48 Hours in Berlin
The Best Areas to stay in
Getting to your hotel
Getting into the city from either of Berlin’s airports is easy enough. There is public transportation both by bus and train. We suggest getting on the S-Bahn just make sure you get an A-B-C zone ticket as the airports are located in zone C.
If you came by train into any other stations (Hauptbahnhof, and Gesundbrunnen) Jump on the S Bahn with a simple A-B ticket.
There is no need to get a car in Berlin just get to your hotel and your set with public transport.
The Best for A Strict Budget
If you are on a strict budget check out places in Friedrichshain. This locally popular district is just east of Alexanderplatz and offers some of the best deals we have heard of. You can also check out some of the areas by the zoo close to kudam.
The Safest Bet when it all booked or Busy
Well, sometimes Berlin gets pretty full. Whether it’s an event weekend or just a busy summer weekend. Make sure to look up one of the hundreds of hostels as they often offer private rooms as well and not all of them list online. In a pinch call places up and when they are full ask if they know any places with a room!
See the Most the Fastest
This one is fairly easy. Anything in Mitte will do quite nicely here. The Public transportation all runs through Mitte, and many of Berlin’s most visited highlights and areas are here too.
