Hey guys

Here is a little info that wil help you on your trip to Berlin Germany .

The easy way to travel around Berlin is to use the metro etc. You can buy tickets for from 2 hours to 48 ,72 hours or 5 days
It is cheap and you just vaildate it on the first trip and you can then just hop on and of all the public transport .

The ticket also gives you some discounts on museums and other stuff and you get a little guide to Berlin when you buy it .

It.s is also the cheapest way of getting from the airports of Berlin to your hotel . In my opinion one taxi ride from the airport to the hotel will cost you what a 72 hours ticket wil cost you. So get your ticket in the airport when you land .


Read more about the ticket HERE

If you have a smart phone then you are gone love this little app. Its a card over the citys public transport and works offline.
It can haelp you find your way and get you to where you want. Down load it HERE

Now that you are here the vintage hunt can begin Very Happy


There are two vintage shops in the city .

Toyboxx.de has comics and other sci-fi related stuff and some vintage stuff. It is not a very tidy shop so you might find some vintagae stuffed along side new school stuff or other lines.

The shop are locatet on WiebeStraße 42 / Nürnberger Strasse

Right next door to it there is a big model Train shop. If you are into that kind of stuff .

The nearest metro stations are Augsburger Straße and Wittenberg platz

The other shop is Outpost This is a much more tidy shop where all the sci-fi stuff in devidet into lines and age. They have evry thing form roleplaying games to vintage .

The two guys in the shop Oliver and Ante are wery nice guys to talk to and they know what they are talking about .

The shop is on Berthelsdorfer Str. 13 right next to the Karl-Marx-Straße metro. You go out the metro over the street and there is a little passage way thurgh towo houses , rigth in front of you there is a second hand shop where you can look after you have been i outpost ( If you have the time after that ) And all most just to the left there is Outpost .


Note : The hotels are very expencive with their wireless brodband . ( 10 EUR a day ) But alot of the little Coffey and bagel shops have free internet if you buy a cup off coffe . One so shop is , [Coffeeshop-Company
Friedrichstr. 194-199 right next to the Mitte metro.

But there are many more shops like it around the town.

If you like WW2 and have some free time this is so cool . I have been on two of their guided tours and can only recoment it . Tour 2 is a jaw dropper Shocked http://berliner-unterwelten.de/home.1.1.html

I hope you like this little guide , and feel free to ad info on shops etc. And remember to read the the main post on vintage shops around the world

Cheers

Soren
