If you’ve travelled through Europe and somehow managed to skip Berlin, then you must have been lost, because we know you wouldn’t ditch beers and bratwursts on purpose. There’s something for everyone in the capital city of Deutschland, especially with our fantastic Berlin holiday deals. Get one now and be gone tomorrow!
Now that you’ve arrived for your Berlin holiday, down a stein and then hit the city with light feet. You’re going to want to check out the Pergamon Museum on Museum Island. Within these stone walls are life-sized reconstructed buildings like the Market Gate of Miletus and the Pergamon Altar. They’re buildings inside buildings—it’s incredible!
It’s hard to travel to the capital of Germany and not see something connected to the Berlin Wall. Make your way over to the Gedenkstatte Berliner Mauer (Berlin Wall Memorial) and feast your eyes on one of Germany’s best monument sites. Here you’ll walk through the Documentation Centre, Chapel of Reconciliation and see an original section of the wall. Somehow it manages to be eerie and beautiful at the same time.
As with many other major European cities, many of the most popular shopping districts are situated in and around the city’s biggest squares. Berlin is no different, with some of its best shopping being located in Alexanderplatz. Known to locals as Alex, this massive square boasts big-name department stores as well as local boutiques. Many of the hotels you get with Berlin packages will be located close to major shopping hubs so you can spend away just steps from your room.
When you finally get hungry, the city centre—Mitte—has no shortage of places to eat. Street vendors, small cafes and fancy restaurants are all ready to shove delicious plates in your face. Start with breakfast, which usually consists of bread rolls, cold cuts, cheeses, jam and eggs. Then, maybe around noon, get a bratwurst for lunch, because bratwurst translates to Germany! For dinner you’re going to want to order up a plate of German Sauerbraten. Remember, all of this only works if you have a stein filled with Kolsch-style beer.
Germany is home to Oktoberfest, so yeah, we’re pretty sure the Germans know how to party.
