what is the transport like to and from the hotel and main berlin centre and how much roughly
The U-bahn(underground/tube) has a stop literally in front of the hotel. Because Berlin is essentially two cities there isn't a trurban centre as such but I kind've regarded Alexanderplatz as the centre. We bought a Welcome to Berlin travel card when we arrived so I can't comment on individual journey costs. Our travel card covered us for all forms of public transport and made our stay very easy.Berlin is a very large place and a lot of the attractions are very spread out, we found the open top bus tours a great way to get our bearings and pick out what we really wanted to see. Hope you have a great time!
Get the day travel card xx you're not far from the main line train, and the underground is virtually outside the door! .... brilliant links, just make sure you verify your tickets in the stamp machine on the platforms xx
I bought a 72 hour Welcome card at the airport upon arrival. It cost 30 euros. This covers all transport - underground, train, bus & tram. It's incredibly easy to get around and you don't have to wait long for anything as they are very frequent. There is a U-bahn station litteraly outside the hotel and it is 5 stops to Alexandraplatz which is a great place to connect to virtually everywhere else. Don't book taxis as they'd be a waste of money. At the airport buy a Welcome card and get the train into Berlin. The card also gets you discounts at loads of places and you get a great map and guide book as well. Have fun!
It is 7 Euros 40 cents (I could be wrong about the cents!) for a day travel card. You can travel with up to three kids on the same card (I think that's what I understood and no one stopped us!)
10 minutes to Alexanderplatz trains every 5. From there you can get anywhere, by foot, bus, tram or train.
