Train from Dortmund to Berlin

by canadianinromania

Hi all,
just wondering if anyone has an idea of cost for a train from Dortmund to Berlin next month. I looked on the bahn.de website, and the fares seem really high @ 90 Euro each way. Is this accurate, or is there cheaper ways to get to Berlin from Dortmund.

Please let me know
thanks in advance

The bus is a lot cheaper, but it is a long journey.

The regular train fare is around 80 to 90 Euro. However, if you make use of the so-called "Dauer Spezial"-Ticket you can get the same journey for either 29.- or 39.- Euro. The special offer can be bought online or at the counter. According to the website, you need to make a fixed reservation at least 3 days in advance (the earlier the better as there are limited number of seats for this offer).

Other than that, you can also save a lot of money by traveling on a weekend.
The fare-system is quite complicated but it's definitely possible to save a lot of money by buying your ticket a) as early as possible in advance, b) booking a fixed train (no change possible) and/or c) traveling on a weekend.

Good luck!

Cheers,
Robert

Travel Tips for Berlin

Berlin Tip

by jhawk1000

I liked the early mornings in the heart of Berlin. It was intersting going to the Zoological Garden Bahnhof to see the sun rise from the elevated train track platforms. There is lots of activity around the train station in the morning with food, drink and other shops inside the station or on the sidewalk. Linda took this picture of early morning activity at a mobile fruit stand. She pointed the camera and the lady who obviously owned it wanted all the workers to come and get in the picture.

Street Musicians in the Bahns

by grishaV1

The street players in metro stations, or standing before theatres and museums, and in platz....like the wonderful cello player whose name I didn't know but whom I saw more than once. Makes you have tears sometimes its so beautiful!

Many times walking down into the U-Bahn, you can hear the player before you see them, whether its guitar or cello or accordian. You don't have to give them some cents or Euros, but I always try to if I have them to give.

Besides Zoologischer Garten, I know that inside the Ku'damm Station near the C&A corner, during evening times, there is often players there on the main level. Violin players and accordion, and an old man on the train level on Rathaus Steglitz platform. Almost always I give him a little something, if you see him...why not? He plays a harmonica.

Monument of the Grey Bus

by iblatt

Outside Philharmonic Hall in the Tiergarten Kulturforum I spotted a strange monument: a full-size bus made of grey cement, cut in its middle. There were some flower bouquets nearby, and a board which explained the mystery: This place has a terrible and chilling history from the Nazi period.
This was the headquarters of the Euthanasia Act, which planned and executed the systematic murder of 200,000 mentally ill patients and other invalids during the years 1940-1941. This act was named "T4", after the address "Tiergarten 4", location of the headquarters for this "special agency", and this is where I was standing now.
Actually, there is a modern bus stop ("Philharmonic Hall") at the exact same spot!
In the photo you can see Philharmonic Hall in the background.

Although it's "off the beaten track", visiting this monument is a powerful experience, and reflecting on these horrors will help ensure that they will never be perpetrated again, anywhere in the world.

Like in an other world . . .

Transport System

by aeroarce

The transport net in berlin has a unified ticket system that helps you to move around the city without much hassle. you can buy the tickets at a ticket sales office at mayor stations, at single ticketseller machines that are in all stations and trams or to the bus driver. the single ticket is quite expensive (2,10 euros single way) but it allows you for 2 hours in the same direction. If you plan to make 3 or more trips on a day its better 4 you to take a Tageskarte (ticket for the day) it is valid for the whole day untill 03:00 of the next day. If you plan to stay more than 4 days in Berlin is better for you to buy a week ticket that cost around 25 Euros. But don't forget to validate on the validating machines because if theu caught you with ticket but not validated you will have to pay a penalty

The Transport includes The Buses, night buses, trams (called metropol), U-bahn (metro) S-bahn (trains that connect closer cities) and Regional trains.
