Help with Berlin itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hello, folks!First post ever cause I really need help to finish my itinerary for Berlin. I'll be there in July, arriving on a saturday (noon) and leaving a week later, on a sunday (8:30 PM). Berlin has so many things to do I've realized that I won't be able to do everything I want. So, I`m asking for help to know if I`m covering the major attractions and, mostly, to know if waht I`ve planned for each day is doable without rush.

I'll be travelling with my wife, we're in our 30's and in good shape. We like to walk around, people-watching, and also love museums, history and culture. We'll stay near Lutzowplatz. The plan is as it follows:

Saturday (Berlin Wall day): arriving at 12 PM; check-in; take the U-bahn to see the East Side Gallery; walk to and around Alexanderplatz; U-bahn to Berlin Wall [email protected]

Sunday (Contemporary Art day): Hamburger Banhof; guided tour to Sammlung Boros; Tacheles; Berlinische Galerie

Monday (Under den Linden day): Brandenburger Tor; Bebelplatz; Humboldt University; Neue Wache; Deutsche Historisches Museum; Gendarmenmarkt.

Tuesday (Potsdam day): day trip to see Schloss Sans-Souci and gardens, Charlottenhof and Cecilienhof. Checkpoint Charlie after return to Berlin.

Wednesday (Kudamm day): breakfast at Winderfeldtmarkt; Gemaldegalerie (buy the 3-day MuseumPass); Potsdamer platz (Film Museum and Sony Center); Kudamm (KWG Kirche, KaDeWw, Savignyplatz).

Thursday (Museum Island day): Pergamon, taking as many time as necessay; break to see the Berliner Dom; lunch at Hakesche Hofe; return to MuseumInsel, since it will be open until 10PM and go to Neues Museum and Altes Nationalgalerie.

Friday (WW II day): Olympiastadion (arrive at opening hour, 9AM); Haus der Wansee Konference; Holocaus Memorial; Topographie des Terrors.

Saturday (Bundestag day): We have booked guided tour to the Bundestag at 1h30 PM. After that, we will stroll through the Tiergarten. What could we do in the morning, before the Bundestag?

Sunday (Charlottenburg day): Schloss Charlottenburg and gardens. Departure flight at 8h30PM. Would we have time to do anything besides Charlottenburg?

In July Berlin has sunlight until 9PM?

Sorry for the looong post. Any suggestion will be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
