  • Get the Berlin welcome card first thing you are in Berlin as a tourist especially when you have kids w you. The card entitled kids to travel for free on public transport for free w you. It offers a lot of discount at many tourist sites. Great deal!
  • Girl who attended me was very kind and printed a 3day tour route for me, which was also very nice, but the city maps costed some money.
