    Default The SZ guide to Berlin

    So, I'll be going to Berlin in a week or two and staying there for 3-4 days. It's a short stay and I want to get the most out of, so I've pretty much given up on most guide books. They're huge and it's hard to decide what's worth doing and where's worth going, so I thought I'd ask here instead. I've been there twice with my school several years ago, so I've seen most of the usual DDR/Nazi-related museums and stuff, so I wanna skip that part. Instead I was thinking about good museums with modern art, cool shops, interesting places, maybe good places for going out (it's okay that it's not too mainstream), vintage-shops, places to eat and anything else interesting you can think of. Money's short this time so it would be great if some of the stuff was kinda budget-friendly, although I'm willing to spend a bit more of stuff that seems really worth the price. Oh, and I'm 21 years old.

    Thanks!

    Homage should also open soon, its a pretty interesting gallery/shop/event concept: http://www.homage-berlin.com

    go to Mauerpark on a sunday, and whatch drugged up kids who have been partying non-stop since saturday still dancing in the middle of sunday afternoon, you dont see this anywhere else. theres also a big flea market thats always packed.

    Dude, you gotta stay at STRAF. Baller. Milan is a bit of a craphole though... Make sure you go to the Henry Cuir store in the Navigli (you can also stare at the canal where the CCP models were floating).

    No experience with Berlin, but curious as to any value added tax there ?

    Yes there is, as in almost every country in the world. If you live outside EU you can buy tax free.

    Thanx for that.

    Not necessarily so here in Japan. Even though there are certain retailers who may offer tax free for foreigners, I have to say that is not the case otherwise.

    Excellent thread! Thanks for all the suggestions. Too bad Sammlung Boros is booked up for more than a month, as the trip is quite spontaneous.

    Anyone know if there is anything worthwhile going on this weekend? concerts, temporary galleries, etc?

    Thanks!
