The metro line in front of the hotel is the U8, you will need a single ticket (2,60 €). Take U8 direction Osloer Strasse, get off at Voltastrasse (7 stops).

Get out of the station and take "Voltastrasse" street, check street posts since the left side of the crossroad is not the same street as the right one.

The office is an industrial complex 5 minutes walking from the crossroad, look for Voltastr. 5 where you'll see a Mozilla sign. Enter the complex and turn right. On the back of the complex, keep walking and look for "Haus 10, Treppe 6" door. The map below can help you find the office. There's a sign, so you shouldn't get lost. It's on the second floor!

Touristic Info

Hop on Hop off on public transportation Tour

You can see most of Berlin's touristics spots by using the public transportation. The most famous bus line, especially for tourists, is bus route 100 or 200, which leaves from Zoo Station ("Berlin Zoologischer Garten") or, if you want to go the other way round, Alexanderplatz. This crosses most of historic Berlin, including many of the sites listed on Wikitravel. For the price of a city bus ticket or daily pass, it's possible to see many of the landmarks of Berlin from one of these yellow double-decker buses. Sit up top as it's easier to see the Bundestag, as well as the many historic buildings on Unter den Linden. If you're lucky, you'll get the legendary bus-driver who delivers a commentary (in Berlin-accented German) on the trip. Line 200 takes nearly the same route, but it goes through the modern quarters around Kulturforum (Philharmonie, museums) and Potsdamer Platz. Either ride is a must for any visitor to Berlin.
