Book Description

Jan. 24 2012 Rick Steves Snapshot
You can count on Rick Steves to tell you what you really need to know when traveling in Berlin.

In this 132-page compact guide, Rick Steves covers the best of Berlin, including tips on arrival, orientation, and transportation. Visit the Jewish Museum, the Reichstag Parliament Building, the New Synagogue, or the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church-you'll get tips on all the best tours and least-crowded visiting hours. Rick offers his firsthand advice on the best sights, eating, sleeping, and nightlife, and the maps and self-guided tours will ensure you make the most of your experience.More than just reviews and directions, a Rick Steves Snapshot guide is a tour guide in your pocket.

Rick Steves' Snapshot guides consist of excerpted chapters from Rick Steves' European country guidebooks. Snapshot guides are a great choice for travelers visiting a specific city or region, rather than multiple European destinations. These slim guides offer all of Rick's up-to-date advice on what sights are worth your time and money. They include good-value hotel and restaurant recommendations, with no introductory information (such as overall trip planning, when to go, and travel practicalities).

This was a great little guide book for taking along with you while travelling to Berlin. We were in Berlin for three days, and this book covered all of the things we wanted to see. Good maps t help find your way around.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book But....... Oct. 21 2013
By 205
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Just spent a week in Berlin with my wife. We like Rick Steves and tend to use his products when travelling, and as we pack light we take one guidebook.

When in Berlin we realized that this guidebook is suitable for a 3 or 4 day visit but is not detailed enough for a one week stay. All the major sights and areas are covered, but when you get into the more minor tourist areas as you do during a week vacation this book was a little light on details.

We also spent a week in Amsterdam this trip and used Rick Steves Amsterdam book and it was great for a week.

So if you spend a week in Berlin would supplement this book with another complementary guidebook with more details about the minor sights.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Totally Berlin Sept. 4 2011
By Mister Mash - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
By nature these books are almost outdated as soon as they are published. For example, Steves' book still refers to Knute as the main attraction of the Berlin Zoo while Knute died over 6 months ago. But that is to be expected. What was not expected was that this book is "filled out" with guides on Dresden and Gorlitz. They are not just around the corner from Berlin, like Potsdam, and there is no reason to expect a Berlin visitor to go to either town. With a city as large as Berlin and as much to see, seems these pages could have been better used for more details on the items that are described, or on additional Berlin attractions.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor guidebook March 20 2012
By W.P.M. - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this for a 6 day visit to Berlin; it was not helpful. The maps are impressionistic overviews of areas, not real maps. There is no index. The organization defies logic. You can do better.

2.0 out of 5 stars The first real, major disappointment from Rick Steves April 8 2012
By Sasha - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm not going to complain about Rick's uber-tame "nightlife" choices for a city as cutting edge and happening as Berlin - I didn't expect him to include the latest minimal techno clubs in his listings. But what I also didn't expect after several great experiences with Rick's guides is just how inadequate this Berlin one is. As another reviewer noted, instead of wasting pages on Dresden, which has nothing to do with Berlin, this guide could have and should have been at least a couple times bigger covering just Berlin alone. So much is left out, so much that I've seen online, in other guides, told by friends, etc., that this guide is basically good enough for a three or four-day trip to the city, but already totally not good enough for anything approaching a week. That's not good for a dedicated city guide. It's between 3 and 4 stars for an up to 3-day stay in Berlin; one star for anything longer.

As usual, its strengths are Rick's city walks and some insightful writing passages, but the list of missing places is too long for those positives to overcome.

Downloaded this handy guide to my kindle before visiting Berlin. As always, Rick Steves has helpful information and if you download to your laptop hooked to the net, it has links for the various museums, tours and information needed to plan a great trip. Gotta love the internet and technology!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good quick guide Sept. 9 2012
By Tom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was going to Berlin on business and only had about 1/2 a day to 'see the sights.' I downloaded this book onto my iPad and read it on the plane. It gave me a good lay of the land, and helped me focus on the key sights I wanted to see, and could realistically get to in less than a day. I ended up hitting the Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie, the Berlin Wall (pieces)as well as Fredrickstrasse. The book was well worth the price and helped me get to the sights I wanted to see with my limited amount of time.
