Thinking of going here with the Missus to celebrate turning the big 3 – 0 in December. Any recommendations on things to see/do/eat/buy/touch/smell/avoid/sit on etc.

Hire a bike. Berlin’s a great city for cycling… and you don’t lay your life on the line in the way you do in London.

Cycle down Unter den Linden at 2am. You’ll have it more or less to yourself.

Go drinking in Neukölln. Drinkeries galore. Hipster heaven.

Eat cake at Sowohl Als Auch. Yum.

I’ve had very good reports from friends who have stayed at the Circus Hotel and at the Circus Hostel

I would recommend finding place to stay through airbnb.com You can get authentic local experience and cheaper than hotel or you get more for the same price. I spent several days in a similar setting near Munchen this summer and it was amazing.

Can’t remember the bus number, but when I was last in Berlin I was recommended to take a Bus that is a regular city bus, but goes exactly where sightseeing tours would take you. They are nice doubledeckers like in London. So you see the same for just the fraction of cost and if you get in the buss at the first stop you might be lucky to get in the front seat on the second floor and get a better view that driver.

Cheers Placdarms,

that bus idea sounds like a winner. We did the same with the tram system in Munchen last year. Just a few bucks and you get to wind your way all around the city. It was awesome.

As for accommodation, I normally book with Agoda as it has a great review system and good clear pricing. I have tried AirBnb in the past and it can be a lot cheaper but on all three occasions I really felt like I was getting under the feet of the owners. I much prefer staying in a hotel where we are free to rock up hammered with a half empty bottle of champagne at 4 in the morning without the guilt trip of waking up our delightful hosts.

The buses are the 100 & 200.

You can download an audio tour to listen to on your iPod here.

Boat tours on the Spree or round the lakes are pretty cool too.
