Step by Step Guide For Cheap Trip in Berlin

Hey, travelers! :)

Have you ever wondered what should be your next travel destination? Europe, Asia, America? Well...I have a suggestion for you :)

Berlin is one of my favourite cities and for surely MUST be on your travel list.

Here's why...

Every person has its own reasons, when it comes to visiting cities or countries. For me, that was an opportunity to discover another European capital (as part of my goal to visit all capitals in Europe till 30) and to see what makes Germany so advanced in technological, cultural and scientific aspect, what makes this country so democratic and open-minded among other countries?

What transport should I use?

Before making any reservations, make sure you have checked all the available ways to get there. Unlikely in Bulgaria, the train transport in Central and Western Europe is more expensive than the bus transport. And besides, I love travelling with RegioJet | Student agency buses – comfortable seats, screens on every one with more than 20 movies and TV series (Friends and Big Bang Theory), hot drinks, newspapers and magazines ALL FOR FREE! Literally, I can travel 10hrs and won’t get bored at all. You feel like you are on an airplane first class and the prices are very cheap! Prague – Berlin for only 19€! For me, the best way to get to the German capital!

HINT: They’re available in almost every European country. The prices are cheaper during the week. Just check their website.

Where should I sleep?

For cities like Berlin, where the public transport is developed at the highest level, you don’t need to book a hotel/hostel right next to the Brandenburg Gate. Most of the landmarks are situated near the center, and with so many trams and buses, you can get there in no time. If you are a solo traveler, or even if you have your boyfriend/girlfriend/friend in your company, I recommend Pfefferbett Hostel or Generator Berlin Prenzlauer Berg. Both have options for twin room, or a cheap bed in a shared room for low prices starting at ~13€. Free Wi-Fi, great location, nice facilities and enough lobby space if you are a digital nomad as me and you need to work on your laptop J

HINT: Book your room during the week. Some websites such as www.hostelworld.com and www.hostels.com offer special prices, you just need to follow them time-to-time.

ICH BIN HUNGRIG! Where to eat in Berlin?

My suggestion is when you book your room make sure the breakfast is included. We all know that it is the most important meal of the day, so fill in your stomach and body with enough energy, because you will have a long walk during the day! For lunch, my favorite German food is die Currywurst. A fried pork sausage seasoned with curry ketchup and topped with curry powder. In addition to it, order Pommes or Boulette (Pretzel is delicious too), and don’t miss to taste some traditional Berliner beer. You are in Germany after all J Also, Germans love to add potato salad or pickled cucumbers.

HINTS: Don’t waste time in a restaurant. Visit some of the local fast food chains such as Witty’s, Konnopke’s Imbiss or Curry36.
