I have never been to Berlin but one of the places on my list. What places of interest can you recommend there?

hi there, I did a bike trip with my Dad to Berlin once. from the east of Germany, which is 500km away. It was lots of fun. be sure to vivit the Wannensee!! there is a youth hostel right at the lake. and go onto the Bundestag. I mean, you can go on top of that building and have a wonderful view over Berlin and the best is... it's for free. but I guess they're just open until ten in the evening. But when its already dark it's wonderful to see all those lights of Berlin. Oh, and if you want some history stuff, go to the museum at the Wannensee, it's a really interesting place to learn more about german history (and it's also in english).

Thanks, Stern - I will make a note of your recommendations. It sounds a really interesting city.

You really should Mike. It really is an interesting city.

oh, i just remember that there is one public bus that drives through the city and passes almost every main sight you should see, like Brandenburger Tor, SIegessäule... I just forgot which number it had. something like 101.

I went to Berlin for the first time last November, heres my blog http://uk.geocities.com/julwis_uk/Berlin/Berlin.htm
I took one of the walking tours, http://www.berlinwalks.de/ and that was fantastic! Id highly recommend it, just wish I could have stayed longer.

The only problem I found was that a lot of the museums, in the former east, are in various states of renovation, especially the Pergamon, which is now closing til around 2009!
Re: Berliiiin... by Stern on 23 February 2006 10:06am
julwis, where did you get all those informations your using on your blog from?
Re: Berliiiin... by julwis on 23 February 2006 10:51am
Hi Stern
I got the info from what I could recall from the guide on the walking tour.
