Frankfurt is a little bit quicker by train (3,5-5 hours rather than 5-7) and you can see times etc. at www.bahn.de (click on international guests up top for English).

Berlin is a very good introduction to Germany though. No quaintness but the history of East and West of course.

You could of course also go somewhere closer to the Netherlands, like to Aachen or the Rhine Gorge with Bacharach, Boppard etc.

As for airlines:

Other German budget airlines don't do the Netherlands it seems.

RE: getting there

by johnfrompalatineil

How long will you be staying in Germany?, how many destinations?, and how many travel days?

If just one destination, I highly recommend Air Berlin. Great discount airline, we flew from Bergamo to Dusseldorf and return during WC. Cheaper and faster than train.

If multiple destinations, I would recommend getting a German Railpass. Individual tickets are rather expensive especially from Berlin. You also might consider a night train.

Like the previous VT'er stated, Berlin would be a much better destination especially if you have any interest in history. If you do go to Berlin, I highly recommend you take the walking tour with Brewers Berlin Walking Tours. Preston was/is a pretty cool dude. Here's the link: http://www.brewersberlintours.com/

As far as Hostels, we stayed at A&O Hostel/Hotel Mitte during the World Cup, I would recommend its' sister Hostel though (location) A&O Hostel Am Zoo. Another nice hostel where we watched Germany beat up on Sweden is Circus in Mitte.

Germanwings and HLX are also low-cost carriers. You might want to check them out and you can compare prices. Frankfurt is nearer to the Netherlands than Berlin.
I stayed in Berlin for almost 3 months and I really loved the city.
If you opt to go to Berlin, check out the Brandenburger Tor (especially at night!), and you can walk around then you'll find the Reichstag. Siegesaeule is also within sight. In Alexanderplatz you'll find the Fernseh Turm, and there's also a bike rental there, you might want to try biking around too. :)
And don't miss the Berliner Dom and Gedaechtniskirche. :)
Viel Spass!

Travel Tips for Berlin

The inhumanity of the Berlin...

by Pegasus74

The inhumanity of the Berlin Wall and scenes of many daring escape attempts are well documented in the Museum Haus Am Checkpoint Charlie, located along Friedrichstrasse between Zimmerstrasse and Kochstrasse. About East Berliners abseiled off buildings, swam across the Spree, waded through sewers or simply threw themselves over it. And when escape was made more impossible by fortifications improved with mines, searchlights and more guards and dogs, they tried in innovative ways, to make individual reunification. The conclusion depicts moments of emancipation and liberation, created by the people of East Germany for the people of East Germany! The nearby 'Charlie' checkpoint between the American and Soviet sectors of Berlin once served as a crossing point for the permitted ones. Whereas the less popular 'Alpha' was located at the autobahn checkpoint of Helmstedt and 'Bravo' was assigned to the checkpoint near Potsdam.

Telephone

Public phone booths stand on every street corner and require a telephone card, which are sold at post-offices and most press-shops.

Moabit Prison

by Nemorino

This is one of the more famous prisons in Germany.

It was built in the years 1877–1881 as the Royal Detention Prison in the District of Moabit and is now what the British would call a Listed Building, meaning a building that is protected from demolition because of its "special architectural or historic interest".

There have been times when the Moabit Prison was mentioned constantly in the German news media, for instance when suspected terrorists were detained there while awaiting trial, or in the 1990s after German reunification when two former leaders of the defunct German Democratic Republic, Erich Honecker and Eugen Krenz, were imprisoned there because of their role in ordering the many shootings at the Berlin Wall and the fortified border that used to divide East and West Germany.

Drinks and liquors

by matcrazy1 about Getränke Hoffmann

Getränke Hoffmann was a chain drink and liquor store. There was limited but quite good choice for budget travelers looking for mineral water, juices, beer, wine, champagne or vodka. Mango-Nektar (quite good if you like mango) or choose among numerous German beers and wines. Reasonable or low prices.

Yellow Tram

by croisbeauty

The public transportation is organized in a fascinating way which enables quick moves from one to another side of the city. I bought one day ticket, which cost me 5 euros, valid for tram, bus and metro in all directions and 24 hours without limitations. The tram runs mostly through, what was once, Eastern Berlin and it is very fast and punctual. Most of the stops have displays which indicates line numbers and expecting time of its arivals, which is very helpful.
