The Friedrichstrasse is a legendary street in central Berlin.
Friedrichstrasse (Friedrichstraße) runs from the northern part of the old Mitte district (north of which it is called Chausseestraße) to the Hallesches Tor in the district of Kreuzberg.
It forms important junctions with the east-western axes, most notably with Leipziger Straße and Unter den Linden. The U6 U-Bahn line runs underneath.
During the Cold War it was bisected by the Berlin Wall and was the location of Checkpoint Charlie.
The downtown area is known for its posh boutiques and department stores and exclusive offices and coffee shops.
