I can't give you any particular advice, although I was there a few years ago, but really Berlin is one of those cities you just need to drift around. Have a couple of things you want to check out but just find your way from there on. You'll have a great time regardless of what you find out here.

one subway-station: "schlesisches tor" (U1), it's in the district 'kreuzberg', in the south-east.

it's a really good starting-point.

graffiti equipment supplier 'overkill' is right around the corner.

see this google-maps-link.

remaining parts of the berlin wall are nearby (just renovate recently), as are huge murals by blu, os gemeos and many more.

good doner kebab is also easy to find in that area, at "bagdad" at the schlesisches tor for example.

"sofia" is a nice place to drink coffee and smoke. link.

 

bring warm, functional clothes. it's like -5°C, snow & wind atm.

 

keep an eye on your stuff; people steal a lot in berlin i think.

 

get a ticket for public transportation for the whole time you're staying.

organize how you get home / to your hostel on your own, before you go out.

people often want to help, but send you in wrong directions because they're stupid.

use this website.

 

don't let peoples worn, bitter faces drag you down; this city is a bitch in winter.

 

 

ah, and alomost forgot -

PARDY.

berlin is f'ing great for party.

 

check out "lido" for example, or the "d.o.t. club". of course it always depend on who's playing, but the locations are great, and the public amplification both these clubs have is f'ing great.

 

 

have a good time!

The only things I really remember about Berlin were Checkpoint Charlie and that cool bombed out church in the middle of downtown. This is because I was ludicrously drunk the entire time I was there.

 

Like someone said before, just wander around and find your own adventures, it's fucking Berlin man!

Stay in Kreuzberg. Go to Mauerpark in Prenzlauerberg on Sundays. You picked a shit time of year to go to Berlin but it'll still be fun.
