Reichstag closed what about the restaurant??
According to the site the Reichstag is closed during our visit (19-21 July)
does this mean the restaurant is also closed or can we see the view from the terrace?
Re: Reichstag closed what about the restaurant??
"For information about the closure of the dome at other times (31 March-4 April, 7-11 July, 21-25 July and 20-24 October 2008), please see our homepage www.bundestag.de, the leaflets available at the entrances and the (Berlin) daily newspapers, or contact the Visitor's Service by telephone (see general information); access will nevertheless be provided to the roof terrace"
The restaurant won't be closed. Also not the roof terrace.
Views are already good from the terrace.
Travel Tips for Berlin
E-Cityvisit provides an online interactive city tour through parts of Berlin similar to Google Earth's street view. It is fun to "stroll around" without leaving your place.
The panoramic images changes from day- to night view, which is particularly nice.
The Love of Cafes
Many younger people have rather small flats and would rather meet or entertain friends at local cafes. There are too many to name, both with signs out from so you can find them and those that are "secret" with needing passwords or to enter with a local who knows where to go. Any neighborhood you go to there are small "weinstube" and such things, nearly every corner.
Very nice to sit and have a meal or just a beer and talk and laugh. This is the Schwarz Sauer cafe/bar just around the corner from Checkpoint Charlie Museum.
The website link below is to a travel guide which can provide information for hotels, cafes and such. I know a lot of people like to research online before visiting a place, but really for Berlin..you can look up place you might like to go for eating and drinking online to get a map to location or something. But really it´s best just to get out and walk a certain area wherever you are and if it looks good to you, prices meet your pocketbook, go inside and have a nice time. Ask a local or someone who visits frequently if you are looking for a specific type cafe or restaurant to get a real feel for a place because over internet one can´t always especially if you want to go where locals go.
Summer house of Albert Einstein in Caputh
The municipality of Caputh is about six kilometres south of Potsdam, today’s state capital of Brandenburg. This quiet and dreamy place has become famous all over the world through Albert Einstein who spent most of the year in his summer house in Caputh during the years 1929 to 1932.
It is about 50 km away from Berlin.
"The sailing ship, the distant view, the lonely walks in autumn, the relative silence, it is paradise."
Albert Einstein, 1929
The Legend of the Soviet Times
The building at Alexander Platz is a legend. People from closest socialist countries shoped here. I can imagine the eyes of tourists from the USSR who visited the shop at that time! Shoping was much better in the GDR than in the Soviet Union.
Now it's just another big department store.
Mon-Fri 9:00 - 20:00
Sat 9:00 - 16:00
Sunday - closed
Kosmos or International...
Kosmos or International cinemas are in good old GDR style. Seeing is believing. Great big chandeliers hanging from the ceiling in the cinemas bar and in the theatre itself the ceiling is built like undulating waves with grey and white stripes running from the front to back and a great big silver and white sparkly curtain, as i said seeing is believing. I saw 'Cabaret' here. It was a perfect setting for a perfect movie :)
