It is fantastic to have the travel card and to just get on and off public transport without worrying about buying a ticket first. You just carry the ticket with you at all times. Although we never had to show it peace of mind knowing you have it and didn’t get on a train and forget to get a ticket as transport system in Berlin is so efficient.

We always use the Berlin card for travel and discount, used to get discount for admission to the zoo but not anymore this was a disappointment but we still visited the zoo anyway. And the travel system around Berlin is amazing and well worth every penny.

This was already my second Berlin Welcome Card this year. Used with even more pleasure and this time also pay more attention to which discount with which partners. Carefree travel throughout Berlin. Highly recommended.

Having the card did greatly help to get around without worrying about paying for tickets .. very convenient

Great if you will be in Berlin for a few days. The public transport is super easy to use.
