Just walking around is amazing. Alot of the attractions and historical points are free. The transport system is brilliant, though most things are in walking distance.
We paid for a 3 day travel card to cover all our public transport – at no points werre our tickets checked and we felt like we had wasted €23, when everyone else was riding for free!
There’s really too much to see and do on one visit that is why it was my second visit to Berlin. I travelled last time with my Husband and two teenage boys and cycled a lot. This time we walked and took the SBahn and visited museums etc.
We had a not so nice experience on a tour within Potsdam, about 40 mins by train from Berlin. The bus tour guide spoke entirely in German and told us to get the headphones. We couldn’t hear the audio as the guide was so loud and then we waited in vain for three quarters of an hour for the hop-on, hop-off bus. We took a regular bus back to the station eventually. We had hoped to get off close enough to Sansoucci Palace, but it was at the Neueu Palace we were dropped off which was a 1.5km further walk. There was no time to do so. There are many road works and Unter den Linden is a bit messy, but it really wasn’t an issue.

Whole experience. Fantastic history and transport system. Not overcrowded.
Berlin is a compact city so sightseeing can be done on foot. If you want to use public transport it is a not expensive and a special ticked is available for short journeys making it very tourist friendly.
Begging and busking on the public transport. Every journey included badly preformed music followed by enthusiastic shaking of a begging cup.
We bought tickets on the off and on bus which gave a guided tour of the city in various languages. It has about 17 stops where you can get on and off at various points in the city. We got off at no 12 and took a trip down the river for an hour and then got back on to finish our tour. We were only in Berlin for a short period of time but managed to see a lot. There was a bus stop close to the hotel which was very convenient.
