    Hi all, looking forward to the ISRII conference, especially as this will be my first time to visit Berlin! For those who know / have visited Berlin, what would be your top 5 recommendations for things to do?

    The Berlin Wall, definitely – for me, anyway.

    I just found this awesome website, which maps our 3-, 4-, and 5-day itineraries for visits to Berlin – complete with an app that links to your calendar…http://www.visitacity.com/en/berlin?gclid=CjwKEAjwqZ7GBRC1srKSv9TV_iwSJADKTjaDjGp4Xm3Pj8nj58DebLj-RRsPFJAhGxWSguf1GasrRBoCHAbw_wcB

    The Tempelhofer Field – one of the world’s largest buildings in a central location for public use

    At the beginning of the 1920s, Tempelhof airport was built on the site. After the airport closed the city of Berlin reclaimed the 386-hectare open space as recreation area.
    Today, the area has a six-kilometre cycling, skating and jogging trail, a 2.5-hectare BBQ area, a dog-walking field covering around four hectares and an enormous picnic area for all visitors.

    Have you ever heard of the Kingdom of Prussia?

    It was a German kingdom under Frederick the Great that constituted the state of Prussia between 1701 and 1918 and included parts of present-day Germany, Poland, Russia, Lithuania, Denmark, Belgium and the Czech Republic.

    Sanssouci is the summer palace of the King of Prussia, in Potsdam, near Berlin. It is often counted among the German rivals of Versailles.

    You can use public transport to get there.

    Travel time: 40-60 minutes
    Public transportation: 3.40 €

    I am not that big on sight seeing recomendation but two come to mind:
    – take a walk from Hackescher Markt to Museums Insel to Berliner Dom follow Unter den Linden to Brandenburger Tor and Holocaust Memorial and the Reichstagsgebäude
    – Eastside Gallery (Artists painted on a part of the Berlin wall)
