Once you understand the system, the day is very entertaining, you learn a lot about the city. After that you can feel a bit "insider". If you deal with all stations in detail and stop here and there in between (for a Kölsch), then you can easily spend the whole day on the go.

It was great fun. However, you should avoid the weekends at the beginning of mid-November, as the Christmas market is being set up at the important stations and you may need help from the construction staff. You are not allowed to enter the places. It is also recommended to take a Sunday morning. The streets are quite empty and in the pedestrian zone you don't constantly run into other passers-by. During the week it's certainly good too.
