Pariser Platz, one of the city’s finest addresses, is the square directly in front of the Brandenburg Gate. The Quadriga on the Brandenburg Gate looks out onto Pariser Platz. To the east, Pariser Platz leads into Unter den Linden.
Many important people used to live on Pariser Platz. For example, Hitler’s architect Albert Speer was so impressed by the ambience of Pariser Platz that he lived here. Painters and artists such as Max Liebermann also lived on Pariser Platz.
Today, banks and the American embassy have settled around Pariser Platz. The famous Hotel Adlon is located at the end of Pariser Platz and the beginning of the street “Unter den Linden”.
