First Time to Berlin - May

by DJStarr

Planning a fun (and romantic) weekend getaway any weekend in May to Berlin (first timers) from Barcelona - but could use a wee bit of advice. Third weekend in May - a multicultural festival in town - worth going for? Best area to stay in town, if we have to select one from a list of hotels? We only have a few days, so would like to be in a cool area with lots to see and do. (Food, drink, walks, sights)
Any help appreciated!
DJ

Re: First Time to Berlin - May

I just came back from Berlin two weeks ago. This time we stayed in Motel One Alexanderplatz. The location is great, right next to Alexanderplatz station, a main S-Bahn and subway hub.
It's not a luxury place to stay,nor particularly charming, but a basic tourist hotel, which offers all you need.

Last year we stayed at the Hotel Kima, which was the nicer hotel, in an old Art Nouveau building, but not as central as the Motel One. It's off Ku'damm.

If your emphasis is more on the fun weekend, I would recommend staying near Alexanderplatz, if the romantic part is the more important, I'd pick the Kima.

Hi DJ!
For sights, I'd choose to stay in Kreuzberg, or possibly the Mitte or Prenzlauer Berg areas - all in the centre of Berlin, with distinctive atmospheres (they all bordered the Wall). Kreuzberg used to have an alternative feel to it, and may still do (I haven't been back for a few years now) but I read that some of this ethos has moved to Prenzlauer Berg as Kreuzberg has started to gentrify. Also very close to the great museums of the Mitte (particularly the Pergamon)and great tube links. Enjoy your visit!

There has been a similar question about Walpurgis and First of May over on Tripadvisor today and a local gave detailed advice which areas to avoid. Check here: http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g187323-i135-k3550083-May_Day_in_Berlin-Berlin.html

The building was built in the beginning of the 20th century. During DDR-times it was used as cinema and for an artist school.

In 1990 several artist occupied the ruin and saved it from being destroyed. Now it has the status of a memorial. You find some studios where you can buy the work of different artists. A cinema and a café are also there.

Segelurlaub : Segeln lernen in Berlin

by blueknight1980

Ich habe meinen Sportbootführerschein in 2009 in Berlin gemacht.
Auf der Suche nach einer sympatischen Segelschule bin ich auf "Nautik Yachting" gestoßen.
Das war echt klasse : sehr nettes, junges und kompetentes Team und ein super Fuhrpark.
Die haben da nicht nur diese GFK Jollen, wie die anderen Schulen, sondern echt schicke Klassiker.

Auch die Terminwahl (ich habe einen Ferienkurs belegt) war super flexibel.

Hat insgesamt echt Spaß gemacht, sofort zum Erfolg geführt und ist aus meiner Sicht für alle Interessenten eines Segelscheins in Berlin DIE Empfehlung schlechthin. In der Segelschule bekommt man alles was man braucht.

Knoblauch Haus

by barryg23

This house in the Nikolaiviertel was one of the few to escape bomibing in the war. I'm not sure where it's strange name comes from. Is Knoblauch German for garlic? Nowadays the house is home to a museum.

World Class Opera at the Staatsoper

by mphilip about Staatsoper Unter den Linden

Under the Musical direction of Daniel Barenboim the Staatsoper of Berlin continues the excellent top class and original opera producions that Germany is so famous for. The theatre is a jewel with it´s gleaming crystal chandeliers and gilded plasterwork. Seat prices very reasonable.
I bought my tickets well in advance by internet. Elegant and smart - be as creative as you like.
