I would just use the hop on hop off bus. You can pick them up anywhere. They stop at the Berlin Wall, checkpoint charlie, reichstag, etc. They are double decker and are open air during the nice weather. Berlin is a very easy town to navigate. They have a great ubahn (subway) system. We spent 3 days there during the world cup this year and had a wonderful time. Make sure you go up to the top of the dome on the Reichstag. The view of Berlin is wonderful. They also have a very nice boat ride you pick up near the Brandenburg gate that goes all over downtown area. We went to Berlin early to pick up a Baltic Cruise out of Copenhagen and took the train to Hamburg and then up to Copenhagen. What a trip that was!!!!!
