A little way out of the city so not hyped up but one of the best museums we've visited - it's gruelling in places but a good mix of media and a treasure trove of information.

This museum is quite far out of Berlin, but well with the visit as this is where the Unconditional Surrender that ended WWII was signed. It is also free. We fortunately had a car and it was easy to find.

This is right on the Eastern fringes of Berlin and tells the story of the German forces surrender to the Russian and Allied forces in May 1945, really interesting with lots of Russian hardware outside.

Hi. I downloaded the BVG app which is brilliant and bought the 3 day travel pass for trains and buses which is great value. I guess you could do Uber which works well in Berlin but will cost more than a 3 day pass. Hope... More
