    Hi Ali, your Berlin post is great! We are planning a 1 week trip and will be in Berlin over Easter. Will most attractions, restaurants be closed? Any special things to do or see on that day?
    If most things will be closed, we are considering driving to either Munich or Prague for a few days of our trip. Thoughts?
    Thank you for your help and guidance! Susie

      Thanks Susie, I’m so glad the site is helping! Most things will still be open for Easter. Retail and grocery stores will be closed on Good Friday, Easter Sunday, and Easter Monday, but that will be the same in Munich and Prague. But if you’re planning on going to museums, most will still be open as usual, and remember that many museums (but not all) are typically closed on Mondays anyway. I just looked at Museum Island and Topography of Terror, and both are open. Even the free Reichstag tour doesn’t list Easter holidays in their “closed” days, which surprised me.

      Lots of restaurants will be open, though some won’t be. I’d suggest booking a table ahead of time for Easter Sunday. I looked at Schnitzelei and a couple other German restaurants on my list here, and their reservation system was going to let me book a table for Easter Sunday.

      I think being here over Easter weekend just means a little extra planning and research for the activities you want to do, and if any are closed, try to go Saturday or before/after the weekend. Yes, it’s a holiday, but I think most of the annoyances are for those of us who live here and have to hyper plan our grocery shopping around so many closed days! Let me know if I can help with anything else!

      Hi Dilip, check out my itinerary for Berlin plus Munich here. I don’t have a ton of experience with the Black Forest, but check out my friend’s article here.
