Berlin State Hostels


Berlin State


Berlin State Comments

The Schönes-Wochenende-Ticket is now thirty euro, and is only good for one day (on either Saturday or Sunday). It is still good for up to five people and still only for local transport. Döner kebab and curry-wurst were both invented in Berlin, so try them both!
I suggest also going to the DDR Museum -- it's very different than all the other museums, with the exhibits being largely hands on and showing what life was like growing up in the DDR. It's by the river on the Alexanderplatz side of the Berliner Dom.
If you do nothing else in Berlin, make sure you book onto a walking tour. They cost about $12 and in just four hours you have a guide take you to all the main sites around the city. Well worth the money!
Berlin -- probably my favorite city in the world! So much to do and see, and positively steeped in history! The food is excellent, the people are friendly, and the beer is world-class! Don't forget to take a walking tour, only 9 Euro with an ISIC card and well worth the money! After one day (and one night) here, you will never want to leave!
We found Berlin a very safe place, much more than Paris or London. For those like us wh like history there's plenty of things to see and do. Even think to plan a week to spend there. We recommend Deustches Historiches Museum (one full day from opening until closure). Topographie des Terrors. German Resistance Memorial (Stauffenbergstrasse). Deutsch-Russische Museum in Beriln Karlshorst. Sowjetisches Ehrenmal in Treptower Park. Sowjetisches Ehrenmal in Strasse 17 Juni. Reichstag. Checkpoint Charlie. Sachsenhausen concentration camp. Berlin boasts many other interesting places not so directly connected with recent history, a very interesting place.
The Alternative Berlin tour is excellent (if a little slow at time). It is free, you just tip at the end. It takes you to some crazy but great sites you wouldn't know about yourself -- these places don't appear in guidebooks. They meet at Starbucks in Alexanderplatz at 11 a.m. each morning.
