Comprehensive guide to Berlin Germany with information on Internet.


Internet Cafes

Berlin's numerous internet cafes make it relatively easy to stay on-line in the city. With the advent of free, web-based e-mail, internet cafes offer a chance for people who are in Berlin only briefly or who do not have a connection to the net from home to keep communicating on-line. Many of these internet cafes in fact offer a variety of services including laser printing, courses about the internet, multi-player on-line games.

With two floors and 350 computers, this is the Disneyland of internet cafes. Easy everything is easily the best deal in town. For only 2 you get 40 minutes of high speed internet access. This café is very large and bright with a modern look to it. Coffee, muffins, and other foods are served along with 1 litre bottles of cola dispensed from machines for 4 . Its close proximity to Zoo Garten and its low prices attract a largely teenage and tourist crowd who congregate on the first floor and tend to become boisterous at times. Stick to the ground level, sip an espresso, and enjoy.
