DK EYEWITNESS TOP 10 TRAVEL GUIDE: BERLIN BY JURGEN SCHEUNEMANN

I recently stayed in Berlin for 4 days and took this useful little book with me, popped it in my pocket and found it indispensible while travelling round. It contains the following:-

  • Pull-out map and guide
  • Guide to the Top 10 best of everything in Berlin
The first section of the book deals with the Top 10 locations in Berlin which were:-
  1. Brandenburger Tor and Pariser Platz
  2. Reichstag
  3. Unter den Linden
  4. Potsdamer Platz
  5. Pergamon Museum
  6. Kurfurstendamm
  7. Kaiser-Wilhelm Church
  8. Schloss Charlottenburg
  9. Kulturforum
  10. Zoologischer Garten
A small map of Berlin shows the locations of all the above places which is handy for planning your travels.

Each of the above places has several pages devoted to it, and also detailing another 10 sights nearby, which was extremely informative.

The next sections give the traveller lots of useful information about Berlin, some of which include:-
  • Lakes, Rivers & Canals
  • Best Places to Eat
  • Famous Berliners
  • Historic Buildings and Modern Buildings
  • Children's Attractions
  • Festivals & Fairs
and lots more.

There is also a section entitled 'Around Town' which gives detailed information about 10 attractions area by area, including shops, Pubs and Bars, Restaurants and Cafes, together with suggestions of what to do for the whole day.

The last part of the book has more practical information about Berlin such as the transport, security and health tips, places to stay, helpful advice for disabled visitors plus lots more. There's also a few phrases that you may need!

This little guide is packed with lots of tips, full of colourful illustrations, a detailed underground map, all of which I found incredibly helpful.

Dorling Kindersley publish more than 60 of these Top 10 Eyewitness Travel Guides from London to Sydney, New York to Marrakech, all in the same easy to read, easy to carry format.

If you're travelling anywhere in the world make sure you take one of these handy little guides with you!
