Berlin State


Berlin State Comments

The Alternative Berlino 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.
If you do nothing else in Berlino, 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!
The Schöens Wochenende (Happy Weekend) train ticket is an amazing deal if you have more time than money. For only €28 up to five people can travel all weekend on local trains (that's €28 total for up to 5 people!). If you wanted to, you can travel all the way from Berlino to Switzerland on nothing but local trains (but it takes about 10 train transfers and 10 hours to do it). Buy a pass at any German train station.
Forget the doner kebab, try the curry wurst!! We ate it for four days in a row and finally had our stomachs pumped, but we would be lying if we said we didn't enjoy it. Berlino is affordable for back packers. It's different! Enjoy it!
Berlino is the ideal city for going out and party, because it's full of attractive pubs and discos. It's not a beautiful city but it has a lot of history, lots of museums, and lots of things to do and see. Berlin is very cheap too (at least comparing with other European cities) so you can get cheap and good accommodations, cheap meals and drinks. Museums are cheap too, especially if you have your student card. I'd recommend visiting the Cinema Museum, next to Potsdammer platz.
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 Berlinoer Dom.
