I love Berlin. You'll have plenty to do in 10 days, day trips out as well. Probably less accessible for wheelchair than you'd expect (from what I remember using buggy, apologies for comparison) but definitely fine. We went both in winter and spring, one of our favourite places.
Book a tour of the Reichstag, but do it early, they fill up very quickly. It's free and absolutely fascinating especially for a historian. We also loved exploring the Berlin Wall memorial and the Topogrophy of Terrors was harrowing but unmissable. On a windy day it's fun to go to the old Berlin Airport to fly kites, it is a genuinely vast and iconic building. Have a wonderful time
It will be very, very hot, or it was last july anyway. We went swimming in various lakes outside of town, all accessible by public transport, but i wasn't looking for if it was wheelchair accessible - i think the u-bahn was flat to get onto from the platform, i presume there were lifts down to the platform, but i didn't notice them.
I'll be back to tell, you where we swam when i remember!
It's called Berlin Subway, and is by mxdata, who also do a tube map and a paris metro one.
It is really useful as you can route plan on it, even if you're not online, and the updates i got last summer seemed to update availability of different lines which then affected which route we were sent on iyswim.
