- Off to Berlin tomorrow – what to see?
Seriously? The rheistag is pretty cool and next to it the brandenburg gate, checkpoint charlie, Hofbrau Beer Keller, An evening beer (or 6) and currywurst in the sun in the beer garden next to the spanish embassy just off Lichtensteinallee.
All the buses seemed to be chair friendly, the S-bhan and the standard-issue merc e-class taxis might be.Posted 4 years agowillardMember
The television tower and the wall museum are both good to go to (the latter next door to checkpoint, and indeed, _Snackpoint_ Charlie.
I can second the Reichstag, but only because there is a lovely restaurant above it. Treat yourself, go there and have the taster menu one night, then enjoy the views of the city from the top of the building.Posted 4 years agomangatankMember
Sign up for a month’s free Netflix and watch ‘Funeral in Berlin’ (1966), the sequel to the brilliant ‘The Ipcress File’.
I was completely floored by the scenes of post-war Berlin slowly crawling its way back to some form of normality. If you’re going to Berlin, I can’t think of anything better to give you a feel for what that city had to cope with until very recently.
Oh, and it’s Michael Caine as the kitchen sink anti-Bond, Harry Palmer. Great stuff!
In the film, watch out for the use of Helvetica signage in Berlin Airport. Not only hasn’t it dated a jot, it actually looks cutting-edge contemporary 😆Posted 4 years agoLardLoverMember
I’m off to Berlin tomorrow with my mate who is entered in the hand cyclist section  of the marathon [edit!!!]
We have 2 full days free for a bit of sightseeing.
What’s not to miss?!
Wheelchair access is a must.
Anyone know if the KitKat Club has wheelchair access?! 😉Posted 4 years ago
(Nothing to do with the chocolate wafer biscuit treat).
