Take a taxi or public bus to the foothill of the High Castle, and then walk to the very top. It will be great exercise and a really nice sightseeing experience that not enough people take the time to do.

You can walk around the city quite easily, but if you decide to use other transportation keep in mind these two tips: Have money ready when you get on the bus. You need to purchase a ticket and validate the ticket after boarding the bus. There are little machines on the bus which you use to manually punch your ticket. A ticket inspector may board the bus at any point on the route and ask to check your ticket. And if you decide to take a taxi, negotiate the price beforehand. You can also just rent a bike as it's probably the 2nd best option after walking.

On Sunday, you can play chess with elderly people who normally gather in front of the Opera House. It's super fun and relaxed experience.
