A 23-year-old Kildare woman has died after falling from a seventh floor window in Berlin. 

The Irish tourist was fatally injured in the incident on Tuesday night that happened on Wilhelmstrasse in Berlin Mitte.

A female resident of the building who found the woman alerted emergency services at around 4.20am local time.

Despite receiving medical treatment, efforts to revive her were unsuccessful.

A spokesperson for the fire department said a number of young people were staying in the apartment at the time.

It is understood three other Irish people were present in the building at the time and are now receiving pastoral care from the authorities, a spokesperson for the Berlin Fire Brigade said.

German police say the cause of the fall is not yet known. They are investigating the incident as is customary but do not suspect a crime has been committed.

The Department of Foreign Affairs says it is "aware of the case and providing consular assistance."
