As someone in my mid 20s, I always look to capitalize on cities that have a younger vibe and more importantly can offer all different price points. That is why Berlin definitely makes my list of places to go when you are young and can’t afford cities where a single beer costs upwards of $12. I haven’t actually made a list yet but give me some more time and I will make sure I have enough places.
With beers as cheap as 2 euro, and a doner that will cost you another 4 euro, it is hard to go wrong if you are traveling on a budget. Even if you aren’t on a budget and prefer not to spend a ton of money on every deal it is a great place. Berlin is nothing if not a young, vibrant, creative city. It can be overwhelming and welcoming all at the same time.
So where to start? Start by walking. Mitte, which literally means middle, is where many of the traditional Berlin sites are.
You can easily walk to the first three, and take the U to the wall. If you have had a long day from the wall and are a wine lover there is no better place to go than Weinerei . Most people don’t believe me when I tell them about this place. The gist of it is, you pay 3 euro for a wine glass, there is an array of white and red bottles that continually get brought to a front table. It is self serve, and when you are leaving, you pay what you would like. Wine lovers rejoice, this is a godsend.
From sunny days by the East Side Gallery to hiding from the rain on Museum Island, I was never bored while in Berlin. With only four days in the city, I tried to see as much as possible without overwhelming myself. But if you have more time to spend in Berlin, take advantage of it, or just relax in a park on a sunny day with a beer.
I as the planner that I am, pinned tons of articles and lists ranging from food to day trips from Berlin. You can check them out, and tell me what you got to do, I plan on making another stop back in Berlin.
