Customer Travel Tip: Try to see the non touristy areas if you dare... Don’t go in gangs to Berghain and dress down. Otherwise they will tell you to go.. and there’s no pleading with Berlin bouncers. And don’t bunk on the U-Bahn you will be caught..other than that enjoy l

Liked: Everything

Disliked: Maybe the traffic lights need to be speeded up and not allowing drivers to turn as your crossing the road to a green man. They also take forever to change and it’s illegal to Jaywalk here... Other than that it’s a city that blows ur mind
