We went on a walking tour with 'Walking Tours in English' for 4 hours around Central Berlin, costing 12 euros. Fantastic value. The Deutche History. Museum is also amazing, not to mention Panorama exhibition near Check Point Charlie

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.

all of them -- buy 3-day museum pass; Potsdam castles & WWII conference site (all-day trip); pre-arrange visit to Bundestag & Reichstag Dome (best during the daytime); Wannsee Conference site; Berlin wall

Martin-Gropius-Bau is always hosting some great stuff, it's always a sure shot. And it's quite cheap. Don't ignore photography galleries in open spaces like train stations etc. (like World Press Photo in 2014).

We actually didn't enjoy the food in Berlin in the typical restaurants. When we went a bit further away from the key tourist area, we found some lovely little restaurants (including at the ME art gallery - great food)! My daughter says that her favourite German food is Italian, and sadly it was. We did find the most amazing food hall in the big department store.

Visit the main tourist attractions then explore the experiences like the stasi prison or take an unterwelten tour to gain a greater understanding of the lives of people in Berlin in the past.

We bought the Berlin Welcome Card which allowed us access to all public transport for entire trip without having to worry about buying tickets of accidentally getting on wrong tram/bus/train/underground etc! Plus the ticket gave us discounts on attractions.
Very reliable.

You will have to do some home cooking, get some groceries from the amazing stores and markets and cook your own food. The Turkish stores has amazing fresh vegetables and meats to cook up Sucuk, Sesame Bread, Feta Cheese with Tomatoes, Cucumber, olives for breakfast. Try Mante with yogurt and Kofte for Dinner with a fresh salad with cucumber, feta, olives, tomatoes and mint leaves.

What should you avoid to make the most of the nightlife in Berlin?

If you want to experience the true nightlife in Berlin - DO NOT GO CLUBBING!!! Too many bouncers in Berlin are probably not valued in the society, therefore they take it out on tourists (stupid gorillas on steroids) ... It is very very very difficult to get in night clubs there, and when you do, it is totally NOT worth it.. Better go bar crawling, you will meet much more people and see much more of the city...
