Seven Reasons to Visit Berlin


Berlin, Germany, is a fantastic choice for a city break and best of all it's perfect at any time of the year.  Packed with amazing sights, modern transports links, and plenty to see and do, there are many reasons to visit Berlin, but we are going to name only seven of them:

Less Expensive than Other European Capitals

One of the main reasons the German capital is so popular is that it is still one of Europe's cheapest city break destinations. Perfect for those looking to travel to Berlin on a budget and looking for a base to explore the city from.

With two airports for those visiting Berlin, Tegal Airport, and Schonefeld Airport, flights to this exciting city are abundant, keeping flight prices pretty low. Schonefeld Airport is associated with what we call budget airlines and is a bit further away from the city's center and has many cheaper hotels and hostels in the area.

Lots of Museums and Other Attractions


 Are you a culture buff? You have picked the right place to see some fascinating museums!

 Alte Nationalgalerie Museum is not only one to visit for the range of displays hosted here but the building itself is absolutely striking.
