Transport fromAirport.

by naismith7

Hi I am arriving in Berlin on 26 March at the Schoenefeld Airport, what is the best and cheapest way to get in to the city centre.

Re: Transport fromAirport.

by hexelein

The train / S Bahn is the easiest and quickest way to get from Schönefeld to the city.

Travel Tips for Berlin

Living history

by sinoda

Berlin is not just Berlin, Berlin is a living historical legend. Try to understand the last three and four decades this city and its inhabitants have been put through and admire the vitality and joy you encounter. You still may see a harsh contrast between the former West and East, but eventually these differences wil be equalised. Is this good or bad?

So if you're strolling around the streets, plazas and shops be reminded of the spirit of this exceptional metropole. Try to grasp a tiny bit of this pulsative energy, seek for more than just superficial moments, instead experience the city behind its facade. Enjoy 'Frühstück' in a small café off the beaten path, talk to your table-neighbour, ask him/her about his/her feelings about the city. Get aquainted, learn about the true city, behind its tourist-curtain.

I.e. it's only 12 years since Berlin's unification, this is living history.

Berlin and the King of the Mountains

by Kakapo2

Also when reporting about the Tour de France 1987 I got aware of the fact that Berlin has elevations that are called mountains. I had not known this before. But as the Tour organisers want to give out all the different jerseys – including the polka dot jersey for the King of the Mountains – they also successfully included two “mountains” into the first stage. (In a later Tour the culmination point of a bridge was the “mountain” and the jersey was awarded to the German sprinter Marcel Wüst LOL)

At Grunewaldturm the incline was 3.7 degrees, to gain 30 metres in altitude, and at Nikolskoe from where you have a nice view over the river Havel and Pfaueninsel, the riders had to force their bikes over 3.4 degrees and an altitude gain of 40 metres…

As Berlin people are famous for their humour they also joked nicely about this mountain stage. They said their Tour mountain was not 1000 metres high but (the incline) 1000 metres long ;-)

And sure, as we are talking mountains let’s get to Berlin’s superlatives. The highest “peak” is Großer Müggelberg with 114.7 metres. It is located in the tree-covered Müggelberge in the district of Treptow-Köpenick. It clearly dominates Kleiner Müggelberg which is only 88 metres high. Also the Teufelsberg in the suburb of Grunewald is 114.7 metres above sea-level.

My husband “climbed” Kreuzberg in Victoriapark in the suburb of Kreuzberg – 66 metres above sea-level. But he had to walk quite a lot for that!

My biggest climb could have been up to the Soviet Memorial in Treptower Park ;-) - see photo 2.

Highrise buildings do not count - there are hundreds of metres higher than the highest peak - and their height does not even start at sea level!

Olympic Stadium Berlin

by jeoren

In the Olympic Stadium in Berlin will be played footballmatches during the World Championship Football in 2006.

The stadium dates from the Olympic Games of the '30s and is renovated for the big event of next year. It's an imposant building and easy reachable by metro.

Europa-Center

by aliante1981

Europa-Center was Berlinýs first skyscraper, measuring 86 metres high, and it was built between 1963 and 1975. Today, itýs a shopping, people watching, eating, drinking, entertainment, and gambling paradise with dozens of shops, restaurants, entertainment facilities and a casino. You should not really miss "Die Uhr der fliessenden Zeit" - or The Clock of Passing Time, in English -, a water clock situated in the courtyard.

I'd rather go to Tacheles...

by alza about Ganymed Brasserie

I feel somewhat obliged to say a few words about the places I got pics of... but they were often the ones our tour guide obsessed about, and he obsessed about everything related to 'American' Berlin, post-war etc.

So I saw other places but too quickly, and in many cases, I only realised where I was once I'd left. That happens when you don't know a place. The only solution is to go back. Yippee! I'm sure Berlin will be more fun the second time around.

The Ganymed Brasserie was a hang-out for American soldiers. We heard some story about how cheap their beer was at Ganymed's until 1989. They had great living allowances apparently. Suddenly, American forces were removed from Berlin and these guys lost their privileges. Or something like that. I wasn't interested enough to understand.

Gimme the Kneipen culture anytime. Somewhere that's a ritual for Berliners to hang out in.

Counter-culture is alive in Berlin and as much as I like a good brasserie, I wish I'd had more time to see 'the spirit of 68' :-) even if it has turned quite tame with time... like old hippies have :-)
Tacheles is the symbol of alternative culture in Berlin. I walked in and across it in daytime, saw the strange backyard, had a drink. Next time, I'll go at night.
