Sometimes at conferences you see some offer for a local, cultural activity, for example a city tour. I wonder if someone would be interested to have something like this?
I am think about one of the Berlin Underground tours during one of the hackathon days, not weekend:
* Tour M – Under the Berlin Wall, start at 10am, 2hrs
* Tour 1 – Dark Worlds, start at 5 or 7pm (good after hacking), 1.5hrs, Mon or Wed
* Tour 3 – Subways and Bunkers in the Cold War, start at 9am (Tue-Thu), 5pm (Tue-Thu) or 7pm (Wed/Thu), 1.5hrs
Especially the 7pm time seems good, so we have all the time before to code.
Starting points are close to Gesundbrunnen station, so we'd need to go a bit by public transport thereto, takes about 30min/direction.
Ticket prices vary per tour, typically 10-15 EUR. If 10 to 15 people are interested in it, I would approach the organizers and we'll see were we would end up.
So, if you like to do this, please shout and give your preference!
