Long Layover – Berlin Edition
What do you do when you have an eight hours long layover in Berlin? – Explore it, of course!
Take advantage of long layovers to explore a new place even if it’s just to get coffee. In Berlin, it is possible to do a quick stop at the Brandenburg Gate or Alexanderplatz since everything is so centralized.
Things to consider:
- Carry cash for the bus ride
- Make sure you are not dragging any luggage with you (I checked my bag just for this)
- Mind your time! Make sure you don’t wonder too far or get lost and miss your connecting flight – The key: Research
Of course you won’t have enough time to properly explore a city in five hours but it is always nice to get fresh air, enjoy a stroll, and have a nice meal too.
I had the opportunity to explore the main attractions and sit for a coffee. The day was clear and the weather was just perfect.
Needless to say, I will be back to explore this eclectic city again. Berlin, Ich liebe dich!
