Dining in Berlin

Will be staying at the Berlin Marriott for 2 nights in November.  What are some good places to get local food?  Planning on just walking around the first day there (we arrive at 3-4PM), and probably going to go to the Berlin Zoo on our full day there.  Last day is sort of shot, as we fly out mid-day.

 

Also, how much time does one need to see the Zoo?  Thanks!

    kh,

     

    Berlin is a very "Under appreciated" city!

     

    The Marriott is a wonderful hotel, right in the "Heart" of everything.

     

    You can take the subway (Or could, I have not been there for a few years) to the hotel and save yourself some money.

     

    Make sure you contact Arkwright, as he is very good about information on Berlin.

     

    A couple thinks to experience:

     

    Get your subway pass at the airport to cover all your transportation while there.

     

    See the "Checkpoint Charlie" area, and the "Cold war" museum next door.

     

    Visit Brandenburg Gate area.

     

    Take an English speaking tour of WWII history locations.

     

    Visit "Old" East Berlin, and see how vibrant the area has become.

     

    Visit the shopping area, and the wonderful department store there.

     

    kh, never been to the Zoo.  It's not for me. 

     

    Ate at Vau's and it is not far from the hotel and very good.  View the menu prior to going into anyplace, and make sure it fits your budget and food desires.

     

    Berlin is way bigger than Paris, and a most interesting and historic place.

     

    Good luck!

      Jerrycoin,

       

      Thanks for the wonderful information!  Unfortunately, I'll have to keep the historical visits to a minimum, as the future Mrs. doesn't care for that kind of stuff much.  I will make it a point to visit the Brandenburg Gate and Soviet War Memorial at the very least in our brief time there.  Will also make sure to check out that department store.  I've heard of it being compared to Harrod's, so it must be amazing! 

       

      Thanks again Jerry!
