The Historisches Museum has two areas to explore. The first is the museum itself with well presented displays and historical information about Saarbrucken. The information gives a great insight into the area. The second section is the underground area which has the original footings from...More
Saarbrücken is really two towns - Saarbrücken itself on the Left Bank was the administrative Centre , whilst St Johann across the Alte Brugge has most of the shops , bars and other commercial activities .
Within Saarbrücken itself , the so called “old town...More
This activity can be a bit long but it was really interesting to learn about the History of the region. The place is definitely beautiful. If you plan to visit it, think about improving your language skills as the descriptions are in German and French!
The place is interesting to see but not very large. The Museum is specialized in the 20 th. century close to the entrance in one place and one can see the old walls of the middleage (16. and 17. thcentury) inside on the bottom.
The underground castle was kind of cool but there was absolutely no information in any other language other than German. So I feel that tourists should actually get it for cheaper as if you actually want to learn anything in the museum then it is...More
Only 5€ per person and definitely worth it. It's outside appearance is deceiving of its size. Majority of the museum is underground. Expect to spend at least 2 hours here, longer if you understand German or French. It is a great place for those interested...More
Just back from spending a great week at Radisson Blu in Berlin. My 1st recommendation is to pickup a copy of 'Berlin In Your Pocket' from your Hotel Reception then take the 'Free Walking Tour', a 3.5 hour tour of the central sites, starting at the Brandenburg Gate. Great for getting your bearings. Places visited included: East Side Gallery, Topography Of Terror, Olympic Stadium, DDR Museum, Potsdam, Deutsches Historisches Museum, Ramones Museum (great If you're into Punk !) and a daytrip...More

You certainly made the most of your time! You even managed to squeeze in a day trip to Dresden, which is a beautiful city. Just out of curiosity, how long did you actually spend in Dresden? Now you've had your first taste of Berlin, I'm sure you'll be eager for a swift return for more! There is SO much more to discover!
Very Preliminary Itinerary Advice (13 Replies)
After the great advice I got on my question about times at various sights, I have put together the beginnings of an itinerary. I am planning for the end of Aug/beginning of Sept. I'm sure I can get 1 week, and I'm hoping for 2, as my list is getting very long. I have tried to group things into days geographically and based on time I would expect to spend there. Any advice on things that should be grouped differently or if I have too much or too little would be great. I have some things...More

Day 3 and 4 :do Bendler-Block same day as Gemäldegalerie they are near each other. Silent heroes etc are walking distance (or tram ride) from Friedrichstrasse. Pergamonmuseum and Dom is a light day! I wouldn't do Sachsenhausen one day and Ravensbruck the next. Obviously it's a very personal choice but one concentration camps plus everything else you are doing related to the Holocaust is already a lot (you have included the info centre under the Holocaust memorial as well as Topography of...More
Deutsches Historisches Museum -- what's the entrance fee? (8 Replies)
I'd like to take my family to the German History Museum in Berlin. It certainly seems to get good reviews. Can anyone tell me what the admission fee is, and whether there are any discounts (a family rate, cheaper at certain times, etc.)? When you have a family, sightseeing can get expensive, so discounts are a good thing. Oddly, the official website seems to have no admission fee information, at least in English. Thanks.

Admission fee is 8€, your kids get in for free (if they are below 18). The upper floor covers everything from Roman times to the late 19th century, the ground floor the 20th century. Make sure to start with the upper floor, which is the highlight of the museum and can keep you busy for many hours. The ground floor is somewhat disappointing in my opinion. And don't miss the temporary exhibitions in the Pei building, which IMHO are often more interesting than the ground floor.
