Re: Berlin Travelling Tips

You have Potsdam that is just next to Berlin (like 25 kms). Very beautiful city with the park and palaces of Sanssouci where the kings of Prussia used to live.

Telle est la vie des hommes. Quelques joies, très vites effacées par d'inoubliables chagrins. Il n'est pas nécessaire de le dire aux enfants. - M. Pagnol

Re: Berlin Travelling Tips

I concur about Potsdam. It's the best day trip from Berlin.

Go to Auschwitch, Poland! Too heavy? That would be unmemorable. Anyways, free day gets you anywhere on Europe. Paris, even London. Nearby cities that I can fully recommend are Kobenhagen and Hamburg

Re: Berlin Travelling Tips

Hi, Oswiecim (Auschwitz) is indeed worth seeing, but not too close to Berlin. I would suggest Szczecin, or Gorzow. Both Polish cities about 140km from Berlin. Less than 2 hrs travelling each way, and not very expensive. Szczecin is the bigger city, but Gorzow is ok too.

Do the Third Reich tour if you are interested in Nazi history.

And also, if you can, go to Auschwitz. But that would involve flying to Krakow, which is 20 miles away from Auschwitz, since a day trip will be impossible to do from Berlin.

Denmark is not a plausible day trip from Berlin. And Copenhagan (and Hamburg) are larger cities that would make no sense to do in a day.

Anyway, I've heard of people doing overnights in Dresden from Berlin. So that could be fun. But in general Potsdam seems to be the most popular day trip option from Berlin.

Personally, I love Berlin and would just stay there.

Re: Berlin Travelling Tips

THanks for all those suggestion. Would definately be going to Poland for a day.

Ive just found out i have an extra two days. And was thinking of travelling to another city, and go back home from there. Maybe via a budget flight or bus. Any suggestion which city should i go from Berlin. Rome?? anything

This, this and this. In fact, I'd recommend booking another holiday just for Hamburg.

Poznań is just 3 hours away from Berlin by train and it's one of the biggest cities in Poland, fully recommended for a day trip

Re: Berlin Travelling Tips

but 6 hours solely on transport is too much for a day trip. I would rather go there separately. Or stay there for a night or two

Re: Berlin Travelling Tips

You can arrive in Poznan at 09:26am and leave at 8:21 or 9:21pm so it's not that bad Old town is just 10 minutes away by bus from train station so you have a whole day for whatever you want

ps and the trip Berlin-Poznan actually takes 2h40 minutes
