suggested day trips from Berlin


I am in Berlin next month and was wondering if there are any good day trips to nearby locations? I am travelling alone and not very much into museums and stuff but love to explore old towns, WW2 sites etc. Could someone give me any recommendations?

A very nice day trip is Potsdam which is easily reached by public transport from Berlin.

There is a big garden/flower exhibition in Oranienburg until the 18th October. While there you can also explore the city which is nice and also go to Sachsenhausen.

You could also go to Leipzig for a day. Even Rostock and Warnemünde at the coast of the Baltic Sea is nice for a day trip. For that you should take an early train though.

Rostock is an old town, north of Berlin. It will take 2 hrs 20 minutes and 17 euro in the cheapest train. You can see medieval restaurants, churches bombed during world war, old city center, astronomical clocks, german prisons during war, city wall and much more. The central attraction for European tourists here is the baltic sea. I see that you come from Trivandrum, Kerala,India and you may be expecting a hot beach. The beach here is not like in Kerala, its cold here. It will definitely be a new experience for you.

If you come here don't forget to visit medieval restaurants. Its called a Viking restaurant. Do you know what is a Viking? Check this http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/ancient/vikings/

The cheapest train details you can get here.


Good luck and wish you a safe journey

We have chosen to visit Dresden as a day trip from Berlin. We also considerd Leipzig but found Dresden to have more appeal to us.
