Can someone please help me understand the grammar in this sentence "ich warte auf dich in berlin vor dem neuen museum". with the time, manner and place rule both "in berlin" and "vor dem neuen hotel" are places so how do you choose which one goes in which word position?

Hi Jutsocli, you are right, here there are only two place complements (no manner nor time). In this case generally the most general place goes before the more specific one, which is why here we'd rather put "in Berlin" before "vor dem neuen Hotel". Hope it helps :)
