Day Trippin'

No matter what time of year you find yourself in Berlin, there will always be something happening. At Christmas there are, of course, the great German markets in every city centre, with food stalls and even ice rinks. At Easter, you will find fantastic Easter markets and day and night entertainment for kids and adults.

Even if you are just visiting in a non-eventful time of year, there is still plenty to occupy yourself with. For the more educated and historically inclined, seeing the sights of Berlin is an absolute must. From the Brandenburg Gate, to The Reichstag and from Checkpoint Charlie to The Berlin Cathedral, it is rare that you can get through all the sites in just one visit. However, if this is why you visited Berlin in the first place, then it is advisable to jump on a sight-seeing bus which circles the sights all day everyday. They offer a guided tour and a ‘jump on – jump off’ service, so that visitors can investigate the landmarks on a more personal basis.

Berlin is also renowned for its many Museums, namely the ‘Museum Insel’ (Museum Island) at Alexanderplatz. This area is home to the world famous Pergamonmuseum, Alte National Galerie, Bodemuseum and Altes Neues Museum. However there is no need to stop there, as Berlin has many other museums on offer, including the architecturally stunning Jewish museum and the Checkpoint Charlie Haus Museum.

After all that history, you may need to relax a bit. So why not visit Berlin Zoo and the Aquarium next to Berlins beautiful Tiergarten, or take a boat ride on the River Spree and a trip up the TV tower at Alexanderplatz.
