I will be travelling to berlin next week, for 3 days (Thursday night - Friday - Saturday - Sunday Night we will leave). I have been in Berlin once before, it was Oktober 2010. Can you tell me what spots I MUST visit on my 3 day trip? I'm not a partyperson, I like musea and I love German history.
I have been to:
- Checkpoint Charlie;
- The TV tower;
- Sans Soucci;
- Deutsches Historisches museum
- Stasi museum (old archives)
- DDR museum
- East Side Gallery
- The Story of Berlin ( but I got sick and left after 30 minutes :/ )
Danke und freundlichen Grüssen,
Henk de Vries.
No berlinballs? Oh well my experience is somewhat limited, but there's a Stasi museum that isn't archives, but an old prison. And there are tours through old Cold War bunkers:
You are my greatest ally. This is exactly the stuff I'm looking for. Thanks :D
For burgers, go to Burgerium, Revaler Straße near Warschauer Straße. For bulgarian food, visit Primaria, Boxhagener Straße 26. Next to it is a good burger place as well.
And for the best and cheapest Pizza, Pizza-Dach in the Simon-Dach Straße, it's between Revaler and Boxhagener Straße.
How was it? What did you manage to see and was it worth it?
Well the first day we had a groupactivity: Guided tour from Reichstag to Checkpoint Charlie. I have seen most of these places already, but it was a nice tour though. In the evening we ate at some DDR restaurant, Sauerkraut, Kartoffeln und Pork ankle.
On saturday I decided to visit Sachsenhausen in Oranienburg. Then we got dropped of at East Side gallery, but I had seen that already. Then I proceeded to Alexanderplatz by U-bahn to visit the Fahnenladen, Flagworld, but it was closed. Then I travelled to Unter Den Linden, bought a german flag and drank Paulaner Weissen und Berliner Kindlr. Man oh man, these were delicious. Then I had dinner at Mommsen-Eck at the Georgenstrasse. In the evening we visited some strange African/Rasta café at the Oranienstrasse, had a few beers, and went home.
The next day we had to pay an obligatory visit to the Modern Art Museum für Gegenwart. I decided to bail and headed for the Gedenkstätte Berliner Mauer instead :D. S-bahn station Nordbahnhof has a pretty interesting history, being a 'ghost station'. Then I travelled back to the hostel and at 14:00 we left Berlin by bus.
I think I will return someday in the summertime, to visit the Berlin Underground complex and the Flakturm.

Berlin is much bigger than Mitte and Friedrichshain
Please enlighten me.

I have bought these flags in Berlin. Highlight of the trip.
I'm planing my trip to Berlin for march 26th to 31th. Do any of you guys know some cheap hotels where I can get a single room? Hostels are not really an option as I want a room for myself.
Something near or in Neukölln would be nice.
