlin by distance.

1- Victory Column 

I do not have a photo of the Column which is also known as the Siegessaule, but sometimes Mitte would have festivals along from the Brandenburg Gate to the Victory Column.

2- Brandenburg Gate

The 18th century arch of Berlin. One of the most popular landmarks. Located at the junction of Unter den Linden and Ebertstrabe. It was built between 1788 to 1791 as a sign of peace commissioned by King Frederick. The gate suffered much damage in World War II and so was last restored in 2000.

3- The field of Stelae
