The closest S-Bahn and U-Bahn stations to Lustgarten are Hackescher Markt (lines S5 and S7) and Alexander Platz (lines S5, S7, U2, U5 and U8). Both of them are within 5-10 minutes walking distance from the meeting point.
If you are coming from Hackescher Markt, once you get off the S-Bahn take Burgstrasse, which becomes Spreepromenade situated along the riverbank. Once you see the bridge on your right, cross it and walk to the Berliner Dom. Congratulations, you have arrived to Lustgarten, the square in front of the Old Museum and the Cathedral! Walk to the middle of the square and look for our guides with light-blue Hostelculture T-shirts and umbrellas at the marble bowl.
Coming from Alexanderplatz take Karl-Liebknecht-Straße, pass St. Mary's Church on the left, towards Museum Island. Cross the bridge and continue to the Berliner Dom. Once at the Dom make a right onto the Lustgarten. Our guides with light blue Hostelculture T-shirts and umbrellas are waiting for you at the marble bowl in the centre.
