How can you enjoy the sights in Berlin while avoiding the crowds?

If you are going to see some of the museum's in and around Berlin I would definitely recommend the museum pass. It gives 3 consecutive days access to all museums in the program (you get a book telling you which ones with the card). You only need to go in to three museums and you have pretty much broke even on the cost of the card. It also cuts out most of the ticket queues as you just show the card to get in. You do still need a timed ticket for some museums though so read the signs as you will be refused entry if you don't have one, they are free but where required you must have one. If you are going to the Pergamon museum I would recommend getting there before it's scheduled opening time. I got there half an hour before the advertised time and was let in. A couple of hours or so later and there was a 2hr queue just to get tickets. It is also stupidly busy on weekends as buses ship a lot of tourists in from the surrounding cities and countries so I would avoid these days if possible.

    Hotels that guests love in Berlin

    • Das Literaturhotel Berlin was definitely the best hotel we've stayed during our trip across Germany. Besides very romantic/cosy atmosphere this hotel has something very special - staff performance. They are really friendly and helpful. We were like at home. Thanks to them our stay was absolutely amazing. No doubt - next time in Berlin we'll stay in this hotel. When you'll be there, give them Best Regards from Arnis and Karina from Letland

    • Comfortable room, great bed ! Excellent and affordable roomservice Plenty of on street parking so no need to use the expensive hotel parking Location close to Berlin's highlights Efficient and friendly staff Extremely well organized hotel (as expected though, since it's in Germany)

    • Spotlessly clean hotel with very efficient staff . It's guard to believe this skyscraper hotel( one of the tallest buildings in Berlin) stands in the site of a revolution that eventually united east and west Germany.

    • It's an awesome, modern hotel with a great river view, friendly staff and a cool bar in the lobby. Both U and S bahn stops are very close. If you're in Berlin for the first time, you will be tempted to find a hotel in Mitte. DON'T. Berlin is the city that is best experienced when staying in a Kiez (burrow) that is a bit away from the tourist noise. We'll be back to nhow soon :)

    • The accessability, friendliness of the staff. Information regarding Berlin was excellent. I would certainly use this hotel again when I visit Germany for another sight seeing holiday. Many of my friends and acquaintances who are interested in Central Europe and it's history will be welcome and would enjoy staying at your hotel and I shall inform them of my positive experience.
