Meeting Point
At the huge granite bowl in Lustgarten, the park in front of the Old Museum and the Berliner Dom

The best stations to get off at for going to Lustgarten by S-Bahn and U-Bahn are Alexander Platz (lines S5, S7, U2, U5 and U8) and Hackescher Markt (lines S5 and S7).

From Hackescher Markt, walk along the river on Burgstrasse which changes to Spreepromenade. When you get to it, turn right and across the bridge towards the Berliner Dom. You’ll soon come a square in front of the Old Museum and the Cathedral, this is the meeting point.

From Alexanderplatz, walk on Karl-Liebknecht-Straße towards Museum Island. Cross the bridge and continue towards the Berliner Dom. When you reach the Dom, turn right onto the Lustgarten.

We’ll be at the marble bowl in the middle of the square with light-blue T-shirts, name tags and umbrellas.
