Berlin Holidays

Your Berlin holiday

The city of Berlin began as a small fishing community called Colln. Located on the Spree River, this community eventually merged with the nobles from a neighbouring community in 1244. The nobles were ruthless rulers over the town people and in the 15th century the people sought the protection of the Roman Emperor and leader Fredrich von Hohenzollern. The family was in control of Berlin for many centuries up until the foundation of the German Reich in 1871. With the onset of the Industrial Revolution, more people moved to Berlin to work from the surrounding countryside, spurring a major population increase to around four million people by beginning of the 20th century. Towards the end of the 19th century, Otto von Bismarck connected France, Prussia, Austria and other parts of Germany together. However, the empire faced a serious problem following First World War, and riots took out the imperial political system and replaced it with a democratic constitution. Devastating economic problems and the fallout from the First World War created the desperation in Germany that allowed Hitler to rise to power, marching into Berlin and taking control of the country in 1933. Hitler invaded Austria and Czechoslovakia and ordered the ghettoisation, repression, and execution of Jewish populations in Berlin and across the country. The result was the Holocaust and the Second World War. Following the War, the United States controlled the West and Soviet Union the East of the city. However, the United States airlifted food to Berlin, until the wall dividing the city fell in 1989.

Best time to take a holiday to Berlin

  • The weather in Berlin can change quickly, and visitors should bring rain or snow gear when travelling to the city. Temperatures normally fall between summer highs of 23°C and winter lows that regularly reach -3°C. Tourists typically come to the city during the more temperate months of April through October, though tours of the beautiful snowfalls of winter on the historic buildings of Berlin have their own appeal for more romantically inclined visitors. The Fête de la Musique and Oberbaumbrücke Festival, both featuring music and dance, occur during Berlin's more temperate months.

Berlin highlights

  • Stroll though Tiergarten

    Relax and enjoy natural scenery at the Tiergarten. The largest park in Berlin is also the oldest. It was once hunting terrain, but has been changed to become the best spot for people to jog, walk, and simply take in the surrounding natural beauty. The park has monument memorials from the war, statues, and old estates, as well as a great Philharmonie where Berlin’s Philharmonic Orchestra plays. It is also home to the Bauhaus Archiv-Museum, a famous design school.

    Visit the Alexanderplatz Square

    Step back into political history at this constantly transforming square. An old train track cuts the square area in half, with the Platz part to one side, and a Marx-Engels Forum and Television Tower on the opposite. The historic television tower has a remarkable café on the highest floor. The tower spins every half hour, providing unforgettable views of the city.

    Get a City Wide Perspective

    See all the best that Berlin has to offer with City Guide Berlin company tour services. This one-day tour will delight visitors who are interested in history and architectural marvels, and comes with backstage passes to the theatre and performance circuit. The excursion is great for budget travellers who are short on time.

    Step into the Wild at the Zoologischer Garten Berlin

    Check out elephants, panda bears, or insects are housed in this world-renowned zoo, which has more variation of species than all other zoos in the world. An accompanying aquarium features a large collection of sea animals Coordinate your visit with the Animal Park Festival, when the zoo welcomes music, art, and dance to add to the animal sights. Be sure to go with plenty of time to spare, because once visitors enter they find themselves staying an entire day.

    Schloss Sanssouci and Park Sanssouci

    This architectural marvel is a favourite for visitors amazed by the design of Frederick the Great.

    The palace has a distinctive half-circle shape and sits atop a terraced hill surrounded by 750 acres of gardens, including fountains, a Chinese teahouse, and other monuments.

    Inside is an incredible circle-shaped library, artwork by Caravaggio, and intricate ceiling murals. The palace was at one time home to Voltaire.

    Judishces Museum

    Designed by Daniel Libeskind, this museum’s permanent exhibits show the perspective of Germany’s Jewish community throughout the nation’s history.

    Artwork such as sculptures and paintings were culled from private collections, giving an in-depth look at the Jewish community’s history in Germany for over 2,000 years. Do not miss Libeskind’s elaborate Star of David angels.

    Underground

    The most extensive underground system in Germany exists in Berlin. It is also one of the most modern in all of Europe. Nine lines cover 151.7 km and have 170 stations. Trains run at five-minute intervals during rush hour, and underground trains travel at 30 km per hour. The system services half of the transportation volume within the city. Best of all, the system has high environmental responsibility.
