Tips

The city is divided into 3 zones and the price of the public transport tickets changes according to the zones. There are 2 cards also valid for traveling 48 or 72 hours or 5 days but be careful, if you are going to spend just a long weekend, compare prices because buying 3 or 4 day tickets will cost you less than the card. There is also the Call a bike service which allows you to rent a bike to travel around the city but you must have a cell phone to use it. Do not miss to admire the more than 1300 meters of the old Berlin Wall, called the East Side Gallery. More than a hundred artists from more than 20 countries have left their works on it.
