visit berlin card

by fairyindadragon4rest

im in potsdamer platz for 3 days.hv to travel to both airports and visit all the mail attractions
does the berlin card make sense ?

Re: visit berlin card

by Durfun

In one word: no!

Do it at your own pace, buying the tube daily pass. Works out better.

Re: visit berlin card

Which card to you meant?
The Berlin Welcome Card?
http://www.visitberlin.de/welcomecard/index.php?lang=en
The CityTourCard Berlin?
http://www.citytourcard.com/english/berlin/

Both cards cover all local public transport. If you want to travel to/from both airports you need the version for the zones Berlin ABC (Berlin+Potsdam) as Schönefeld Airport (SXF) lies also in zone Berlin C.

If these cards pay for will depend how many of the discounts coming with this card you can use. But if the 72 hours cards cover your stay time wise they pay nearly alone for public transport.

For comparison:
Berlin AB: single ticket EUR 2,10 - day ticket EUR 6,10
Berlin ABC: single ticket EUR 2,80 - day ticket EUR 6,50

Make a list of what you plan to do in Berlin and compare it to the list of discounts from the Berlin Card. When we were in Berlin in March, we checked and realized we'd save some money with the Berlin Card, so we bought it. Last year we had other things planned, so the day passes for public transport came cheaper.

Re: visit berlin card

does t cover the top 10 tourist attractions as well?

Re: visit berlin card

by abalada

For this we would have to agree on the top 10 attractions of Berlin first. That's no easy task. If you ask three persons about their top 10 places in Berlin you'll end up with a list of 21 places.

It does not cover the most visited attraction. As the access to the roof terrace/dome of the Reichstag is free.

Let's say with 3 days and on a normal tourist itinerary for Berlin you'll hit 2-3 places with discounts at least. If you qualify anyway for a discount, e.g. as a student with an ISIC card, these cards won't pay for normally as you cannot combine discounts. If you're heavily into museums (let's say a major museum per day) the 3 day museum pass will be the better deal.

Travel Tips for Berlin

New Berlin Free Tour

by stellar-stella

This free tour is quite good! At first I was thinking about going to the Terry tour which is much recommended on VT, but I just didn't have the right time...So at last I decided to go to that free tour.
I was with James, the English tour guide from California: humerous and energetic! Ready for questions.
So I think for a new-comer to Berlin, this free tour is very worth going! For you can get an informative first glance of Berlin, then you can decide whether to spend your money on other more insight tours!

Need more info?

In Berlin:

In Berlin I found quite many info-maps put along touristy streets - just like this one on my picture. There were a few tourist information centers for example in KaDeWe department store (Charlottenburg) and one located in southern wing of Branderburg Gate (Mitte) visited by me. It was open:
Nov. 1 - March 31: daily 10.00 - 6.00 pm;
April 1 - Oct. 31: extended opening hours.
Except giving tourist information, they were able to find and book accommodation both for group and single visitors.

Full list of tourist information centers: click here


On Virtual Tourist!
Berlin - choose your interest and go! Enjoy :-)
Or:
- check/book hotels/flights,
- read other pages on Berlin,
- go to VT Berlin Forum - ask the question on Berlin or review questions and replies of others.


In internet
Berlin Tourism Information - great official pages full of very usuful information, in Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Russian, Spanish. I am waiting for Polish :-)

Official webpage of Berlin - a lot of usuful info and news, in English and German;

Berlin Online - news in German only (on entertainment and gastronomy as well)

Berlin for youth - in English, German and French;

City Museums - in English and German;

Berlin Wall History - very interesting pages in English and German.

German flag

by matcrazy1

There were four large flags of Federal Republic of Germany put on the top of four corners of the Reichstag - a seat of the Deutscher Bundestag or German federal government.

During cold war this black-red-yellow was a flag of West Germany while East Germany added typical for Soviet block logo (click here to see it) in the middle of the flag during the cold war.

I remember my very amusing trip to Kecskemet, Hungary in late 80'. I met there two young Hungarians who invited us to their house/wooden cottage in the middle of nowhere (puszta) and they had large Hungarian flag hang on a wall with a whole in place of that logo which was surely forbidden that time.

I am not sure if I'd like to go there

by matcrazy1

At Nolendorfplatz (square) in Schöneberg there was extraordinary looking building, a mix of both classical and futuristic architecture, with the word Metropol beaming at its top on.

The edificie (built in 1920s) was a multifunctional house providing a venue for concerts, nightclubs and parties (incl. gay parties) advertised on its doors. Even the Kit Kat Club - well-known as a dance club and erotic playground for fans of plastic and leather from all over the world with a bent for experimentation - used to be located there. I am not sure if I'd like to go there, but if you want... -)

Salsa, Hip Hop, latin music

by aeroarce about HAVANNA

It runs wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
they use to open at 21:00 and give Salsa and latin dances classes (4 euros per person). and later it is open for every one untill late (later on weekend) on wednesdays there is only one dance floor with salsa, merengue, bachata, ballenato,... and the house is full of different people that goes there to dance and have fun, from africas, germans, latin people, and salsa and latin music and dance lovers. the entrance cost 3 Euros and the drinks are cheap.

On weekends there are 3 stages, the same as on wednesdays and anothere two one with hip hop, R&B Reguetton, and some Disco and other with latin and spanish music.
entrance fee depends on what time you reach the place but usually no more tha 8 Euros. for what I've seen wear what you like! Berlin is an easy going city
