Screenplay by Berlin
We visited the city of Berlin, Germany, in 2010 shortly after we passed through Amsterdam. We arrived May 15 and left 19 days.
The tips of the day were occupied by the arrival and departure city. We take the same three days in the middle.
Importantly, the city of Berlin is a city very rich history and so if you do not have much time there, ideally, a little research and choose the attractions you most like and what you most want to see .
That's how I started my script 3 full days in the city.
Early in the morning, after breakfast, we took the train and went down in Gesundbrunnen.
Day Pass purchase the ticket of transport cost € 6.10 and was valid until 3am the next day for zones AB.
Arriving there, we headed south to the lobby to the subway station (many train stations are integrated with the subway), exit Humboldthain, Brunnenstraße. Here you can purchase tickets for an underground tour through Berlin, the Berliner Unterwelten.
There are several themes of the tour, in several languages. Visit the site and see the schedule and values ( www.berlin-unterwelten.de ).
The Ecuadorian guide who organized my tour, said there is a tour in Portuguese, but must be scheduled. Send an e-mail asking.
The tour lasted chosen 1:30 pm and found places where the Germans were refugees, where the Nazis drew their plans, toilets used at the time and many other interesting things.
After that, we took the subway and get off at the station Uhlandstraße to visit the Story of Berlin Museum which is located at Kurfürstendamm 207, 230m to the station ( www.story-of-berlin.de ).
If you want to know Berlin, you have to know about their origins and development. And this multimedia museum will provide you with all this information.
As a bonus you also get a guided tour of a bunker and never used it falls below this museum.
After the visit, follow the street Kurfürstendamm to the Kaiser Wilhelm Gedächtniskirche that still retains its tower bombed.
We walked about 800m to the beautiful avenue lined with shops, offices and lots of movement.
In the region where is this church you will see many shopping centers with restaurants, cafes and fast foods. We made our lunch here.
After lunch we went to the park. Tiergarten course.
We took the subway station Zoologischer Garten and get off at the Hansaplatz.
We walked through the park to the Brandenburg Gate. There were almost 2.5 km, but the day was so hot, the shoes the most comfortable possible, we realize that neither the distance.
And of course once in a while we stopped to enjoy a little peace of mind.
Before reaching the gate, take a look to your left and see the Soviet War Memorial in memory of Red Army soldiers who fell in war.
