Berlin with teens February

Jump to last reply

Hello all we are going to spend a week in Berlin in late February. Looking to rent an apartment and get a feel for the city. We are interested in modern Berlin and in WW2 sites/museums. We like to have a leisurely pace as we are part way through a long trip. This is our big modern city stop and It is unlikely we will visit art museums or Charlottenberg based on my kids interests. We hope to do a guided walk and enjoy cafes, window-shopping,people watching, trying new foods.

I had a few questions...when we went to Munich we were disappointed that most signage in the Third Reich museum was in German. Will this be the case in Berlin? I'm thinking of Check point Charlie museum, topography of terror etc.

My son is an avid photographer and loves to see interesting modern buildings and street life.
Any suggestions of interesting neighbourhoods?

We would love to take in a concert or other entertainment. Is there an English source for what's on in town?

For an apartment we have heard to choose Mitte. Is there another neighbourhood that would be better suited to our interested with casual restaurants and perhaps more local feel? I love to be near a park to go for a run (weather permitting!) as well as near a good grocer with fresh produce. Have looked at Prenzlauer Berg but it may be further to get to see things...

Thank -you so much for any help!
