Where in Berlin are...

Hi there!

I am interested in going to Berlin to visit Weisensee Cemetery, the old Jewish Hospital and the Jewish museum/archives. As I don't speak and cannot read any German whatsoever, can you please tell me, if the above are in the north, south, east, west, or central Berlin?

Also, which part/s of Berlin should I be looking at regarding accomodation that isn't too far away from the 3 places I'd like to visit? And which Berlin airport should I be landing at that is closest?

Finally, does anyone know of a map online where I can see where all the places are I'd like to visit?

Thanks very much for your help

Somewhere central. Berlin is a huge and widespread place.

But has an excellent public transport system.

Plays no role really. Bigger distances are mad up by faster means of transport. You need 20-30 min to reach most of central Berlin from all 3.

BVG map which also shows public transport

It's best to stay in Central Berlin, preferably in the Eastern part like Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg. Anyway, basically anywhere in Central Berlin is fine as Berlin has a pretty good and efficient public transport system so you get around quickly and easily.

As for the aiports ... it doesn't really matter which one you fly to.

One more thing - is there a tourist information desk at all airports in Berlin?

Thanks

There are information desks at the airport, where you'll get some tourist related information and services.

There are however no official branches of Berlin Tourism at the airports
