I arrived in Berlin and straight away arrived at a place recommended by a friend in a Wagonplatz (area for van living). These areas are really good because other van users look out for each other, they can live their full time or part time but normally someone is around to say hello to. Also, these areas are free to park which is good. The only downfall I had was it was on the road and I’m a light sleeper so I sometimes work up in the middle of the night.
Few things to note regarding parking in Berlin.
1. Remember to park in the direction of travel, above you can see my van parked the WRONG way and this can result in a 15 Euro fine.
Each city specifies which sticker is required to drive in its environmental zone with an extra sign below the traffic sign.
Berlin requires the green sticker, which stands for the emission group with the lowest level of pollutants.
