    Bahnhof Friedrichstrasse

    Bahnhof Friedrichstrasse is not so interesting today as was during the times when Berlin was divided and this was a very specific S-bahn station. Although the city was divided by the wall, the undergound links weren't totally cut off and some lines of the Western part of the city were going under the Eastern part of the city. You could even change trains there - exactly at Friedrichstrasse station. Of course, it soon became the most heavily guarded train station in Europe.

    This was one of the main border crossing entrances to East Germany, and nearby building that stands opposite the train station is named "Palace of Tears" - the Tranenpalast. As visitors from the West had to leave the East by midnight, this Palace saw many tears of people saying goodbye to their relatives, friends or lovers.

    Friedrichstrasse, Berlin

    Friedrichstrasse is one of the main streets of Berlin. Here you will find famous shopping centers, such as Galleries Lafayette and Quartier 207.

    The crossing of Friedrichstrasse and Unter den Linden is considered to be the real center of Berlin.
