Hi My friends and I will be visiting Berlin next week for the first time, can someone please let me know the best way the 4 off us can get from Schonefeld Airport to our - Hotel Park Inn Alexanderplatz? We are wanting to visit the Christmas markets, i know there is one on the square outside our hotel, but are there any others near by that we will be able to walk too or use public transport?

Also what is the weather like in Berlin at the min please?

Thanks in advance

Better not enquire or worry about today's weather, as the North of Germany is still under that gale. This will be over next week.

The last couple of days in Berlin have been much colder than the UK with occasional snow flurries and a high wind chill factor due to the strong wind. This morning (Saturday) was clear skies but still very chilly. Wrap up well !

RE travel..when you get off the plane and exit the airport you can maybe get a berlin welcome card to cover travel and reduced admissions?

Outside the airport is a semi covered walkway leading to the station.

The airport express trains to Berlin usually depart from platform three. As you reach the top of the stairs to the platform look for the small blue ticket validator machines. You MUST validate your ticket only ONCE to indicate the start of its period of usage.

Just put the ticket in the slot and it will thump the date/time on it.

Alexplatz is the third stop from the station.

The trains are fab..

When you exit the train,go downstairs to street level. If you exit the station on the side of the TV tower, go back in and out the other side. Your hotel is very tall and very visible with a big PARK INN sign on top..
