Berlin May22-24

by timewaster

Is there some major event or convention going on during May 22 - May24 in Berlin?
The hotel prices seems higher that weekend and some hotels are all booked up.

Ascension, public holiday on Thursday, thus long weekend and peak travel time.

Thursday, 21. May 2009 is Ascension Day, a public holiday.
Which makes this a long weekend as many have free/take a day off on Friday.
And as normal weekend is too short for a Berlin visit, thus the run on such a long weekend.

Travel Tips for Berlin

Take a tour of the entire city...

by susanm3860

Take a tour of the entire city and go through the Brandenburg Gate. So much history and to go through it and imagine what it must have been like during the war.There is so much left untouched since the second world war and it's just amazing to see. There is a section of the Wall left standing as a reminder of what happened and it's awe inspiring to see. You get a good feeling knowing you are free to come and go as you please. Being able to visit Berlin in good times of freedom and standing where history was made. Going to downtown Berlin at night and seeing all the shops on the KuDamm and just taking in the nightlife there.

River Spree.

River Spree.

Berlin AttractionsBerlin is now, officially, the capital of Germany and many major German corporations are in the process of relocating their headquarters to the city of political decision making. New buildings, built by world-class architects have sprouted up throughout the 'New Berlin' and although much of its historical heritage was destroyed during the second world war, Berlin has maintained a cultural richness, sustaining a fascinating and diverse selection of museums and monuments. Still a city of two sides, the west embraces alternative lifestyles with a vivacious nightlife and inherent atmosphere of mounting excitement while the east is a journey through the remains of the socialist experiment, a living breathing museum of utilitarian buildings and hidden delights. Beyond the main thoroughfares there are lively bars, all night entertainment and interesting little cafés.

( NOTE: IT is one stop of bus 100, you can arrive this place easily by bus 100.) Walk aroud River Spree to look aroud this beautifl city which have heavy history.

The Missing House

by diocletianvs

This is a nice approach to mark the void created by the WWII bombs. In one of the side streets near Oranienburger strasse the place where the residential building stood untill 1943 was marked in 1990 by french artist Christian Boltanski. What he did is simple and powerful at the same time - he simply put plates on side walls of the surviving buildings recalling the names, dates and professions of the former inhabitants of the house that was destroyed by the bombings.

Watching the movies about World War II with Germans as the Bad Guys makes it rather easy to forget that Berlin (and most of other German towns) suffered fierce bombings during the war and while the officials had their bunkers where they were hiding it is the ordinary citizens that suffered very much losing almost everything overnight.

Dolls, Dolls, Dolls... and some Bears

by Kakapo2 about Die Puppenstube, Nikolaiviertel

This is a most fantastic shop in Nikolaiviertel. Even if you do not intend to buy a doll, just browse through the shop like through a museum. The dolls are simply wonderful, from historic editions to the most modern girls, plus a big selection of dolls’ clothes and prams.

They store all famous dolls brands like Käte Kruse, Zapf, Schildkröt, Philip Heath, Götz and so on. On their website you find the complete selection of artists, many in limited edition. Be prepared to pay 300 Euro for a bargain… So do not fall in love too fast with any of the dolls before checking your bank account.

Apart from dolls, they sell cute teddy bears, and also Berlin souvenir bears, called Buddy Bears.

Trading hours:
Mon – Sat 10am – 6.30pm, Sun & Public Holidays 11am – 6pm
