One of Europe's most vibrant destinations, and a perfect Big Short Break destination. Since the fall of the Wall in 1989 and German national reunification in 1990, Berlin has undergone a dramatic refurbishment and reinvented itself as a metropolis for the 21st century.

Harriet and Flora are here to help give you the inside track.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • There's obviously history and culture galore, but what really sets the German capital apart is the creative vibe. The clubbing scene might be a little too techno/industrial for all tastes, but there's no denying the clubs themselves are achingly cool
  • Some of Europe's most thought-provoking and fascinating museums

Our guide to holidays in Berlin

This most cosmopolitan of German cities is once more the country's capital, and though it may lack the urban beauty of Paris or Rome, it makes up for it with its long history, and vibrant sense of renewal.

The frenzy of reconstruction projects that made the city the largest building site in Europe for most of the past decade is nearing completion, unveiling a new, restored Berlin. For its part, the former East Berlin has blossomed into one of Europe's most energetic and affluent artistic quarters.

The birthplace of cabaret and techno, Berlin has rediscovered its edge and regained its place amongst Europe's premier cultural destinations. From classical music and art, to its buzzing, bohemian neighbourhoods, modern art galleries, restaurants, hotels, bars and clubs, Berlin is a city full of renewed energy and enthusiasm.

The places to stay are boutique hotels scattered across the city, and all excellent in their own idiosyncratic ways.


Original Highlight

Take a walking tour of some of Berlin’s 20th century historical sights, from the bunker where Hitler spent his final hours, to the remains of the Wall, to Checkpoint Charlie. Fascinating and involving for all including your little history buffs in-the-making.
