Travelling to Berlin with friends
Berlin is a kaleidoscope of styles, subcultures, and venues, and has many sides as if it was several cities all rolled into one and all coming together, hence the kaleidoscope, and the German city that it is today attracts many young people and artists that aspire to drink from this multicultural fountain. If you’re visiting in a group then you are sure to want to enjoy Berlin to the max, and the truth is that with its exuberant nightlife there is more than enough going on to allow you to immerse yourself in the typical Berlin lifestyle…. However, why limit yourselves to wandering from club to club? Why not try out something different with your friends?
Group activities in Berlin
Are you planning on going around Berlin in a car? There’s nothing special about that, and lets be honest its probably something that you do in your home town, however, what if I told you that you could go on trips aboard the Trabant? Shall I give you another clue? The trabant is a budget car that was used by the German Democratic Republic, or East Germany, and it was one of the very few cars that people had access to. In fact, they had to put themselves on a 10 year waiting list! They stopped making this little treasure of a car in 1991, coinciding with the fall of the Berlin wall as the manufacture was unsustainable due to capitalism. However, it is now possible to go on a Trabi-safari (Trabi is the nickname of the car given by the Germans) and discover every hidden corner of the city with your friends, cruising in this legendary car that marked the lives of so many Germans, and make yourself feel a part of the most recent German history. Truly a typically Berlin experience.
Discovering Berlin in a scooter
And we continue with the motorised vehicles, because now we suggest that you discover the most authentic Berlin on a classic Vespa or Scooter. Quite often it is nice to enjoy the fresh air on the street, but if you don’t feel like walking, or cycling then this is a more attractive option. There are a couple of companies that hire out scooters, and which will hire out scooters to you and your friends so you can freely discover and roam the streets of Berlin. Alternatively, if you so choose you can opt for individual guides that will guide you through the most interesting areas in the German capital. Scooter Rent Berlin, located on 16, Rotherstr, in the Mitte district is one option, where they offer modern and comfortable scooters for standard prices. Rent a Scooter offers a very similar service, although they are a little bit less expensive. Rent a Scooter is located on 6, Bornholmerstr in the Prenzlauer Berg district.
Moving on from motorised tourist tours around Berlin, how do you fancy taking a wander around the Ramones museum? You’re probably wandering what a museum dedicated to the legendary New York band is doing in Berlin. Well, the author of this museum, the only one in the world dedicated to the legendary New York band, claims that the singer and bass player of the Ramones, Dee Dee Ramone, spent a good part of his childhood in Berlin, which led him to write songs such as “Born to die in Berlin” and “It’s a long way back to Germany”. Whatever the case, this is an excellent opportunity for lovers of punk music to admire tons of memorabilia, collected by Florian Hayler, who attended no more and no less than 101 of this legendary group’s concerts and who decided to exhibit what he had collected throughout his years as a Ramones groupie. Head down to the Ramones Museum with your friends in Berlin, and experience the most uncivilised Berlin!
