For the German Slap community or others familiar with the area,

Dieses Freitag fliege ich nach Berlin weil, ich ein 'Goethe Institute Deutsch Sprechen Klasse' nehmen muss. Ich denke dass, ich in der Nahe von 'Viktoria Park' wohne und ich werde dort von Marz 1st bis April 1st sein (entschuldigen fur mein Deutsch, ich kann nur ein bisschen sprechen).

know any spots, parks, or skateshops? I realized checking my board on an international flight would be $100 so I'm just going to pack my trucks and get a board there.

good ledges at "warschauer strasse", well known spot at "wassertorplatz". check "search and destroy" skatehshop in kreuzberg. skatepark at hasenheide and  a good indoor park at warschauer strasse as well. besides that you can skate at certain times at the "baustelle" ask locals what time they suggest. many small spots all over the city, there is a spotmap somewhere on the internet that works pretty well, but somehow i cannot find it at the moment. get wasted at the "franken" or if you wanna dance with some models go to the "cookies" or the "berghain", good luck with the door policy.

edit: found the spot map

Get a bicycle. Skating from point A to point B is near impossible.

+1 on getting a bike.  Best way to get around and understand the city.

Flying into Berlin for a few days - maybe more? - on April 28th. Meeting up with some NYC homies so we're definitely trying to rage it in a good way - lots of skating and lots of brews. I've got a few friends over there but if there are any Pals who are keen to meet up and skate, grab beers, or just in general show us around that would be rad!

On the corner of Weibestrasse and Kaiserin-Augusta Allee is a little park/playground with these wavy bumps that has to be one the funnest spots I've ever skated in my life. To be specific, I believe its in Charlottenburg and you'll want to get off the U-Bahn at Meirendorffplatz. It's a bit of walk/skate, but well worth it.

Billy skates it at 3:00

Whats up with some bros from the Bavarian/Nurnberg area of Germany? Lets meet up and skate this summer! Maybe Spittler or Furth Park?

no need to check it, I always take mine w/ extra decks as a carry-on and just stick it in the overhead bin. Never had a problem on international or domestic flights

I'm going to Berlin for the first time on the 1st of September. I'm travelling with a friend and we're staying 3 nights before going on our annual Copenhagen trip. What I'm hoping for is a suggestion regarding which area/s would be most convenient or central for first time visitors like ourselves. We're not expecting to skate that much as we will do a lot of that in Copenhagen so looking for a slice of Berlin culture and a brief intro to the city.

Try to stick with Friedrichshain, Kreuzberg and Neuk?lln for partying. When your at the B?nkespot it shouldn't be to hard to find you way around. Just ask the non-tourist skaters over there. Prenzlauer Berg is nice as well (my girlfriend lives there 8)).

When exactly will you be in CPH? That's where I live. I will be in NYC in late August, but might be back in time to met a up with some PALS.

You are lucky with the weather. I have to study and to work, but will be available on Saturday. You might be hungover by then, but if you want we can meet up and skate.
Do you know in which part of the city you will stay?

 I am visiting Berlin with girlfriend in mid June, for a week.

I am definetely visiting Tempelhof skate plaza and gleisdreieck bumps. Is there any other spot - park worth visiting?

Is it easy to transport through the city with a bike (girlfriend) - Skateboard (me) combo?

Do u have anything skate or non skate thing to recommend to a visitor, apart from the obvious tourist things?

Anybody down for a skate meet up on the 11th of this month. I live in Leipzig and I want to lurk Berlin for a couple of days of skating and maybe do a bit of filming (VX-1000). I think I'm going to bring my bike, as taking the bus and renting a bike would be the same as just taking reg-bahn. This is, if the weather is chill. If anyone is keen, hit me back.

In Berlin now, down to skate prettymuch anything. I've been wondering around the spots but some homies to crack few brews with woldn't hurt. Anytime anywhere. Leaving the 14th day.

might be heading out to Germany towards the end of the year. How's the weather in August/October? Worth bringing a board?
