First time in Berlin

by suzzie123

Hello everyone, Im new to this site so would appreciate any help you have. Im going to Berlin on 26th July for the weekend as a special birthday treat for my partner! We are staying in Hotel Berlin Berlin and would like to know if this is a good enough hotel and if it is close to restaurants and bars, if not is there transportation? I would also like to know of any nearby sites to see, is brandenburg gate close to here? Many thanks, in advance for your information!

You know what's funny? When people FIRST book and THEN ask if the choice was a wise one.
Well, in your case, it's ok. Could be worse, could be better.

Next subway stop is half a mile away, which would be Wittenbergplatz. From there you can take the U2 to Potsdamer Platz. Brandenburg Gate is a short walk away.
Alternatively you could just walk through Tiergarten Park.

Not far from your hotel are Kurfürstendamm with the Memorial Church and KaDeWe. Most main sights, however, are situated in the former eastern part of the city.

There are some restaurants and bars, but that would be one weak spot of your hotel's location (apart from the fact, that it's borderline red light with hookers). I guess it would be best to walk down Einemst and Maßenst to Winterfeldplatz. There's a broader range of bars and restaurants. It's a gay-area, though, hope you don't mind.

some additions to the (as always) good answer from turtleshell:

- bars and restaurants: there are three nice bars (trompete, bar am lützowplatz, harry's new york bar) and a decent restaurant (lochner) directly at your place (lützowplatz).
- Brandenburg gate is about 20 to 30 minutes walk from Lützowplatz or a five minutes ride and a five minutes walk with the U2 (to potsdamer platz or mohrenstraße).
- NEXT and better (as there is one line more leaving) subway stop is not Wittenbergplatz but rather Nollendorfplatz - just down Einemstraße.
- sites: Just walk down and up the river, which is one minute from your hotel! to the west there is the nice Tiergarten park, to the east there is modern architecture, museums and culture (potsdamer platz, the famous kulturforum with the great gemäldegalerie). At wittenbergplatz there is the famous KaDeWe. The other sights are easy to reach with the U2 (all between Potsdamer Platz and Alexanderplatz).
- There is in fact a problematic red light district near your hotel, directly at U-bahn station Kurfürstenstraße (the western part of the street is contrary to this, very safe).
- Winterfeldtplatz and Goltzstraße is in fact great when it comes to bars and restaurants. It's not really in the gay area anymore, which concentrates a bit north around Motzstraße.

Oh right, forgot about Nollendorfplatz.

Travel Tips for Berlin

For trainlovers only

by diocletianvs

Robert Schwandl is a well-known name to train enthousiasts (at least in Europe) and he recently published two books that every trainspotter needs to have. A 144-page "Berlin S-bahn Album" features descriptions of the history of S-bahn, description of the rolling stock and richly illustrated descriptions of 170 stations of this great transport system.

The book also has its sister that features the same overview of the Berlin's U-bahn system with an overview of all 192 stations.

After reading the both books all you have to do is buy your ticket and start exploring the stations, viaducts and tunnels yourself.

Most people speak enough...

by Sophiesmom2

Most people speak enough English so you don't really have to worry about getting around. The Germans like to walk and ride bikes so take advantage of the opportunity and get out and walk around the city!

Just Beyond the Borders of the City

by JourneyOf1

Berlin is a huge city, 3.5 million odd people I believe within its boundaries, but just outside the borders you will still find numerous small villages in certain areas. Many of the young people of these towns must-needs have moved into the city to work, or simply did not like the quieter lifestyle of the countryside and came into the big city. Smaller towns are losing ground, many houses stand empty or abandoned partially fallen down. Some even from damage of WWII or before. Many of these properties can be bought for little money to be renovated.

My friend Andreas has such a house. Its owner simply was tired of it and moved into the city. The former owner left all of his possessions, even family photos and children's toys, grandfather clocks and books, simply left them and asked that they be cared for. This is rather an unusual case, but these "off the beaten path" areas can still be interesting. Sitting in someone's front parlour having tea or a beer. We had simply been walking down the street and invited in by an old woman who just wanted to talk, reminiscence about the past, people now gone, children, family. A little sad, but still rich in character. Outside the borders of the city of Berlin, you can find many such places.

Europs biggest department store

by alexberlin about KaDeWe (Kaufhaus des Westens)

The KaDeWe is just as much a part of Berlin as the Brandenburg Gate, the Gedächtniskirche and the Television tower. On the other hand, the Berlin atmosphere, Parisian perfumes and the unique flair of the metropolis make their mark on the image of our store. The KaDeWe is the largest department store on the European continent. The choice and spectacular assortment of goods turn a shopping spree in the KaDeWe into an unforgettable experience.

The original building was designed by the architect Emil Schaudt. He endowed the building with everything a department store needs: generous proportions, functionality and atmosphere. The entire inner architecture radiates lightness and elegance. High above the roofs of Berlin, a glass-domed restaurant invites you to stop and enjoy. You can soar up through the open-roofed atrium in modern panorama elevators to the glass dome. 60,000 square metres (equivalent to the Olympic stadium plus 4 football fields)
over 380,000 articles of merchandise
2,400 members (70% female) including 100 trainees

The most popular department at KaDeWe is the delicatessen floor. It is the gourmet´s Mecca. The discerning palate can choose from around 33,000 different products in this, the largest food-hall in Europe.
about 1,300 different sorts of cheeese
about 400 types of bread and rolls
about 1,200 sorts of sausages
about 2,400 wines from 5 continents
