Trip Report Berlin Recommendations & Trip Highlights

Jump to last reply

Hi. Recommendations from my trip to Berlin:

Visit the Checkpoint Charlie Museum: Relive successful escapes from East Germany through photos, documents and the actual get-away contraption. Don’t miss the third floor, in particular the somber/creepy/mesmerizing Matthias Koeppel

See the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe Memorial: ut-in-the-open and located in a busy section of Berlin, a constant reminder of the past.

Visit the Berlin Historical Museum (Deutsches Historiches Museum). You’ll learn a lot, and some of the images (none exactly cheerful) will stick with you for awhile.

Visit the Pergamon Museum. Everyone whispers here.

Visit the DDR Museum: Dig-in and experience life in Berlin Wall-era East Berlin firsthand.

Visit the Bauhaus Archive Museum if Design: If you're into design.

Visit the Berlin Film and Television Museum (in the Sony Center): If you're a movie buff.

Tour the Reichstag. Walk a spiraled ramp hugging the perimeter of a glass dome (representing transparency in government) to be treated to an unparalleled 360-degree view of Berlin.

Sneak into the DZ Bank building (3 Pariser Platz square): There's an architectural surprise awaiting you inside.

Check-out The Berliner Dom Cathedral: Stunning domed ceiling

Stay at the Propeller Island City Lodge: You know it’s not your father’s hotel when there’s a sign in the display case at the front desk forbidding sex in the coffins.

Lunch at Kaufhaus de Westens (KaDeWa) Food Hall: Department store food hall rivaling Harrod’s.

Dine in the dark at unsicht-Bar: Berlin’s “blind restaurant”.

See the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church: For contrasting architecture.

Eat a currywurst: Ubiquitous, weiners.

Shop the Prenzlauer Berg neighborhood: Full of modish shops and galleries.
