Helsinki and Berlin...opinions please?

Jump to last reply

We are coming to the end of three months in London and we have one last hurrah,13 nights between Helsinki and Berlin. I get that these are not the most obvious fellows but the flights into Helsinki and out of Berlin are fixed, Yes, there's lots more to see but we always try to maximize everything and often end up with crazily convoluted itinerary. So this time we are thinking of doing something different, 6 nights in Helsinki and 7 in Berlin, or should we do 5 in 8? Or should we let you convince us to go to a third destination, Krakow or Riga perhaps 4, 3 and 6?

Background, friends of our really liked the week they spent in Helsinki last year and we have been meaning to make it to Berlin for years. One Brit, one American in our 40's and 50's. We travelled a lot, we're big museum/architecture/art types, like walking and I like gardens. I'm thinking of pretty nice hotels. Food recommendations would be great too.

So, I guess the question would be where to stay in Berlin, neighborhood and if anyone has any tips for Helsinki?

Thanks very much for any help! I'm happy to trade for advice on London, Paris, Rome, SF, Burma, India etc.!
