Here is some help for your transport in Berlin. Please print this document and take it with you to Berlin.

The main spot is "Anhalter Bahnhof" , your station near the event hotels. Remember, in the 19th century this has been Berlin's main station and the link to other capital cities in Europe. After many turbulences now you see only the remains of the front gate.

It's best advice to buy a 7-day-ticket for Zone AB immediately after your arrival in Berlin. It costs 25.40 € and is available at the machines at every train station. 1-day-tickets are 5.80 € each person.

Very detailed indications, thank you, Henning, but the moment I heard "stairs" I panicked. Since I am probably going to bring my entire house along (due to the weather report, which seems to have just about everything), I can't see myself rolling that anywhere. So, anybody arriving on thursday around 11 am and wanting to share a taxi?
