so im going Berlin on thursday whats worth seeing and doing? i'm only there 2 days.
oneof my favourite bars is Schocoladen or ZAR - its in an old chocolate factory on Ackerstrasse north of Mitte. They often have bands on there.
Prezlauerberg is good. Check out some of the parks further out of mitte but staying in the east - pretty run down but they sum up Berlin for me.
Also the jewish museum and the jewish memorial.And go up the TV tower in alexanderplatz - great views.
Tacheles is good but VERY touristy. Check out the tramp guy there if you go - hes usualy hanging arond the bars - apparently he used to be married to the head of the CIA who was only 14 at the time and he is now being hunted by the Israeli Secret intelligence. Allegedly. according to him that is. He smells quite bad tho
It's pretty intense though, but certainely worth it. There's an area where there are these copper items all over the floor in the shapes of simplified faces. You're supposed to walk on them. Fucking hell, it's just very very intense.
bish bash bosh
It's flippin ace.
