A Day in the South


Start your morning walk through Berlin’s southern districts by taking the S-Bahn (line S1) to Mexikoplatz. Here you can admire the beautiful villas and the lovely green square before dropping in to Café Krone in Argentinische Allee for a late breakfast. After refreshments, continue on foot or by bus (No. 211) southwards to the open-air museum Museumsdorf Düppel. From there, return by bus via Argentinische Allee to the Alliiertenmuseum. From the museum you can stroll across Königin-Luise-Straße and through the picturesque streets right up to the beer garden Luise near the Free University, where you may like to have lunch.


Start your afternoon walk at the Dahlem Museums . One you have enjoyed this cultural break, continue by U-Bahn (U3, Dahlem-Dorf) to Krumme Lanke, and from there, on foot, to the S-Bahn station Mexikoplatz. The S-Bahn will take you to Wannsee S-Bahn station, from where you can reach all the sights in southwestern Berlin. When the weather is right, visit Strandbad Wannsee, or visit the Haus der Wannsee-Konferenz and then admire the park and Schloss Klein-Glienicke . After your walk, allow yourself to be tempted by coffee and cake or supper at the Remise in Schloss Klein-Glienicke . Your best option for the return journey is the S-Bahn from Wannsee.
