Be sure you know which airport and you arrive and depart from• Many European cities have a single main airport and then another airport or two for smaller flights.• Berlin is not one of these cities.• Berlin has two major airports: Tegel and Schönefeld.• There are accessible public transportation options for both airports although Schönefeld requires a long walk. www.sagetraveling.com
  6. 6. Be sure you know which train station you arrive and depart from• The previously divided Berlin not only resulted in multiple airports, but it also resulted in multiple large train stations.• Your train will likely pull into one of 3 stations: Zoologischer Gardens station in West Berlin, Ostbahnhof station in East Berlin, or Hauptbahnhof in the center of Berlin.• All of the Berlin train stations have wheelchair lifts. Some trains stop at two of the three stations.• When you buy your train ticket, confirm which train stations you will be stopping at and get off at the one closest to your hotel. www.sagetraveling.com
  7. 7. Visit Museum Island attractions together• Museum Island in Berlin has multiple museums in close proximity to each other which makes it easy for Berlin wheelchair travelers to visit them in a single day.• The Pergamon Museum, the Neues Museum, and the German History Museum (located just across the Spree River) are all top-notch museums and each deserves a minimum of 2 hours. www.sagetraveling.com
  8. 8. Accessible souvenir shops near Spree River• Between the German History Museum and the Spree River, you will find numerous souvenir carts that are very easy to visit in a wheelchair.• You won’t have to go up a step to get into a building, so this is a good area to do your souvenir shopping. www.sagetraveling.com
  9. 9. Group Checkpoint Charlie attractions together• Several wheelchair accessible Berlin tourist attractions are within walking distance of Checkpoint Charlie.• They include Checkpoint Charlie which is located in the middle of the street, the Museum at Checkpoint Charlie, the Jewish Museum Berlin, and the Topography of Terror exhibit (remains of the SS building and the Berlin Wall). www.sagetraveling.com
