Berlin: Good to know
Must do’s in Berlin
During your citytrip in Berlin is not hard to get inspired. Street art is everywhere in the city. Berliners love to be considered as creative. Top 3 blocks to view street art at its best: Rosenthaler Strasse, Alte Schönhauser Strasse and East Side Gallery.
On citytrip with the kids? Why not try your hand at urban gardening? Head for Prinzessinnengarten, a redefined piece of wasteland used by the locals to produce their own crops and buy and sell their local produce. The project definitely promotes a sense of community. Enjoy a healthy meal on a cosy terrace and watch your loved ones brazenly saunter about.
The Gendarmenmarkt square with the Konzerthaus flanked by the French and German Cathedrals is one of the most beautiful spots in Berlin. Its lit buildings at night, the ambiance made by street musicians playing classical music and the cute bars and restaurants which ooze with charm create a romantic picture; you may want to be in.
Berliners have a sweet tooth. Throughout the city you will come across shops displaying pastel coloured cakes and candies. Efa’s is the reference for delicious frozen yoghurts. Fraulein Frost specializes in crispy crunch home-made ice cream served in a retro decor.
Berlin: Insider tips

No queueing in the Buchstaben museum. This unique spot is run by 2 ladies who collect letters from old - neon - signs. The piece-de-resistance is a piece which was used on the set during the filming of Tarantino's Inglorious Bastards.
The largest collection of pop art and designer toys can be found at Me Collector's Room. A feast for young and old and a fun place for lunch or coffee!
Looking for cliché-free, unique souvenirs to remember your citytrip to Berlin by? Keep an eye out for an old-fashioned photo booth along your walking or cycling trails. A 2 euro coin will provide you with four different black and white photos, just the way it used to be!
How to explore Berlin?
No place as colourful as the Berlin U-Bahn. A U-bahn subway ticket is also valid for travel on buses and S-Bahn trams and far less expensive than the average European fare. Remember, within Berlin city centre many attractions are within walking distance from each other but in order to explore the outskirts affordably the U-Bahn proves to be a cheap and efficient alternative.Why not rent a car and visit Berlin’s neighbouring cities. You might as well enjoy the opportunity.
