I wouldn't buy Lonely Planet again for a short trip
am 5. September 2009
I bought this guide for a 3-day excursion to Berlin. I have been using DK guides so far, but the reputation of Lonely Planet made me trust this one for the specific trip. Unfortunately, it helped us only minimally, and we ended up advising with it only sporadically. The main problem was the huge amount of information; if you'd spend 2 weeks there, it might be useful. But not for 3 days. Additionally, I found that the information was not organized in a way that would help the reader find easily what they need. I'm not sure what would be the best way to do that, I can only say that, again, I found DK guides to be much better in that regard. Finally, I'm not too sure about the quality of information included in this specific guide. I trusted it for a restaurant and turned out to be a very bad choice (food-wise). And, I was looking for the famous Kaiser William memorial church, which I had heard about before, and couldn't find any reference to it whatsoever -- this is a major monument of Berlin.
Two stars only for the amount of information contained.
