VT Staffer Needs Help!

by Paris92

Hi Everyone,

I hope you can help me with this--a writer from the New York Times needs some assitance with an article about money-saving tips on the metros of several European cities, specifically London, Paris, Rome, Berlin, and Barcelona. If you have any and are interested in speaking with him, please email me so I can have him contact you, and of course, please share them here as well! Where Berlin and Barcelona are concerned, he is also looking for tips about safety and navigation as well.

As always, thanks, everyone!

Re: VT Staffer Needs Help!

In Berlin (and elsewhere in Germany) a local public transport ticket covers all types of local public transport. Even a single ticket. You can use any combination of types of public transport you need to make your trip. Covered are in Berlin
- regional trains (RegionalBahn RB and RegionalExpress RE trains)
- S-Bahn
- U-Bahn (metro)
- trams
- buses
and even some ferries. Thus no turnstiles, but plain clothed ticket inspectors and hefty fines if caught without a valid ticket.

There are tickets for the zones "Berlin AB" (= all of Berlin) and tickets for "Berlin ABC". In Zone C there are e.g. Schönefeld Airport or the city of Potsdam.

How to save:
- day ticket (makes sense from 3 trips onwards)
- mini group day ticket (for 3-5 persons cheaper than day tickets per person)
- 7-day ticket
also an option are the Berlin Welcome Card and the CityTourCard Berlin which both cover local public transport plus giving discounts to a number of attractions.
http://www.berlin-welcomecard.de
http://www.citytourcard.com/c/cms/front_content.php?changelang=2&idcat=1&id=
Both come in a 48 and 72 hours version. More flexible than the (calendar) day tickets.

BVG site has maps, a timetable and lot's of more information (all in English)

Navigation:
Double decker bus lines #100 and #200 connect many sights in central Berlin and are thus ideal for tourists. Generally by bus and trams you can see something of the city.
S-Bahn runs on the "Stadtbahn" railroad (the west-east railroad through the centre of Berlin) elevated. The north-south lines run however through a tunnel in the city centre.
U-Bahn (U = Untergrund = underground). Despite the name it does not always run underground. Esp. the lines U1 and U2 run elevated through parts of the city centre.

Safety
Berlin is pretty safe. Definitely safer than the other 4 cities listed.
Of course the usual precautions for any big city should be observed. E.g. not to walk a single women through a dark park in the mid of the night.

Travel Tips for Berlin

The skyline of Berlin

by maryamy

This is how I saw the skyline from the west, around Ku'dam...
My favourite thing about Berlin is that it is a capital city where one can relax and enjoy life. Fondest memory was just to hang out and enjoy seeing everything.

Allotment Gardens

by alancollins

Though not unique to Berlin, it does have more than its fair share of allotment gardens with over 800 complexes. You frequently see them along side the railway tracks and on other pieces of land close by. Originally designed, over 100 years ago, as in other countries for the growing of vegetables to supplement diets of the poor. Their use has changed over the years and they now have well laid out gardens with attractive cabins. They are extremely popular and their leases are handed down through families, due to their high demand. They are used as second homes and you see them equipped with satellite dishes and small above ground swimming pools.

Praha...

by coceng

Prague ? Off the beaten path in Berlin ? yes, why not ! It's a train ride away & Prague is so unlike Berlin with rich cultures & history, in some ways connecting to Berlin. The war etc.
I think it's about 6 hours between them by train. If you are in Berlin maybe more than 1 week, please, please do go to Prague. you will thank me later.
It's a beautiful city in another country of course. Amazing sceneries in the north of Czech Republic as well. If you decide not to reach Prague, get off in the north of Czech Republic.
If I was not running all the times in my travel in that year 2002, I would love to stop in the north of Czech Republic.

Good food sections: tea

by hojasdehierba about KaDeWe (Kaufhaus des Westens)

If you are a tea-addict, like myself, I am sure that you will enjoy the superb tea stalls at this department store. They also have other peculiar food and drink sections, for instance a Moet & Chandon champagne bar Si eres un adicto al te, como yo, estoy segura de que disfrutaras de los magnificos puestos de te de este gran almacen. Tambien tienen otras secciones peculiares de comida y bebida, por ejemplo, la champagneria de la marca Moet & Chandon.

warehouses of excitement

by miromi about r.a.w. tempel

this is another massive art complex barely saved from destruction in the 1990s and has at least 2 clubs, sculpture gardens and studios, bars, a theater, and a film screen. there are some really nice parties but the crowd tends to run young, as it is one of those wonderfully optimistic and idealistic places that really are what Berlin is all about. there is something wonderfully beautiful about fresh-faced youngsters running around organizing demonstrations on its grounds and the construction of its African beach bar that make this a really special place. the reggae and techno parties here are nice and prices very low. crusty!
