Questions about Berlin Itinerary

Jump to last reply

My mom, daughter and I (13) are going to be in Berlin June 26-July 6. We have come up with a rough itinerary for our time there. I should note we have all been to Berlin a couple of times, so there are some things we have already seen. So we're not focusing on the wall related sights as much this trip. I have a couple of questions on the specifics and welcome any comments/suggestions on the plan in general. Thanks!!

Specific Questions:

I'm a little confused about the need to book a time at the Pergamon and Neues Museum. My research seems to conflict. Is it wise/necessary to book a time ahead?

On the day we go to Schwerin we will have a car. The apartment we're staying at is in the 'Green Zone', which as far as I understand requires a special sticker to drive in the area. Can the car rental co provide this or will we need to purchase it? I've seen that you purchase one at a gas station. It is not a huge deal, but I'd like to pick up the car early and pick the family up at the apartment, and I don't want to get a huge fine.

General Plan:
June 27 Arrive morning, settle in apartment in Prenzlauer Berg, Philharmonic at night

June 28 Peacock Island and Wannsee (weather permitting!)

June 29 Reichstag booked for 10am, Jewish memorial, afternoon in Nikolaiviertel (we have a private tour guide booked for this area with a guide who specializes in family history as our family came from this area)

June 30 Museum Island

July 1 German History Museum, afternoon at the zoo

July 2 Potsdam

July 3 Day trip to Schwerin
