Full text: Brasch & Rothenstein's Guide of Berlin

Schloss Platz, the Friedrich and the Leipziger Strasse. Here 
are the most interesting aud lively quarters of the capital; 
the great centres of business and trade; the places of amuse 
ment, the royal palaces, the handsome hotels and cafes; in 
short, this is the heart of Berlin with all its endless sights 
and attractions. All classes of people are met here, the wealthy, 
aristocratic as well as the purely commercial; and strangers, 
in particular, always manage to gravitate towards these parts. 
If the visitor would have a rapid general view of 
the capital, we would advise him to hire a Droschke (cab),

amusements, as well as advice about the best method of 
spending time; here you meet your friends, attend to whatever 
business you may have on hand, and make all necessary 
arrangements as to future intentions.

will now walk straight down the Friedrich-Strasse, the great 
business quarter, to the Linden, the widest and handsomest 
street of Berlin, with its long line of elegant stores, palaces, 
public buildings and other attractions. At the corner of 
Friedrich-Strasse and the Linden is Cafe Bauer, the hand 
somest and most tastefully adorned in the capital; walking 
along to the right and crossing the Charlotten-Strasse you 
come to No. 34, a fine building occupied by the Central-
