Early 20th Century
Friedrichstrass Berlin GERMANY
The Friedrichstraße (German pronunciation: [ˈfʁiːdʁɪçˌʃtʁaːsə]) (lit. Frederick Street)
is a major culture and shopping street in central Berlin,
forming the core of the Friedrichstadt neighborhood
and giving the name to Berlin Friedrichstraße station.
It runs from the northern part of the old Mitte district
(north of which it is called Chausseestraße)
This downtown area is known for its posh real estate market
and the campus of the Hertie School of Governance.
Due to its north-southerly direction,
it forms important junctions with the east-western axes,
and was the location of Checkpoint Charlie.
