The WelcomeCard with Museum Island Pass is great value as it lets one use Berlin's public transport system, without the hassle of having to figure out which fare to buy and then validate your tickets before each trip, which means one can focus on taking in the sights and experiences of the city.
We simply collected our WelcomeCard at the Tourist Info counter at the airport and use it immediately on the TXL express bus that brings you into the city.(the counter is conveniently located right where you exit to take the bus)
The optional Museum Island Pass also grants daily entry to the fantastic museums for 3 consecutive days (not 72h!) and trust me there is a whole lot to take in. History and anthropology buffs should definitely consider getting this Pass as the cost of single adult tickets to all these separate museums would be significantly more.
good price and savings to book berlin welcome card on klook. just a slight hassle must print out voucher instead of showing QR code. collected welcome card at Alexanderplatz Tourist Centre inside hotel, no queue, in 1 minute. Recommend for going to museum & palace as selective sites give good discount at entrance fees.
Very easy to redeem (I did it at the Berlin Central Station Tourist Info Centre) but must remember to print the voucher as physical voucher is required during redemption. Redemption is smooth and the service consultant there even reminded us to do a validation of the tickets at the platform before boarding and we only need to validate once (do rem if double validations will void the ticket). I can say that this is a good deal as we used the card to travel around Berlin in all modes of transport (S-bahn, U-bahn and all rails within ABC zones) conveniently and even travel to the Designer Outlet Berlin for a great shopping!
Strongly recommended to purchase if you are there for a few days as you save the hassle of buying tickets at various stops for various modes of public transportation. Just need to exchange for the card using the voucher and validate once then you can just board any train, bus and tram without worrying about the tickets.
I picked up my Berlin Welcome Card from Berlin Tegal airport. The staff at the counter were friendly and they exchanged my printed voucher with the booklet and ticket.
Once validated, I could use the pass for all the transport system in Berlin which was really convenient. Recommended if you’re going to be frequently using the public transport.
Forget about buying a ticket every time you wish to use the bus,tram or train as this pass allows you to take any of your choice. Very easy to use just validate it in the yellow machine on first use and your good to go until expiry (and yes there are inspectors on the trains). The pass even gives you discounts at most attractions and restaurants.
