Looking to fill 6 hours in Berlin

This week I'll be flying through Berlin, arriving at Tegel and departing from Schonefeld. I get in just before 10am and fly out at 6pm. I'll be somewhat mobile but will be carrying enough that, eg, walking several miles through an architecturally interesting neighborhood, for example, which I would normally love, would be a no-go. Looking mostly for recommendations for where to get some good food and kill time pleasantly. [more inside]

Where to stay and what to do in Munich

I'm in Munich for three days this summer (around the last of week of June) and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for hostels? I'd prefer a social atmosphere but nothing too party-oriented. Also, what are some must-see and must-do things for a short visit to Munich?

What to do in and around Göttingen, Germany?

A friend and I are headed to Göttingen, Germany, for part of the Handel Festival. We'll have some time to kill during the days (May 21-24) before the evening concerts. Can you recommend some daytime activities in Göttingen or within a short radius by train? We'd especially like to find a good place to go hiking and watch birds, but other suggestions are welcome.

Where should I spend 3 nights before flying out of Berlin?

I've got 2 nights in Berlin, then 2 nights in Hamburg, then 3 nights unbooked before I fly back out of Berlin - where should I spend them? This is around the start of May. I like cities, interesting places, staying in hostels, don't have a huge amount of money. (I've not been to Berlin before and it's possible the answer is "more Berlin").

Are there any activities, sights, events occurring during this time that we shouldn't miss? Oh, and where should we eat? [more inside]

You want to get culturally & conversationally fluent! [more inside]
