Extremely rude gentleman checked us in. No air conditioning in main cabin. Dirty windows so it’s impossible to take photos. “b” line has almost nothing interesting to see... “a” line was fine. Lots of stops (a bit too many).

If you refer to the main station as Berlin Hauptbahnhof the bus stops just outside the entrance of the station if you head towards the river spree. Left hand side stop. Should see some City sightseeing bus staff.
