Today we transfer into the city centre, where there are many sights to see, from impressive landmarks such as Brandenburg Gate and Reichstag Parliament to a multitude of fascinating museums, including Checkpoint Charlie.
Berlin is a fascinating city, and we’ll be able to take an optional guided tour of the city to find out more about its history. With help from an expert tour guide, we’ll travel past some of its most famous attractions, while learning all about how the city has changed over the years.
The capital city of the Brandenburg state, this German city is filled with wonderful sights and is always interesting to visit. We’ll spend the day in Potsdam during an optional excursion and will be able to explore the city at leisure, discovering everything from its many museums, to landmarks such as the Sanssouci Palace, St. Nicholas' Church and Potsdam’s Brandenburg Gate.
Heading away from the city, we’ll discover a different world of greenery and nature as we visit the ‘Spreewald’. South of Berlin, this area is made up of forests, crossed by canals and the River Spree and is designated a UNESCO biosphere reserve. Our day will include a guided walking tour in the charming old town of Lehde, a local lunch and boat trip.
Located in the Lichtenberg suburb, on the eastern side of the city, with regular connections to the centre, this modern hotel is a great base, from where you can explore the sights of Berlin.
