April and May are the sweetest of months in Berlin,
as the weary locals wake up from another harsh
winter, blinking their eyes in the sudden sunlight
and realising the cold is finally gone. There’s a
sense of jubilation as Berliners flock back to the
parks and lakes. Nowhere can the joy be felt more
profoundly than at one of many street festivals; the
season kicks off with the May Day celebrations in
Kreuzberg (see p. 54).
Berlin’s museums and galleries have plenty of
distraction to offer as well this spring, while the
theatre and opera season is in full swing too -
see the events listings from p. 9 for details and
a selection of events. April sees Spree river tour
companies pick up steam again, and we can highly
recommend trying the full 5-hour tour on a warm
sunny day; find our river cruise tips on page 56.
Whatever you do in Berlin this spring, make sure to
let us know of any tips or comments you may have,
at berlin@inyourpocket.com. Enjoy Berlin.

Since the fall of the Berlin Wall
nearl y 25 years ago, Berlin
has experienced breakneck
change: i ts i nfrastructure
was moderni zed from the
ground up, while entire city
districts were either created
from scratch or thoroughl y
remodeled. Moreover, Berlin
has become a capi tal 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!

Drinks & Alcohol
Germans like their beer, drinking about 107 litres per capita
per year (down from 136 litres 15 years ago). Unfortunately
Berlin's local brew, the slightly sour Berliner Weiße, is only
really palatable 'mit Schuss', with a shot of sweet fruit sirup.
Cocktails and long drinks of varying quality and price are
available in a multitude of places. Non-alcoholic drinks often
sipped in Berlin include Apfelschorle, a refreshing mix of apple
juice and sparkling water, and Club-Mate ('kloob mah-tea')
ice tea, made with extract of the South American maté plant,
caffeine and tannins, and is popular with local hipsters as it
comes in a screw top bottle so you can hiply tote it around
(or drink to just below the top label and top it up with wodka).
Crime & Safety
Berlin is a relatively calm and safe place. Instances of
petty crimes are low compared to other Western European
capitals, though you shoulds still always keep an eye on your
valuables and never leave bags, wallets and mobile phones
unattended. Just like anywhere else, be careful when walking
in unlit streets late at night. Race-related hassles seldom
occur in Berlin's touristed central areas.
Electricity
Electrical current in Germany is 220v AC, 50 Hz via standard
European round, two-pin sockets. Converters can be bought
at the airport and large electronics shops, and many hotels
will have them at the front desk too.
Money
Germany uses the euro (€). Banknotes come in denominations
of €5, €10, €20, €50, €100, €200 and €500. Coins, whose
design depends on in which country they were minted, come
in denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 cents and €1 and
€2. Credit and debit card payment is possible in a wide range
of shops, restaurants and nightlife venues, though always
have cash on you for small payments just in case. This guide
indicates which places do not accept plastic. ATMs can be
found everywhere; those that charge for transactions clearly
indicate the fee during the process. Exchange offices can be
found at the major train stations.
Visas and entry formalities
EU citizens can stay in Germany as long as they like, though
registration at a Bürgeramt office is officially required
for stays more than a few months. Citizens of Australia,
Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Mexico
USA and a few others can enter Germany without a visa for

TRANSPORT
Berlin In Your Pocket berlin.inyourpocket.com
Although Berlin is lodged in the middle of the great empty vast-
ness of northeast Germany, it‘s very well connected to the rest
of civilisation by bus, train, Autobahn and air. Once in Berlin,
you‘ll wish that your home town had such good public transport.
Public transport
Berlin‘s integrated network of U-Bahn (Untergrundbahn,
underground trains), bus, and Straßenbahn (trams) run by
BVG and S-Bahn and RE (Schnellbahn and regional commuter
trains run by DB) usually works like a dream. Just remember the
number or colour and end station of the line you want to use,
and you‘ll be navigating the labyrinth-like stations like a local.
Most S/U-Bahn trains, buses and trams run every 5-15 min-
utes during the day. M buses and trams run every half hour at
night; U-Bahn trains run every 15 minutes on weekend nights,
with N buses following their routes every half hour (starting
from Hackescher Markt) on weekday nights.
Tickets can be used on all BVG, S-Bahn and local RE train
services. Vending machines have instructions in English and
accept coins, often banknotes and cards too. Berlin‘s AB
travel zone contains nearly everything; you‘ll only need an
ABC-ticket for Potsdam and Schoenefeld airport.
With a Einzelfahrschein (AB-zone €2,40, ABC €3,10) you can
travel one-way for up to two hours with unlimited transfers;
it‘s cheaper to buy four tickets at once (VIer-Fahrten-Karte,
€8.40). Buy a €1,40 Kurzstrecke (short distance) ticket if
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, get
the Tageskarte (day card, valid until 03:00 the next morning;
€6,50) or the seven-day pass (€28). Groups of up to five
people are best off with a Kleingruppenkarte (group day
ticket, €15,50). The multi-day Berlin Welcomecard is valid
for transport and some attractions.
Before boarding the S- or U-Bahn, always validate your
ticket by punching it in the yellow or red machines near the
end of the platforms. On buses and trams, the machines
are on board. Public transport uses the honour system,
and there are regular checks by uniformed and plainclothes
inspectors. If you are caught without a ticket (or with an
unvalidated one) you‘ll be fined €40 on the spot.
Taxis
Berlin‘s friendly and ubiquitous beige Mercedes taxis can
be called or hailed on the street. They can also be found
queing at S/U-Bahn stations and near nightlife hotspots.
Not all taxis accept credit cards, ask when you book. Prices
are the same day and night; flagfall plus the first kilometre
is €3,40; then up to 7km it‘s €1,65/km, thereafter €1,28/
km. Waiting costs €25/hr. For short hops hail a taxi already
driving in the direction you need to go and immediately ask
for the Kurzfahrstrecke tarri ff; €4 for 2km. By the way,
Funk means radio.

Driving
With wide roads, calm traffic and ample free parking, Berlin
is one of the easiest European capitals to navigate by
car, though for city centre sightseeing public transport is
definitely easier.

All cars entering the city centre within the S-Bahn ring must
have an Umwelt-Plakette (environmental badge sticker),
which can be ordered online before your trip (for around €30)
via the Climate Company, www.umwelt-plakette.de, tel. +49
30 398 87 21 40, or purchased (from €5,50) at Dekra and
TÜV garages around Berlin.
Cycling
As long as it‘s dry, getting around Berlin is really best done
by bicycle. It‘s a flat city, there are plenty of cycle paths and
wide bus lanes for you to use and you see so much more
from the saddle than from the U-Bahn train window. Note
that cycling on the pavement is illegal and may get you fined,
even though everyone does it. Cycling across town may
take a while, though for €1,60 you can take your bike on an
S/U-Bahn train too. There are dozens of bike rental places,
most charging €10-12 per day. The urban bike trip planner
www.bbbike.de can suggest low-traffic and cobblestone-free
routes across Berlin.

Driving
With wide roads, calm traffic and ample free parking, Berlin
is one of the easiest European capitals to navigate by
car, though for city centre sightseeing public transport is
definitely easier.
By plane
Tegel airport (TXL) 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. The TXL bus
runs every 15-20 minutes between 05:00 and 23:30,
and is the quickest connection 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. AB zone tickets can be bought from the
BVG kiosk, the machines outside, or from the driver. A
taxi to the city centre will cost about €18.
Schönefeld airport (SXF) is 20km southeast of the city
centre. Walk or use the shuttle bus to get to the nearby
station. Every half hour RE7 and RB14 trains run directly
to Alexanderplatz and Hauptbahnhof, taking 20-25 min-
utes; the S-Bahn trains take about 40 minutes with one
or two changes required. Take bus X7 to U-Bahn station
Rudow for Kreuzberg. For all these options you’ll need
an ABC zone ticket.
By train
All trains stop at Berlin’s gleaming, glass-sheathed
Hauptbahnhof main station which has all the essentials;
a supermarket, post office, toilets, showers, lockers and
a tourist information centre. Use the S-Bahn, U-Bahn
or buses to reach your final destination. International
trains often also stop at Ostbahnhof, which is handy for
Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain, and Spandau, where you
can change for Charlottenburg.
By bus
Buses drop you off at the Zentrale Omnibusbahnof (ZOB),
west of the city. The Messe Nord/ICC S-Bahn station is
nearby, but catching the M49 bus to S/U-Bahn station
Zoologischer Bahnhof will get you to the city centre faster.
Arriving in Berlin
The Prussians certainly missed a trick when they decided
it was a really smart idea to number houses up one side
of the street and back down the other. Number 1 may well
be opposite number 453. Thankfully, most Berlin street
name signs indicate which numbers can be found along
each block. The peculiar German letter ß, pronounced
as an ‘s’, is used in the word for street, Straße. Some
common German street-related words:
Allee avenue Platz square
Straße street Tor gate
Ufer riverbank
Street smarts
Berlin Infostore E-2, Hauptbahnhof station, Mitte,
MS/U Hauptbahnhof, tel. +49 30 25 00 25, www.
visitberlin.de. The helpful staff at the official Berlin
tourist offices can provide a wide range of information
and publications. QOpen 08:00 - 22:00. Also at F-2,
Brandenburger Tor south wing (open 09:30 - 18:00);
C-3, Kurfürstendamm 22 (passage, open 10:00-20:00,
Sun 9:30-18:00).
Tourist information
Discounts are a welcome relief, so if you are planning
to travel around town a lot and see more than one mu-
seum, get a reduced rate card. Note that students and
youths may get better reductions at museums using
their student ID cards.
Berlin WelcomeCard, www.berlin-welcomecard.de.
The Berlin WelcomeCard is a combined transport and
reduction card (museums, bike tours/rental, boat tours,
etc) valid for zone AB or zone ABC (which includes Potsdam
and Schönefeld airport). Cards are valid for 48 hours (AB
€18,50, ABC €20,50), 72 hours (€24,50/26,50) or 5 days
(€31,50/36,50). Cards are sold from BVG ticket machines,
tourist offices, S-Bahn offices, hotels and kiosks. The similar
CityTourCard (www.citytourcard.com) is a little cheaper, with
restaurant, bar and club discounts geared towards younger
travellers: 48 hours (AB €16,90, ABC €18,90), 72 hours
(€22,90/24,90) or 5 days (€29,90/34,90).

restaurants. For sale at most theatre ticket agencies.
Museum Pass Berlin, www.smb.museum. 60
museums, including the permanent collections of the
Staatliche Museen (state museums), can be visi ted

train. Arriving on the A10 highway use Buch station; A100 -
Innsbrucker Platz; A111 - Jungfernheide; A113 - Bundesplatz;
A114 - Pankow; A115 - Heidelberger Platz.
All cars entering the city centre within the S-Bahn ring must
have an Umwelt-Plakette (environmental badge sticker),
which can be ordered online before your trip (for around €30)
via the Climate Company, www.umwelt-plakette.de, tel. +49
30 398 87 21 40, or purchased (from €5,50) at Dekra and
TÜV garages around Berlin.
Trains
Deutsche Bahn (DB, German Railways) runs sleek 300km/
hr highspeed ICE (InterCity Express) trains, EC (EuroCity) and
IC (InterCity) trains. Train tickets are considerably cheaper
when purchased well in advance; book online at www.bahn.de

halls, top-quality artists and relatively cheap tickets - and
an annual cultural budget of over €900 million to fund it all.
Opera & Classical Music
Komische Oper F-3, Behrenstraße 55, Mitte, MU
Französische Straße, tel. +49 30 20 26 00, www.

The “Forever Young” rock variety show at Wintergarten
(playing until 11 May) reminds us all of our careless
youth, using classic hits, played live by a six-man band,
as background music to stunning acts. For example
“Satisfaction” on the trapeze, juggling and comedy to
the guitar riff of “Light My Fire” and music by the Beatles,
Rolling Stones, Nirvana, Pink Floyd and many others.
Fittingly, the Wintergarten itsel f has a musical past,
starting off as a cinema in 1913 but used as a rock
concert hall from 1970 to 1989. From 22 May, the new
“Culti Multi” show combines German-language stand-up
comedy with international variety acts.

1933, and 75 years since the Kristallnacht pogrom of
November 1938. The “Diversity Destroyed - Berlin 1933-
1938” exhibition at the German Historical Museum is the
starting point for an exploration of Berlin’s memorial sites
within the framework of a comprehensive programme of
exhibitions and events across the city throughout 2013.
Opened on 30 January – the day Hitler was appointed
Rei ch Chancell or – i t examines the fateful year of
1933 as well as the time before and after the forcible
establishment of the Nazi dictatorship. It shows how
the social diversity and cultural avant-garde that had
turned 1920s Berlin into a pulsating metropolis were
destroyed after 1933. There are English-language tours
every Friday at 14:00.

theater shows, the BLUE MAN GROUP
show at Potsdamer Platz offers a won-
derful solution for any tongue-tied for-
eigner in the city. The New York produc-

that communicates with its audience
by way of gestures, expressions and
music rather than words. In the show,
three bald-headed blue men whisk the
audience away on a funny, entertaining, thrilling and unique musical
journey. Now the show, which has been thrilling audiences in Berlin
since 2004, is introducing an ‘international edition’ in which English text
has been creatively integrated into the production, making it even easier
for visitors from abroad to follow along.

Since reunification, the old city centre district Mitte
(meaning ‘middle’) has rightly snatched back the title of
most-visited district from Charlottenburg. On and off the
boulevard Unter den Linden are baroque and classical
monuments to Prussian culture. The architecturally hum-
bler but more neighbourhood-like Scheunenviertel area
allows the casually chic to saunter from courtyard gallery
to sidewalk café. Only traces are left of the Jewish commu-
nity that lived here from the late 17th century, welcomed by
the Great Elector Friedrich Wilhelm.
Between Mitte and Charlottenburg, the huge Tiergarten
park began as the Great Elector’s hunting grounds in
the 1600s. Traffic passes through it, doing a dosey-doe
around the Siegessäule victory column. The Straße des
17. Juni leads east to the Brandenburger Tor; just south of
it are the state museums of the Kulturforum and the Pots-
damer Platz district with its soaring corporate buildings.
Getting there
Arrivals by plane and train usually end up at Hauptbahnhof
station, central for the city but not really close to anything.
S-Bahn trains from the top level link to the east and west
of the city, while the fancy new two-stop U55 U-Bahn line
takes sightseers straight to Brandenburger Tor.
Pocket Walk
Start off at Brandenburger Tor and the Reichstag before
heading south past the Holocaust memorial and Potsdamer
Platz to the Topographie des Terrors exhibition and the
adjacent stretch of Berlin Wall. Follow Zimmerstraße for
the Stasi Exhibition and Checkpoint Charlie. Walk north
along Friedrichstraße and turn right at Mohrenstraße for
Gendarmenmarkt square, before ambling to Unter den
Linden via Bebelplatz. Walk east past the Neue Wache and
Berliner Dom, turn left into Spandauer Straße, and pass
through Hackescher Markt station. Visit the Hackesche Höfe
complex before walking down Oranienburger Straße for the
Neue Synagoge. You can catch the S-Bahn from here back
to Brandenburger Tor.

Landmarks
Brandenburger Tor F-3, Pariser Platz, Mitte, MS/U
Brandenburger Tor. Berlin‘s landmark monument is one of 14 city
gates completed in 1792 by Carl Langhans. Nike, the goddess of
victory, drives the four-horsepower chariot atop the gate. German
armies used to begin their parades here, the fascists spoiled the
gate by staging their torch-lit parades through it, the war badly
damaged it, and then the Wall essentially bricked the patched-up
gate in for decades. Berliners celebrated the Wall‘s fall in 1989 by
standing on it in front of the gate, and after renovations the gate is
the proud focus point of the renewed square again.
Gendarmenmarkt F-3, Markgrafenstraße, Mitte, MU
Französische Straße. Twin cathedrals-turned-museums
(dating to the earl y 1700s), the Konzerthaus (from 1818,
by Carl Langhans) and a row of luxury hotels make up this
classic square. The name stems from the mid-1700s when
military regiments were stationed here.

MS Oranienburger Tor, tel. +49 30 88 02 83 00, www.
centrumjudaicum.de. The gilded cupola of the New Synagogue
is one of the most eye-catching sights in Mitte. Exhibits strikingly
balance the restoration of the Alhambra-inspired synagogue
from 1866, with preserved evidence of its destruction, first on
Kristallnacht on November 9, 1938, and then through Allied
bombs. Documents and photographs remember the thriving
Jewish communi ty of the neighbourhood, many of whom
worshipped here in what was the largest synagogue in Germany.
A subtle but effective sound installation adds to the experience.

Nikolaiviertel G-3, Nikolaikirchplatz, Mitte, MU
Klosterstraße, www.stadtmuseum.de. Berlin‘s tiny
medi eval hear t is the Nikolai Quar ter, whose onl y trul y
medieval-looking building today is the Nikolaikirche. The
church dates to 1230 and was rebuil t along with the entire
quarter in the 1980s to mark Berlin‘s 750th birthday in
the area in which the fishermen‘s settlement first began.
No one was trying to outdo Wal t Disney here, and many
of the buildings have the simple, concrete facades that
the GDR government could afford. The small shops in the
area mostl y deal in toys and souvenirs and tourists gladl y
fill the sunny tables at the restaurants that face the 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 Platz. Once a
busy intersection at the modern heart of a thriving metropolis,
Potsdamer Platz was heavily damaged in the war, and suffered
again when most remaining buildings were demolished to make
way for the Wall‘s death strip. Hotel and office skyscrapers now add
a cosmopolitan edge to the city, while to the east Leipziger Platz is
almost rebuilt. The most popular public space and architectural
attraction is the Sony Center, with its huge atrium and tent-
like roof, best viewed at night for its impressive lighting. The
neighbouring DaimlerChrysler complex holds architecture by
Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, and the Arkaden shopping mall.
Reichstag F-3, Platz der Republik 1, Tiergarten, MU
Bundestag, www.bundestag.de/htdocs_e/visits. The
name together with its monumental size make most people
associate Germany‘s neoclassical parliamentary building
with the Nazis, but they have little history here. After hosting
parliamentary sessions since 1894, it was set on fire just one
month after Hitler was appointed chancellor in January 1933.
It was a conference centre in the years during which it abutted
the Wall, while later artist Christo famously wrapped it in cloth.
It was used as parliament again after 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. 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. It’s best to book an
entry time to the dome or for the 90-minute guided tour of the
building in advance online; otherwise queue up for remaining
places at the visitor centre just across the road. Photo ID is
required.QOpen 08:00 - 23:00. Prebooked rooftop access
every 15 minutes. Guided tours at 09:00, 10:30, 12:00,
13:30, 15:30, 17:00, 18:30, 20:00. Admission free.

Churches
Berliner Dom G-3, Am Lustgar ten, Mitte, MS
Hackescher Markt, tel. +49 30 20 26 91 36, www.
berlinerdom.de. The fourth incarnation of this Protestant
church dating from 1905 might not look as massive if the
Stadtschloss were still standing across Unter den Linden
(the GDR regime demolished the castle in 1951). The royal
Hohenzollern dynasty worshipped and was buried here. The
climb up to the dome‘s rim is forgiving, with broad staircases,
side exhibit rooms and good views. QOpen 09:00 - 20:00,
Sun 12:00 - 20:00. Oct-March open until 19:00. Admission
€7/4.
Deutscher Dom F-3, Gendarmenmarkt 1, Mitte, MU
Stadtmitte, tel. +49 30 22 73 04 31, www.bundestag.
de/kulturundgeschichte/ausstellungen/wege. The
baroque ‚German Church‘ from 1701 was completed with an
impressive domed tower in 1785; badl y damaged by fire in
the war it was onl y renovated in the 1980s. Owned by the
state, the bare interior now houses an exhibition about the
development of parliamentarian democracy in Germany - and
how it came to fail so tragicall y in the last century. Be sure to
see the views from the windows and the impressive building
models on the top floor. Free tours in English are possible
throughout the day; no booking is required for indi vidual
visitors. QOpen 10:00 - 19:00. Closed Mon. Admission free.
Französischer Dom F-3, Gendarmenmarkt 5, Mitte,
MU Stadtmitte, tel. +49 30 20 64 99 22, www.
franzoesischer-dom.de. The northernmost domed tower
in the Gendermenmarkt‘s grand architectural triptych dates
back to 1785, and similarl y to i ts counterpart was badl y
damaged in the war. It now has regular concerts in the simple
baroque Friedrichstadtkirche church to the rear. Enter from the
other side for the Huguenot museum (in German and French
onl y), dedicated to the thousands of French protestants who
moved to Berlin in the 17th century. Yet another entrance
leads to the viewing balcony at 40 metres above street level,
with great views all around. Q Open 12:00-17:00, viewing

Memorials
Führerbunker F-3, In den Ministergärten, Mitte, MS/U
Potsdamer Platz. No educational historic plaques mark the
site where Hitler committed suicide on April 30, 1945. For the
last month of his life, Hitler lived roughl y eight meters below
ground in an air-raid shel ter topped by a four-metre-thick,
reinforced concrete ceiling. The unremarkable spot can be
reached by walking to the end of In den Ministergärten, off
Ebertstraße. A parking area surrounded by a pre-fabricated
apartment complex covers the location, which was entirel y
sealed off during the complex‘s construction in 1988-89. The
bunker was once accessed through the Festsaal (ballroom)
behind the Reichskanzler-Palais on Wilhelmstraße.
Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe F-3,
Cora-Berliner-Straße 1, Mitte, MS/U Brandenburger Tor,
tel. +49 30 26 39 43 36, www.stiftung-denkmal.de. This
bluntly named memorial avoids any vagueness surrounding the
term Holocaust. Six million Jews are estimated to have been
killed by the Nazis and this site serves as Germany‘s national
memorial to those victims. The design by American architect
Peter Eisenmann is a field of 2,700 concrete stelae, or pillars,
of varying height, creating an undulating landscape that fills two
city blocks. The memorial has an undergound information centre
which is not suitable for children. Q Information centre open
10:00-20:00, Oct-Mar 10:00-19:00. Closed Mon. Admission free.
Neue Wache F-3, Unter den Linden 4, Mitte, MS/U
Friedrichstraße. Germany‘s nati onal war memorial is
housed in the former royal guard house of the Prussians.
The neoclassic building from 1819 was the first commission
the famed Karl Friedrich Schinkel received in Berlin. The sole
image inside is that of a woman cradling her son, though
the son is an adul t and has presumabl y lost his life on the
battlefield. The sculpture is an enlargement of a pieta by
Berlin artist Käthe Koll witz. The inscription in front of the
sculpture reads To the victims of war and tyranny. Above
i t is an open skylight that was added in 1931, when the
building first became a war memorial. QOpen 10:00 - 18:00.

memorial site for the divided Germany has a documentation
centre covering the Berlin Wall‘s history in text, slides and
dramatic film footage. An unscathed section of Wall runs

+49 30 251 20 75, www.mauermuseum.de. A homespun
Great Escape museum of false trunks, tools, videos, even
a submarine, and stills of tunnel-digging attest to necessity

for dramatic stories of separated lovers, freedom-seeking
families, and fed-up senior citizens in the GDR who breached
the Wall. The museum also has art interpreting the concrete
division of the city, an exhibit on human rights movements.
QOpen 09:00 - 22:00. Admission €12,50/9,50.
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 di fferences that cannot be erased in a
matter of a few years. Key sights relating to this era
are the Gedenkstätte Berliner Mauer in Prenzlauer
Berg, Checkpoint Charlie in Mitte with the Haus am
Checkpoint Charlie Wall museum, BlackBox Cold
War, Wall Panorama and Stasi exhibition, and the
Tränenpalast, the former border crossi ng besi de
Friedrichstraße station. Get insights into daily GDR life at
the DDR Museum in Mitte and the Museumswohnung
WBS 70 out in the suburbs.
Cold War Berlin
Wilhelmstraße, the centre of government in Prussia,
continued to be so under Nazi rule. Between Unter den
Linden and today’s Niederkirchnerstraße, the only non-
Reich structure in 1936 was the British Embassy, which
still holds its ground today in a modern building. The
sole remaining example of fascist architecture is the
former Reichsluftfahrtministerium (Air Force Ministry)
built in 1935 by Ernst Sagebiehl. The grey building that
once struck fear into the heart of Londoners is now the
Finance Ministry. Hitler’s New Reichs Chancellory
stood on Voßstraße but was demolished after the war.
Not to let the red marble of its obnoxiously long hallway
go to waste, the Russians lined the nearby Mohrenstraße
U-Bahn station with it. The center of Nazi terror was on
Prinz-Albrecht-Straße, today’s Niederkirchnerstraße. The
Topography of Terror exhibit explains the functions of
the various offices – including the SS and Gestapo - that
once occupied the site.
Third Reich Berlin
With over 450 exhibits from private

de/berlin. The Border Experiences exhibi tion highlights
the everyday reali ty of the border running through Berlin.
The glass pavilion beside Friedrichstraße station was the
main border crossing between West and East Berlin between
the 1960s and 1990. Trains from West Berlin arrived here,
separate from the East German platform, and arrivals were
checked, searched, regularl y humiliated, and required to
exchange 25 marks. Those visiting famil y and friends in the
East may never see them again, hence the name ‚Palace
of Tears‘. Sui tcases of memories tell the stories of GDR
emigrants, escapees and returnees; maps show the planning
of the implementation of the Wall, photos recall the political
tensions that saw US and Soviet tanks face each other in
October 1961, and there are videos of a lady working in the
Intershop duty free kiosk and a glum border guard, indignant
that the Wall (and his job) didn‘t last 100 years as promised.

district to a Wall-divided wasteland and back again within
a generation. The café and rooftop terrace offer great

I f ‘downtown’ to you means wi de, traf fi c-fill ed streets,
crowds of shoppers, fi ve-star hotels and tall buil dings,
then Charl ottenburg comes cl osest to fi tting the bill in
Berlin. Left as a ruin after the war, the ruined Kaiser-
Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche church is the nexus of acti v-
i ty. Between i t and Zool ogischer Garten station, over a
billion euros is being invested in impressi ve hi ghrises,
hotels and of fi ces. Foll ow what becomes an increas-
ingl y silken ri bbon down Kur fürstendamm (Ku’damm)
and the setting becomes more genteel. West Berlin’s
young scene meets in the bars and cafés branching
of f Savi gnyplatz, even i f the Szene has moved east.
Nearby but isolated from the hoi poll oi is Schl oss
Charl ottenburg, the resi dence of King Fri edri ch I. This
chapter also covers other parts of western Berlin:
l eafy Wilmersdorf and Schöneberg, the centre of
gay Berlin since the days of Christopher Isherwood’s
Berlin Stories.
Getting there
Charlottenburg’s nerve centre is Zoologischer Bahnhof
station, along the main west-east raised city railway. From
here’s it’s a short walk to many hotels and sights, or else
hop on the M29 bus, going east along Tauentzienstraße
and west down Kurfürstendamm.
Pocket Walk
Explore Charlottenburg from Zoologischer Garten station.
Walk east to Brei tschei dplatz for the ruins and modern
reincarnation of the Kaiser Wilhel m Memorial Church.
Strol l fur ther east down Tauent zi enstraße for the
KaDeWe department store and other upmarket shops,
or head west al ong Kantstraße to l eafy Savi gnypl atz
for calm cafés and refined dining, or southwest down
grand ol d Kur fürstendamm for more shoppi ng. When

Fi ndi ng accommodati on i s not such a probl em i n
Berlin; the city has hundreds of hotels and thousands
of beds. And in a city this large, every place can call
itsel f ‘central’. The hotel categories in this guide are
based on the highest double room rack rate price,
but actual prices often depend on the the season and
booking method. Prices include VAT and breakfast
unless mentioned otherwise. Apartment rentals are
booking; renting one ofr a day or a month is usually
much cheaper than checking into a hotel.

Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, a stark reminder of wartime
destruction, is West Berlin‘s landmark attraction. Kept as
an open wound, the severe acknowledgement of Germany‘s
culpabili ty is declared on a plaque: ‚The tower of the old
church serves as a remembrance of God‘s judgment, which
befell our people during the war years.‘ The 1895 church was
once a symbol of national pride: even synagogues contributed
to its funding. Inside is a gilded mosaic of the Hohenzollern
dynasty. The modern chapel and bell tower beside it were
completed in 1961, and are worth entering on sunny days for
the amazing blue stained glass windows. The main church
ruin will be in scaffolding until autumn 2013. Concerts take

on Berlin‘s prime catwalk. Kastanienallee, also known as
casting alley, is a perfect place to watch Berlin street

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

to fill up at the all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet. QOpen 10:00

DAILY 11.00 –24.00
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. After 1989 the cool bri-
gade pounced on the area, and houses that were once home
to East German punks were renovated in odes to pastel. The
number of wine shops and young parents pushing pricey
prams indicates the level of gentrification here. The best
places to soak up the atmosphere are Kollwitzplatz, Helm-
holzplatz and along Kastanienallee. One of Prenzlauer Berg’s
best attractions is the Kulturbrauerei culture centre, set in
a 19th-century brewery complex. This chapter also covers
some places in multicultural Wedding, just to the west.
Getting there
The U2 from Alexanderplatz feeds crowds Senefelderplatz
and Eberswalder Straße, close to most attractions of
the district. From Museumsinsel and Friedrichstraße you
can use tram M1 to Eberswalder Straße as well. U-Bahn
station Bernauer Straße and S-Bahn station Nordbahnhof
are most convenient for a stroll along the Wall Memorial
to Mauerpark.
Pocket Walk
Start walking uphill along Kollwitzstraße from Senefelder
Platz U-Bahn station. From leafy Kollwitzplatz turn into
beautiful Husemannstraße, which was already restored
in GDR times, and left into Sredzkistraße where you’ll
spot the Kulturbrauerei complex ahead; enter beside the
tall chimney and wander through its courtyards to the
northern exit. Cross Danziger Straße and amble down
Lychenerstraße to pretty, café-lined Helmholtzplatz. Follow
Raumerstraße west, turn left down Pappelallee and cross
underneath the U-Bahn station to Eberswalder Straße;
you’ll soon reach the popular Mauerpark and the top end
of Bernauer Straße with its excellent Wall memorial.

Italian
Pizzeria i Due Forni G-2, Schönhauser Allee 12, Prenzlauer
Berg, MU Senefelder Platz, tel. +49 30 44 01 73 33. Atypical
for Berlin, this Italian restaurant is not very chic, the service is
rather cheeky, and the whole place has the feel of an overcrowded
student canteen. But the cheap pizza is highly praised, and the
lively, convivial atmosphere of i Due Forni is the perfect primer for
a night out on the town. QOpen 12:00 - 24:00. UB

Anna Blume H-2, Kollwitzstraße 83, Prenzlauer Berg,

cafe-anna-blume.de. Named after a l yrical poem and with
a sexy Mucha flower girl on the wall, this is an excellent,
relaxed café. Serving up coffee, cakes, crepes, meals and
the usual Berlin breakfasts, it‘s one of the better spots for
people-watching or just reading. Intriguingl y, i t also sells
flowers (blume) from the connected shop next door - and
the smell of coffee and fresh flowers combines very well.

affordable double rooms. QOpen 08:00 - 02:00.
Bars

Berg, MU Eberswalder Straße, www.augustfengler.de.
A neighbourhood bar if there ever was one, there aren‘t just
football tables downstairs, but a Kegelbahn (bowling alley)
too. The team behind the big wooden bar is friendl y, and the
seating area is an undulating mass of coats and groups of
friends yakking up a storm. DJs play classics, soul, disco, and
funk in the small back dance room. QOpen 19:00 - 05:00.
Santiago H-2, Wörtherstraße 36, Prenzlauer Berg,
MU Eberswalderstraße, tel. +49 30 441 25 55. This
cocktail lounge overlooking Koll witzplatz has a somewhat
dodgy interior - leather sofas and gli tzy girl statues that
wouldn‘t look out of place in a nightclub - but manages to get
the punters in with a range of attractivel y priced offers like
cocktails during the happy (before 20:00) and blue hours (from
01:00). There‘s an eat-all-you-can dinner on Wednesday and

GDR-era tables are constantl y being shuffled to make room
for the rumpled but attractive crowds. There‘s coffee and
pastries in the morning. QOpen 09:00 - 04:00.

Berg, MU Schillingstraße, tel. +49 30 42 02 14 05,
www.geburtstagsklub.de. Twenty year-olds fill the two
low-ceilinged rooms of this otherwise spacious cellar. Don‘t

brick wall of this 19th-century brewery and you‘ll eventuall y

Old Town setting. A cobblestone pedestrian way courses
through the center of the complex, whose 25,000 square
meters is filled wi th bars, restaurants, clubs, galleries and
a cinema. The onl y thing you won‘t find is freshl y brewed
beer; Schul theiss shut down production here in 1967. Soda
Club is a both a restaurant and popular nightclub, and
Kesselhaus and Alte Kantine host anything from readings
to theater to li ve bands. A hub of nightli fe for the hipsters
of Prenzlauer Berg.

Shopping
You could ruin a good set of heels window-shopping
in Berlin. Stroll Charlottenburg’s Kurfürstendamm,
particularly between Uhlandstraße and Adenauerplatz,
for top brands. Wi t h t he excepti on of Berl i n’s
proudest department store, Kaufhaus des Westens,
Tauentzienstraße is lined with mass market retail stores.
Mitte’s credit card trail is Friedrichstraße, 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
are the main emporiums. The maze of streets around
Weinmeisterstraße is where to find what’s driving the
under-thirty crowd into debt. Kreuzberg has two main
shopping streets; between the bars and eateries on
Oranienstraße are bookstores, wool specialists, ethnic
grocers and internet cafés; Bergmannstraße 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 and Friedrichshain
are where to watch the trends; you’re likely to find an
interesting window display wherever you walk.

Museum) Hellersdorfer Straße 179, Hellersdorf, MU
Cottbusser Platz, tel. +49 151 16 11 44 40. Travel back to
1986 and visit a GDR worker‘s dream property; this mundane
but much-coveted prefab Plattenbau museum home is the
last of 42,000 such apartments with all its original fittings
(drab wallpapered ceilings), appliances (yoghurt machine,
Albanian chairs) and decorations (lurid floral patterns). The
rent was 109 Marks, about 10% of the average wage, but
the colour TV cost 4,500 Marks. From the station exit left
and follow the street around the block. No English spoken or
captions; bring a local. Q Open Sun 14:00-16:00, other days
by appointment. Admission free.
Stasi Museum (Forschungs- und Gedenkstätte
Normannenstraße) Ruschestraße 103, Haus 1,
Friedrichshain, MU Magdalenenstraße, tel. +49 30
553 68 54, www.stasimuseum.de. East Germany‘s State
Security Service or Stasi was responsible for intelligence
gathering both at home and abroad. I t spied on i ts 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 feared
Stasi minister for 32 years, in its original dull state. There‘s a
video of Mielke testifying before a panel in 1989, symbols of
Communist kitsch, and many documents in German. Groups of
10 or more can get an English-language tour at no extra cost,
when requested in advance. See also the Stasi Exhibition
in Mi tte. QOpen 11:00 - 18:00, Sat, Sun 14:00 - 18:00.
Admission €5/4.
Parks and Gardens
Volkspark Friedrichshain H-2/3, Friedenstraße,
Friedrichshain, MU Strausberger Platz. Berlin‘s oldest
public park was opened in 1846 for the residents of the
densel y populated Fri edri chshain and Prenzlauer Berg
neighbourhoods; i t was soon enlarged, inspired by New
York‘s Central Park. Two wartime Flak towers were dynamited
and covered by a million cubic metres of rubble to form the
landscaped Bunkerberg hills - foliage unfortunately obscures
the views. Visit it today for the open-air theatre and cinema,
the Märchenbrunnen fountain with its fairy tale and animal
figures, meadows, sports facili ties and the Schönbrunn
Biergarten.

Macondo I-4, Gärtnerstraße 14, Friedrichshain, tel. +49
30 54 73 59 43, www.macondo-berlin.de. Macondo was
the setting of García Márquez‘ novel 100 Years of Solitude,
and you could say that i ts languid tropi cal atmosphere
perseveres in this wonderful ‚reading café‘. There‘s old
furniture to sink in to, views over the Sunday market, good
coffee and original South American mate tea, sipped through

Habermeyer J-4, Gärtnerstraße 6, Friedrichshain, MS

bar.de. Like many Berlin bars, Habermeyer recycles the
1970s with its light fixtures and furnishings but it also created
its own unusual wall designs. A popular table football and
flipper machine provide distraction from the loud and very
varied DJ music, though there‘s no space to dance, but there‘s
free sal ty snacks to console you. Q Open from 19:00 - open
end. UNB

goes on the main dance floor, in the Panorama Bar and in the
dark rooms of this huge old power plant. The doorman picks
from the queue of hopefuls to create the right mix, so parties
are al ways varied and exciting. Arrive earl y Sunday morning
for the best atmosphere. There are concerts and events
on weekdays too, and in summer an outdoor Diskogarten.
Q Open Fri 24:00 - Sat 12:00, Sat 24:00 - Mon 09:00.

Friedrichshain is a lively old
workers district that has
completely been taken over
by rad nightlife venues,
graffiti and leftist students
moaning about Touri’s en-
croaching on their favourite
watering holes. Tree-lined
Simon-Dach-Straße is full
of cafés and bars, while
Boxhagener Platz hosts a
popular flea market. In the former border zone along the
river, the ‘Mediaspree’ development plan for offices, apart-
mens and skyscrapers is passionately opposed by many
vocal locals who fear they’ll lose the river. This chapter
also includes sights east of Friedrichshain.
Getting there
From Mitte, hop on a train to S/U-Bahn station Warschau-
er Straße or U-Bahn station Frankfurter Tor. From Nord-
bahnhof or Prenzlauer Berg catch the M10 tram.
Pocket Walk
Get off the S- or U-Bahn at Warschauer Straße; enjoy the
wide city panorama from the bridge and glance back at the
dainty red-brick Oberbaumbrücke bridge before heading
north into the district. Turn right on Revaler Straße and left
on Simon-Dach-Straße for Friedrichshain’s most touristy
stretch of bars and cafés. A right on Krossener Straße
takes you to Boxhagener Platz, scene of the excellent
Sunday flea market. Walk north along Gärtnerstraße and
Mainzer Straße to reach the grand Stalinist-style Frank-
furter Allee. Follow this west (it becomes Karl-Marx-Allee)
and turn right onto Friendenstraße for a stroll and a beer in
Volkspark Friedrichshain.

popular, and very, very white. The delicious Alpine and ‚new German

Asian
Kimchi Princess H-4, Skalitzer Straße 36, Kreuzberg,
MU Görlitzer Bahnhof, tel. +49 163 458 02 03, www.
kimchiprincess.com. Though this is not Berlin’s first Korean
restaurant, Kimchi Princess is being hailed by the capital’s
gourmets as the first one to serve authentic dishes - that is, not
drowned in cream and sauce like most Asian food here. It’s indeed
excellent and spicy, and as a result it can be difficult to find a free
table in the evening. QOpen 18:00 - 01:00. €€. TUGBSW
Pagode F-5, Bergmannstraße 88, Kreuzberg, MU
Mehringdamm, tel. +49 30 691 26 40, www.pagode-
thaifood.de. Simply one of the best Thai restaurants in town,
and awarded by the Thai embassy in Berlin as one of the best
in Germany. It feels crowded, steamy and noisy, but that’s just
part of the authentic self-service atmosphere; wait till you
sink your teeth in the fantastic food. All the Thai classics are
present, as are some other Asian dishes. If you like it hot, just
ask and they’ll make it hot. QOpen 12:00 - 24:00. €. VBS
Sar od’ s Fr i esenstr aße 22, Kr euzber g, MU
Gneisenaustraße, tel. +49 30 69 50 73 33, www.sarods.
de. Kreuzberg’s friendliest Thai restaurant. The food is excellent,
healthy, fresh and gluten-free, with some unusual options on the
extensive menu such as the Lab (minced meat with roast rice,
coriander and spices). There’s a good selection of wines too.
QOpen 12:00 - 24:00, Sun 14:00 - 24:00. €€. TGBSW
Austrian
Jolesch H-4, Muskauer Straße 1, Kreuzberg, MU Görlitzer
Bahnhof, tel. +49 30 612 35 81, www.jolesch.de. Excellent
Austrian cuisine and wines in a quirky corner of Kreuzberg.
Jolesh, a classy yet good-value restaurant, is named after
‘Tante Jolesch’, a Viennese auntie who loved to cook. It serves
a great Wiener Schnitzel as well as dishes like goulash and
Kaiserschmarrn, chopped-up pancakes with sugar and fruit
jam. Breakfast is served until 17:00, so take your time for brunch.
QOpen 11:00 - 24:00, Sat, Sun 09:30 - 24:00. €€. GB
Riehmers F-5, Hagelbergerstraße 9, Kreuzberg, MU
Mehringdamm, tel. +49 30 78 89 19 80, www.riehmers-
restaurant.de. The elegant and understated Riehmers
restaurant serves a fantastic Wiener Schnitzel (breaded
veal escalope), amongst seasonal dishes like roast pike perch
and crepes with roast apricots. The dining room is kept bare
and simple, while the calm summer terrace in the garden
overlooks a historic apartment complex for Prussian officers.

Fast food
Curry 36 F-5, Mehringdamm 36, Kreuzberg, MU
Mehringdamm, tel. +49 30 251 73 68, www.curry36.de. If
you want to eat Currywurst the proper Berlin way, you’ll order yours
here boiled and naked. It looks a little pale in comparison to the
ones with their pink skins on, but you might earn an iota of respect
from the hard-boiled Fraus who work the stand. Other proletarian
Berlin specialities you can take to the stand-up outdoor tables
are the fried burgers, Boulette. QOpen 09:00 - 05:00. €. S
Glück To Go F-5, Friesenstraße 26, Kreuzberg, MU
Gneisenaustraße, tel. +49 30 623 10 04, www.glueck-to-
go.de. This unusual fast-food restaurant was inspired by a trip
to India’s Gujarat province and serves happiness to go: delicious
protein-rich vegetarian/vegan burgers, fries with ayurvedic spices,
and healthy juice concoctions; all home-made with organic and
regionally sourced ingredients. You won’t miss the meat patty at
all in the delicious Orient Express burger, with beetroot, spices and
special date chutney; and there’s three other burgers to choose
from. Finish off with a sweet, low-fat Shrikhand joghurt. Set menus
from €6-8,50. QOpen 10:00 - 20:00, Sat, Sun 12:00 - 20:00. €. B
Thanks to a large Turkish community and more hippies, anar-
chists and alternative folks than you can shake a didgeridoo at,
Kreuzberg feels neither east nor west. It was the black sheep of
West Berlin, literally parked in a dead-end corner by the Wall and
left alone to play loud music and draw on the walls. By now, the
protesting students of 1968 have grown grey alongside Turkish
immigrants. Every year since 1987, Kreuzberg relives its 15
minutes of fame during the May Day traditional political demon-
strations, which invariably turn into a long night of stone-throwing
and burning cars. Otherwise, Kreuzberg is all about backgam-
mon at the men’s clubs, café-sitting on the Landwehrkanal, and
ambling down the popular Oranienstraße and Bergmannstraße
drags. This chapter also covers areas southwest of Kreuzberg:
Treptow west along the river Spree, the Tempelhof airport-
turned-park which attracts thousands of visitors in summer,
and the upcoming Neukölln district. Here, the Kreuzkölln area
around Reuterstraße is increasingly attracting hipsters, artists,
artsy boutiques and weird nightlife spots.
Getting there
The Bergmannstraße area is best reached from Fried-
richstraße on the U6; get off at Mehringdamm, or at Platz
der Luftbrücke for the Viktoriapark. For the gritty end of
Kreuzberg hop on the U8 from Alexanderplatz and pop up
at Kottbusser Tor; the Kreuzkölln bars are within pub-
crawling distance of Schönleinstraße and Hermannplatz
stations, on the same line.
Pocket Walk
Kreuzberg is best explored in two parts. From Platz der Luftbrücke
station walk west to Viktoriapark and climb the Kreuzberg for
views north over the city. Descend eastwards and walk along
genteel Bergmannstraße, perhaps visiting a café or the market
hall, before walking south to Columbiadamm for access to the
the former Tempelhof airport, now a wonderful park.

Symbol key
Start a tour of the fascinating eastern end of Kreuzberg
at Kottbusser Tor U-Bahn station; wander north through
‘little Istanbul’ to Oranienplatz and follow the park to the
Engelbecken pond where you can follow the former Wall
al ong Bethani endamm to Mariannenplatz, a centre of
Berlin subculture. Stroll down Waldemarstraße to café-lined
Lausitzerplatz and cross under the U-Bahn line to lively
Görlitzer Park. From here, go north into Falckensteinstraße to
discover more of Kreuzberg’s street art, or head south along
Ohlauer Straße and across Landwehrkanal into the trendy
‘Kreuzkölln’ district for cupcakes and cocktails.

Café am Engelbecken H-4, Michaelkirchplatz, Mitte,

partiall y-restored St. Michael’s church is a pond, sunk into
a depressed parkway that was once a canal. Hidden away
at the reedy edge of the pond is a sunny terrace café. View
of the water and the rustling tall green reeds makes this a
peaceful respite from all things city while still being near the
heart of Kreuzberg (and can you believe this area was once
filled with rubble, and part of the Wall’s death strip?). Pizza
and snacks are served and they offer a choice of cocktails.

Berlin’s shabbiest and most mul ticul tural neighbourhood.
Many entertainment halls were buil t in this part of town,
attracting thousands of Berliners at weekends. Rix is one
of the last remaining entertainment halls in the area, dating
from 1880 and all gold twirls, high ceilings and big mirrors.
It’s just perfect for sipping coffee and munching on cake, or
for a well-prepared meal. Combine it with a concert at the
adjacent Heimathafen or a visit to Rixdorf’s old village square
and the lush Körnerpark. QOpen 09:00 - 24:00, Fri, Sat

for spying on Universal Music headquarters across the water,
even if the crowd here would never dance to their pop artists.
Also in view (and right next door) is the turreted Oberbaumbrücke,
which makes an odd backdrop to techno, house, or any guest DJ

Tempelhof Airport Terminal (Zentralflughafen) Platz
der Luftbrücke, MU Platz der Luftbrücke, tel. +49 30 200
03 74 41, www.tempelhoferfreiheit.de. The Tempelhof
Airport terminal, now used for events, was constructed in
the 1930s, but the interior of the massive 1300-metre-long
complex was never finished. The history is impressive: the
Prussian army paraded here, in 1909 Orville Wright broke
records by flying higher and longer than ever before, and in
1948 the first round of the Cold War was won when the Allied
airlift beat the Soviet blockade. Two-hour English-language
tours take you from the apron and the main hall, down into the
air raid bunkers and onto the roof. Q Guided tours in English
on Sat at 15:00, Sun at 10:30. Tickets €12/9, children €6.

Jüdisches Museum Berlin (Jewish Museum) F-4,
Lindenstraße 9-14, Kreuzberg, MU Hallesches Tor, tel.
+49 30 25 99 33 00, www.jmberlin.de. The famous
zinc-plated fortress designed by Daniel Libeskind contains a
moving perspective on the many ways in which German life
and Jewish history are intricatel y interwoven. The interior

stucco work run riot - this is the work of Great Uncle Gropius,

a souvenir-ravaged stretch of Wall, the cellars are all that
remain of the palace housing the Reich Security (SS) Office.
The fascinating exhibi tion in the trench and the adjacent
pavilion and park uses models, texts and photos to highlight
the topography of the Third Reich police, military and security
groups that were headquartered in this area, and discusses
their organisation and the terror they cast across Europe. The
most important lesson to take home is perhaps that these
organisation only managed to thrive thanks to the continuous
cooperation of many institutes and citizens. Set aside 2-3
hours to do it justice. QOpen 10:00 - 20:00. Admission free.

balmy afternoon, there’s no better place to be in Kreuzberg.
Tempelhofer Freiheit, MS/U Tempelhof, www.
tempelhoferfreiheit.de. Where else can you run for fi ve
minutes with your eyes closed? Berlin’s most amazing space
is this historic and wide open airport just south of Kreuzberg,
which closed in 2008 and was opened as a park in 2010. Now
the runways and taxi lanes are used by bikers, inline skaters
and kiteboarders; the fields around them are used by rare
breeding skylarks (from April-Jul y), picnickers, barbecuers,
artists, kite-flyers, gardeners and dog-walkers. There’s even a

Karl Friedrich Schinkel’s memorial to the Napoleonic Wars,
go to the corner of Kreuzbergstraße and Großbeerenstraße
for an eyeful of the park’s waterfall, constructed in the late
19th century. Kids stripped to their knickers wade in between
the shallow, tiered levels. 65 metres above, people lean back
against the graffiti-laden monument to take in the panoramic
view. Towards the back of the park, past a playground and off
the Bacci field, is the Golgotha beer garden. Running parallel
to Kreuzbergstraße is a small petting zoo where children and
goats get to meet and bleat.

May 1st, Labour Day, has
been a day of l eft-wi ng
protests in the eastern
par t of Kreuzber g for
decades. On this day in
1987 authori ti es used
extreme force agai nst
pr ot est er s f r om t h e
squat t er movement ,
resul ting in riots, street
bar r i c ad es an d t h e
plundering and torching
of shops. Ever since, the
annual demonstrations often end up in running street
battles with the well-prepared riot police, and the burning
of parked cars deemed too bourgeois. Nowadays the
annual baiting game with the police is almost a traditional
event, with dozens of ‘riot tourists’ from around the globe
participating.
Thankfully, for peaceful-minded visitors there’s also
a very good reason to visit Kreuzberg that day; the
Myfest festival (www.myfest36.de) on Oranienstrasse,
Heinrichplatz, Mariannenplatz and in adjacent streets.
The police manages to keep the protests away from
the festival, ensuring a friendl y famil y atmosphere.
There’s music on a dozen stages, food, thousands of
happy visitors. At night, there are big open air parties
on Oranienstrasse and Spreewaldplatz. This street
festival is safely reached walking from the Moritzplatz
U-Bahn station.

RIVER TOURS RIVER TOURS
After flowing a bucolic 400km from the Czech border re-
gion to Berlin, the river Spree goes out with a bang before
disappearing into the Havel near Spandau. Cutting a curvy
passage through Berlin, it provides tremendous views of the
Dom cathedral, the Reichstag and the government district
and the Berlin Wall near Ostbahnhof. Some of the Spree is
diverted along park-lined canals, and Berlin has more bridges
than Venice or Amsterdam.
Short city centre cruise tours depart regularly from the boat
landings near the Museumsinsel, Friedrichstraße, Haupt-
bahnhof station and the Haus der Kulturen in the park. The
3.5-hour Brücke (bridges) tours leave from Märkisches Ufer
near Märkisches Museum, Jannowitzbrücke and Kottbusser
Brücke, cruising past all the city centre sights and down Land-
wehrkanal and past the beautiful Oberbaumbrücke. Here we
list the tours with English narration. Sail away.
