    Exchange rates at Amex

    by Frisbeeace Written Aug 18, 2005

    Since I was heading to Prague after Berlin I thought that it would be a good idea to exchange some dollars for czech crowns before my arrival and avoid the risk of changing money at the train station. So I headed to the American Express office located in West Berlin (Bayreuther Str. 37) to change money. Wrong!!!! Afterwards I realized that the exchange rate was terrible plus the commission they charged me.

    Unique Suggestions: Wait until you reach Prague and change a minimum amount of money to cover the taxi or metro fee.

  • guggenheim museum berlin

    by miromi Written Dec 11, 2004

    the guggenheim on unter den linden exhibits big names, but if you're a tourist who has been to guggenheim bilbao or the new york city guggenheim, the one in berlin is definitely disappointing. there's really only one large room. it's really just too small to justify the admission price.

    Fun Alternatives: go on monday nights, it's free!

    Lack of parking space

    by matcrazy1 Updated Apr 17, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was looking for any parking place for my car close to the New National Gallery (Neue Nationalgalerie). It was Sunday before midday at the end of February. The toll parking lots around were full as a few events took place around, I suppose (surely the concert in a philharmony). I had to drive around doing right-turn circles about 30 min when unexpectadly I saw a car leaving its parking place :-))).

    Unique Suggestions: Keep smiling and either drive around like crazy or stop at one place among numerous already parked cars and watch for any leaving car.

    Fun Alternatives: Don't drive a car or drive such half-a-car like on my picture - 2-passanger Smart car of very smart length.
    Good news: public transportation is very efficient in Berlin :-).

    Checkpoint Charlie

    by Emke Updated Feb 29, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was very curious how Checkpoint Charlie would look like, because I'd heard so much about it. I can totally understand that it was an impressive place when the wall was there, but now it is a touristy souvenir spot. There are even people dressed like German soldiers with whom you can go on a picture. Can you believe it?

    Berling Tegel Airport - no "tax free"

    by JulesRules Written Feb 29, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was unpleasantly surprised that after check-in and going through customs, I found myself in a 30m2 room, waiting for the plane.
    No service.
    No shops.

    Unique Suggestions: So, after check-in, have your coffee at one of the bars/restaurants in the hall, and don't go through customs until your boarding time is announced.

    Fun Alternatives: Stay in the hall where check-in is.

    Monument for the luftbrucke

    The monument for the luftbrucke located near the airport of Berlin isn't that impressing. Well, the story behind it is impressing, but the monument isn't. You better read a book about it.
