• Berlin, main image
  • Overview

    A once divided city with a turbulent past, Berlin today is a vibrant, unified and modern capital. With an intriguing blend of cutting-edge and historic architecture, outstanding landmarks and fantastic green spaces, a thriving and contemporary art scene, delicious food, buzzing nightlife and a trendy vibe it’s a popular city break destination for all ages.

    Germany’s capital Berlin consists of twelve different districts ranging from former industrial areas in the east turned hip and trendy, to leafy neighbourhoods with lakes and woodlands in the west.

    The most famous sights are concentrated within the central districts and are easily discovered on foot with the Reichstag, Brandenburg Gate, Museuminseln and the Soviet-era TV Tower at Alexanderplatz top of the list for most first time visitors.

    If time permits don’t miss the lesser-known Nikolaikirche in the charming Nikolaiviertel quarter, the Bauhaus Archive, and the former US spy station in Grunewald Forest. Additionally, there’s an array of museums to visit as well as sobering memorials commemorating the city’s past, the central Tiergarten park for leisurely strolls and the urban beaches along the river Spree are great on a warm summer’s day.

    There are also traditional beer gardens, excellent dining opportunities at countless restaurants, a vibrant underground scene and a nightlife that never seems to stop.

    When to visit

    Berlin is a year-round city for sightseeing, events and festival and the city comes alive in summer with pleasantly warm days averaging around 18C and with no end of pavement cafés and cosy beer gardens, city parks and green spaces perfect for picnics, plus urban beaches along the river Spree as well as numerous lakes to cool off in. Autumn is time to enjoy the vibrant colours of the Grunewald forest and the city parks and a great time for events and cultural festivals. Winters are chilly but tempts with numerous Christmas markets from November onwards and spring days are crisp and clear.

    Allow Classic to organise your city break to Berlin, ensuring you get the most out of your stay. This includes finding perfect flight times to maximise your time in the city, and a concierge service to help arrange the little extras, such as pre-booking tickets and making restaurant reservations on your behalf.
