If you're craving a splash of creativity and culture, just look for flights from London to Berlin. Berlin is a buzzing city and is just a two-hour flight away from London. Aside from its Cold War history, this city has something for everyone. Swirl and twirl your way through the weekend at the many dance venues, such as the legendary Berghain, lose yourself in the 6,000 years of visionary artworks at Museum Island, or maybe even find a nice place to relax in the sprawling Tiergartens.
This route is pretty affordable all year round, but your best chance for savings on London to Berlin flights is to embrace the cold and look for winter travel deals, especially between November and January. December’s winter wonderland vibe might bring a gleeful smile to your face, but is also the most expensive time to visit. Visiting between June and September is expensive too, but serves up plenty of summertime sizzle, including salsa dancing at Monbijou Park. Don't forget to bring a brolly though, as it may rain in July and August.
If you've already found cheap London Berlin flights, you’re probably flying out of Stansted Airport (STN), conveniently located just off the M11. There are plenty of coach and bus services to this airport, with National Express offering 24-hour service. Take the Stansted Express train from Liverpool Street and you’ll arrive right beneath the airport terminal in just 45 minutes.
At around one hour and 50 minutes, you’ll spend more time in the airport than on your journey from London to Berlin. Wallet-friendly Ryanair and easyJet fly the 600 miles from Stansted and Luton (LTN), respectively, arriving at Schönefeld Airport (SXF). But if you’re taking advantage of the British Airways frequent-flyer programme, then the larger Berlin Tegel Airport (TXL) will be your landing pad.
Tegel Airport is five miles from the city centre and is Berlin’s main international airport. Buses from here will zip you into Berlin in no time at all. Note, however, that Tegel will close once Berlin-Brandenburg Airport (BER) opens around 2018. Schönefeld Airport's railway station is a 5-minute walk away, and the express train will get you into the city centre for GBP 2.50. For the same price, the S-Bahn will also do the trick and is handy for destinations around Berlin. If you prefer taking the bus, hop onto the X7, 171 or N7 to Rudow and then switch onto the U7 metro line.
Eclectic and electric, Berlin will leave you bowled over. The hushed tones of the nave of Berlin Cathedral will first soothe you, before it wows you with its amazing views from atop its domed towers. The lazy days of summer will have you enjoying a picnic in the park and taking a long walk along the River Spree. Alternatively, you could have a few pints at a Tiergarten biergarten. Schloss Charlottenburg evokes visions of royal splendour, while the Berlin Wall offers gritty visual treats and stunning graffiti. Don’t forget to try the culinary delights of currywurst and pfannkuchen doughnuts.
