Any recommendations for a quick run-out from Berlin to Poland? I'll be there early September. Thanks

From Berlin you can visit Wroclaw & Lower Silesia (for 2 or 3 days).
From Berlin to Wroclaw you can travel with Polski Bus (which is very inexpensive):
From Wroclaw you can take one day tours of Lower Silesia.

In Lower Silesia there are many fascinating places such as:
Ksiaz castle
Table Mountains
Churches of Peace in Jawor & Swidnica (UNESCO sites!)
Julia Crystal Glassworks in Piechowice:

Also you can easily visit Poznan or Warsaw because there is very good train connection. Here you can check the timetable:

Good luck:-)

I am a Pole and live in Szczecin, NW part of Poland in the seaside area, a capital of region called Western Pomerania. This is also good destination for a few days trip. You can find some hotels in the city center as Radisson Blu in the skyscraper named PAZIM or cosy and small Park Hotel near PAZIM. There is also a hotel on the river 'Bończa', in Szczecin-Dąbie, the eastern part of the city. Except hotels Szczecin has many interesting places of nature and culture, for instance The Pomeranian Dukes' Castle, National Museum, Summer Theater, Roses Garden and Ładoga Restaurant on the Oder River.
In the area - among others Szczecin Landscape Park, Szczecin Lagoon, Jasienica Abbey in Police, Świdwie Reserve near Police, The Old Town of Nowe Warpno, Festival of Slavs and Vikings, Regional Museum and Open Air Museum in Wolin, Międzyzdroje - a seaside resort known as 'The Pearl of the Baltic' and attractions of Świnoujście - a town situated on 44 islands, for example the lighthouse, The Eastern Fort and nature reserve Karsiborska Kępa.

There is "Solidarity" Szczecin–Goleniów Airport between Szczecin and Świnoujście, harbour in Świnoujście with ferries to Ystad in Sweden, a hydrofoil from Świnoujście through Trzebież to Szczecin and train connections e.g. from Warsaw, Gdańsk, Olsztyn, Białystok, Poznań, Cracow, Lublin, Wrocław, Łódź or German capital Berlin (Berlin Hauptbahnhof or more trains from Berlin Gesundbrunnen) or Lübeck.
You can find information about trains from or to Berlin on: (with English language version)

There are also buses to Szczecin from airports in Berlin.
Szczecin is about 2 hours from Berlin by train or by car.
Good trip!
