Dress in a way that makes you comfortable, and keep in mind what types of activities you want to do. Bring something appropriate for a club if you want to check out the nightlife, or pack a few nicer outfits if you want to explore the more posh side of town.
If you want to walk around in 4 inch heels, just be aware of the cobblestones. You could probably walk around in fuzzy bunny slippers and no one would blink.
There really isn’t anything out of the ordinary here. Pack your normal toiletries and you should be fine. If you need something while you’re there, you can find it at almost any drug or grocery store.
– Jewelry – nothing expensive – A fun scarf – Sunglasses – just in case you get lucky and visit on a sunny day – Umbrella – because really, it’s much more likely to rain – Day pack or purse
– Camera – Smartphone – E-reader – European plug adapter – Chargers, cords, and batteries
I also suggest downloading the VBB app on your phone (free and works in English) or use the BVG website to can easily check transport routes. If you don’t have a data plan that works in Germany, plan your route while you’re on WiFi.
