Best time to travel

may, june + august

Come to Berlin in May, June or August.

 

I excluded July. According to my subjective impression July’s weather is worse.


weather

Berlin is fun. In summer!

I wouldn’t recommend winter time.

Not much to do and to see.

You can see people in metro with a grumpy face. And it is dark most of the day.

February is the coldest month (subjectively).

March, April, September, October are rainy.

Go in summer!


health

It’s Europe. All good.

Just be careful about your liver, when doing heavy drinking and partying ;-) 


security

safe

There are pickpockets for sure. Watch your belongings.

Don’t get nervous about places like Hermannplatz, Kottbusser Tor or Görlitzer Bahnhof. They are not that dangerous.

Also Marzahn is not too bad.

Enjoy the city!


infrastructure (how easy to travel)

Great

You can get everywhere by "BVG", public transport. Metro, bus and trains are connected to one big network. Buy a weekly ticket.

Metro and trains un until 1pm Sunday to Thursday. Later you can use night busses. On the weekend everything running all night.


Bus – train – (rental) car

public transport

 


budget

low

 

Berlin is cheap compared to other big cities like Paris, London or in the US.


Spontaneously or booking in advanced

Spontaneously

 

I can only guess since I live in Berlin.

There are many possibilities for accommodation:
hostels, hotels, Air BnB, Couchsurfing etc.
