There’s one thing you should know: Berlin is the number one city for carsharing. So you’ll find carsharing vehicles parked and ready for use in both airports: Tegel and Schönefeld. It’s the fastest way to get to the city center and it’s almost half the price of a taxi. No queuing, no hassle.

- Brunch at House of Small Wonder
- Brandenburg Gate
- Holocaust Memorial
- Tiergarten & Currywurst

Start your day with a delicious Berlin-style brunch at House of Small Wonder. Based in Mitte, it’s perfectly located for a city tour when you’re done. Walk to the Brandenburg Gate (be prepared for large crowds). After that, take your time to visit the Holocaust Memorial, a tribute to the murdered Jews of Europe. Quite an emotional start to your trip, but you won’t regret seeing these impressive sights. At the end of your mini sightseeing tour, take a walk through the beautiful and huge Tiergarten park. For lunch, why not stop for a touristy but essential Currywurst.
