I'll be travelling alone to the concert and back - could get a taxi back once into central Berlin.

If anyone knows of any good apartment companies that would be handy too, thanks!
I was in Berlin in September going to the Berlin Festival to see The Killers, and it surprised me how easy it was getting around THE WHOLE city by public transport!

Therefore, don't be afraid of it might being a bit tricky getting around only by train. I highly recommend you to buy a 2-day-ticket or whatever they're called on one of the stations, so you can use the U-bahn and S-bahn system ... it's working spot on!

Don't use taxi ... it's a city with a lot of traffic and it'll just rip you off considered to the train-system.

I don't know anything about hotels or companies. A friend of mine has an apartment in Charlottenburg, 10 min. from the venue But still, the venue is in West-Berlin, just don't be afraid of booking a room in the area a bit out of Berlin ... the trains cover them all!

See this: http://www.bvg.de/index.php/en/17103...derground.html for more information about them, and if you see in the right it says More Information and Downloads, then save the "Network of S- and U-bahn" ... great and useful map!

Has anyone ordered from Hekticket? They charge only 6.90 € for international shipping, but do you think it's trustworthy?

Thanks for the info not decided on area we will stay in yet, but the train routes and transport look great. Will def be booking an apartment I think as I'm vegan and friends vegetarian and just diagnosed coeliac so will need to be careful with eating out.

So looking forward to this holiday/concert

Yep delivery is amazingly speedy - but it should be, at that price!

Wow £79 flight is incredible price - who did you book with? ...jammy you, going 6 days wish I could *sigh*

Going with Lufthansa from Birmingham which is a 40 minute drive from my house. Saw the £79!flights and unlike the budget airlines they include 23kg checked in luggage which is great. Seen parking for £23 there or got family 10 mins drive from the airport with parking if needed.

This is my summer holiday and also its mine and my friends I'm going with 40th birthday next year so we said we'd go abroad. Just a shame my friend does not like Muse!

I haven't ordered from them, but I know they are a quite popular local ticket agency and have several shops in berlin, so they should be trustworthy.

Heading over for 2 nights from Dublin, as that is where I will be holidaying at the time.
I'm only flying one-way and then making me way to the Netherlands afterwards, the cheapest one way flight is 89 Euro so far, is that cheap or should I wait for a better deal?

Can anyone tell me how the "seating" allocation for this show works? Obviously everyone will have General Admission. Is it simply "first come, first served" for the floor area? Once on the floor, can I leave and return? I'm flying from Australia and have never been to this venue. I don't want to get stuck in the stands...

A fellow Aussie here who's going to this show!

I'm pretty sure it's just general admission, so it's first come first served for the standing area at the front. I'm not sure if you can come and go from the standing area though, it looks quite small compared to the seating areas and they might have a limit on how many people can be in standing area.
Any Germans here who have been to this venue before?
