Going Local Berlin
BVG app, buy your public transport tickets via this app, find your routes.
Geocaching - this activity is VERY much still a "thing." Make every walk into a treasure hunt -- hidden "caches" are literally everywhere you go. Try the free app "Geocaching," available on all phones - this allows you to know where they are, roughly. Mark as "found" on the app when you find the cache. Great for all ages (and adults).
