    Dom is cathedral and Berlin has a French, a German and a Berlin one.

    Berliner Dom is on the museum island. From there within 1 km, you can walk to St. Hedwigs cathedral, French Dom and German Dom.

    I'd like to visit the "Museum für Fotografie" where Helmut Newton exhibits his work. Just 10 minutes walking from the Elington Hotel.

    You could buy train ticket to Potsdam, just outside of Berlin.
    There you can go to Palace Sanssouci.
    Nearby is also castle Lindstedt, Belvedere Castle on the Pfingstberg, castle Cecilienhof and the little castle.
    All within 2 miles, so you could even make a round walk in Potsdam.

    Those work! Thanks!

  12. One curiosity to look out for - some bits of the old wall are protected by a wall.

    Always amused me, that.

    Yes, of course. The week card should be good for subway, S-trains and buses.

    B seems to be enough. But if you like to go to Potsdam, get C.

    You cannot get a B ticket only – there’s tickets for AB, BC, ABC and an extension ticket for using C too.
    Zone A is the inner core of Berlin – everything that lies inside the S-Bahn-Ring (train circle) that runs around this core zone, zone B is the rest of Berlin outside the ring and C is everything beyond Berlin’s borders that lies inside the tariff zone, like Potsdam.

    About gardens: Currently the international garden fair (IGA) is being held, with its main location around the Marzahn Gardens of the World, but several other places participate too. See https://iga-berlin-2017.de. They even built a ropeway that gets you up and down the hills ;)

    The BVG site http://www.bvg.de/en features a travel planner that also calculates walking distances.

    A very special kind of park is the Spreepark, Berlin’s only stationary amusement park that was closed in 2001. Guided tours have a morbid charm. https://gruen-berlin.de/en/guided-tours-spreepark

    And I really recommend visiting the Südgelände which was a big train station but was taken over by nature decades ago. It’s beautiful and not that crowded like the Marzahn gardens: https://gruen-berlin.de/en/our-parks/natur-park-suedgelaende

    @Richard D which bit of the wall???

    The most famous one is the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_Side_Gallery where artists from all over the world painted on Berlin wall segments.
    And there are other preserved segments all over Berlin: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berlin_Wall
    For some time, you could even buy fragments after Roger Waters destroyed it – or was it David Hasselhoff ? ;) (see the entry on "Looking for freedom")
