Berlin Mitte is the ideal starting point for all activities within the city and in the surrounding area.

Whether you’re interested in art, culture and history, or just want to feel the pulse of the big city, every visitor to Berlin gets their money’s worth.
Berlin Mitte is just fifteen minutes’ walk from the main train station, and can be reached easily from the airport by bus or train. Its great location also allows you to enjoy excursions to the surrounding area.

Just over an hour’s travel from the main train station takes you to Potsdam and the enchanting Sanssouci Palace. It’s once sight you really shouldn’t miss.
For culture vultures, Berlin has a Museum Pass which includes entry to more than 50 museums.
