It mainly is an site where people offer flats to share - but if I remember right, there was also the option to look for flats. Ads are for free, I would recommend to write a little bit more personally than you would do in magazines... Berlin is great, your daughter and friend will love it. And living is not expensive there. As far as I know it starts from 5 € per square metre.
Best Chris.

Travel Tips for Berlin

Ampelmännchen

by sue_stone

One of my favourite things that we saw on our visit to Berlin was the Ampelmannchen. This is the little man shown on pedestrian traffic signals in 'East' Berlin.

The red Ampelmannchen extends his arms to signal 'stop', while the green Ampelmannchen confidently walks off to signal 'go'. Ok, so what makes these different to any other traffic signal you may ask? Well, the little man looks different than in other places….in fact it is even different to those in 'West' Berlin which have the common shape. He looks a bit chubbier than the usual version, though Mr Green does look like he has a real spring in his step.

The East Berlin Ampelmannchen is a tourist attraction in its own right, and a bit of a celebrity as well - apparently it was once used as a character on an East German television program, promoting driver education.

East Side Gallery

by CandS

The Berlin Wall. The East Side Gallery is a wonderful section of the Berlin Wall and has some beautiful murals...

We were there just on dark but I had to take a photo anyway, this one actually turned out quite well considering the circumstances (I only had a VERY small tripod so I had to lay on the ground to get the framing right...)

Some of the murals on the wall are amazing, there was one part of the wall which even seemed to be an autograph area, there were signatures from people all over the world. It was very interesting to read...

Public and modern art, more please!

by matcrazy1

I noticed modern and quite pretty sculptures put on a street at least in a few places of Berlin. Great! I would add more of them. Berlin in contrast to many other European large cities has a lot of empty places to put more of them.

Just one example on my picture. This modern sculpture was put by New National Gallery (Neue Nationalgalerie) at Potsdamer Straße. I have no idea who created this sculpture. E-mail me please if you know.

(6) - The Grove of Honour (Ehrenhain)

by Kakapo2

The Grove of Honour (Ehrenhain) within the Soviet War Memorial in Treptower Park is a huge grassy field in the centre of the whole complex, about 200 or 300 metres long, leading up to the bombastic statue of the soldier with the child. Five iron-cast reiths are placed in this area.

Here, 4800 Soviet soldiers are honoured. But most probably they are not buried under the five burial grounds which are framed by low hedges and each adorned by a flagstone and a big iron-cast laurel reith. The fields are more symbolic. The real burial sites are more probably beside this grove which is bordered by white gravel walkways on both sides of the complex, under the sycamore trees. Another 200 soldiers are buried in the hill of the mausoleum.

On photo 2 you have a perfect view over the five symbolic burial sites, as from the elevated position of the mausoleum.

Location:
Between the streets Puschkinallee and Am Treptower Park, 12435 Berlin-Treptow

Directions:
S-Bahn S41, S42, S8, S85, S9, station Treptower Park
Buses 166, 265, 365, stations Sowjetisches Ehrenmal and Herkomer Straße, also N 65 Klingerstraße and Rethelstraße

So Blau wie ein Engel

by Luchonda about Marlene Bar

Another nice place to enjoy your stay and evenings in Berlin is the
“Marlene Bar” Also part of the InterConti Hotel – Budapester Strasse – Zoo area.
What is fascinating was the collection of pictures decorating the walls
Pictures of Marie Magdelene Dietrich von Losch – better known as
Marlene Dietrich (1901-1992) or Der Blaue Engel (1930 Leisure
