Berlin

One of the most captivating cities in Europe, Germany's exciting capital is a joy to discover for all ages.

Cheap flights and accommodation for holidays and city breaks to Berlin

The fusion of outstanding modern architecture with poignant reminders of Berlin’s turbulent past has formed a fascinating metropolis that continues to change. Enjoy superb museums, excellent shopping, spacious parks and unsurpassed nightlife. Not to be missed is the famous department store KaDeWe, the renowned Ku’damm shopping district and exquisite glimpses of pre-war Berlin along the beautifully restored Unter den Linden Avenue. This diverse and vibrant city will delight you time and again!

Of strategic importance since it first straddled the Spree River in the 13th century, Berlin went on to hog centre stage in the turbulent 20th century. Today the city, restored as the nation's capital, is the focus of a mammoth project of reunification and the barometer of Germany's moods.

This is the heart of Germany, with a stoic beat that echoes through grand public buildings, glorious museums and theatres, urbane restaurants, bustling pubs and raucous nightclubs. The Wall is gone but Berlin is still divided: there's a distinct segue from the glitz of the west to shabby East Berlin. This area was quickly colonised by the trendy cafe-bar set in the early 1990s and swiftly rebuilt.

Today, traffic passes freely under the Brandenburg Gate. It once marked the impenetrable boundary between East and West Berlin until the memorable celebrations in November 1989 when the wall was torn down. Nowadays enterprising scammers sell chunks of Berlin Wall concrete, mostly of dubious authenticity. If the Wall was ever reconstructed from the fragments sold to tourists it could probably enclose the whole of Germany.

Also worth a visit is the checkpoint Charlie Museum. It is interesting, with its display of ingenious devices employed in escape attempts from the former East Germany.
