Page 1 of 5: Day 1 - Reaching The City Centre
We went to Berlin by airplane, flying with EasyJet from Pisa to Berlin Schönefeld Airport. We left quite late, at 20:55 from Pisa and landed in Berlin at 10:50. We got our luggage back and we went to find out how we could get to our hotel in the Ku-dam area.
The guide suggested either the taxi (23-30 euros) or the shuttle to the station and then the U-bahn. We found it much easier to walk for literally five minutes to the very near S-bahn station Flughafen Schönefeld where we got on the S-bahn S45 (a sort of tram system) to the closest U-bahn (the underground) in Wahrschauer Strasse and reached the station of Nullendorf Platze in approximately 45 minutes for 2 euros per person.
Excellent service. There are automatic machines where you can purchase tickets and they have a selection of languages among which English. Therefore, we had no problems in understanding the instructions. Remember to stamp your tickets (which is valid for two hours but not for round trips - it is said nowhere, so maybe it's good to know.)
Being so late, we checked-in at the Scandhotel Castor *** where we were booked and went to sleep. We booked throut an excellent portal which we use often, HotelConnect.co.uk.
The hotel staff was very friendly despite it was past midnight and the bedroom was nice and clean. The only problem were the duvets when a light blanket would have been fine! =o)
