October - November 2010 berlin.inyourpocket.com
Berlin is four times the size of Paris, and even though the
city consolidated its 23 districts into 12 in 2001, you’re still
left with 23 self contained areas (Kieze) in which Berliners
often find everything they need. Public transportation is
far-reaching and effective though, and you’ll grow to love it
as you shuttle between the four areas with the most sights:
Charlottenburg, Tiergarten, Mitte and Kreuzberg.
Mitte (MI)
Since reunification, Mitte has rightly snatched back the title
of most-visited district from Charlottenburg. On and off the
boulevard Unter den Linden, whose trees Marlene Dietrich
once extolled in song, are baroque and classical monuments
to Prussian culture. The proximity of state libraries, the State
Opera, Humboldt University, the old Arsenal (now the German
History Museum), Gendarmenmarkt, Museum Island, Berliner
Dom, and the abandoned East German Parliament building
make for more talk, less walk tours. The architecturally
humbler area of Mitte is the Scheunenviertel, whose layout
looks as if 17th-century planners got interrupted during a
game of pick-up sticks. It’s on these streets that the casually
chic saunter from courtyard gallery to sidewalk café, pointing
out directions to tourists seeking out the latest hotspots or
traces of the Jewish community that lived here from the late
17th-century until the mass deportations of the Nazi era.
Charlottenburg (CB)
I f downtown to you means wi de, traf fi c-fill ed streets,
crowds of shoppers, five-star hotels and tall buildings, then
Charlottenburg comes closest to fitting the bill in Berlin.
Much of what was here was bombed in the war and built
anew in the 1950s. The nexus of activity is the knot where
Kufürstendamm, Joachimsthaler Str, Bahnhof Zoo and
Tauentzienstr. come together. Follow what becomes an
increasingly silken ribbon down Kurfürstendamm (Ku’damm)
and the setting becomes more genteel where you can’t see the
buildings for the trees. Nearby but isolated from the hoi polloi
is Schloss Charlottenburg, the residence of King Friedrich I.
Tiergarten (TG)
Tiergarten is both a district and the name of the 255 hectare
park that began as the Great Elector’s hunting grounds in
the 1600s and became increasingly more civilised with
landscaping in the 1800s. Traffic passes through it, doing a
dosey-doe around the Siegessäule (Victory Column). Slicing
though the park’s length is Str. des 17. Juni, which leads to
the Brandenburg Gate at the eastern end. Just south of it
are the museums of the Kulturforum and Potsdamer Pl.
Kreuzberg (KB)
Thanks to a large Turkish community and more hippies,
anarchists and al ternati ve folks than you can shake a
didgeridoo at, Kreuzberg feels neither East nor West. It
was the black sheep of West Berlin, left alone in its far-off
room to play loud music and draw on the walls (literally, it
was parked in a dead-end, cornered by The Wall). In 1987
social and economic frustration exploded into violence and
vandalism during the traditionally political demonstrations
of May Day. Every year since, the city prepares for a long
night of stone-throwing and burning automobiles. May 1st
is essentially Kreuzberg’s way of reliving its 15 minutes of
fame. The rest of the days are marked by backgammon at the
men’s clubs, café-sitting on the Landwehrkanal, and ambling
down the popular drags Oranienstr. and Bergmannstr. Two
major museums, the House at Checkpoint Charlie and the
Jewish Museum, are planted in the staid parts of the district.
BERLIN DISTRICTS
Prenzlauer Berg (PB)
On a low hill northeast of Mitte, ‘Prenzl’ Berg’ is an old
working-class district in the former East Berlin that came
through the war relatively unscathed. The best places to
soak up the atmosphere are Kollwitzpl, Helmholzpl. and along
Kastanienallee (all near U-Bahn Eberswalderstr.). Prenzlauer
Berg’s few attractions include the Vitra Design museum and a
19th-century brewery complex that is now the Kulturbrauerei
culture centre. A good time to visit is Saturday when the eco-
market is open on Kollwitzplatz, or Sunday when everyone
sits outside being cool and eating breakfast all day.
Further afield
Districts mostly known for their restaurant and nightli fe
scene are Schöneberg (SB), the centre of gay Berli n,
and Friedrichshain (FH), filled with creatively tattered and
tattooed students. Berlin has green spots galore, and after
Tiergarten the most popular getaways are the Grunewald
forest and lake Wannsee, in the southwest distri ct of
Zehlendorf (ZD).

Throughout the 19th century, Berlin ranked as
one of the most important cities in the world for
scientific research and discovery. Brainy types
flocked to the city, universities, libraries and
institutes were opened and Germans spread over
the world to explore new regions, bringing back
strange plants, animals and stories. Although Berlin
lost out somewhat to new scientific centres in the
USA, UK and Asia, the city still has what it takes
to grab the occasional Nobel prize. This year, five
grand old institutions celebrate their collective
anniversary with the Science Year, packed with
events, some of which are English-language and
accessible to visitors. See p.48 for more details.
Berlin’s regular event calendar is also packed with
exciting concerts, exhibitions and trade fairs; in the
exhibition Hitler and the Germans – Nation and
Crime, the German Historical Museum shows how
Hitler fascinated Germans in the 1930s. See p.9 for
the full listings. And if all that is not enough to fulfil
your wildest Berlin desires, just wait until the last
week of November when Berlin’s Christmas markets
set up their stalls, heat up their mulled wine and
open to the public in advance of the winter holidays.
Whatever you do this autumn, send us your
comments at berlin@inyourpocket.com.
Enjoy Berlin.

Si nc e t h e f al l o f t h e
Ber l i n Wal l ar ound 20
year s ago, Ber l i n has
experi enced breakneck
change: its infrastructure
was modernized from the
ground up, while entire city
districts were either created
from scratch or thoroughly
remodeled. Moreover, Berlin
has become a capital not
only in the political sense,
but culturally and intellectually as well. As a result, it is
now considered one of the most exciting and diverse
cities in all of Europe.
Berlin finds its positive image reflected in its tourist
industry statistics: more and more people are visiting
our city to see its countless attractions for themselves.
These i ncl ude, for exampl e, the ubi qui tous traces
of a turbulent and emotional history and the ci ty’s
compelling museums, which invite you to browse the
world’s cultures. The contemporary art scene, too, has
long since found a home in Berlin, proof of which can
be seen in the city’s hundreds of galleries, many stellar
collections – often exhibited in innovative settings –
and, most recently, the new temporary art gallery in the
heart of the city.
Great art can of course also be experienced in Berlin’s
opera houses and its many renowned theaters. Its
wi de range of orchestras – i ncl udi ng the Berl i ner
Phil harmoni ker, the Staatskapell e, the Deutsches
Symphonie Orchester, the Rundfunksinfonie Orchester,
and countless others – is unmatched in its quality and
diversity. And let’s not forget Berlin’s exciting club scene
and the many di fferent restaurants, pubs, and bars
that make the city the place to be for anyone looking for
cosmopolitan flair and the latest trends.
In this spirit, I would like to wish you an eventful stay
in Germany’s capital city –
welcome to Berlin!

CULTURE & EVENTS
October - November 2010 berlin.inyourpocket.com
Public transport
Berlin’s integrated network of S-Bahn (Schnellbahn), U-Bahn
(Untererdische Bahn, underground), bus, and Straßenbahn
(tram, in eastern Berlin only) is run by the BVG (tel. 194
49, www.bvg.de) and the system runs very smoothly, even
though they confuse everyone by naming buses and trams
the Metro network. If you remember the number (or colour)
and end station of the U or S line you want to use, you’ll soon
be navigating the labyrinth-like stations like a local. Signs
display the destination of the train, and at U-Bahn stations,
display when the next train will arrive.
The same tickets serve all BVG services. Vending machines
at stations and on trams have instructions in English and
accept coins (and on platforms, banknotes too). At larger
stations there are S-Bahn information and sales counters.
On buses, the driver can sell you a ticket.
With a €2.10 Einzelticket (single ticket) you can travel
one-way, with transfers, within the AB zone. Buy a €1.30
Kurzstrecke (short distance) ticket i f you want to travel
up to three S/U-Bahn stops, or up to six stops by bus or
tram. If you anticipate a lot of travelling, consider either the
Tageskarte (day card, valid until 03:00 the next morning;
€6.10) or seven-day pass (€26.20).
I f you’re in a group of up to five people, you can buy a
Kleingruppenkarte (group day ticket, €15.90). The BVG, the
tourist office, and some hotels sell a variety of great-value
multiday city cards including the Berlin WelcomeCard and
the City Tour Card (see Sights for more details). If you’re
arriving in or leaving Berlin by train and your ticket says
Berlin Stadtbahn, you can travel free on the elevated S-Bahn
line between Charlottenburg and Ostbahnhof on the day of
arrival/departure.
Before boarding the S- or U-Bahn, always validate your
ticket by punching it in the machine near the end of the
platform. On buses and trams, the machines are on board.
Public transport uses the honour system, and there are
regular checks by plainclothes inspectors. If you are caught
without a ticket (or with an unvalidated one) you’ll be fined
€40 on the spot.
You can go play the night owl, as the nightime transport
options are excellent and have smooth connections. All
U-Bahn trains run every 15 minutes on weekend nights;
on weekdays buses marked N travel their routes every
hal f hour. Also, all tram and bus lines starting with M run
every hal f hour at night.
Trains
DB (Deutsche Bahn, German railways) runs ICE trains (high
speed), EC (EuroCity) and IC (InterCity). Seat reservations are
sometimes obligatory; check before boarding. Tickets can
be purchased at the the DB Centres in the stations, or book
online in advance at DB’s fabulous online train timetable at
www.bahn.de.
Berlin’s huge new glass-sheathed Hauptbahnhof main
station is where all regional and intercity trains stop.
The station has all the essentials; shopping mall, post
office, toilets and showers and the Infostore tourist
information centre. Zoo Bahnhof (Zoologischer Garten)
and Ostbahnhof (in Friedrichshain, 20 minutes away by
S-Bahn from Zoo Bahnhof) have been reduced to regional
train stations. All three stations are connected by the
main S-Bahn line, and some to the U-Bahn. Regional (RE)
trains along the elevated east-west track stop at Mitte’s
Alexanderplatz and Friedrichstraße stations as well. If
your ticket destination is ‘Berlin Stadtbahn’ you can use
it to travel further on the elevated S-Bahn track between
Charlottenburg and Ostbahnhof stations.
Taxis
Taxi drivers have a fine reputation in Berlin, and not only for
the splendid cream-coloured Mercedes they drive. Taxis
queue outside S- and U-Bahn stops, and can also be hailed
from the street at the same rate. The special €3.50 Kurz-
strecke is a set fare for short trips (2km or 5 minutes), and
can only be used in hailed cabs and if you mention it as soon
as you board. Calling a taxi is an option as well; mention to
the operator if you want to pay by credit card, as not all taxis
have card-reading equipment. By the way, Funk means radio.

ARRIVAL & TRANSPORT
Berlin has two airports (online at www.berlin-airport.de).
Tegel (TXL), the main airport, is 7km northwest of the
city centre. Behind the airport information desk in the
main hall are the BVG public transport ticket office
and the luggage office. Nearby are a post office and
ATMs. Tegel is well-connected to the city centre by bus;
the TXL JetExpressBus runs every 15-20 minutes
between 05:00 and 23:30, and is the quickest con-
nection to Hauptbahnhof station, Unter den Linden and
Alexanderplatz. Bus X9 (every 5-10 minutes from 04:50
to 23:00) gets you to Zoo Bahnhof in 20 minutes. Bus
N°109 heads to S-Bahn station Charlottenburg and
N°128 to U-Bahn station Osloer Straße. Single €2.10
tickets can be bought from machines outside or from
the driver, and are valid for two hours. A taxi to the city
centre will cost about €18.
Schönefeld airport (SXF) is 20km southeast of the city
centre and mostly serves budget flights and holiday char-
ters. A shuttle brings you to the nearby S-Bahn/railway
station. An Airport Express train from here reaches the
city centre in 30 minutes; the S-Bahn take about 40 min-
utes. Take bus X7 to U-Bahn station Rudow for Kreuzberg.

MPotsdamer Platz, tel. (+49)(0)30 25 48 89 99,
www.berlin-philharmonic.de. The crumpled-looking yellow
modernist building behind the chrome glitz of the Potsdamer
Platz developments was once just as revolutionary as its
new neighbour. The excellent Phil orchestra is directed by
Liverpudlian Sir Simon Rattle.
Staatsoper F/G-3, Unter den Linden 7, MI, MFranzö-
sische Str, tel. (+49)(0)30 20 35 45 55, www.staatsop-
er-berlin.org. A grand building on Berlin’s grandest boulevard,

Shows
Admiralspalast F-3, Friedrichstrasse 101, MI, tel. (+49)
(0)30 47 99 74 99, www.admiralspalast.de. Reopened
to the public in 2006, the Admiralspalast was originall y a
bathhouse and club for Prussian soldiers to relax in. Rebuilt
in 1911, it was famous in Berlin’s Roaring 20s for its cabaret,
operetta house, spa and brothel. Hitler cleaned up their acts
in the 1930s, installing a private box so that he could watch
his favourite operetta ‘The Merry Widow’, and in the 1940s the
building was spared war damage. Bertold Brecht used the the-
atre for his eyebrow-raising new theatre in the 1950s and 60s
before the theatre went into decline. The complex has been
restored (without the brothel) and is a new centre of nightlife.
Berliner Residenz Concert B-3, Spandauer Damm
22-24, Große Orangerie of Schloss Charlottenburg, tel.
(+49)(0)30 25 81 03 50, www.concerts-berlin.com. The

05 44 44 (€0.14/min), www.blueman.com. The (quite
literall y) Blue Man Group has been wowing audiences in the
US with a show that is a kaleidoscope, a whirl wind, a puzzle,
psychedelic, and many more adjecti ves that people just
haven’t managed to sum up the visually and musically power-
ful show with. Eminentl y suitable for foreigners, the little text
there is, is in English. Q Tue-Fri 21:00; Wed, Thu, Sat 18:00,
21:00; Sun 18:00. Tickets from €59,90 (plus charges). A
Friedrichstadtpalast F-3, Friedrichstr. 107, MI, MO-
ranienburger Tor, tel. (+49)(0)30 23 26 23 26, www.
friedrichstadtpalast.de. No one does over-the-top better

Friedrichstadtpalast. This venue normally puts on the glitziest,
biggest revues in town. Q Tickets €17 - 61.
Berlin’s top hotels all have concierges that are there
to make the guest’s lives easier. They can inform you
about current events, book tickets, make restaurant
reservations and hand out copies of Berlin In Your
Pocket, transport maps, and brochures. Concierges
can be recognised by the crossed golden keys on the
lapels of their jackets.
Ask the concierge
With three opera houses, seven resident orchestras, doz-

purchased at the venues, the tourism offices as well as at
one of many ticket kiosks (convenient ones are in Fried-

BLUE MAN GROUP is a spectacular show: pure fun, witty,
intelligent, unexpected – simply di fferent! BLUE MAN
GROUP thrills and provokes with creativity, comedy and
great music. An internationally unique mix of sweeping
concert atmosphere, high-class comedy and effects
like you have never experienced before. First BLUE MAN
GROUP goes under your skin – and then never out of
your head again. Unique in Europe it is staged in Berlin,
in BLUEMAX Theater Potsdamer Platz. An absolute must
for your Berlin visit. Entertainment for the whole family -
and naturally for guests from all over the world. For them
the show has been revised now. All German-speaking
elements were translatetd into English. More than this:
Language and words are elements of play – the irony
of the language has become a new factor of the show.
Exactly hearing and closer inspection leads to a cross-
linguistic show experience. BLUE MAN GROUP is now
more internationally, more communicatively – and just
in English, too. You cannot describe BLUE MAN GROUP,
you have to experience them!

German and English
From 15 October until 6 February 2011 the exhibition
Hitler and the Germans – Nation and Crime focuses on
the interrelationship between Hitler’s charismatic “Führer
power” and the expectations and behaviour of the “people”,
as Hitler’s power can not be explained by his personal traits,
but rather by the political and social conditions and mental
sensitivities of the German people. Topics discussed are
the conditions leading up to the accession to power, the
structures of the unrestricted politics of domination and
annihilation practised by the National Socialists as well as
the post-war history in the period after 1945. Numerous
objects present a twofold perspective: “from above” the role
of Hitler and the politics of the Nazi regime and “from below”
the collaboration and involvement of German society.

losterstr., tel. (+49)(0)30 242 55 28, www.zurletz-
teninstanz.de. Berlin’s oldest restaurant doesn’t lie on the
tourist path, and maybe that’s why German leaders bring
visiting heads of state here when everything in Mitte is too
noisy and crowded. Mikhail Gorbachev visited in 1989, and

Ständige Vertretung F-3, Schiffbauerdamm 8, MI,

staev.de. Bonn poli ti cians and bureaucrats were not
happy when they had to move to Berlin. They sent their
favori te Bonn hangout (named after the West-German
‘embassy’ in the GDR) as an advance scout. This laid-
back poli ti cian’s meeting point suppli es the homesi ck

Treffpunkt Berlin F-3, Mittelstr. 55, MI, MFriedrich-
str., tel. (+49)(0)30 204 18 19. This smoky pub is one
of the few simple places wi th a neighbhourhood feel off
Friedrichstr. The ki tchen turns out Berlin speciali ties and

MHackescher Markt, tel. (+49)(0)30 283 52 93, www.
hackescher-hof.de. This spacious restaurant at an eye-
catching position within the Hackesche Höfe complex didn’t
bother coming up with its own name, nor does it seem to
have invested any energy in coming up with a good team in
the kitchen. The food is disappointing, so best stick to coffee
and a snack. QOpen 07:00 - 03:00, Sat, Sun 09:00 - 03:00.

Mittmann’s G/H-3, Rungestr. 11, MI, MHeinrich-

manns.de. Old German advertising covers the brick walls
of this old-style Berlin restaurant that’s been here since
before the fall of the Wall. Now there’s American license
plates lining a ceiling beam. The wai t staff can make
suggestions based on what you’re in the mood for, and
the ki tchen does well wi th i ts Kalb (veal) and fish dishes.
The restaurant is on the small side, so consider making

3, tel. (+49)(0)30 238 28 34 70, www.berlin.radisson-
sas.com. The Atrium Lobby Lounge & Bar, underneath the
spectacular AquaDom with its 2500 fishes swirling around,
is the perfect place to meet up with friends for coffee and
cake, light snacks or to enjoy delicious cocktails to unwind

Belushi’s Bar G-2, Rosa Luxemburg Str. 39-41,
MRosa-Luxemburg-Platz, www.belushis.com. Belushi’s
is a home away from home for sports fans, beer lovers, and
connoisseurs of delicious home-made burgers. Based on the
American sports bar, this friendl y chain pub especiall y caters
for English speakers and anyone who can’t bear to miss a
crucial match. QOpen 12:00 - 24:00, Sat, Sun 12:00 - 02:00.
Delicious Doughnuts G-2, Rosenthaler Str. 9, MI,
MRosenthaler Pl., tel. (+49)(0)30 28 09 92 74, www.
doughnuts.de. Though the DJs in this loungy bar sometimes
don’t actuall y mix, the crowd does, and that’s what might
get you on the small dance floor. The cover runs €3 Wed
- Sat, but at least a standard cocktail is onl y €5. QOpen
22:00 - 03:00. E
Goldman’s Bar G-2, Weinbergsweg 1a, MI, MRosen-
thaler Pl., tel. (+49)(0)30 28 39 14 33. For a real tourist
information exchange, head to the basement of the Circus

night and quiz takes place Fridays. QOpen 21:00 - 01:00.
Keyser Soze F-2, Tucholskystr. 33, MI, MOranien-
burger Str., tel. (+49)(0)30 28 59 94 89. Crap service, but
this renowned bar is perfect on all other accounts. The food,
drinks, 20s-30s crowd, location, mysterious name, men’s
toilets and the fact that Toast Hawaii is listed under German
specialities all add to its greatness. We can recommend the
lamb chop, and Swabian specialities including Maultaschen
(meat-filled ravioli, Wed onl y). QOpen 08:00 - 03:00. B
Mai Tai Bar F-3, Mohrenstr. 30 (Hilton Hotel), MI,
MStadtmitte, tel. (+49)(0)30 202 30. There’s live music
nightl y, but no hula-dancing at this South Pacific-themed bar
fronting Trader Vic’s restaurant. The blue-li t ceiling casts
an underwater glow to the room, though the carpeting is
just wrong for a tropical paradise. The well-mixed cocktails’
names suggest narratives, like the Samoan Fog Cutter and
Suffering Bastard, but shouldn’t they be paying us to order
a drink that sounds like a disease - Shingle Stain? QOpen
18:00 - 01:00, Fri, Sat 18:00 - 02:00. E
Mitte Bar F-2, Oranienburger Str. 46, MI, MOranien-
burger Tor. Respectable enough for people with spending
power, yet shabby enough to fit seamlessl y into the Mitte
bar scene. A relaxed patch by day for French breakfast
or coffee-slurping, the evenings become interesting, wi th
cocktail-testing and on weekends DJs mixing house. QOpen
10:00 - 01:00.

de. Just down the street from the Neue Synagoge, Oranium
is a pleasant all-day café/restaurant/bar with plenty of dark
wood, a long bar and pretty lights. There are great breakfasts
(served until 16:00), lunches and good-value dinner options.
The menu is as international as it can get; for something
special try the German Wrap - wrapped around two kinds of
sausage - or the chicken with strawberry/chili sauce. Wash
it all down with a cocktail or two. QOpen 09:00 - 01:00, Fri,

sische Str., tel. (+49)(0)30 20 38 79 60. This sushi bar
caters less to the guests of the upscale hotels in the area
and more to shoppers and office workers on the go. If you’re
not quick enough to grab the pieces passing by on the bar’s
conveyor bel t, be patient and it will circle around again. If not,
ask the sushi chef stuck in the middle to whip a request off
for you. QOpen 12:00 - 23:00, Sun 18:00 - 23:00. (€1-7).
Reingold F-2, Novalisstr. 11, MI, MOranienburger Tor,

glowing in amber tones recalls the thirties with an oversize
drawing of Thomas Mann’s forlorn offspring, Klaus and Erika,

one dances here. It’s a setting for making stationary moves
on your date, or your tapas. QOpen 19:00 - 03:00, Fri, Sat
19:00 - 04:00. Closed Mon, Sun.
Silberfisch F-3, Oranienburger Str. 37, MI, MOra-
nienburger Str., tel. (+49)(0)30 28 38 73 88. In this
tiny, cave-like setting, off-duty wai ters mingle wi th people
who reall y shouldn’t be out that late. A DJ lays tracks from

This is the best option in Mi tte after other bars have closed.

into the earl y morning sun. QOpen 22:00 - 06:00, Fri, Sat

Kaffee Fröhlich H-2, Belforter Str. 22, PB, MSenefelder
Pl., tel. (+49)(0)30 41 72 52 42. Twenty-two years ago,
owner Herr Daska planted the trees that shade your Czech
or German beer. Patronized by neighbourhood intelligentsia,
grannies and young families, Kaffee Fröhlich isn’t a trendy
hotspot, but a place where Daska plans to grow old. The
menu of new and traditional Berlin cuisine changes dail y and
all sauces and condiments are house-made. Breakfast is
served until 16:00 and the last call for supper is 23:00. Feel

Die Schule G-2, Kastanienallee 82, PB, MEberswalder

de. Modern and light German food on Berlin’s prime catwalk.
Kastanienallee, also known as casting alley, is a perfect place
to watch Berlin street style. Die Schule has a terrace facing
the street and the airy interiors belie that these rooms used
to be classrooms (hence the name). You can have all the Ger-
man food classics, and even better: you can have them all at
once: try German Kleinigkeiten, small samples of everything
the local cuisine is famous for. QOpen 11:00 - 24:00. BW
Metzer Eck G-2, Metzer Str. 33, PB, MSenefelder Pl., tel.

time seems to have stood still in the oldest tavern in Prenzlauer
Berg - and that’s the way the regulars like it. The Eck serves
inexpensive Berlin dishes - sausages, Boulette (hamburger),
and Bratkartoffel (fried potatoes), and has a letter from artist
Heinrich Zille to the first tavern owner hanging on the back wall,
as well as a savings box that regulars once contributed to. Q

Prenzlauer Berg
For a night out with the locals, head out into a Kiez, the generic
term for a particularly lively sub-neighbourhood of a city district.
Eating out and bar hopping is easy in Berlin because there
are so many restaurants, bars, pubs and clubs to dip and dive
your way through. With all the choices in each neighbourhood,
people tend to stick to one area once the night begins (or if
they’re exhausted from the sightseeing, to stay close to their
hotel). Though there’s a range of places in each district, bars in
Potsdamer Platz and western Berlin are often more clean-cut
and targeted at the over-30 set. Prenzlauer Berg and Kreuz-
berg have a mix of hole-in-the-wall and trendy venues, while
Friedrichshain is really for the unwashed and adventurous.

Clinton made a surprise visit to this former working-class district

Schnitzelei B-3, Röntgenstr. 7, CB, MRichard-Wagner-
Pl, tel. 34 70 27 78, www.schnitzelei.de. Nearl y as far
from central Berlin as Austria, Schnitzelei is well off the beaten
track, but well worth looking up. No tacky alpine decorations
here, but a light take on the genre, with oak patterns and
subdued lighting creating a good vibe. There are delicious

Some of Berlin’s best restaurants reside in hotels in
the Charlottenburg district (C-3), and there are plenty
of esteemed chef-owned restaurants as well. Places in
Schöneberg (D-4) and western Tiergarten (D-3) are
also listed here. West Berliners tend to be more affluent
and fashion-conscious, and the bar and restaurant scene
caters to that. Young people go out here too, but those
over thirty will appreciate the more professional service,
more mature company, and the low count of penny-
pinching hipsters.

Hard Rock Café C-4, Meinekestr. 21, CB, MUhland-

ers and locals looking for huge piles of food (ranging from
burgers and pasta to Tex-Mex) and staff who actuall y like

Julep’s New York Bar & Restaurant B-4, Giesebre-

York speakeasy - an illegal bar during the prohibition years
in the U.S. - but what law-dodging drinker was ever privilege
to home-baked bread, house-smoked fish and chicken, and
friendl y service? Don’t expect a bar menu: the caliber of the
kitchen overseen by a culinary institute-trained New Jersey
native matches that of the expertl y made cocktails. Even a
simple appetizer like potato chips comes homemade with
lemon-pepper oil and rosemary sea sal t. Menu items change

October - November 2010 berlin.inyourpocket.com
The European Month of Photography, hel d in Berlin
and various other European cities from 15 October to 28
November, is the largest photography festival in Europe.
Dozens of institutes showcase exhibitions and hold special
events to promote historical and contemporary photography.
This year's theme Modern Life, New Images intends to
show how photography has helped shape society since
industrialisation. Find exhibi tions in various museums,
institutions and galleries across Berlin.
The Berlin Conference on Future Breakthroughs in
Science and Society, held on 7 and 8 November, tries to
answer the question which Walls will be next to fall, which
sel f-imposed limi tations need to be removed to make
way for scientific progress. First held as a one-off Falling
Walls conference in 2009, it was such a success that the
organisers decided to make it an annual event.
Finally, the main event in the Berlin Science Year is the
exhibition World Knowledge - 300 Years of the Sciences
in Berlin, held in the Martin-Gropius-Bau until 9 January 2011.
Using illustrative stories of objects, researchers and institutions,
it offers insight into the sciences. It illustrates how scientists
developed Berlin into a metropolis of science with a multitude
of institutions and museums. The last such exhibition in Berlin
took place in 1987, on either side of the Berlin Wall, and now
scientific progress in the reunited city is shown for the first time.
The exhibited objects included 18th century drawings from
Egypt, sketches by Albert Einstein's about his relativity theory,
anatomical preparations from the world-famous collection of
physician Rudolf Virchow, and the Hahn Table which was used
for the first demonstration of nuclear fission in 1938. From
current research projects there are 3D photos of Mars, and
old manuscripts from the Silk Route. A spectacular installation
in the main atrium is a huge shelving unit that US artist Mark
Dion has filled with objects he found in Berlin's vast museum
collections. A fascinating exhibition.
For more information see www.weltwissen-berlin.de. Every
Saturday at 14:30 there is a free English-language guided tour.

Berlin Year of Science
When the Kingdom of Prussia was founded in the early
19th century, rapid reforms and modernisation lead to the
establishment of the first large academic institutions. In
1810, Berlin's famed Humboldt University was founded,
and as a spin-off, various small collections were uni fied
into the grand Naturkundemuseum. Scienti fic research
was gi ven an i mmense boost, and Germany headed
into i ts l ong sci enti fi c gol den age. As more museums
and educational institutes were opened, Berlin got the
nickname Athens on the Spree. Famed people such as
Leibniz, Frederick the Great, Humboldt, Schinkel, Hegel,
Virchow, Helmholtz, Koch, Planck and Einstein were all
closely associated with Berlin.
Now in 2010, five of Berlin's oldest and internationally best-
known scientific institutions (allof them depicted on these
pages) are celebrating their anniversaries: the Humboldt
University is 200, the Charité hospital is 300 years, as are
the first statute and first publication by the Academy of the
Sciences and it's also 100 years since the Max Planck and
Kaiser Wilhelm Society were founded.
The good news is that all scientific institutions in the city have
been invited to join the party, with exhibitions, lectures, film
screenings, conferences and other activities taking place
all year (see www.wissenschaftberlin2010.de), relating to
the main themes of medicine and health, living worlds and
micro-systems, energy and climate, transport and mobility,
language and communication, culture and societies, and
the scienti fic society and education. With these events,
Berlin is celebrated as a major scientific location of the past,
present and future, and the significance of science and the
effects it has on our daily life is made clear. Poignantly for
Germany, some events also highlight the misuse of science
as an instrument of evil over the past centuries, and call for
responsible use of discoveries.
The Museum für Naturkunde Berlin has a proud history
of 200 years of collecting, preserving, researching and
educating. Wi th over 30 million obj ects in i ts massi ve
collection, it's a museum that keeps visitors fascinated for
hours. The new wing of the museum, opened in September
after 60 years of disuse following WW2 destruction, hosts
the anniversary exhibition, focusing on the previous work
of famous museum scientists and the development of the
collections. Until 28 February 2011 the exhibition Class –
Order – Species shows documents of remarkable historical
expeditions, as well as hidden treasures from our collections.
Interestingly, the new wing also holds the museum's valuable
'wet collection' of over one million obj ects in 276,000
alcohol-filled jars.

Gendarmenmarkt F-3, Charlottenstr, MI, MFranzö-
sische Str.. Twin cathedrals-turned-museums (dating to
the earl y 1700s) and the Konzerthaus (from 1818, by Carl
Langhans) make up this classic square in Berlin. I t’s so
classic Berlin that wi th the adding of a lion statue here, a
fountain there, the film production team of Jackie Chan’s
Around the World in Eighty Days turned i t into 19th-century
London in 2003. Luxury hotels use their posi tion bordering

the mid-1700s when mili tary regiments were stationed

Neue Synagoge F-3, Oranienburger Str. 28-30, MI,

Nikolaiviertel G-3, Between Rathausstr. and Müh-
lendamm, MI, MAlexanderpl., www.stadtmuseum.de.
Berlin’s tiny medieval heart is the Nikolai Quarter, whose only
truly medieval-looking building today is the Nikolaikirche (the
twin-spired, stone church; open 10:00-18:00, €5/3). The
church dates to 1230 and was rebuilt along with the entire
quarter in the mid-80s to mark Berlin’s 750th birthday in the
area in which the fishermen’s settlement first began. No one
was trying to outdo Walt Disney here, and many of the buildings
have the simple, concrete facades that the Communist govern-
ment could afford. The small shops in the area mostly deal in
toys and souvenirs and tourists gladly fill the sunny tables at
the restaurants that face the Spree River. On Rathausstraße,
there’s a row of restaurants that flaunt old-fashioned Berlin
cuisine and atmosphere. Other rebuil t historic buildings in
the area date to the 1700s, such as the Ephraim-Palais and
Knoblauchhaus. Both have changing exhibits related to Berlin.
Potsdamer Platz E/F-4,, MPotsdamer Pl.. Once the
modern heart of a thriving metropolis, this urban centre was
heavily damaged in the war, and suffered again when remaining
buildings were pulled down to make way for the Wall’s death
strip. After years of construction in the mid-90s, skyscrapers
have added a cosmopolitan and glassy edge to the city. The
literal Potsdamer Platz is an intersection, and the east side of it,
known as Leipziger Platz, is slowly building up in height as well.
Potsdamer Platz’s most popular public space and architectural
attraction is The Sony Center, with its huge atrium and tent-
like roof. It’s best to view at night for its impressive lighting. The
neighbouring DaimlerChrysler complex holds architecture by
Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, and the Arkaden shopping mall,
with rather humdrum shops, but the best gelato café in the city.

de/htdocs_e/visitors. The name together wi th i ts
monumental size make most people associate Germany’s
neoclassi cal parliamentary building wi th the Nazis, but
Hi tler and his party have li ttle history here. After hosting
parliamentary sessions since 1894, one month after Hitler
was appointed chancellor in January 1933, it was set on fire
by Dutch communist Marinus van der Lubbe. In the years
during which it abutted the Wall as a conference centre, West
Berliners played football on its lawn, while later artist Christo
famously wrapped it in cloth. It did not serve as parliament
again until a reunited German government returned to Berlin
in 1999. Renovated by Sir Norman Foster, this building is
perhaps the most public federal building in the world through
its glass-dome tourist attraction. On the rooftop, photographs
documenting the building’s history circle the rim above the
parliament chamber. Two ramps spiral up the side of the dome,
an engineering feat even more fascinating than the panoramic
view from the top. Avoid long queues by arriving early or late,
or by booking at the Dachgarten restaurant. QOpen 08:00 -
24:00. Last admission at 22:00. Admission free.

Berlin is a huge, fascinating city, but lacks a real Old
Town-type area. Attractions are fairly far-flung, so plan
your itinerary and get acquainted with the excellent public
transporation. If you’re here for a limited amount of time,
we recommend you join one of the walking tours to get
your bearings and see the main sights.
Classic sights include the Brandenburger Tor and the
nearby Reichstag with its glass dome, the Berliner
Dom (the main cathedral), the museum-churches and
concert house on Gendarmenmarkt and the Neue
Synagoge. Fans of modern architecture shouldn’t miss
the Potsdamer Platz area and the Jewish Museum.
Finally, you can’t leave Berlin without a peek at one of
the remnants of the Wall and the ruin of the Kaiser
Wilhelm Memorial Church.
Essential Berlin
Brandenburger Tor F-3, Pariser Pl, MI, MUnter den
Linden. Berlin’s landmark building is one of 14 gates com-
pleted in 1792 by Carl Langhans. Nike, the goddess of victory,
drives the chariot atop the gate, and German armies used to
begin their parades here. The proud gate opens onto Pariser
Platz, and it may as well have been buil t by the communists,
so linked in people’s minds is it to the double-wall system that
essentiall y bricked it in. Fascists spoiled the gate as well by
staging their torch-lit parades through it. Berliners celebrated
the Wall’s fall in 1989 by standing on it in front of the gate.
Gedächtniskirche (Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial
Church) D-4, Breitscheidpl, CB, MKurfürstendamm,
tel. 218 50 23, www.gedaechtniskirche-berlin.de. The
major attraction in what was West Berlin is this stark reminder
of World War II’s destruction. Kept as an open wound, the
severe acknowledgement of German culpability is declared on
a plaque near the entrance of the old bell tower: ‘The tower of
the old church serves as a remembrance of God’s judgment,
which befell our people during the war years.’ Berliners hold
little sacred and call the destroyed tower the hollow tooth.
The erection of the once enormous church dedicated to the
German emperor had been a feat of national pride: even syna-
gogues contributed to its funding, and it was first opened in
1895. Inside is a gilded mosaic of the Hohenzollern dynasty.
The modern chapel and tower next door were completed in
1961, and are worth entering on sunny days for the amazing
blue stained glass windows. Q Old tower open 10:00 - 16:00,
closed Sun. Memorial church open 09:00 - 19:00.

sion the famed Karl Friedrich Schinkel recei ved in Berlin.

who was the first woman to allowed membership to

in front of the sculpture reads To the victims of war and

1931, when the building first became a war memorial.

Museums
Because of its long period of separation, Berlin in ef-
fect has two cities’ worth of museums, and the quality
is proportional to the quantity. The state museums,
many clustered on Museumsinsel (Museum Island),
at the Kulturforum next to Potsdamer Platz, and near
Schloß Charlottenburg, include audio guides and have
a combined ticket system (see the ticket options). The
free Museum infoline (tel. 90 26 99 444) has all details

was j oined by bi g names such as Paul Kl ee, Wassil y Kan-
dinsky, Ludwi g Mi es van der Rohe, and was influenced by
Piet Mondriaan and Marc Chagall. Bauhaus’ top years were
in the late 1920s. Soon after, Nazi poli ti cs put an end to
the liber ti es of the group, whi ch was branded ‘cul turall y
bolshevisti c’ and i t was forced to move to Berlin. Many

de. You’d think that the art world had gone to minimalist ex-
tremes when passing Mies van der Rohe’s empty glass box
of a museum; the 20th century treasures are all underground.
It was here that the wildly successful “MoMA in Berlin” exhibit
was on view 24 hours during its last three days. Now that the
guest exhibit is gone, the permanent collection greats: Otto
Dix, Georg Grotz, Paul Klee, Wassil y Kandinsky, Picasso and
Leger, among others, can make themsel ves at home again.

blue and red periods are well represented, as are portraits
of his lovers. Providing variety are works by Matisse and

COLD WAR BERLIN
The physical division of Berlin during 28 years, and the
development of two completely separated cities on both
sides of the Wall that ran between them, has led to huge
differences that cannot be erased in a matter of a few
years. Here‘s an overview of sights that give insight into
life with the Wall.
Alliiertenmuseum (Allied Museum) Clayallee 135,
ZD, MOskar-Helena-Heim, tel. 818 19 90, www.al-
liiertenmuseum.de. The Allied Museum covers 50 years of
West German-Allied (US, British, French) relations in the US
Army movie house Outpost. The prize exhibit is the original
sentry box from the Checkpoint Charlie border crossing.
QOpen 10:00 - 18:00. Closed Wed. Admission free.
Berlin Wall Memorial F-2, Bernauer Str. 111,
MNordbahnhof, tel. 464 10 30, www.berliner-mauer-
dokumentationszentrum.de. This excellent information
centre covers the Wall’s history in film, slides, and English
text. German speakers can listen to the propaganda of the
Studio at the Barbed Wire broadcasts, which vans blasted
via bullhorns to East German border guards between 1961
and 1965. The guards often drowned out the message from
the West by playing music. A graffiti-free portion of preserved
Wall runs along Bernauer Straße; you can walk behind it and
peer through a crack to see a preserved section of death
strip. One stop by tram M10 from the S-Bahn station. QOpen
10:00 - 17:00. Closed Mon. Admission free.
Deutsch-Russisches Museum Zwieseler Str. 4 (cor-
ner of Rheinstr.), MKarlshorst, tel. 50 15 08 41, www.
museum-karlshorst.de. In the southeast, the building where
Germany signed its surrender in May 1945 now serves as the
Deutsch-Russisches Museum Berlin-Karlshorst. More rooms
focus on World War II, but exhibits include Soviet relations to both
East and West Germany and ‘the presence of the war following
the war’. QOpen 10:00 - 18:00. Closed Mon. Admission free.
Haus am Checkpoint Charlie (The Wall Museum)
F-4, Friedrichstr. 43-45, KB, MKochstr., tel. 253 72 50,
www.mauer-museum.com. A homespun Great Escape
museum of false trunks, tools, videos and stills of tunnel-
digging - and a submarine - attest to necessity and desire
being the mother of invention. Visit this museum for dramatic
stories of separated lovers, freedom-seeking families, and
fed-up senior citizens in the GDR who eventuall y breached
the Wall. A worthwhile stop, though unfortunatel y, the poor
translations and outdated texts do li ttle to illuminate the
events leading up to the Wall’s construction. The museum
also has art interpreting the concrete division of the city, an
exhibi t on human rights movements, and film screenings.
QOpen 09:00 - 22:00. Admission €9.50/5.50.
Stasi Museum (Forschungs- und Gedenkstätte
Normannenstraße) Ruschestraße 103, Haus 1, FH,
MMagdalenenstr., tel. 553 68 54, www.stasimuseum.
de. East Germany’s State Securi ty Service or Stasi was
responsible for intelligence gathering both at home and
abroad. It spied on its own citizens, sometimes employing
the friends, colleagues, and famil y of those they wished to
keep an eye on. Today, this humble museum shows the office
of Erich Mielke, the Stasi minister for 32 years, in its original
dull state. In the former cafeteria you can watch a video of
Mielke testifying before a panel in 1989. Symbols of Com-
munist kitsch can be found in one room, and documents in
German make up the bulk of the exhibits. English tours are
available with advance request. QOpen 11:00 - 18:00, Sat,
Sun 14:00 - 18:00. Admission €3.50.
Trabi Safari F-3, Zimmerstr. 97, MStadtmitte, tel. 27
59 22 73, www.trabi-safari.de. East Germany’s cuddl y
two-stroke 26hp plastic car, recognisable by the charac-
teristic bem-bem sound and cloud of smoke, has nearl y
been wiped off the streets of Berlin. On a Trabi safari you
are shown how to operate the revol ver-like gearshi ft and
then off you go on an hour-long trip through the eastern
part of town in a column of up to si x farting Trabis. Choose
from a fleet of 60 colourful cars, zebra-striped, cabriolet
or streched. Find Trabi Safari at the Wel t Balloon near
Checkpoint Charli e. QOpen 10:00 - 18:00. Day trips
10:00-18:00, Night trips 20:00-24:00. From €30/person,

Brachiosaurus brancai, will have both children and parents
astounded – and Berlin’s wonderful natural history museum
has much more. Poke fun at the aardvarks, learn about
meteorites, see the world’s most famous fossil (the ancient
bird Archaeopteryx lithographica), and teach children all
about the evolution of life on earth, as well as the diversity

You could ruin a good set of heels window-shopping in
Berlin.
Stroll Kurfürstendamm, particularly between Uhlandstr.
and Adenauerpl., for Versace, Jil Sander, Gucci, and Sonia
Rykiel. If you’re looking for something other than the same
old same old, follow Berliners to the boutiques of Annette
Peterman and Nanna Kuckuck on Bleibtreustr.
With the exception of Berlin’s proudest department store,
Kaufhaus des Westens (KaDeWe, ‘Department store of
the west’), Tauentzienstr. is lined with mass market retail
stores. KaDeWe has an excellent selection of foods as
well as a vast array of services, from umbrella repair to
tailoring.
Mitte’s credit card trail is Friedrichstr., between Unter
den Linden and Stadtmitte. Tank-size Bentleys and
costly ounces of French perfume now define the street
where Soviets and Americans faced off in the Cold War.
The Friedrichstadtpassagen and Galeries Lafayette (with
a fascinating interior and gourmet basement) are the main
emporiums. Mitte’s maze of streets around Weinmeister-
str. is where to find what’s driving the under-thirty crowd
into debt. Half-sewn shirts are the new prêt-a-portier.
Kreuzberg, where the protesting students of 1968 have
grown grey alongside Turkish immigrants, has two main
shopping streets. Between bars and take-out eateries
on Oranienstr. are bookstores, wool specialists, ethnic
grocers, internet cafés and Luzifer, a long-time maker of
monotone linen and wool clothing. Bergmannstr. is less
scruffy but still full of funky gift and household supply
stores, as well as a few clothing stores.
Full of people under thirty, Prenzlauer Berg is where to
watch the trends. Kastanianallee and Szredzkistr. are
two streets to comb, but you’re likely to find an interesting
window display wherever you walk.
Antiques
Antique stores cluster so conveniently together that it
takes all the fun out of having a private driver. Keithstr.,
a two-minute walk from U-Bahn station Wittenbergpl.,
is lined with shops. The area around Nollendorfpl. -
Eisenacher Str., Motzstr., and Nollendorfstr. - is another
centre of dust-collection. The holdings of the shops
along Georgenstr. can’t be too precious because their
roof is the S-Bahn track between Hackescher Markt and
Friedrichstr.

Telephone
Berlin’s telephone code is 030. When phoning between Ger-
man cities, the full city code including the zero must be used.
Calls to mobiles (Handys in German) require the initial zero.
To call abroad, dial 00 followed by the international country
code and the local number. To call Germany from abroad,
dial the international access code followed by the German
country code (49), and the city code (Berlin 030, Frankfurt
069, Munich 089) or mobile number, dropping the initial zero.
Most public telephones are card-operated.

Money
The only good way to get euros in Germany is to stick your
debit card (with a 4-digit PIN code) into an ATM (bank-
omat in German). Your bank charges you a small transfer
fee (usually €1-2) and calculates the exchange rate using
the bank’s middle rate, which is usually better than the
rate that you get at the exchange offices or banks. Credit
cards can also be used in many ATMs, but may charge
high commissions. When changing cash, shop around i f you
plan to change a large amount - commissions and rates
di ffer. Traveller’s Cheques are outdated and practically
superfluous in Europe, but many banks and exchange of-
fices still accept them.

FOREWORD
Throughout the 19th century, Berlin ranked as one of the most important cities in the world for scientific research and discovery. Brainy types flocked to the city, universities, libraries and institutes were opened and Germans spread over the world to explore new regions, bringing back strange plants, animals and stories. Although Berlin lost out somewhat to new scientific centres in the USA, UK and Asia, the city still has what it takes to grab the occasional Nobel prize. This year, five grand old institutions celebrate their collective anniversary with the Science Year, packed with events, some of which are English-language and accessible to visitors. See p.48 for more details. Berlin’s regular event calendar is also packed with exciting concerts, exhibitions and trade fairs; in the exhibition Hitler and the Germans – Nation and Crime, the German Historical Museum shows how Hitler fascinated Germans in the 1930s. See p.9 for the full listings. And if all that is not enough to fulfil your wildest Berlin desires, just wait until the last week of November when Berlin’s Christmas markets set up their stalls, heat up their mulled wine and open to the public in advance of the winter holidays. Whatever you do this autumn, send us your comments at berlin@inyourpocket.com. Enjoy Berlin.

BERLIN DISTRICTS
Greeting
Sin ce th e fall o f th e B e r l i n Wa l l a ro u n d 2 0 y e a r s a go, B e r l i n h a s experienced breakneck change: its infrastructure was modernized from the ground up, while entire city districts were either created from scratch or thoroughly remodeled. Moreover, Berlin has become a capital not only in the political sense, but culturally and intellectually as well. As a result, it is now considered one of the most exciting and diverse cities in all of Europe. Berlin finds its positive image reflected in its tourist industry statistics: more and more people are visiting our city to see its countless attractions for themselves. These include, for example, the ubiquitous traces of a turbulent and emotional history and the city’s compelling museums, which invite you to browse the world’s cultures. The contemporary art scene, too, has long since found a home in Berlin, proof of which can be seen in the city’s hundreds of galleries, many stellar collections – often exhibited in innovative settings – and, most recently, the new temporary art gallery in the heart of the city. Great art can of course also be experienced in Berlin’s opera houses and its many renowned theaters. Its wide range of orchestras – including the Berliner Philharmoniker, the Staatskapelle, the Deutsches Symphonie Orchester, the Rundfunksinfonie Orchester, and countless others – is unmatched in its quality and diversity. And let’s not forget Berlin’s exciting club scene and the many different restaurants, pubs, and bars that make the city the place to be for anyone looking for cosmopolitan flair and the latest trends. In this spirit, I would like to wish you an eventful stay in Germany’s capital city – welcome to Berlin! Berlin is four times the size of Paris, and even though the city consolidated its 23 districts into 12 in 2001, you’re still left with 23 self contained areas (Kieze) in which Berliners often find everything they need. Public transportation is far-reaching and effective though, and you’ll grow to love it as you shuttle between the four areas with the most sights: Charlottenburg, Tiergarten, Mitte and Kreuzberg.

Prenzlauer Berg (PB)
On a low hill northeast of Mitte, ‘Prenzl’ Berg’ is an old working-class district in the former East Berlin that came through the war relatively unscathed. The best places to soak up the atmosphere are Kollwitzpl, Helmholzpl. and along Kastanienallee (all near U-Bahn Eberswalderstr.). Prenzlauer Berg’s few attractions include the Vitra Design museum and a 19th-century brewery complex that is now the Kulturbrauerei culture centre. A good time to visit is Saturday when the ecomarket is open on Kollwitzplatz, or Sunday when everyone sits outside being cool and eating breakfast all day.

Mitte (MI)
Since reunification, Mitte has rightly snatched back the title of most-visited district from Charlottenburg. On and off the boulevard Unter den Linden, whose trees Marlene Dietrich once extolled in song, are baroque and classical monuments to Prussian culture. The proximity of state libraries, the State Opera, Humboldt University, the old Arsenal (now the German History Museum), Gendarmenmarkt, Museum Island, Berliner Dom, and the abandoned East German Parliament building make for more talk, less walk tours. The architecturally humbler area of Mitte is the Scheunenviertel, whose layout looks as if 17th-century planners got interrupted during a game of pick-up sticks. It’s on these streets that the casually chic saunter from courtyard gallery to sidewalk café, pointing out directions to tourists seeking out the latest hotspots or traces of the Jewish community that lived here from the late 17th-century until the mass deportations of the Nazi era.

Further afield
Districts mostly known for their restaurant and nightlife scene are Schöneberg (SB), the centre of gay Berlin, and Friedrichshain (FH), filled with creatively tattered and tattooed students. Berlin has green spots galore, and after Tiergarten the most popular getaways are the Grunewald forest and lake Wannsee, in the southwest district of Zehlendorf (ZD).

Europe In Your Pocket

Charlottenburg (CB)
If downtown to you means wide, traffic-filled streets, crowds of shoppers, five-star hotels and tall buildings, then Charlottenburg comes closest to fitting the bill in Berlin. Much of what was here was bombed in the war and built anew in the 1950s. The nexus of activity is the knot where Kufürstendamm, Joachimsthaler Str, Bahnhof Zoo and Tauentzienstr. come together. Follow what becomes an increasingly silken ribbon down Kurfürstendamm (Ku’damm) and the setting becomes more genteel where you can’t see the buildings for the trees. Nearby but isolated from the hoi polloi is Schloss Charlottenburg, the residence of King Friedrich I.

Cover story
Th e s u n s e t s b e h i n d t h e Fernsehturm TV tower and the Rotes Rathaus city hall in central Berlin, seen from a boat on the Spree River near Jannowitzbruecke. The landmark 368-metre-high television broadcast tower was completed in 1969 and has a restaurant with a rotating floor and a viewing gallery.

Tiergarten (TG)
Tiergarten is both a district and the name of the 255 hectare park that began as the Great Elector’s hunting grounds in the 1600s and became increasingly more civilised with landscaping in the 1800s. Traffic passes through it, doing a dosey-doe around the Siegessäule (Victory Column). Slicing though the park’s length is Str. des 17. Juni, which leads to the Brandenburg Gate at the eastern end. Just south of it are the museums of the Kulturforum and Potsdamer Pl.

Kreuzberg (KB)
Thanks to a large Turkish community and more hippies, anarchists and alternative folks than you can shake a didgeridoo at, Kreuzberg feels neither East nor West. It was the black sheep of West Berlin, left alone in its far-off room to play loud music and draw on the walls (literally, it was parked in a dead-end, cornered by The Wall). In 1987 social and economic frustration exploded into violence and vandalism during the traditionally political demonstrations of May Day. Every year since, the city prepares for a long night of stone-throwing and burning automobiles. May 1st is essentially Kreuzberg’s way of reliving its 15 minutes of fame. The rest of the days are marked by backgammon at the men’s clubs, café-sitting on the Landwehrkanal, and ambling down the popular drags Oranienstr. and Bergmannstr. Two major museums, the House at Checkpoint Charlie and the Jewish Museum, are planted in the staid parts of the district.
