Social activities

To fully enjoy Berlin, some sight seeings are planned, see below:


We will enjoy a dinner at a Biergarten, specifically Prater, the oldest Biergarten in town. Address: Kastanienallee 7-9

How to get there: just pick either trams M1 or 12 direction not Am Kupfergraben (both M1 and 12 end there, which is actually next to Fredrichstrasse, but have 3 different endings on the other way). Stop at Eberswalder strasse. It takes less than 20 minutes and you get to enjoy Berlin from the street :)

Veggie note: is a bier garden so do not expect much vegeterian food. Fortunately is Kastanienallee, one of the best streets where to find places to eat in Berlin.


We go on a trip to Potsdam (not to confuse with Postdamer platz!). More details to come, but Einstein will be quoted several times.


TBA Something about a ship, but have to be confirmed...


Good Italian food in Berlin? Yes, definitely, more details to follow.


Nothing planned right now, we will see how many are we and go by probably (rest assured that there are thousand wonderful places in Berlin ;)

Locks needed ;-)
