    Loved it!

    We loved Berlin, it's pretty cheap for such a big city and it has a lot to offer everyone. There were heaps of great food places around and using the trains and metro wasn't too hard.

    Insider Tip:Buying the 4 trip tickets for the metro can save you some euros, buying a all day pass can add up quickly. A lot of the ticket machines won't take notes bigger than 5 euros too.

    See the stuff the staff at Riverside Lodge point out, enjoy the different restaurants suggested, and try not go to the old East Berlin, we found the East Berliners unfriendly and rude, whereas the Western side are helpful and friendly. Kreuzburg is delightful, with its markets and friendliness.

    Lot's to See

    Berlin is a lot larger than one may think. There's so much to do there and plenty of sights to see but it is very much your big city so be prepared to walk. There is also a solemn feeling; not too much greenery only the Tiergarten; which is understood to be the feel for Berlin but it can be overwhelming a bit. There is a lot of history some of which is not so happy but never the less it is a must visit city to determine for yourself.

    Insider Tip:A city pass for transit is great! If not familiar with transit maps; you can easily get lost so grab the 24-48-72 hour pass! There is a lot of restaurants especially by the museums but you can get a tastebud explosion just as great from the street vendors, there's plenty!

    Great city, lots of history

    I loved Berlin, not least for the fact that history fascinates me. Planned on staying 3 nights, ended up there 6. Definitely go to the Holocaust Museum (located underneath the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe) and the Topographie des Terrors Museum - both are free. Also do a pub crawl or two.

    Insider Tip:Make sure you go to Konnopke's for some currywurst - best in town!
