|General Info:||We love Berlin, we’ve been many times and more will go…
Berlin is art, design, history, events, music, pubs, beers, parks, shops and clubs.
Berlin has 2 main airports: Tegel and Schönefeld. The good thing about Tegel is that it’s only 20/25 min from city centre. So it has always been our preference for a short week-end.
|Day||Area||What to Do|
|1||London – Berlin||Our journey to Berlin started in London.
After work we took our flight to Berlin Tegel. It’s just under 2 hours flight…so not too bad.
To get to the Hotel in Mitte, we took the bus DB-BAHN from airport. It takes around 25 min to get to Washingtonplatz/Hauptbahnhof and 10 min taxi to the hotel.
|2 – 3||Berlin||Here some ideas of walks we’ve done in Berlin…Walking in Historical Mitte, to visit Neues Museum to see the iconic bust of the Egyptian queen Nefertiti; Altes Museum (designated UNESCO World Heritage Site); Pergamon Museum for the famous Gate of Babylon and Pergamon altar; and Berlin Cathedral, Statue of Marx and Engels among the rest.East Berlin walking trail, from the Reichstag (Parliament) to the Jewish Museum, passing trough Brandenburg Gate, Holocaust Memorial and Checkpoint Charlie.West Berlin walking trail, for Potsdamer Platz, Sony Center and Berlin Philharmonic.If you are into Techno music as we are, this is the best place to go: Berghain/Panorama Bar widely considered one of the world’s best nightclubs. There’s also a men’s-only club on the first level. Most of the parties are extremely long: Friday night events usually wrap up early Saturday afternoon, but Saturdays typically run well into Monday morning. The most notorious aspect of the club is its door policy. The doormen, the famous Sven will decide randomly if you can access. If you try to take a pic, they will escort outside immediately…so watch out!|
|3||Berlin – London||Sadly back to London, but we will go back…as always!|
