Due to the threat of terrorism if you want to visit the Reichstag you need to fill out an online form at least three days in advance of your visit
The best way to see Berlin is definitely by electric scooter, ensure the Lime (electric scooter) is fully charged before you pay for it though!
Try and include a Sunday in your visit so you can go to the Mauerpark (flea market)
Ensure you pre-book the TV-Tower and Hitler's Bunker as they are very popular sights
Bar 203 (at the top of the TV-Tower) can be very hard to get a seat in, but you can prebook tables in the revolving restaurant sphere on their website
Look out for the difference in the atmosphere in the East and West sides of Berlin, there is still recognisable differences in terms of colours, decorations and buildings since the war. The East side is significantly greyer and more bland than the vibrant West side due to the dividing Berlin wall that once stood.
Good to know
Checkpoint Charlie is actually in the middle of a busy road, therefore make sure where your standing for photos is not in the driving lanes.
Uber is highly accessible in Berlin and not too expensive.
Bar 203 (at the top of the TV-Tower) is super expensive
The currency in Berlin, Germany is Euros.
We found that the U-Bahn (underground railway) was quite difficult to understand compared to other cities, but the shop workers were more than happy to help.
The best time to visit, in my opinion, is late November into December. This is because you can visit the Christmas markets and feel the festive charm in the city from the market stalls to the lights.
