... of the city. We then walked past the Humboldt University and on to the large and striking Berliner Dom (grand royal church). Walking in the heat was zapping our energy levels fast, so we decided to eat at the restaurant outside the DDR Museum. A hearty lunch in the sun watching the river tour boats come and go then on into the Museum which documents life in East Germany. It was packed with lots of German students who apparently ...
... by the Nazis on Communists and Jews and used as a way to take away many of their rights. The dome and reconstruction were completed in 1999. The tour is a great one (free, but you have to have a reservation). The audio guide takes you around the circular incline inside the dome and tells you important Berlin landmarks. Very cool. Sandy and both agreed, despite our problems initially, the dome of the Reichstag was a "must see" in Berlin. A short ...
... him out on the internet, you will be surprised. Another neat painting is the painting by Pieter Brueghel, which in one painting he incorporates more than 100 Dutch proverbs, in the 1600 century. A wonderful piece to sit and study for 30 minutes. The museum provides an English cheat-cheat to find each of the proverbs displayed. This alone is well worthy a trip to Berlin. And at the end of your tour you will even find a Botticelli, a Madonna and Child.
... remembered to validate our tickets which apparently if you don't you can be fined. Our wander down Unter den Linden took us past many places of interest, the university where Einstein taught, Museums Islands and then to the Holocaust Memorial and museum. The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in the centre of Berlin is the Holocaust memorial for Germany. On 25 June 1999 the German Federal Parliament took the decision to build ...
Woke up, checked out of the hostel and then drove to Dachau, very confronting, standing in a place where so many people died. They never actually gassed anyone in Dachau, so I'm sure Auschwitz would be a lot more confronting. After Dachau, we began the lengthy drive to Berlin. Once ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel-Pension Bregenz Berlin
Perfect Place to Stay in Berlin
Fabulous place to stay. Lived in Europe for over two years and one of the best low-cost hotels I've stayed in Europe. Very close to public transport. Very nice bed. Best hotel sleep I've had in a while. Clean rooms. HuGE for European hotel standards. Excellent breakfast. Hotel owner is great to chat and will give you tips on sightseeing if asked. Sure you can spend 160 Euro on a large corperation hotel that is as nice, but why do that when you've got a nice family owned place to rest your head?
A Charming Hotel
This hotel is wonderful. It is located so close to the Kufurstendamm but on a side street that is very quiet and has a great local neighborhood feel to it. Christian, the owner helped me plan a detailed itinerary to see some of Berlin's main attractions since I did not have much time to sightsee. He also gave great restaurant recommendations. My room was spotless and the bed very comfortable. I would stay here again without hesitation.
We love this hotel
My wife and i stayed here in November for 4 nights.
We paid 75,- Euro for a very nice room. Our room was brandnew, comfortable and
very very clean. The location is excellent,direct in the city, but very quiet.
It`s a non-smoking hotel.
The owner was very helpfull and explain everthing.
(It was NO PROBLEM TO LEAVE OUR LUGGAGE for the hole day !)
Check-out time was 10 o´clock, but CHECK-IN WAS 10 - 12 o´clock !
The breakfast was plentiful, we love it.
We highly recommend the Hotel-Pension Bregenz.

Overall good value but some snags
My husband and I stayed in this hotel upon tripadvisor recommendation in October 2004. We paid about 80 Euros for our spacious double room. The room was immaculately clean, but there were some snags with the overall hotel.
Cigarette smell came in from the corridor (our room was close to the reception, breakfast room area) and someone seemed to chain smoke in the morning. The communal area always smelled of smoke. The cheapish decor of the hotel and room seemed to have been preserved from the 80s; there was even a plastic tree in our room, something what I have never seen in German hotels before.
Checkout on a Sunday morning was 10 am. Considering what nocturnal city Berlin is I found this time incomprehensible (for travellers with early night hours, this should not be a problem, but we explored the exciting night life in Berlin on Saturday night and would have liked to sleep in). Also, the management didn't let us leave our bags in the hotel after checking out because they said that no one will be at the hotel between 2 and 7 pm. We had the hassle of having to leave the luggage at Zoo station before boarding our return flight.
The hotel is in a central, if not overly touristy, location and overall I'd say that it is a decent value for money, but for my next Berlin trip I'd rather stay somewhere else with a bit more character and more comfort.
Great place to stay
My husband and I stayed at the Hotel-Pension Bregenz in September 2004. We were delighted with our room, which was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The balcony was an unexpected treat and the mini-bar in the room offered another convenience. Breakfast was plentiful with a variety of choices, including cereal, eggs, ham, cheese, yogurt, and toast. The owners speak excellent English, and are exceptionally helpful. Upon our arrival, we were given a map and suggested sightseeing tour, and we were able to purchase transit passes from them. We highly recommend this pension and will stay here again.
I stayed at this hotel for a week in September. It's located on a quiet street near Kurfurstendamm, one of the most famous Berlin avenues. The breakfast is excellent. The hotel is managed by the owners, who are very nice and helpful. Mr. Gamradt gave me a lot of valuable tips about Berlin and its tourist attractions. The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. I would strongly recommend it.
Wonderful place to stay
What a wonderful find. Great location on a tree lined street close to everything. The people who run the hotel were very warm, helpful and spoke excellent english. The rooms were so comfortable with an oversized downpillow and down comforter with a very nice size bathroom, best of all the room had a mini refrigerator. Very quiet I slept the best of any hotel I've ever stayed in. Very nice breakfast served. Everything you could possibly want in a hotel. I can't wait till my next visit. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Berlin.
Enjoyed our stay!
We stayed here for 2 nights earlier this month. The room was comfortable, included a bathroom and patio for a reasonable price. The breakfast was good with a wide selection. The owner was very nice and helpful. Also spoke great English! The location was ok, easy to reach by bus/subway/walking. Very quiet!!

Has stayed there twice ...and I'm going back there... - That says it all - right?
