Product Description

Review

"'the best guide to the city - as stylish as Time Out, but more reliable' - as road-tested by The Independent (14/09/05)" --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

Andrea is a Los Angeles-based writer, editor and translator who owes her love for languages and travel to her mother who lugged her off to foreign lands when she was still a toothless toddler. After completing high school in Germany, Andrea left for London and stints as an au-pair, market researcher and foreign language correspondent. In the mid-'80s she swapped England for Southern California and the hallowed halls of UCLA. She then hit the job market armed with a degree in English literature and charted a course in travel journalism. Assignments have taken her to all continents but Antarctica and her work has been published in several countries. Andrea joined the fleet of Lonely Planet writers in 1995 and has updated and authored guides to Los Angeles, California & Nevada, Germany and Western Europe.

Format: Paperback
This book has all the information you need, to prepare you for a wonderful vacation in Berlin. It's the kind of book that you curl up with near the fire on a cold snowy winter day and read about the trip you'll take during the summer. But--------- there are better guides for those individuals who have travelled in Europe before and who just want the nuts and bolts and will allow the city to visit them. I personally recommend either DK (Dorling Kindersley) Eyewitness Guide to Berlin or the slightly older Knopf 'City Guide' published last in 1998. However with Berlin changing so rapidly, you'll probably do better with the DK guide. It has more photos which aren't essential, but are a nice added feature but more importantly it breaks the city up in a better way to help you get the most out of your time. I think it's much better.

Format: Map
This map would probably be nice for tourists who are *only* going to see the Stadt Mitte around the Tiergarten, Checkpoint Charlie, and the other touristy stuff. However, you can probably get a map that's just as good at this stuff from your hotel for free, save the mini-German lesson that's printed on the map. If you buy the Lonely Planet Berlin handbook, which is probably a better investment, you won't need this map. If you want to see things that aren't the everyday touristy stuff, you need a bigger map. Get one with Postdam on it and buy it when you get to Berlin. You'll save cash and the frustration of having a map that makes Berlin look like a Dorf (small village).

Maps are useless (Kindle version) May 17 2011
By Jason Huang - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The body text links you to a map, but the maps only have numbers on them without any legend telling you what each number represents. How are we supposed to know where to find the described venues?

The iBookstore version is much easier to use, especially with maps.

Lonely Planet on Berlin is a gem of a guide April 30 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We used this guide for two weeks in Berlin, then passed it on to relatives who were staying on there. It is as well organized,easy to use and worthwhile as a guide could be. Virtually every
restaurant recommendation we took from it turned out be superb. In one case, Cafe Jacques, we were asked by the restaurant waitstaff and other diners how we found this excellent, but
somewhat hidden Kreuzberg neighborhood eatery. The book made everything easy to find and quick to get to. I would give it five stars.
