Not fully what I was expecting.... however the museum was informative and interesting. A very nice viewing platform to see a birds eye view of the wall.

Wander along the "death strip" between the walls, on one side the free world and on the other, well you know.

This was a poignant and interesting place to visit. The attached free visitor centre was packed with information but does require a lot of reading.

Excellent exhibition for all ages, giving you just enough about what it must have felt like at the time. Short, emotional and efficient . The best of all the different "wall" museums and exhibitions..

This is the only place in Berlin where you see the entire scale of the wall as it used to be showing the huge space (death strip) between inner and outer walls. Coupled with the sentry tower and associated elements it makes for a poignant...More

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. Get a day ticket for the U and S Bahn €7.00

Hi everyone, Ive just booked a cheap flight and get to Berlin on Tuesday morning at 10am and fly back at 9pm on the following day.

We are looking to stay near the TV tower area or there abouts anyways.

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.

I have a question or two- We are flying to Schonefeld airport arriving at 15.00. I was thinking of taking either the RE7 or RB14 express to Alexanderplatz then the U-Bahn to U Markisches Museum near the hotel. Considering we intend...More

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?
