Welcome to VT. You have come to a good place to find answers to your questions about Berlin. Go to the travel guide and you will find over 3,000 tips on things to do and over 300 on nightlife. I've got plenty of tips on my Berlin page, but other members, including locals, have many more and are more extensive. Don't just wait for responses in the forum. Although they are good for up to the minute ideas. Look into the collective, more comprehensive feedback in the travel guide.

Re: 5 days in Berlin

I second what Tom has said. There are already plenty of tips online.
Since you plan on visiting Berlin late November, changes are that weather will suck noodles, that it will be cold and rainy. Sorry to spoil your expectations, but as much as I like my former hometown, November and February are the worst months to visit the city. Ok, you're from Dublin, but hopefully you have more luck.

So see what galleries and museums you like: Island of Museums, Jewish Museum, Technikmuseum, C/O Berlin, Hamburger Bahnhof, Martin Gropius Bau ...

Other than that: The main sights of course, perhaps Potsdam with Sanssouci and the Dutch Quarter.

A good place to go out is Prenzlauer Berg (around Kollwitzplatz, Kulturbrauerei and Helmholtzplatz), Mitte (around Hackesche Höfe and New Synagogue) and Friedrichshain (around Simon-Dach-St.)

Thus, I would recommend an accomodation in the boroughs "Mitte" or "Prenzlauer Berg".

Great,

Thanks for the advice, I'll get onto the Tips section and take it from there

Hi,
A useful tip is to take public bus number 100 or 200 which passes almost all Berlin's major sights for a fraction of the cost of the sightseeing bus, Darren.

Travel Tips for Berlin

Reichstag

by KiNyA

The german Parliament building, the Reichtag, was designed by Paul Wallot and built between 1884 and 1894. The Social Democrat, Philipp Schiedermann, proclaimed the first democratic, parliamentary republic in this building on 9th November 1918.
The glass dome is opened for public but I hadn't had any time to visit it.

Christmas Market

by Jarra

Weihnachtsmarkt, a Christmas market, is a must place to visit if you're in Berlin at Christmas time. You'll find Christmas markets all around the city. Some of them are tiny places while others are large entertainment areas full of tingle-tangle and handicraft works. What you should do in Weichnachtsmarkt is to have a cup (or two...) of strong "Glühwein" or Jagertee and enjoy the atmosphere. A cup of Glühwein costs 3-6 euros (including deposit of the cup) depending on the situation of the market place. Part of that is normally paid back if you return the cup. Don't forget to buy a ginger cookie to take home with you! And, be prepared for large crowds.

Take a walk and note the buildings

by maryamy

Berlin was somewhat preserved in its state during the Soviet area, clearly mostly in the East.
If you look carefully, you can still see bullet holes and shrapnel marks on the walls, just the same way as you can see remnants of adjoining buildings on some walls...

Friedrichstrasse

by Emke

It is not so much one shop I'd like to recommend, but rather a whole street: the friedrichstrasse.

You can't afford to buy anything (at least I couldn't), but it's always nice to just windowshop. A lot!

Schnabelbar

by go_doggo

Schnabelbar
This was our first stop on what was planned to be a night of bar hopping. There were only a few other people at this tiny bar. The dj was mixing some funky tunes and the beer selection was good. The decor was interesting - a mix of submarine type look behind the bar and African hangings and sculptures around the tables and side walls. I didn't want to leave!!!
