July 18 - Olympic Stadium - Berlin

Okay after the initial shock of U2 giving Finland the cold shoulder, yet again, I decided that Berlin would be the next best venue to attend. I contacted my U2 concert going buddy and she agreed that Berlin would be perfect. Keeping fingers crossed that we get GA tickets.

Anyone else thinking about going to the Berlin gig?

So hopefully after getting tickets to the Berlin show I'm planning on traveling from Finland to Berlin via Bremen and would like to travel by train. Could anyone give me an idea of how much a train ticket from Bremen to Berlin would cost? This kind of specific info is very hard to find on the internet unless you know where to look! Thanks!!

I'll try to get tickets too!

You should try to get one of those special tickets...they cost 50€ or 25€. Last week I saw a lot of them from Hamburg to Berlin. I think you should try the Hamburg-Berlin connection. ... the trains leave Hamburg every hour or so...

Deutsche Bahn - German Rail Homepage

I can't find this in english but it's on this site : www.bahn.de - Ihr Mobilittsportal fr Reisen, Bahn, Urlaub, Hotels, Stdtereisen und Mietwagen
go to 'aktuelle angebote' > 'Dauerspezial'. Then you can search for your train connection.

The reason why I'm traveling through Bremen is coz my fight from Finland, that I'm planning on taking, lands in Bremen. So thanks for the info, I'll check it out when I get back home!

Hey, Sylvia! I've been thinking about you and whether you might be going to Berlin! Waddaya say, that if we're both lucky enough to get tickets, that we should definately make plans to meet up?!

Oh, and I live next to a train station, and I go there every day, so if you have problems with finding a good connection, I could ask that for you. I mean, I waste so much time every day with just waiting there...

I've been checking the prices of the trains from Bremen to Berlin and it's looking like it might be cheaper to fly directly to Berlin! I was thinking of going by Ryanair, cheapest flight available from Finland to Germany @ under 20 euros! But if it's gonna cost me 160 euros by train to get to Berlin and back then, I'd be better off going by one of the more expensive flights and save myselft the hassle of having to catch trains!

Hey just a quick question for our German speaking friends, when the pre-sale starts and I wanna buy GA tickets, is my assumption that German for GA i.e. general admission is 'Stehplatz' or is the another term I should be looking out for?

Correct

Stehplatz ("stand place") = GA

I'm Scottish but due to Hampden being the worst stadium venue for any concert ever (it's a low stadium in a shallow bowl so the sound just echoes then leaves) , my gf and me have booked up for Berlin (it's a weekend away for £270)...hopefully the pre-sale goes well and we get GA.

The two problems being, I know absolutely no German, and I'm staying right in the centre of Berlin, is it easy to get to the stadium? I looks a pretty straight route on google maps but it's 13.3 km. What's the public transport like.
