Leave your bags at the Amstel House and up to the city! If you are hungry make a pit stop at the charming old Arminius Markthalle where you find all kinds of cousins in good quality and fair price.

With the metro head south. In only 2 station you land at Zoologischer Garten, former West Berlin center. Take a walk around the square and get to know the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church. The damages the church suffered during the WWII were kept to remember the destruction caused by wars. Today the landmark is one of Berlin’s most visited.

From there another 3 station with the metro you get to the stunning Schlosspark Charlottenburg, Berlin’s biggest palace in baroque and rococo style. Its beautiful garden is a city’s must see.

Back to the hostel: check in, get change, have as many Burgers as you can and a beer for 7,50 € at our all-you-can-eat Burger BBQ and go for some good drinks at our neighbor bar Kowski.
