Re: Where to choose an apartment in Berlin for 10 days

Two suggestions:

Deluxe-Apartments:
http://www.schönhaus-appartements.de/

Cheap/ more affordable apartments:
http://www.pension-guesthouse-berlin.de/
(see "2-Zi.-Cityapartments" or "3-Zi.-Ferienwohnung")

Schönhaus-Apartments border Berlin Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg. The latter one is situated in Prenzlauer Berg.
Both, especially the cheaper one, are nicely located with Kulturbrauerei (http://www.kulturbrauerei.de), Kollwitzplatz, Helmholtzplatz, clubs, bars and restaurants nearby. Same goes for public transport.

From Tegel to either of the two apartments takes 40 minutes or less:

Guesthouse
From: Tegel Airport
To: S+U Schönhauser Allee (later choose default option)

I would chose Prenzlauer Berg or Mitte. First one is a lively area, many bars, clubs. Mitte is central. Best Chris.

First of all: i envy you a lot! I love Berlin and spent there 4 wonderful months in 1996! I must agree with the previuous answer: Mitte/Prenzlauerberg are surely the best options (former East Berlin, now living a new lively life!) but I guess Charlottenburg remains the borough where public transportation offer the best option of the city. Do not misunderstand me: Mitte and Prenzlauerberg have great connections as well but I think the area around Zoo still remains the best connected. I'll go to Berlin as well at the end of August and I've choosen a (relatively queit)street near Ku'damm.
If you want some suggestions, my tips were written in Sep. 08. Have a nice trip there and enjoy Germany's capital.

I stayed here last year, 3 minutes from the U-Bahn and lots of great little bars/restaurants and shops on the street.

Travel Tips for Berlin

Treptower Park: Soviet Memorial

by hunterV

Admiring its architecture. Visiting Treptower Park is a must for all Soviet citizens - this is what the hosts told us.
We were taken to the memorial to the Soviet soldiers and officers who had fallen during the battles in and around Berlin in 1945.
It was very impressive to see all those monuments and tombs of the fallen soldiers and officers.
I haven't been there since, but I hope the memorial looks nice now.

Red Town Hall

by Audrey118

Near the Neptune Fountain is the Berlin Governing Town Hall, otherwise known as the Red Town Hall. It was built in 1861-1870 by Waesemann with red brick. Nearby is a Nikolai church and also St Mary Church

Wasserturm

by aeroarce

This is an old watter tower that today is has been inhabited, so they made apartments on it.
It is in a park where the dependences of the water cistern was. on top of the park there is a nice view over the Fernsehenturm.
The area is surrounded with restaurants and terraces, and one of the most important synagoges of berlin, the only one that was not fired during all the Nazi periode due to its location around apartment buildings. On the old Cistern there was a hospital, or first aid house before the WWII that then the Nazis then change to a concentration camp or area. Today is under reforming and will probably held an expotition area.

On the western side of Ebertstraße between Branderburg Gate and Reichstag on the edge of Tiergarten park and on the place where the Belin wall stood, there was a special place to commemorate victims of the Berlin Wall.

Beer, watching people and more...

by matcrazy1 about Yorckschlosschen Club and Bar

I was lucky to eat. drink, listen to the blues concert and meet 3 other VT-ers in Yorckschlosschen.

History and tradition
The Yorckschlosschen (I called it easy Yorck :-) exists under same name for over 100 years now. The club became a real Kreuzberg institution.
It was a rather middle-class corner pub in the 1960s but it increasingly became an artists' watering hole in the early '70s.

Blues and jazz kingdom
Berlin's musicians like to get together there, which is not surprising after almost twenty years of regular live music. Every musician in the city wants to perform there. The emphasis is on traditional jazz, swing and black rhythm'n'blues. You can hear the best in New Orleans jazz, soul and blues there.

Interior
The place is small - the main room contains of small scene (max. for 3-4 musicians), small (large pizza size) tables and bar on the back. There is one more room. On the walls there are numerous old and new pictures of various jazz/blues musicians who played there. Above the scene there was famous New Orleans Jazz club Preservation Hall sign.

People and atmosphere
There were a lot of people of various age: 20 to say 70 inside. This tavern was a true melting pot. It seems that everyone meets here - young and old, poor and rich - and no-one takes exception to anyone else.

Photography inside
Not allowed (as you can see on my picture :-) although I saw one guy taking pictures inside with a flash and I... followed him. They didn't kill me. By the way the ban on photography was written almost on the ceiling and exclusively in German.
