On Thursday we arrive, get settled in the apartment and go out to get a first impression of the city. In the evening we can go to a bar or watch some cabaret, for example. We can discuss the details together. Everyone can bring suggestions :)
On Friday we can take a guided tour of the city. A highlight would certainly be the Brandenburg Gate. But Berlin has much, much more to offer (Reichstag, Museum Island, Victory Column, government district, Tempelhofer Feld ...). We will also be able to marvel at some of it. Here is some more information about the Brandenburg Gate: The Brandenburg Gate in Berlin is an Early Classicist triumphal gate that stands on the western flank of the square Pariser Platz in Berlin's Mitte district. It was built as the conclusion of the central boulevard of the Dorotheenstadt, the boulevard Unter den Linden, in the years from 1789 to 1793 on the orders of the Prussian King Frederick William II according to designs by Carl Gotthard Langhans. The sculpture of the quadriga crowning the gate is a work designed by the sculptor Johann Gottfried Schadow. To the west of the Brandenburg Gate are the extensive green spaces of the Großer Tiergarten, which are crossed by the Straße des 17. Juni in a straight extension of the street Unter den Linden. The square area immediately west of the gate bears the name Platz des 18. März.
Today it gets "greener", we visit the largest forest in Berlin and climb the Teufelsberg. There you can still find remains of the former US listening station from the Cold War, when the city was still divided. After dinner we will have time to dive into the nightlife. Here's some more info on the Grunewald and Teufelsberg: Grunewald is a forest area of about 3000 hectares in the western Berlin districts of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf and Steglitz-Zehlendorf. The forest is the namesake of the villa colony, the Grunewald district, the Grunewald S-Bahn station and the local Grunewald Forestry Office of the Berlin Forests. To the west, the Grunewald forest is bordered by the Havel River. It is crossed by a chain of smaller lakes, the Grunewald lake chain named after it. The largest of these are Grunewaldsee, Schlachtensee and Krumme Lanke. Situated on the Havel River, the Grunewald Tower is located on the Karlsberg. The old Grunewald-Forst cemetery and Berlin's second highest elevation at 120.1 meters above sea level - after the Arkenberg mountains - are also located in the Grunewald area: Teufelsberg, which was heaped up from rubble from the Second World War.
On the last day, we will visit the TV tower and then the city's underworlds. Many bunkers date back to the war period in particular. A special association offers guided tours here. The Berlin Underworlds Association, founded in 1997, is dedicated to a special chapter of the city's history. It researches buildings in Berlin's underground and makes them accessible in guided tours. In Berlin's bunkers, for example, you can learn how people tried to escape through tunnels or sewers at the time of division, or what the "ghost stations" were all about. One of the tours ("Dark Worlds") leads into a former civil defense bunker in the Gesundbrunnen subway station, which the association rented in 1998. About 1300 Berliners were supposed to find refuge during bombing raids in this bunker, which was built into the subway tunnel in 1941/42. In fact, there were often more than three times that number. In the original preserved complex with steel doors and ventilation system, one can imagine how oppressive the endurance in the narrow, stuffy rooms must have been. On four floors, the association shows here evidence of other underground Berlin facilities such as the pneumatic post, the brewery cellars and the sewage system.
