Germany's capital is a city of contrasts; divided until 1989, it is a sizeable city but with a relatively low population of 3 million it never feels overly crowded and is incredibly easy to navigate. Famed for its energy and creative spirit since 1989 Berlin has long attracted those in the arts due in part to its low rents and thus a proliferation of galleries, boutiques, and exciting music and nightlife abounds. Of course it would be remiss to talk about Berlin without mentioning the history of its past which confronts you at every turn; Nazi headquarters, bombed and divide in two - all this occurred only in the 20th century and a visit to the room where the holocaust was planned or to see Checkpoint Charlie bring it home in stark clarity. Your trip includes a private half day tour which will bring the city to life. Berlin is a relaxed and easy-going city with an international village feel to it with a thriving cafe culture and an emphasis on personal freedom; made all the more poignant by the past. Head to Germany’s vibrant capital Berlin for an unbeatable combination of cutting edge architecture, history and lively nightlife and café culture.

  • Visit the Reichstag; home to the German Bundestag (parliament); designed by Sir Norman Foster this has survived the division of the city, Nazis, war, fire and bombing
  • Your hotel gives you prime position for greater exploration of Tiergarten; the city’s most famous park – be sure to take a walk or cycle ride and complete the three mile circuit
  • Often cited as Berlin’s premier attraction the Brandenburg Gate is a must, built in 1791 this is located by Hotel Adlon plus Akademie Der Kunste
  • Take a trip to Museum Island – this is a UNESCO world heritage listed site and home to all the city’s most important museums such as Altes, Neues, Bode, Pergamon and the Alte Nationalgalerie
  • Walk some of the city’s sights and visit Potsdamer Platz the once busy heart of the city prior to 1945 and now a shopping hub before walking to The Berlin Wall Memorial centre, the surviving portion of the wall and watchtower
  • Berlin has some wonderful flea markets which are great for the shopper amongst you; head to the flea markets at Arkonaplatz or Marheinekeplatz for some browsing in these neighbourhood settings
