Berlin Mitte North Neighbourhood Guide

The centre of Berlin is divided by the Spree river. Northern Mitte is more laid back with small cafes and boutique retail spaces. It's small enough that everywhere is close and walkable, but at the same time there are enough small streets and side alleys that you can wander a little and get pleasantly lost. The average age of people wandering the streets in Northern Mitte is about half that of those in the South.
