Berlin State Comments

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.
Berlino -- 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!
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!
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.
We found Berlino 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.
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.
