Berlin on Sunday evening

by SaschaSER

Hello

Please, if someone can help me and sugest where I can spend my free time on Sunday evening in Berlin? Is that Postdamer platz or Alex platz? I need coffie bars, fast food and restarurants, wi-fi, maybe cinema, open shops... until 23.00 in evening, and all in one place. :)

Danke.

Definitely *NOT* Alexanderplatz.

I'd suggest the area between Kulturbrauerei and Kollwitzplatz:

Take the U2 (terminus: Pankow) to Eberswalder Strasse (5 min from alexanderplatz). Kulturbrauerei is the yellowish building with the tower. Everyone knows where Kollwitzplatz or Kulturbrauerei are.

Cinema is inside Kulturbrauerei, WiFi, caffee bar, restaurants are both inside and around Kulturbrauerei.

> open shops...
Shops are closed on Sundays. With a few exceptions like the shops in the Hauptbahnhof (main train station).

Thank you for replays, it is very helpful.
I thought to go on Postdamer platz, last show at IMAX is at 21.30, and, if I remember well, there are few fast food restaurants and it has some coffie bars.
I forgot to say that I need something that is not very far away from Brandenburg tor.

Kulturbrauerei / Kollwitzplatz aren't far from Brandenburg Gate. Potsdamer Platz of course is significantly closer, but first and foremost the place is different. I for one would rather spend my Sunday night at a cosier place than Potsdamer Platz. It's probably a matter of taste.

Aditionally
- Area around Hackescher Markt/Oranienburger Straße (including cinema and some small shops selling basic stuff like food, drinks, cigarettes and magazines, they're called "Spätkauf" or, short, Späti here)
- Simon-Dach-Straße and Boxhagener Platz area (including - small - cinema and Spätis)
- Potsdamer Platz, but no shops and only tourists

Re: Berlin on Sunday evening

Hackescher Markt/Oranienburger Straße is not far away from Brandenburg gate (2 s-bahn stops or 20 minutes walk). And definitely nicer than Potsdamer Platz. Except you're into modern architecture ;)
So, I personally would recommend that. There are all in alle three cinemas (one in Hackesche Höfe, one directly next to it in Haus Schwarzenberg and one in Tacheles@ Oranienburger Straße).

Actually, there's a shopping mall.
Other than that I agree. Forgot about the small cinema at Hackesche Höfe.

oh, yes, I wanted to write that there are no shops open on sunday at potsdamer platz.

Travel Tips for Berlin

Ghost Stations (Geisterbahnhofe)

by nicolaitan

The Berlin Wall divided the transit system as well as the rest of the city and most public trains not confined to one sector stopped and reversed direction at the nearest stop to the wall on each side. Three train lines from the west passed for short distances through portions of East Berlin but were not allowed to stop. These stations were heavily guarded and dimly lit and became known as ghost stations, a term now in use worldwide (New York City has several, the most famous the City Hall station). In return for keeping important routes intact, East Berlin received rentals for use of the tracks. West Berlin maps described them as "stations at which the trains do not stop". East Berlin subway maps did not include these. One S-Bahn stop straddling the border for a West Berlin train had entrances west of the wall but those east of the wall were closed. Transfers were possible at Friedrichstrasse but exit was not. All in all there were 16 such stations although East German trains passed through and stopped at some of them.
The most famous of these is the Unter den Linden station pictured. It has been left with its original pale green walls and original signage as it was during the period of the division as a reminder. The ghost stations lasted the entire 28 years of the wall but some were reopened within two days of the fall. The first was Jannowitzbrucke on 11 Nov 1989 and the last Potsdamer Platz in 1992 after an extensive reconstruction.

anniversaries

by blackbirdxx

When you are in Berlin check the radio or tv-news, newspapers or programme-magazines about historical anniversaries. Often there are public fireworks, parades or airshows.
The photo below shows an historical "Rosinenbomber" of the US-Airlift in a in a 60-years- anniversary-flightshow over the officially closed airport Tempelhof in May 2009.

Schloss Sans Souci

by challenger

Schloss Sans Souci (Castle “Without Care”) was King Frederick the Great’s amazing summer residence in which he received a lot of his enlightened visitors such as Voltaire.

The Castle is absolutely splendid in its design and it as well as the surrounding gardens are quite obviously inspired by Versailles. One of the more quaint structures on the grounds is the Chinese Tea House which you definitely shouldn’t miss. Inside the castle you are surrounded by some very over the top examples of rococo design.

Sans Souci is located in Potsdam: It can be reached via the S1 from Berlin. Once in Potsdam you will need to hop on a bus to the castle. Just follow the crowds.

Prior to unification, this part of Berlin belonged to the East and some of the strange leftovers from former Socialist work ethic can still be found in the Castle’s opening hours: No matter how overrun the whole place may be in the summer time, the ticket office will take a break between 12:30-13:30 and will very grumpily remind you of it, should you decide to queue up just shortly before the start of it. There are also only German language tours available through the castle, though most of the other visitors will be able to receive handouts in their native languages prior to the start of the tour.

Baumkuchen

by Rekap about For example Leysieffer

You can buy Baumkuchen (see below) in many different shops, particulary in December. Other places to look include KaDeWe and fancy bakeries. Baumkuchen is a delicious type of cake. It gets its name from the tree-like rings you find when you cut it open. Original Baumkuchen is plain or sugar-glazed, but I prefer mine covered in chocolate (preferably dark, but you can also get it with milk chocolate).

My family in the US has come to love Baumkuchen so much that they're furious whenever I don't bring some for them when I visit. Baumkuchenspitzen are small pieces of Baumkuchen, generally dipped in chocolate and sold in bags or boxes; they are much easier to transport than entire cakes. You can buy very cheap and good Baumkuchen at the discount supermarket Aldi in winter for about 2.50. Otherwise, it depends on where you buy and the size you choose, but it generally tends to be expensive. You can get everything from tiny cakes to huge towers.
