If your trip to Berlin is in March or November, there’s always a chance it could end up snowing. Early spring and late fall can often feel like winter, especially if you’re used to warmer climates.
Just be yourself. This isn’t one of the European cities where you’ll be shunned for wearing sneakers. I wear sneakers everyday. If you want to walk around in 4 inch heels, just be aware of the cobblestones.
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.
