Berlin Hbf

by aussiecouple

I will be travelling with my elderly (but mobile) mother through Berlin HBf. Bahn-de tells us we need to walk from Berlin Hbf tief (platform 7) to Berlin Hbf platform 13 C-E, however we only have 7 minutes to make the train connection. Will this be possible with mother who is not a fast walker?

Getting from the deep part to the high part at Berlin Hbf is not hard. There are lots of elevators. However, there is no direct elevator from platform 7 to platform 13.
You can find a plan of the railway station here:
http://www.hbf-berlin.de/site/shared/de/dateianhaenge/infomaterial/sonstige/bahnhofsplan__berlin__hbf.pdf

Basically this is how you walk:
Take the elevator up to the ground floor from platform 7.
Get out, and look around. You'll see that there is a big open space, with several cylindrical elevators going up. You need the middle on, which will be marked as going to platform 13-14. Just ride that to the top. Basically it's two elevators, and a maybe a 50 m walk between them.

If you're still uncomfortable with a 7 minute change in a strange railwaystation, why not tell the planner at bahn.de to give you more time for transfers. The planner has an option where you can set the minimum duration of transfer.

Hi,

there is a detailed plan of the Hauptbahnhof (unfortunately only in German)at
http://tinyurl.com/yqlh3f
where you can check the distances.
To be on the safe side and to avoid further stress, I`d recommend to try to get a somewhat later train, as the distances (inspite of the many elevators etc) may be too much for the 7-minutes layover!

and what if your arriving train is one minute late? Happens.

Re: Berlin Hbf

Thank you very much for your clear directions. As we are travelling from Prague to Copenhagen I agree it may be too much to do this in 7 minutes - I will look for another connection.

> 7 minutes
Make it rather to 7 days ;-)
Berlin has ways more on offer than Prague and Copenhagen together.

On alternative would be to travel via Hamburg. The EC Praha - Hamburg leaves at 8:25, you have almost two hours to change in Hamburg for the train to Koebenhavn, but you'll arrive there quite late though.

Travel Tips for Berlin

Boat Tours: See Berlin from the Water

by Kakapo2

You will find few cities in Europe with such a lot of lakes, rivers and canals. That is why Berlin is called Spree-Athen (Athens on Spree). You can walk along nearly 500 kilometres along the riverbanks or lakesides. As this is far too exhausting, why not enjoy some spectacular views from the water? Boat tours are a great option to explore parts of the city. My favourite one is on the Spree, along Museumsinsel.

Those tours start at Friedrichsbrücke, between S-Bahn station Hackescher Markt and Berliner Dom.

Most operators offer tours from March - but sometimes not with daily schedules. But from April they operate daily. In general this goes on until the end of October, sometimes to the first days of November.

Berlin is a city as diverse as...

by seamandrew

Berlin is a city as diverse as San Francisco and Amsterdam. There is much art and culture to be studied and absorbed there. Museums abound and a new Jewsih museum commermorating the holocaust was in construction when I visited in 2001. There are also many majestic churches and cathedrals. Try to spend at least a week there. You will have more to see than you will have time ever have time for. Soccer (Fussball) is a very popular sport and activity in Berlin (and most of Europe). Try to catch a Soccer game, it's a lot of fun!

east germany museum (DDR)

by somoslagente

this is by the river /canal and a bit of a walk from the nearest underground station (or maybe thats just because we got lost). personally , i was really looking forward to the visit - but ended up very dissapointed as - to me- it wasn´t that interesting

Street stalls

by nigelw6443 about Souvenirs

Outside nearly every tourist attraction you will find street stalls selling mostly relics from the former GDR or Soviet Union. It is hard to tell whether or not they are genuine articles. Former uniforms, military hats and medals of the GDR.

Dont sit around the airport

by geordieontour

Last time at the airport we flew in from Kralow and had 3 hours to kill for connecting flight to Newcastle.
WE decided to board the free bus to Holiday Inn at the airport just outside the arrivals.( with Cases)
We enjoyed a 2 hour break IE a meal and wash up in a relaxed atomsphere then the free bus returned us to the airport in time for the flight.
THe Mini bus runs every 20 minutes try it, better then sitting around the airport
