The main boulevard in Berlin, Unter den Linden was once the bridle path, where Elector John George of Brandenburg used to reach his hunting grounds. In 1647, the path became a boulevard of linden trees, from which it got its name, meaning “under the linden trees”.

From Pariser Platz to the Schlossbrücke Bridge, Unter den Linden is the centerpiece of the Old Berlin. Its rising splendor during the XVIII and XIX century included the construction of the Zeughaus, the Friedrichstadt, the Prinzessinnenpalais, the Kronprinzenpalais, the Opera House, the Palace for Prince Heinrich -current Humboldt University-, St. Hedwig's Cathedral, the Staatsoper, the Academy Library and the Berliner Dom.

The linden trees were chopped down during WWII –following Hitler’s orders- and replanted in the 1950s. During the 1960s, buildings damaged during the war were restored and reconstructed. Unter den Linden slowly acquired its current identity as an iconic boulevard in central Mitte district.
