    Default Going to Berlin for 2 days

    Hey guys, I am going in a few weeks to Nederland for my spring break, but for 2 days we will be in Berlin as my aunt has to work. I have a few things I want to see already, The Reichstag, Deutsche Museum, Berlin wall segment, and just wonder around. I can pass by in German fairly well, talking wise, so as she works I get to explore the city during the morning. Any recommendations for places I should visit? I really want to see some former third reich buildings and such, I love basically everything involved with german history so anything will do lol.
    All help would be much appreciated!
    Danke!

    The site of the Fuhrerbunker and No.8 Prinz Albrechtstrasse are worth a visit. The latter is close to the remains of the Berlin Wall and Checkpoint Charlie.
    If you find a bit more time, Sachsenhausen isn't too far and easy to get to via public transport.

    START - Militärhistorisches Museum Flugplatz Berlin-Gatow Try this place if you get the time, it's about a 10 minute bus ride from Spandau town hall!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Have to agree with Ade, Karlhost is a must. Would also ecommend getting copies of the books Berlin Battlefield Guide by Tony Le Tissier (need to buy prior to visiting Berlin) and Berlin 1933-1945 (pastfinder) can be purchased on line and in numerous places in Berlin. These books will give you many ideas of places to visit as well as itineries and self guided tours. Owning one or both will hugely enhance your trip.
