Berlin in 2 days with kids

We spent a week in Berlin, Germany with our 6, 4, and 1 year old.  You can watch our week here and here. However, if I were to compress our time into a 2 day trip this would be my tips for the area.

Strollers

Berlin is an easy city to use a stroller in. The streets have wide sidewalks that are evenly paved. The metro is like most of Europe where there are some lifts and some stairs. The more popular areas tend to be more handicap friendly. The buses and metro are inexpensive and easy to use.

 

Day 1

 

Itinerary

Jewish Memorial Museum and Berlin Zoo

Jewish Memorial

 

What is it: It is one of the largest Jewish Museums in Europe. The architecture is unique and rich in symbolism.  It is one of the most enjoyable museums we have been to with our kids on this trip –  honestly. We really enjoyed our time here. It is history mixed with interactive and visual displays for the kids.  The Holocaust is a tough subject to address with kids but this museum did a wonderful job of educating.

WWII monument

Brandenburg Gate

 

What is it: These are all the most iconic land marks of Berlin and they are conveniently located just around the corner from Lego Land! You can walk right by the remains of the Berlin wall on your way yo the WWII monument across the street. Down the street is the beautiful Brandenburg Gate that is situated right next to Berlin’s beautiful Tiergarten park. It is perfect to see the city sites then let the littles run free in the beautiful park for a couple hours.
