I'm going to Berlin for 3 nights in December and I was wondering if anyone who has been there before would like to offer a first timer some tips as it's often the little things you know that can really make a holiday. So here goes and bear with me about all the questions :-)
I'm flying in from Northern Ireland to Schonefeld and staying in the city centre. I've read its better to get the train than a taxi, but what does a taxi cost roughly. Is it far to the trains from the airport terminals?
I assume the city will be jumping as it's Christmas but are the shops and Christmas Markets open on Sundays??
Has anyone been on any tours and if so what were they, where did you purchase them and about how much do they cost?
Was there anything with that 'wow' factor that you would particularly recommend doing?
Are there any good pubs / restaurants that you can get a cheap good meal or a good breakfast in?
Do you recommend any local food or drink?
What is the average price of a beer and a packet of marlboro? Can you get cider?
It'll be my boyfriends birthday when we are over and I was thinking of hiring a limousine to take us on a night tour of the city and then for a nice meal. Any thoughts?
Thankyou so much for this and if you ever come to Northern Ireland, you can contact me!
