We will be in Berlin for 6 days as of next Saturday and I'm trying to work out an itinerary. Here is what I've come up with:
Day 1 : arrival around 1pm, get to hotel (Potsdammer Platz), walk around Mitte (Brandenburg Gate, Holocaust Memorial... ) and Scheunenviertel.
Day 2 (husband’s birthday) : Prenzlauerberg? Mauerpark market. Jewish Memorial + cemetery, Unter den Linden, Gendarmenmarkt. Concert 4pm at Konzerthaus. Dinner either Defne or Café Jacques.
Day 3 : AM : Reichstag (booked 11.30) then ex East Berlin (DDR museum etc;) evening concert at Konzerthaus.
Day 4 : A.M> Neues Museum, P.M >cycle(?) around Kreuzberg (Jewish Museum, Turkish market)
Day 5 : A.M > Topografie des Terrors/ P.M Gemälde Galerie
Day 6 : Charlottenburg/Schönberg . Evening : Pergammon Museum.
Please tell me if it seems logical and if there's anything I've forgotten. The Boros Collection has been booked solid for this period for weeks, so that's out. I've tried to put the major museums on 3 consecutive days in order to be able to use the 3 day pass. Would also be deeply grateful for any restaurant café recommendations along the way, not to mention nice places for breakfast (22 euros per person at the hotel, so won't be going there every day!) Last thing (sorry for unfocused post!!) we are hoping to do lots of walking, but also need advice on different travel card/fare options.
