You should be aware that it will be cold at that time, colder than the UK is usually so take the warmest jacket you have! Try sites like [url]www.venere.com[/url] for hotels as I've found some pretty good deals on there in the past and the customer reviews are useful.

Would recommend a boat trip on the river, pretty cheap and you see lots of interesting stuff along the way. Also take a trip into the former East German end of the city as there are loads of interesting bars and restaurants, has a more 'alternative' feel to it. Must sees are the Brandenburg Gate, the Berliner Dom, East Side Gallery (part of the original wall that's been preserved), the Gedaechtnis Kirche, the Reichstag, etc. The park areas (Tiergarten) around Brandenburg are really nice for a walk too. Try this site for some background on them and others:

For the Zoo area you should look at hotels in the Tiergarten area, but the trams and trains are so good that you can easily be elsewhere and get to the Zoo easily, plus they run late into the night.

Is there a particular reason you want to stay near Zoo? It's not the most interesting part of Berlin.

Although that hotel you found is extremely cheap!

Thanks for the info guys,

Well basically was looking at that hotel as a friend stayed there before and said it was nice, close to the zoo and in a nice part of berlin, so though we would give it ago. I pritty much exspected it to be very cold if not snowy so i've already got a nice warm coat.

bjmcghee - Thats a real nice list of things and places to visit, will definitly be jotting them down as i want to see places like the berlin wall etc and that website is very helpful also. have some rep very helpful.

Admin - Like i said above friends stayed at the hotel and said it was nice and the zoo is one of the main attractions we would like to visit. seamed like a nice spot for a good price. what part of berlin would you suggest staying in? again thanks for your help also

It depends on what you're after and what age group you fit into I guess :)

The area around zoo is a mixed bag of blandish commercial buildings and west berlin shopping. The Tiergarten is close though and of course very nice.

If you are planning on going out you probably want to be in the east. The three main going out areas are Kreuzberg, Friedrichshain and Prenzlauer Berg. That's pretty much in descending order of "edginess".

The hotels and area around Alexander Platz is not particular beautiful but it is well placed between those areas and museum island so you are close to many things. It might get you a bit closer to the action than zoo which is pretty far west.

As bjmcghee said though - the transport is good so it's not a problem to go east from zoo if you wish. It will just take you an extra 15 minutes or so.

Thats great info thanks, we fit into early 20 age group and are mainly wanting to have a chilled holiday, not really to fussed about clubbing/going out, from what i was told the hard rock cafe was just round the courner from the hotel and their were some nice quiet bars.

if the local transport is regular then i guess that gives a massive oportunity to venture across berlin so thanks for the info.

one last question,

were flying with ryanair, iv heard many good and bad things about them but they seam to be the only flight operator flying to berlin that day from our air port.

has any one had experiance with ryanair? what are they like? and bagge wise, i tryed to look at booking the flights and the next screen wacks on a load of money for baggae etc? anyone had this?

Ryan Air are fine as far as a budget airline goes. Yes if you're putting luggage in the hold you'll need to pay a fee. Pay now as they'll really ding you at the airport if you haven't already bought it.

If you're an animal lover I'd recommend not visiting Berlin zoo.
Me and my friend went and there were a lot of very depressed looking big cats in tiny cages and a polar bear that had gone stir crazy.
We left feeling pretty guilty we'd paid to get in !
