What you need to know about Mitte
Mitte is more than just the centre and heart of the city. It is also the cradle where Berlin was born, growing from a small settlement founded along the River Spree in the thirteenth century. Mitte has always cultivated its own distinctive character. Not only does it embody Berlin as an open world city more than any other borough, but it also impressively reflects the city’s chequered history. Where once the Prussian kings ruled, a new forum for art, culture and science has emerged in the heart of Mitte, the Humboldt Forum. With its collections and exhibitions, it stands for an equal dialogue of world cultures. Together with the Museum Island, the new cultural center of Berlin will be created.
