We were very happy with our 3 day Berlin Pass. Instruction to go to Hard Rock Cafe to validate voucher then Humbolt Box to collect pass are incorrect. Go straight to Humbolt Box near the Dom and Museum Island, they will have everything there for you. It would have been beneficial to have the booklet before we arrived so we could plan our Pass time efficiently. Bus tour is a great to get a feel of the city and the boat cruise very relaxing and informative too. Unlimited public transport each day was great especially when we were catching buses going in the wrong direction haha. Berlin has so much modern history, the transformation since WW2 is amazing. It is a progressive, vibrant city well worth visiting. I thoroughly recommend a bike ride in Teirgarten as well.
The pass is a great way to get the most out of Berlin and we probably did things that we otherwise would have not bothered with. We stayed very close to Museum Island and the entrance fee to all of the museums, as well as the cathedral, are on the pass so over the weekend we managed to have a good look around all of them. These are some of the best museums that I have ever seen with amazing artifacts.
On a rainy day we jumped on the hop on and off bus and did the whole circuit taking in what we may have missed and a walking tour is also a must.
II know that we got our moneys worth and probably didn't make the most out of the transport tickets, but I am so glad that we had it and will check viator for any passes when I travel in the future.
Berlin is an amazing city and we wouldn't have got as much out of it if we hadn't bought the passes.
great pass to use especially for unlimited use of public transport like the U-bahn, the S-bahn, and the bus. really helpful when visiting museums and even a the River Spree ride.
Having the berlin pass made it so easy to get around Berlin. And we did tours and saw attractions that we did not even no about.
Although the pass is very good value it is quite a performance to collect firstly the pass on one side of Berlin and then the tickets for the bus on the other side, fortunately we had good weather but if it had been raining it would have been a nightmare. It would be good to pick up your bus passes with your Berlin pass. We certainly had good use of the tickets and the transport system.
With free public transport, museums and the included walking, bike and sightseeing tours, the Berlin Pass was really helpful for exploring the city! We especially liked the big choice of museums – don’t miss Museum’s Island!
I’d say that all the essentials of Berlin are on this card, from the public transport to the excellent range of museums and galleries – make sure you go on one of the included walking tours!
Very good for getting around Berlin and also getting into the museums and Catherdrals
Very useful card to have used it for some of the museums. Did the boat trip and the hop on hop off bus tour. Was so easy to have transport cards for three days, saved having to buy tickets at the station every day.
Great Value for Money! Plenty of things to do with the card that's provided, saw a significant savings and made it much easier not to have to spend on door entries.
Was great, would help to let us know all museums are closed on Mondays in berlin
Hop on hop off bus was not worth the effort. Other attractions were okay but probably didn't get the full value of the pass.
The Berlin pass was helpful, having a Museum pass and travel passes included for each day made it good value we thought.
Would definitely recommend the Berlin Pass. Bus trip was good but commentary was live so a little difficult to follow. Boat trip excellent. We got more than our money's worth of museum entry, although a couple of places no longer offer free entry (Checkpoint Charlie museum, museum of musical instruments) and the big plus was you didn't need to join the long queues outside the museums on museum island as you don't need a ticket - just show your pass! The public transport system can be complicated so having a day pass (don't forget to validate it the first time you use it) took the stress out of buying tickets. Will definitely get a pass (if available) for the next city we visit.
Just about value for money but that was more our fault as we didnt use the transport tickets enough . Most of the museums we wanted to visit was free so didnt use the museum tickets. The tour bus the first day was very good and informative and it gave us an idea what we wanted to visit. Lovely city and enjoyed it.
This was a great deal. I went 4 museums and did the Walks in English tour of the Third Reich. Only the Neues Museum required an additional 4 euros than stated. This seemed to be a new change.
Excellent value, much used. Only fault is that it cannot be picked up at the airports. Also the pick up location was far from our hotel,(Alexanderplatz) and difficult to find.
The Berlin Pass was very good. You needed to be able to find some locations on your own - such as the office to pick up the pass; the boarding place for the hop-on-hop-off; and which river cruise. So it worked for us, but don't think it would be as good for inexperienced travelers.
this pass guantees a fast pace and chance to see a lot quickly
the pick-up place hard rock shop the person hard to understand,the music too loud to hear him and the info he gives is minimally useful
WORTH THE $ BUT NEEDS TO BE SIMPLER, AFTER LOOSING THE MUSEUM PASS I THINK THAT IT SHOULD ALL BE ON ONE CARD! JUST SAYING BUT STILL GOT MORE OUT OF THE THE CARD THEN WOULD HAVE
Location of bus tour and boat cruise not at places indicated in bookletqq
The tour was good. The guides on the bus were excellent. To collect the pass from Hard Rock restaurant is not a good arrangement. We had to hire a taxi paying a lot of money to reach this place. The people at Hard Rock even had no information about the bus and not even from where it starts. At the start of the tour, the pass needs to be validated and one has to go to specific stop for this. But the driver was kind to take us to the stop No.13 from stop No.1 for this. It neeeds better organization
Pass was good value and we got good usage. Brichure on where you could use the pass was very useful. Biggest complaint - the commentary was multi-lingual., However, this was done by the guide describing in German first and then re-doing it in other languages. Often the feature may have gone past by the time they did the English version. Also, once the German version was complete, some of the German tourist started chatting about it which meant we couldn't hear the English version. Maybe use the Brussels version where commentary was broadcast in multiple languages at once using headphones.
