Take the U8 to Bernauer Str then you can walk down towards the museum, you can walk along parts of the wall still standing and where the church was demolished to build the wall.

I agree with abalada. Don't try to do this without using the subway. Even getting to the subway usually takes about 15 minutes, so don't worry, you'll walk. In Munich you might get by without a subway ticket, but not in Berlin.

Thanks jordanbulls for the reply. I really appreciate your input. I had thought about the walking tours since the walking time between the places we want to see is around 15 minutes or so. Will have a look at the ones you mention and see if they fit in with our schedule. Wondered if yourself or other travellers could comment on my choice of train to and from the airport? Also if it is possible to get a data sim to use in Berlin for Google maps? Thanks again and regards Neil

Noted that there are free walking tours available in Berlin too. Are these free tours good too (like those Organised by sandeman) as compared to those which we need to pay?
