Berlin Itinerary

We went two years ago in Berlin, Germany. Berlin is one of the most beautiful and interesting city in the world. It is a haven for artists and freedom of expression. This place is so far the top one in my most loved city destinations.

I want to share our Berlin Itinerary and I hope I could help someone to get an idea about a short 4D /3N stay in Berlin.


1. 7 hours travel time from Utrecht Central Station (ICE) - Duisberg, Germany, from Duisburg to Berlin.
2. Where to stay?
Hotel Berlin Berlin : From Berlin Hbf, take S-bahn S5, S9 of S75 going to Berlin Zoological Garden; then take Metro U2 going to Nollendorfplatz; walk towards the hotel, via de Einemstraße and the Lutzowplatz. The hotel is located at Lutzowplatz 17.
3. Evening short exploration: Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church/Europe Center/KaDeWe. Enjoy the evening!

How to get there:
Walk from the hotel north, cross over the bridge (Klingelhöferstraße). You come mainly in the park (Tiergarten), further walk at the crossing Great Star (Großer Stern) where the Victory Column (Siegessäule) lies.
