As Berlin is one of the largest European cities, it can become quite an expensive trip. There are hundreds of things you can do here, but many of them come at a price. This guide will help you to have fun in this city on a budget, so you don’t need to worry about going broke!
Go on a Free Walking Tour
Find a Sandemans walking tour and you can’t go far wrong. These tours are free and they usually meet at the hours of 11am and 1pm outside of the Brandenburg Gate Starbucks. You’ll be able to see many of the attractions that Berlin has to offer, and learn all about them in the process. The guides are very nice and knowledgeable, so if you enjoy your tour don’t hesitate to leave them a tip. Creating a free itinerary is a good idea, but make sure you include a walking tour or two!
Relax in the Park
Tiergarten is the second biggest national park in Germany, but it’s also a fab place to relax. If you’ve had a busy day, whether you’ve been exploring or not, head over here to see what Berlin is really all about.
Learn the History and Take in the Views
The Reichstag is a must visit in Berlin, and is full of interesting history that even those uninterested in history will enjoy. Once you’re there, you can take in panoramic views of the city, so it definitely shouldn’t be missed!
There are a ton of free museums in Berlin that you can get into for free. There are more than 10 museums and some more you can get in for free on specific days, so you won’t run out of museums to visit. There are art museums, museums that focus on the cold war, and even museums inside of a Nazi concentration camp.
View the Berlin Wall Memorial
Open all year round, the Berlin wall memorial is a comprehensive attraction to teach you everything there is to know. There’s a visitor’s centre and bookshop too.
Explore Berlin’s Neighborhoods
Comparing Berlin’s neighborhoods to those in Playstation games ‘The Urbz’ is the best I can explain it. Exploring these neighborhoods will give you a great idea of the different personalities in Berlin. Some areas are into the hip hop scene, while others are quite artsy. The hotels in Berlin are nice and worth a look too. You can get a great feel for them just by taking a walk.
For some exciting street art and bargain finds, make sure you head over to the flea markets in Berlin. You don’t even need to spend money here, as they are entertaining enough with just the atmosphere to go on!
We all love a bit of karaoke, don’t we? Well you’ll love it even more outdoors at Mauer Park in front of up to 1000 people. This event is hosted every Sunday, so if you fancy your singing skills you should definitely go along.
