If You Only Have Three Days in Berlin
If you can only spare three days in Berlin, head to the former East of the city. The buzzy neighbourhoods of Mitte, Friedrichshain and Prenzlauer Berg are dotted with lively cafes and restaurants, and the latter two districts also have vibrant gallery and nightlife scenes, perfect for a 3-day introduction. Berlin’s turbulent history is visible throughout, along with oodles of contemporary street art. Wherever you are, don’t forget to sample the famous Berlin Currywurst.

Berlin on Foot (the Best Way)

Large arrow left

If you do only one tour during your visit, I suggest the free three-hour "Alternative Berlin" tour run by this company. It is mostly walking, with a subway and train here and there. (Make sure to follow your young, fast, walking tour guide closely; several slow people were lost along the way.) This particular tour dabbles in Berlin's history but mostly covers the abundance of graffiti art that blankets this city—plus you visit the largest and most famous art squall. Since it's free, it mostly attracts the younger international crowd. This outfit also offers several more comprehensive (and paid) tours should you want to go in-depth.
