This wide, bright, buzzing street stretches its lime tree- and café-lined way across the very centre of Berlin's splendid Old Town, beginning at the Pariser Platz in front of the iconic, imposing Brandenburg Gate and ending at the neoclassical, sculpture-topped Schlossbrucke. The broad central section is pedestrianised and draws thousands of visitors and locals alike past some of Berlin's most famous buildings (such as the State Opera, St. Hedwig's Cathedral, the German History Museum and the State Library) as well as some famous, historic hotels and restaurants and grand shops. The original lime trees were cut down for firewood during the Second World War, but were replaced soon afterward, just as Frederick William the Great Elector had intended them to grow, along the route to his favourite piece of hunting land in 1647.
