I'm meeting one of my brothers and 10 year old nephew in Berlin for a few days at the end of September. The first day will be the three of us taking in the sights. The next afternoon and following day Spike, my brother, will be in a conference, and so it will just be Julien and I.
Any suggestions on what we might find entertaining, interesting, and appropriate for an energetic 10 year old boy that would be relatively inexpensive? We've already seen bike tour options and will probably do some version of that the first day with all three of us. I'm more wondering about the following afternoon and the next day after that.
Would love your thoughts, suggestions, inputs, experiences. Thanks!

The DDR museum is cool and interactive. I think it cost like 5 euros and offers a hands on glance of life under the DDR where you can interact with materials, media and the lifestyle of the DDR.
The holocaust memorial was really cool too and the children there found great fun running around it and playing hide and seek. It was surreal knowing what the memorial was erected for and the hear the giggles and see the smiling faces of the children playing.
Also, there is always the movies. In Potsdam Square there are movies in English and an Imax which might be fun and a good way to take a break from the city.
Best of luck. I loved Berlin!

WE are considering a trip in late October ourselves. Probably not to bunker dive though, mainly cuz we'll have mormor and a 3 year old.

Didn't know there was a German version of The Local. Anywho... I'm a rather inactive member of the Swedish The Local, and just for fun I tested to see if my log-in info worked for the German one, and to my surprise it did.
Might be totally irrelevant, but knowing that might be useful for some people.
