Berlin Christmas Markets Itinerary
Day One – Fly to Berlin
Fly to Berlin and transfer to your hotel. Berlin’s legendarily efficient U-Bahn (underground), trams and buses bring everything within easy reach – from the glitz of Kurfuerstendamm (or simply Ku’damm) to the bright lights of Potsdamer Platz and the bars and restaurants dotted around the city centre.
Day Two – Included bus tour of Berlin
A local guide will introduce Berlin’s main sights on this morning’s bus tour – see Norman Foster’s startling Reichstag building, which rises up close to the majestic Brandenburg Gate and the wooded acres of the Tiergarten.
For the rest of the day you’re free to savour the aromas of gluhwein, almonds and sweet Christmas biscuits as you wander Berlin’s wonderful Christmas markets – from the Tyrolean wonderland of the ‘Winterwelt’ on Potsdamer Platz to the traditional stalls nestled in the shadow of the ruined towers of Kaiser Wilhelm-Gedachniskirche.
Day Three – Optional excursion to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp
Spend another day exploring Berlin and some of its other colourful Christmas markets, today. Alternatively, join our optional excursion to the sobering memorial and museum at Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp; you will be guided through the camp history in the company of an expert local guide.
This evening, enjoy another chance to join the Berliners ‘on the town’, or to continue exploring the markets, which stay open well into the evening.
Day Four – Fly back to the UK
Transfer back to the airport for your flight home, taking with you wonderful memories of this special festive break.
