Your first night is Walpurgis night, when youths play more or less harmless pranks, and Berlin is a bit notorious for "celebrations" to become slightly rough. This does not apply to the entire city but to certain quarters, Kreuzberg for example. Ask at your hotel if there are any areas nearby that they recommend you to avoid that evening.

Re: Berlin - April 30, 2010 - May 10, 2010

Kathrin is right and I advice you to watch out: IF and When you see any kind of riot or civil unrest on May 1`st don`t stay there and watch! Often tourists are arrested because they didn`t leave the site of criminal action. If you stay in the outskirts or take a trip to Potsdam, everything is cool, but on these days (April 30`th and May 1`st) Kreuzberg or Friedrichshain are dangerous.

That's right, I completely forgot that Walpurgis night is a dangerous time to be in certain area in a big city. I was only thinking of it as some traditional, harmless pranks in the villages here.

Travel Tips for Berlin

The Berlin Bear - the city's mascot

by jenniferchin

March 22nd has been set aside as "The day of the Berliner Baer". It was on that date in 1280, that the bear first appeared on an official seal of the City of Berlin I see them everywhere in Berlin ... Big and Small ones .. but all oh so cute !! :-))

Berlin Wall

by Audrey118

Just imagine one day you woke up from your sleep in the morning, and finds that your friends, neighbours, loved ones are across a thick wall - and that you cannot see them anymore. this is what happened when the Berlin wall was built.

The wall is not circular but it is sort of zig zag around the city. Some parts are no longer around - but there is a marking on the pavement with red brick.

Some places had the wall which is 30-foot-tall concrete thing, with barbed wire and a killing zone of tank traps. But in others, especially up in the French Sector, it was just the backs of those buildings. There are lots of vendors selling souveniers claiming it is a piece of the broken down wall...just do not be gullible...it is very unlikely you get to see even crumbs!!!

Saunas and swimming atop Berlin

by steedappeal

This is a wonderful, relaxing sauna, swimming and spa center atop the Europa Center with a inspiring view of central Berlin.

All activities are "mixed" in the Northern European sense of things so you will run into men as well as women completely naked (that is why it is so relaxing since it's no big thing).

Here are some tips to enjoy your visit:

There are separate changing rooms for men as well as for women. You are given a locker key which you can wear on your wrist. For valuables I would recommend you use the special lockers (place your locker key and money in here) near the main restaurant since you will need your wallet to make food and drink purchases.

Essential to take a cleansing shower first!

If you are ONLY interested in swimming then you may wear a bathing suit in the swimming pool OTHERWISE bathing attire is NOT allowed in any of the saunas. I saw some women with swim suits but NO men wearing them.

The pool has a few jet-stream "hot spots" and make a point to swim in the outdoor area near to all the sunbathers since the view is terrific and there are two waterfalls at opposite ends, too.

There are dry saunas as well as wet (my favorite) steam rooms. These Haman-like rooms vary in their intensity and fragrance depending on which one your are in. There is even a dry sauna on the lower level that looks like a Finnish lakeside cabin.

The whirlpool baths rotate every half hour so why not visit all of them? There are basically two almost-identical sides to the sauna/whirlpool area (originally when the center opened 39+ years ago men were segregated from women).

Spa treatments (including massage) are offered on another floor which I did not visit. Bring your own rubber sandals, towel, bathrobe (a must) and you will save on the admission price.

Otherwise, you can rent the "complet" package at 29.80 euros as of April 2009. Late night admission appears to be a little bit less in price.

Unfortunately, they do not translate their website into English. Except for the restaurant waitress not much English was spoken BUT don't be shy about asking the regulars to guide you through this wonderful place.

If you've got kids or like me...

by greentara

If you've got kids or like me still haven't quite gotten around to growing up yet this would have to be the best playground I've ever laid eyes upon. It's an ecolgically correct playground built in 1990 and continually improved upon with activites for kids. There's also rabbits and guinea pigs, don't you just love the sound they make?
This place makes your imagination run wild!

Hidden under a restaurant...

by Thomas_K about Privatclub

Well... it's a small (not tiny, but also not really big) club with good music (most of the time) and a nice restaurant or pub above, where you can warm up with a beer or two. But don't go there if you're on a low budget... depending on the date, the admission may be 6€ or less (maybe also free sometimes, just call&ask), the drinks aren't too cheap either. dress... code... what? Well, no Prince Harry costumes please.
