Berlin travel plan for the second, third... visit

Brandenburger Tor
even if you have seen it already, it just belongs to Berlin so much that it is a "has to visit" sight
U-Bahnlinie 55 (U55) Bahnhof Brandenburger Tor Station



Nikolaiviertel, Source:
is in Berlin-Mitte on the Eastern-side of the Spree. It is one of the oldest parts of Berlin and got its name after its main sight the Nikolai-church (Nikolaikirche). This part of the city was established in the 13th century. The photo above reminds me a bit of the famous Copenhagen-scene you can see on all postcards.

- i already feel like that now that A, rather I plan my program really well based on the map and can see all of this through good time management, or B, I will not be able to visit even the half of this, cause besides the main sights I am actually much more interested on photo exhibitions and Berlin architectural sights + the Berghain

This place is full of contradiction and secrets. According to the info it has been selected as the world`s best club in 2009. An industrial building from the outside, an edgy place from the inside full of contemporary art and great interior design. Nice minimal techno and deep house + electronic music DJs. No mirrors, but 2 dark rooms, half naked men, unisex toilets, the internet full of articles about how to get in to the club. Because they have face check what I personally find a bit contradictory, but the rules are rules. One of the famous doorman who is also a great photographer told that they have face check because it is like a casting for a movie, they want to select the crew who fills the place from night to night. There might be some general rules like: if you go alone there is more chance to get in, they do not like tourist groups, gay people have more chance to get in, do not talk/be aggressive/too drunk/drugged in the line etc.

The entrance fee is 12 EUR which is quite ok, a bottle of vodka + orange juice 40 EUR. All the info comes from articles cause the place seems to be a really mystical one and there is no pics on the homepage at all nor on the internet, because it is forbidden to take any. Exciting :D.

And hmm I just read an article on the internet that because of some new intellectual property rights licensing system of the music industry (Gema) the club might be closed by the end of the year (whatt??):
