2 - 4 Days
If you are planning on spending 2 to 4 days in Berlin, refer to the itinerary below.
On Day 1, it is perfectly fine if you want to swap out Unter den Linden, Alexanderplatz, and Fernsehturm for some day 2 activities. Moreover, I’d highly recommend you purchase a hop-on / hop-off bus tour pass. This is because Berlin is HUGE and the attractions are located at a distance. A hop-on / hop-off bus tour will save you a lot of trouble in your commute!
If you only have 1 day in Berlin, use the separate 1 Day itinerary here.
