Planning Your Visit
When to go?
Unless you're averse to crowds, visit Berlin over the summer, when the city's relaxed street-life is at its most contagious. Include a Sunday to experience one of the bustling flea markets.
Where to stay?
Every Berlin neighborhood has its own character. Charlottenburg is relatively flash, with Mitte a trendier alternative. Prenzlauer Berg is the city's café-culture capital, populated by young families. Schoeneberg is renowned for its gay clubs and bars, while Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg also provide plenty of nightlife options─most a little rough around the edges!
How to get around?
Berlin is covered by trains, trams, taxis, and buses. Train stations are largely unmanned with machines to buy tickets from. Many tourists mistakenly think the trains are free before being fined €60 by inspectors!
The Berlin WelcomeCard covers public transport in Berlin and Potsdam for 2-5 days, and also provides discounts at many restaurants and attractions, including the Berlin Dungeon.
