The motorist-cyclist relationship in Berlin is rather hostile in comparison to other German cities. But it is a cyclist's heaven in contrast to the English speaking world! Wide streets, reserved (and respected) bike lanes, motorists who are more likely to wave you through a crossing than try to squash you against the side of truck.So get hold of a bi-cycle somehow or other.

Berlin's integrated public transport system (known as the BVG) is the next best way to get about, if you have not managed a bike. One ticket allows travel on all trains, trams, busses and ferries run by the public transport authority (BVG).
Usually it's not too hard to find a taxi in Berlin's inner districts. The cabs are painted beige and have a characteristic taxi sign on the roof. You can hail one on the street, hop into any car at a rank, or phone one of the companies listed below to place an order.
