Your Berlin City questions, answered

Make for the currywurst, burger and wiener stands in the street food markets of Mauerpark and Markthalle Neun and you won't be disappointed.

The U-Bahn subway and above-ground S-Bahn will get you everywhere you need to go. There's also a tram, bus and plenty of bike rentals.
