Germany’s capital is a city rich with history where its past is very much cemented in its present.

Situated in the north east of the country on the banks of the rivers Havel and Spree, this multicultural metropolis has staged a revolution, provided a central hub for the Nazis, been decimated by bombs, divided in half (literally; by the wall) and then reunited - and thats just within the last century.

Though a large city, its main features can be found within its pre-war boundaries so navigating its most interesting and influential sites is pretty straight forward.

Its laid back party vibe caters to all tastes, supporting the claims that this is the real “city that never sleeps”. From bars and bistros, cafe’s and clubs to fine dining, pop-up’s and street vendors, Berlin has it all.

With high’s in the mid-twenties to low’s just below freezing and light rain throughout the year, Berlin as fairly constant weather making it a pretty straight forward climate to prepare for once you have your dates.

Served by 2 main airports, Tegel (TXL), situated within the city limits and Schönefeld Airport (SXF) south east of the city, its an extremely accessible place to visit. It also benefits from excellent public transport in the form of the S-Bahn and U-Bahn for getting around once you’re there.

With so much history and so much to do and see from the Reichstag and Checkpoint Charlie to the Jewish Museum, the Berlin Zoo and all the restaurants, bars and clubs, there’s really no reason not to book you’re next trip now.
