alit Posted December 11, 2012 Share Posted December 11, 2012 I was in Berlin in September going to the Berlin Festival to see The Killers, and it surprised me how easy it was getting around THE WHOLE city by public transport! Therefore, don't be afraid of it might being a bit tricky getting around only by train. I highly recommend you to buy a 2-day-ticket or whatever they're called on one of the stations, so you can use the U-bahn and S-bahn system ... it's working spot on! Don't use taxi ... it's a city with a lot of traffic and it'll just rip you off considered to the train-system. I don't know anything about hotels or companies. A friend of mine has an apartment in Charlottenburg, 10 min. from the venue But still, the venue is in West-Berlin, just don't be afraid of booking a room in the area a bit out of Berlin ... the trains cover them all! See this: http://www.bvg.de/index.php/en/17103/name/Underground.html for more information about them, and if you see in the right it says More Information and Downloads, then save the "Network of S- and U-bahn" ... great and useful map! Thanks for the info not decided on area we will stay in yet, but the train routes and transport look great. Will def be booking an apartment I think as I'm vegan and friends vegetarian and just diagnosed coeliac so will need to be careful with eating out. So looking forward to this holiday/concert:) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
