What else to do in Berlin
Here are some ideas of what else to do in Berlin.
The Berlin Zoo (in West-Berlin) or Tierpark (in East-Berlin) – not just for kids!

World War II Bunker: At the U-Bahn Station Gesundbrunnen, you can visit a real World War II bunker. They offer great 1-hour tours.
Parks: there is the Südgelände (a former railway shunting yard), Gardens of the World in Marzahn (a former international gardening exhibit on 42 hectars), the Spreepark (an abandoned amusement park), or Tempelhofer Feld (the former runway field of the Tempelhof airport).

The Citadel goes back to the 13th century, and Fort Hahneberg is the last significant fortification built in the 19th century. Both are located in the West of Berlin (Spandau).
Berlin Dungeon. A haunted house experience, great fun for those who like it spooky.
Peacock Island: an island in the Havel, to be reached by ferry. What you’ll find: an old castle, water buffalos (sometimes) and lots of peacocks.
Turkish market in Kreuzberg takes place every Tuesday and Friday from 11 am to 6 pm. It is located along the Maybachufer in Neukölln.
Fleamarket on June 17 (that’s the name of a Street and not a date!). It takes place Saturdays and Sundays, starting at 10 am. There are many other fleamarkets, but this one is the most famous one. Closest train station: Tiergarten
Kreuzberg mountain (Berlin’s largest elevation), climb up for a nice view over the city, along the Viktoria park waterfall). On top you will find a Monument dedicated to the 19th century Wars with the model Iron Cross.
A show at Friedrichstadtpalast
Charlottenburg Palace Concert and Dinner
Techno club such as Berghain – but don’t count on getting in the first time.
Botanical Garden (they offer special nights such as a Christmas Special in December or a Tropical Night in the Summer)
Wannsee - they offer great tours, for example the 7-lake tour, or just a 2-hour tour
spend a summer evening in one of the many beer gardens (for example am Neuen See in Tiergarten, Golgatha in Viktoriapark, Loretta’s on the Wannsee)
