I would like to ask for your experience with VAT refund for my purchase in Berlin - I'll be taking the train from the main station to Basel, and was hoping to learn in advance about where I can get a customs stamp.
Previous posts here clarify that there is no possibilityto stamp at the Hauptbahnhof in Berlin, but the actual place to stamp is not clear.
Do I need to wait for customs officers to be on the train? can I get a stamp at the German sector of the train station in Basel or is that too late after my departure? and if the counter is closed when I arrive there, what should I do?
Thanks a lot for your help!
