Hi, LOVE Berlin!

We did taxi transfer via suntransfers, all on time.

We stayed at TITANIC Chaussee Berlin, about a 10-15 walk into the centre, away from the tourist traps but had lots of local reasonably priced restaurants on our doorstep and felt really safe. Also a tram stop outside. Very nice hotel, would 100% recommend!

Would really recommend the DDR museum, fascinating insight to life in east Germany.

We loved Berlin and had a great time there. There is a link to my trip report in my signature - we stayed a bit further out from the centre but it was a great location with plenty of places to eat nearby.

Hey, you will have a great time! Berlin is one of
My favourite places I have visited.

We stayed at Wyndham Garden Berlin Mitte which is a great location. It has a tram stop right outside and a bus stop outside which has a direct bus to the airport which was super handy. The team stops go into town and other parts of Berlin.

If you are interested in history then a must visit is sachsenhausen memorial and museum, an old concentration camp. So humbling and an important part of history.

Other must sees - check point Charlie, memorial to the murdered Jews, Berlin Wall memorial etc. Lots of museums and things to do!

A trip out to the Olympic Stadium and a swim in the outdoor pool (if warm enough) is a good out of town option.
