Berlin Mitte - mini local travel guide!

Get to Know the Area:

Berlin Mitte is the central district of Berlin, and is known for its historical significance, vibrant culture, and diverse attractions. "Mitte" means "center" in German, and true to its name, this district is at the heart of Berlin's action. Mitte is home to iconic landmarks, world-class museums, trendy neighbourhoods, and a rich blend of history and modernity.


Why here?!

Our hostel in Berlin Mitte offers a prime location to explore the city's diverse offerings. With its central position, you'll have easy access to famous sights, trendy neighbourhoods, eclectic dining, and vibrant nightlife. Whether you're interested in history, art, or simply soaking up the city's atmosphere, Berlin Mitte has something for everyone.


Our Hidden Gems:

Even though Mitte may be the centre we think we’ve found some hidden gems that provide unique experiences:


  1. Café Cinema: A quirky cafe located near Rosenthaler Platz. This hidden gem combines the love for cinema and coffee, featuring vintage movie screenings and a delightful atmosphere. Relax with a cup of coffee, enjoy a film, and immerse yourself in the artistic vibes.
  2. Hackesche Höfe: Tucked away in a labyrinth of courtyards, Hackesche Höfe is a hidden oasis in the heart of Mitte. This interconnected series of beautifully designed courtyards offers a blend of shops, cafes, restaurants, and art galleries. Explore the unique architecture, discover local boutiques, and soak up the creative energy.


Our Foodie Recommendations:

We can't expect you to eat with us in Belushi's every night, so we’ve added in a couple of local restaurants we personally recommend. 


  1. Monsieur Vuong: A popular Vietnamese restaurant serving delicious and authentic Vietnamese cuisine. From pho to fresh spring rolls, Monsieur Vuong offers flavorful dishes made with high-quality ingredients, creating a culinary journey to Southeast Asia.
  2. Lokal: Celebrates German cuisine with a modern twist. The menu focuses on locally sourced and seasonal ingredients, showcasing the flavors and culinary traditions of Germany. Lokal is a must-visit restaurant for those seeking an authentic and flavorful dining experience in Berlin Mitte.


Our Local Pub/Bar Recommendations:

As long as you start and end the night with us we won’t be too picky about where you end up in the middle. 


  1. Clärchens Ballhaus: A historic ballroom and dance hall turned lively bar. Clärchens Ballhaus offers a unique atmosphere with its nostalgic charm, live music, and dance events. Enjoy a drink and immerse yourself in the spirit of Berlin's nightlife.
