One of our favourite city breaks is Berlin. Berlin is a fascinating city with a wide range of culture and sights and not too expensive for a major capital (crazy Euro price versus the pound permitting!).
Berlin Flights & Hotel
There are many flight options to Berlin, your best bet is to compare flight prices with our skyscanner tool. As for the best hotel booking deals, again price comparison websites are a great starting point so sletoh is a site we would warmly recommend for Berlin hotel deals. If you have left it late then lastminute.com often have good deals. The airport transfers (bus) are thankfully well priced and a nice short journey.
Berlin City Guide
Since the Berlin Wall came down, a lot has happened in this city but it’s still in the East that you’ll find the cheapest hotel deals. In Berlin though you will find everything from the ultimate luxury in the Kurfürstendamm to the bohemian neighborhood of Kreuzberg. When it comes to shopping, Berlin has much to offer. Book your hotel in Berlin near the long Friedrichstrasse where you will find Galeries Lafayette, Quartier 206, Escada, Boss, and H&M. There is also the city’s best bookstore, Dussman, with culture on five floors. Kurfürstendamm, the KaDeWe and Mitte are other interesting shopping areas. Berlin has many interesting places to visit. Reichstag – German parliament – is a fantastic building. The view from the vast glass dome should not be missed. On the Museum Island are five venerable museums – included since 1999 in the UNESCO World Heritage Site. The island is also home to the beautiful Berlin cathedral dome.
