Your destinations

Berlin

A city that has experienced some of Germany’s most turbulent history, Berlin is now the country’s cosmopolitan heart. Its cityscape is dominated by the Berlin Wall, and no trip to the city would be complete without walking part of this iconic divide - the East Side Gallery is arguably the best place to experience it, with colourful, large-scale art pieces adorning the concrete.

 

Experience grand architecture with a walk down the historic avenue Unter den Linden, which cuts the city in half between the bustling shopping district of Alexanderplatz and the Brandenburg Gate. Then, observe these busy streets from a different angle from the glass dome atop the Reichstag, a contemporary addition to the historic parliament building which was partly destroyed by fire in 1933. If you’re looking for culture, Museum Island is the place to go, a beautiful ensemble of five world-class museums including the National Gallery and the Bode-Museum.

 

Berlin is a city with two sides - meaning you can spend your evenings exploring the quirky bars in Kreuzberg, or relaxing with a traditional German beer on the shores of one of the many lakes outside of the inner city. So whether you’re looking for a relaxing break or one that packs a punch, Berlin is the place to be!
