Berlin, the capital of Germany, is without a doubt one of the most famous cities in Europe, if not the most famous. Known for its important part played throughout history, everybody loves the fact that it has such diversity within one city.
City Break to Berlin
The deal I have found you is available on travelbird.co.uk for only £89 per person. This includes your 2 Night 4* Hotel stay, Flights from London Stansted and a daily Breakfast. It’s the perfect deal for you to getaway and explore an amazing city.
The hotel you will be staying in is the 4* Ivbergs Hotel Premium, which has received an excellent TripAdvisor rating of 4.5/5 as well as being awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for 2014. Whilst you’re staying here you will be provided with a daily Breakfast, so you can plan your attack on the city over a relaxing morning meal.
The history of Berlin is one which is best described as epic. It has been fought over, bombed, divided into two different parts, owned by two different countries, had a wall put up through the middle of it and only recently been reunited.
If you want to see some of this history, all you have to do is go to see what is left of the Berlin Wall.. it’s actually been turned into a piece of artwork now, with some really excellent graffiti! Around the wall is also a “Trabi Safari” which is the old fashioned East-Berlin cars, which have been slightly modernised and painted with different animal prints! It’s actually really cool.
There’s also always the TV tower, which is actually the way I found my way around the city; if you can see the “Fernsehturm” then you can orientate yourself really quickly. Going up it is also great; it has fantastic views, and a great cocktail bar.
Naturally the Reichstag is the place that everybody wants to go. If you’re going to do this, booking in advance is definitely recommended and you will also need your passport with you, to prove you’re allowed to enter and such.
If you wanted to eat out one evening, there are so many choices for you.. you’re genuinely spoilt for choice. I would recommend that you head to Jamme Ja, which is an Italian street food restaurant and it’s really good! If you wanted something a bit more upmarket and expensive; a real splurge, you could head to Heising, which is one of the best French restaurants in the country! Definitely worth the money.
This is a really great deal, which gives you an amazing chance to have a relaxing break in a great hotel, whilst managing to learn more about the history of a truly amazing city.
