Mitte is the centre of Berlin since the fall of the wall. The GDR past has been largely shaken off and numerous young companies, agencies and exclusive shops have settled here.

Mitte is not only in-district, it is also the origin of Berlin and a large part of the capital's landmarks and sights. The district is home to the creative scene as well as countless leisure and nightlife opportunities, especially around Oranienburger Straße.

The Alexanderplatz, the centre of City Ost, is the counterpart of City West around Breitscheidplatz and Kurfürstendamm in Charlottenburg. It is to be redesigned in the near future - some new high-rise buildings are to be built here one day.
