Couple of weeks back, went for a weekend trip to Berlin from Karlskrona. Travelled by train (Karlskrona to copenhagen) and then by bus (Copenhagen to berlin) Eurolines.
Had some gud time on the way in Copenhagen which included a canal tour. A weekend can be spent in copenhagen and we are planning for that too 🙂
Saturday morning we reached Berlin and booked accommodation in Wombat’s hostel in Rosa Luxumberg Station. Taking a group ticket is much cheaper than buying individual tickets. Ticket for a group of 5 for a day costs 15.40 Euro for Zone-A&B and 15.60Euro for Zone-A,B&C. Major attractions and shopping areas are falling under Zone A&B.
On saturday we went for a free walking tour which covers lotz of historic places in about 4 hrs like Brandenburg gate, Berlin wall, Gendarmenmarkt, Checkpoint Charlie and more. And we spent the day in walking tour and doing some window shopping in Alexanderplatz which has Saturn and Media market. You will find whatever electronics items you know in these shops where the prices are comparatively cheaper to other parts of Europe as far as I have seen.
The second day, we visited Potsdam,the place not to be missed in the Berlin trip. St Pauls and peter church and also some palaces like San souci are there.
Overall, Berlin is one of the important places not to be missed in Europe having very interesting history.
More than the place we enjoyed a lot on the way in bus and train, thanks to the mokkais from Dani and Hari.
