Maria M's City Tips

  • -In the morning, in many cafes there are special offers for cakes and coffe. The same can apply late in the evening before cafe closes. Be attentive, don't miss these offers.
  • -In the evening, it is hard to find a place to eat, because they are overcrowded. If possible, start your dinner no later than 17:30.
  • -travelling in a company, buy one special ticket for 5 persons, if you need to use public transport during the day.
  • -If possible, choose a room/apartment for rent in Mitte, near Alexanderplatz, because you won`t need to use transport to get tot the majority of places of interests
