Palais Varnhagen was designed by David Chipperfield, the internationally acclaimed British architect. The highlight of the 54 elegant salon apartments and penthouses is the generously designed living areas with ceiling heights of over 3 metres.
The building brings back the typical Berlin salon culture when intellectuals, artists and industrialists met in stately premises to exchange views and opinions. One of the figures in Berlin was Rahel Varnhagen who the Palais Varnhagen was named after. She invited many famous people such as Prince Louis Ferdinand of Russia to her 'literary salon' at Franzosische Strasse 20 until the mid 1920s.
The Gendarmenmarkt, the Lafayette department store on Friedrichstrasse, the Brandenburg Gate, the recently re-opened 'Staatsoper Unter den Linden' and Museum Island are only a few minutes away on foot.
Mitte (German for "middle") is located in the central part of Berlin along the Spree River.
Mitte is indeed Berlin's centre and the life force of the city. Here you will find many of the city's most famous tourist attractions including historical landmarks, monuments, memorials, shopping districts, museums or galleries.
The Brandenburg Gate, The Reichstag Dome, Berlin TV Tower, The Berlin Wall are all must-see historical sites.
Museum Island is home to a number of Berlin's best museums and there are countless art galleries in Mitte due to an influx of artists moving here after the fall of the wall.
The district contains a number of Berlin's best shopping locations for everything from high-end fashion houses to your everyday brands. These include Friedrichstrasse, quite possibly Berlins most famous shopping strip with the famous Galeries Lafayette. Alexanderplatz brims with stores and Hackescher Markt is great for boutique shops.
