Germany Travel Tips and Guides

24 Hours in: Berlin

If you only have 24 hours to explore Berlin I highly recommend imagining yourself as a Dr. Who-style time lord (police box, optional) and beginning your day circa. 1939 before finishing in laidback Kreuzberg: a neighbourhood that typifies what it's like to be a modern day Berliner. Exploring Berlin's culture chronologically will highlight the huge political leap this city has made in just under a century. (And, conveniently, you will round-up the day amongst Berlin's best night life).

Gluhwein Recipe

Gluhwein, (or glow-wine) is popular in German-speaking countries and is named from the hot irons once used for mulling. It is a traditional beverage that is offered during the Christmasholidays, so if you're already feeling festive, why not try our very own Gluhwein recipe...

The Best Christmas Markets in Europe

The days are getting shorter, the telly's getting better and we've already had our first batch of mince pies in the office, which can only mean one thing: you can officially start getting excited about Christmas now.

80 Senses: #48 - Vintage shopping in Berlin

A good vintage... Is Berlin the hippest city in the world right now? We at Original Travel think it might just be. 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. There's also a community of excellent contemporary artists working across various media, and a feeling that the city is the hub of so much invention at the moment.

We felt like we were Original Travel's only clients - the service was completely personalised and all questions were answered instantly. They actively listened to our priorities and created a package that completely suited our needs. Throughout the process they will surprise you with their attentiveness and most importantly, they will not forget about you once you come back from holiday.
