Bus Info Needed

by Archway

I'm trying to find out / work out if there are buses running along a number of streets I will be visiting. I looked at http://www.fahrinfo-berlin.de/Fahrinfo/bin/query.bin/en but I mainly get S or & Bahn info.

So, I wonder if anyone could point me to a bus map or perhaps bus the numbers that run along these streets/routes:

- From Karl Liebknechtstr / Prenzlauer to Knaackstr (10178)
or
- Shönhauserstr / Allee Schönhauser Allee(10119) to Eberswalderstr (10437)

- From Mühlenstrasse (10243) up Warschauerstrasse (10243) to Frankfurter Allee (10247)/ Karl-Marx-Allee

- From Frankfurter Allee (10247) along with Karl-Marx-Allee to Karl Liebknechtstr

- From Waterloo Ufer (10961) along with Mehringdam (10961) to Gneisenaustr (10961)

- From the corner of Mehringdam (10961) and Bergmanstr (10961) along with Bermanstr to Körtestr (10967)
or
- From Mehringdam (10961) along with Gneisenaustr (10961) to Körtestr (10967)

- From Moritzplatz (10969) along with Oranienstr to Kochstr (10969)

- From Lessingstr (10555) along Altonaerstr (10557) then along Hofjägerallee (10785) to Stülerstr (10787)

- Along Kurfürstendamm (10719) between Joachimstaler (10719) and Konstanzerstr (10707)

- From Hardenbergerstr (10623) along Otto-Suhr-Allee (10585) to Spandauer Damm (14059)


I am certain that there won't be buses running exactly along the above specified routes, but perhaps there are routes kind of along those lines.

I know I can use the S or U Bahn in stead, but I'll be travelling with someone who can't walk for too long. Also, it's usually better to take the buses because you can actually see your surroundings.

Any info will be grately appreaciated.

Many thanks.

You have been already damn close to the answers.

a) At
http://www.fahrinfo-berlin.de/Fahrinfo/bin/query.bin/en?ld=0.1&
click on [advanced options] and uncheck the first 4 options (trains, S-Bahn, U-Bahn).
By default the timetable will give you the fastest connections. Which is mostly not via tram or bus if it comes to longer distances.

b) In the menu on the left you can find the point
City Map
http://www.fahrinfo-berlin.de/Stadtplan/index
This is a street map which shows also all local public transport lines. Here you can check how you can follow the desired streets/routes.

Re: Bus Info Needed

S-Bahn runs mostly above surface. On the Ringbahn (the S-Bahn ring around the city center) and the Stadtbahn (the east-west railraod through the city center) even elevated. Only the Nord-Süd-Bahn (the north-south railroad through the city center) is a tunnel (used by S1, S2 and S25).
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berlin_S-Bahn

Even the U-Bahn is - despite the name (U = Untergrund = underground) - not always underground, but on some parts also elevated.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berlin_U-Bahn
http://www.berliner-untergrundbahn.de/s-linien.htm
U1 5,6 km from 9,0 km elevated/above surface
U2 6,2 km from 20,7 km
U3 5,6 km from 11,9 km
U5 9,4 km from 18,4 km
U6 2,9 km from 19,9 km
the other lines are completely underground

Re: Bus Info Needed

by Archway

Thank you for the info. It's great to know the S and U Bahn run above ground.

I didn't even see the advanced option on that page. With that I have managed to find quite a number of buses that we can take and the clickable map is such a bonus. Something that was rather odd was the fact that some buses didn't appear on that site, or not as far as I can tell. Maybe I did something wrong.

I found a map with bus routes at http://www.berliner-stadtplan.com/adresse/karte/berlin/pos/5131,5665.html. Some buses appear on the maps provided by the latter website, but they don't seem to appear on the BVG site.

The last thing I'm looking for is a supermarket (a small one will be OK) near-ish to Unter den Linden or Potsdamerplatz.

Re: Bus Info Needed

by abalada

I would trust the BVG map. They operate the buses.
With any visit in Berlin I first grab the newest network maps. They always change something. Not only bus routes, but from time to time also S-Bahn and tram route/numbers. Only the U-Bahn network is rather *stable*.

There is an Aldi and a Kaiser's in the Potsdamer Platz Arkaden.
http://www.potsdamer-platz-arkaden.de/

Unter den Linden is rather a long street. Here you'll find markets rather in the side streets as Under den Linden itself is an expensive address.

Re: Bus Info Needed

by stativi

The map you found seems correct regarding the bus lines. Just keep in mind that the buses with an "N" before the number only go at night. There is also a good map at www.berlin.de/stadtplan
The nearest shop to Unter den Linden is assumably the Edeka inside the Friedrichstraße train station.

Travel Tips for Berlin

the city is full with...

by inuit

the city is full with monuments to human stupidity and it's self destruction un controled desire.
at list it pays the artists bills...
it's the 'Neue Wache' (guard house).
located on the street 'Unter den Linden' (berlin's most beautiful one. the Neue Wache was built by Schinkel (famous architect, who's done a lot in berlin + area), in 1818. from 1931 on, it was used as a memorial for fallen soldiers in WW I, from the GDR for victims of fashism and militarism.
1993 they put in the enlarged sculpture of Kaethe Kollwitz (famous artist). it was highly discussed that they changed the inscripts (after the fall of the wall) and that they enlarged this originally very small sculpture.

Levetzowstrasse Monument

by iblatt

On Levetzowstrasse no. 7, not far from the Tiergarten and the Spree, near a synagogue which does not exist any more, is the site where Jews were first loaded into cattle train-wagons and transported to concentration camps in the east.

The monument consists of a wagon loaded with human stone figures, a memorial wall with the details of all transports, and memorial plaques to the synagogues set on fire on Crystal Night.

The wagon monumet very vividly evokes those sad memories.

Flea Market

by barryg23

While wandering around Bernauer Strasse, I came across this flea market near the NordBahnhof station. I was hoping to find some souvenirs of the cold war, but nowadays these are nearly all in the touristy souvenir shops.
