Berlin City Breaks
A vibrant, multi-faceted giant of a city, Berlin is permanently on the list of 10 most popular European city breaks. We at Co-operative Travel have carefully sourced our Berlin package city breaks from a range of providers, to ensure you get the very best value for money.
Berlin city breaks leapfrog through history; the glamour and sophistication of 1920s Friedrichstrasse meeting the Communist era via Imperial Prussia. Berlin was its capital, although sadly many beautiful buildings were lost in WWII. All bargain city breaks to Berlin should include Pariser Platz, once one of Europe’s finest public squares, and the magnificent Brandenburg Gate. Take a short stroll along the tree-lined boulevard of Unter den Linden, and you’ll see many of Berlin’s grandest buildings; the Berlin State Opera, St. Hedwig’s Cathedral, the Zeughaus Historical Museum, the Altes Palais (Old Palace) and the Neue Wache guardhouse which is now a museum.
Those booking weekend breaks during the warmer weather should stay near the beautiful Tiergarten. This is where you can see the Reichstag, Victory Column, Bismarck Memorial and Schloss Bellevue (the German presidential residence). The park is also the home of the Berlin Philharmonic, who perform their concerts here. The Carillon Tower houses a massive musical instrument of 68 bells, played by a keyboard.
Other places of interest on cheap Berlin city breaks include the famous Berlin Zoo, the iconic Memorial Church ruin and the futuristic TV Tower. Of course many visitors book last minute Berlin city breaks for Checkpoint Charlie, and the iconic Berlin Wall museum, but just as many come for the cultural attractions of Museum Island, Berliner Dom cathedral and the stunning Charlottenburg Palace – the largest palace in Berlin.
Berlin package city breaks aren’t just about history and heritage. Many visitors book weekend breaks for the lively beer cellars and waterfront restaurants. Others shop for cheap gifts at the flea markets and shopping streets like Friedrichstrabe. With cheap Berlin city breaks available throughout the year, we at The Co-operative Travel guarantee one visit won’t be enough.
