Velotaxis

by FriedrichZweite

I am thinking about making a trip to Berlin in the spring of 2011 with my mother who is almost 80. Though fit and able she cannot walk great distances and have been considering alternative modes of getting about the city. I know of the U-Bahn and Taxis of course and the excellent bus service but know nothing of the Velotaxi service. Is this a viable option for sightseeing in my situation? Do they seat 2 people as well as a driver? How far do they range and what sort of price. I would be grateful for any help, advice and suggestions.

Velotaxi succeds in combining the performance of an enviromentally sound means of transport with the high awareness of a top advertising medium.

Velotaxis seat two people with the driver as third person sitting front. At Berlin's main sights they are basically everywhere to find. I don't know the distance drivers are willing to cover, but you don't want to take the Veoltaxi from, say: Brandenburg Gate to Charlottenburg Castle anyway. In this case, you would simply take the S-Bahn.
So yes, it is a viable option for sightseeing.

Another means are a boats tour along river Spree or simply taking bus 100 from Zoo Station to Alexanderplatz and bus 200 back to Zoo Station (or vice versa). both lines cover most of Berlin's main sights.

Travel Tips for Berlin

History of Berlin to 1976

by DEBBBEDB

At the beginning of the 13th century, the community of Coelln grew up on an island in the Spree. It is mentioned for the first time in a document dated 1237.

Berlin started on the right bank, later. In 1307, Coelln and Berlin merged into one city. In 1451, the castle of Coelln ad der Spree became the permanent residence of the Elector. In 1710, there were 56,000 inhabitants including 6,000 Huguenots (Protestant refugees from France), 500 Swiss and 500 from the Palatinate, and the city covered 182 acres. The Prussian "Soldier King," Frederick William I made Berlin the capitol of Prussia and his son Frederick the Great continued to make Berlin a center of culture in Europe. Napoleon occupied Berlin in 1806, but the revolution of 1848 was short-lived and William I became emperor of the Second German Reich in 1871, with Berlin as its capital. All this was cut short by the First World War. After the war, Berlin became the capital of Germany's first democracy, the Weimar Republic, in the 1920s.

Berlin remained the capital of Germany during the Nazi era. Hitler even envisioned the city as 'Germania', the capital of a global empire. Berliners suffered under Nazi rule, especially the persecuted left-wing movements and the vast Jewish community. More than 60,000 Berlin Jews, nearly half of the city's population, died in the Holocaust. Thousands more fled the country.

By the end of World War II, Old Berlin had been reduced to a pile of rubble. Anything from before the war has probably been reconstructed. The Potsdam Agreement divided the city into four sectors, each of which was ruled by one of the Allies—the USA, USSR, Britain and France. The German Democratic Republic proclaimed East Berlin as its capital. And this was the way it remained when I visitd in 1976

Jump on the 100 bus

by vichatherly

For a great and reasonably cheap bus tour of the city just jump on the 100 at Bahnhof Zoologischer Garten and travel down towards Prenzlauer Allee.

It passes by many sights including Kaiser Wilhelm Church, the Reichstag and the Brandenburg Gate.

All this for the price of a bus fare, which is 2 euros.

Turks and others

by matcrazy1

There are over 2 mln Turkish people living in Germany of which many live in Berlin.
That's why I could easy find quite many Turkish restaurants and food (kebab) and some Turkish shops in Berlin esp. in Kreuzberg district where I saw stalls on which Turkish vendors sold cheap clothes.

The large numbers of Turks, Greeks and Italians originally came as "guest workers" in the 1960s. I found lots of races, colors, tastes and faces in multicultural Berlin including Turkish, Arabs, Asians, Africans.

Oranienburger Str

by cwest03

Oranienburger Str is a street full of surprises. Hidden bars, galleries, shops and nightclubs seem to be the norm. Surprises await you up stairs, down alleys and in buildings that seem uninhabited. An artists dream come true. The night life is also full of great music and friendly people. The best way to find something to do is word of mouth as it seem that there are many hidden treasures in this part of town

UPDATE: Sadly this area, like many ares of Berlin in recent years, has drastically changed. I originally visited this area in 1998 and found it as described above. When returning in 2001 I found many upscale shops, bars and restaurants. Luckily some of the artists still remain but the raising rent and refurbishing of buildings has driven a lot of them out. It's still worth a visit but not as exciting as it once was.

About the wall and cold war

by matcrazy1 about Street vendor

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.
There were numerous white crosses hang on the fence and there was this table on my picture but no street vendor at the moment I was there. Books, leaflets, old newspapers and video-cassetes on history of Berlin Wall and Cold War. Hmm... everything in German. There was advertisement printed on a paper: "STASI-files in English" (and in German, Spanish and Italian). Excuse, I have no idea.
