Berlin One Week Itinerary, Anything I'm Missing? Any Suggestions?

Jump to last reply

I'm going to Berlin for a week at the end of October and staying in the City Hostel Berlin hostel just of Friedrichstrasse. I think my itinerary is almost complete just need to add a few things to the night time, restaurants ect. I'm not one to go to museums, do alot of sightseeing or walk round churches or art galleries. Anything history related is what I am interested in. Any museums I go to will not be boringly historic but interactive. I like the weird, quirky, strange, maybe scary attractions, things I can't do back home. I am a 18 year old female travelling alone.

Here's my itinerary:

Friday, Day 1:
Arrive, unpack and do the general 'touristy' things, not my kinda thing but will do them as it will help me get a bearing of my way around the city. I will hopefully be visiting; Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie, Reichstag Dome, East Side Gallery, Jews Memorial, Topography Of Terrors, Buddy Bears country line. I know this is alot for one day, but I will be arriving around 10am so will have the whole day + will only be spending around10-15 mins at each place other than the topography. Anything I miss on this day I'll find time on another day.

Saturday, Day 2:
Tour of Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, Grusellkabinett and maybe visit the Weinerei.

Sunday, Day 3:
Mauerpark Flea Market, Tour Of Spree Park at 1pm and then Madame Tussauds

Monday, Day 4:
Loxx Miniature Railway, Modellpark Berlin, Story Of Berlin Museum, Evening river cruise.

Tuesday, Day 5:
Shopping day! Visit all the main shopping attractions i.e KaDeWe, Europa Centre including the helisimulator. Have dinner in the TV Tower Restaurant.

Wednesday, Day 6:
Potsdamer Platz including stars boulevard, tower and sony centre. 2.30pm tour of Hohenschonhausen Prison. Finish any shopping off.

Thursday, Day 7:
Berlin Zoo, Monsterkabinett, Currywurst Museum + anything else I've missed or want to go back to.

Friday-Return home to UK at 9.30am.

I was thinking of doing the Dining In The Dark experiance, and also want to watch a comedy drag show one evening.
