Getting around the city
There is aspecial offer in the summer moths, offering a ticket for 9 €, which you can use the whole month all over Germany. Excluded are the fast trains, like IC or ICE. That means in Berlin you can use any form of public transport with this ticket.
Best bike rental in town (4 € a day)
If you want to be flexible with your vehicles, we can recommend the app “Jelbi” which includes the public transport ticket, but also many kinds of shared mobility services – cars, bikes or e-scooters.
For skateparks, there is a brochure with almost all the parks, curated by our beloved Skateboard Verein.
One special mention: If you have a bit more time in Berlin, check out the newly built Spade Bowl in Potsdam. It is a massive DIY bowl with an exquisite pool coping. You will find it here. (why not visit a lake after?)
Berlin is full of bars and Spätis (little corner shops) open all night, mostly. But temperatures are rising during the daytime. What about a swim?
Check this Berlin bathing map, featuring lakes around the city and inner-city pools.
No secret tips, unfortunately. Airbnb prices have skyrocketed and hostels are hostels.
