One of the most underrated capital cities in Europe, Berlin is a vibrant metropolis that blends together old and new to create as exciting a holiday destination as you are ever likely to find. With buzzing nightlife, fascinating historical sites and intoxicating local food and drink, this is a destination not to be missed.
An unmissable historical site during your Berlin holiday is the Berlin wall. Now a monument to the united Germany, it split the city and the country as a whole in half for decades and you can now take walking tours of it with knowledgeable guides. Within walking distance of most hotels in Berlin, the Berlin Philharmonic is one of the most celebrated classical music venues on earth and well worth a visit by the culture-vulture. While the city's many beer halls are fantastic places and make ideal venues to wind down in after a long day exploring the Old Town.
There are 12 separate direct UK flights to Berlin, stopping at either Berlin Tegel, Berlin Schonefeld or Berlin Brandenburg. As a result, there is plenty of choice for you when trying to work out the best rate. But wherever you decide to fly from, the easiest way to save money on travelling is to ensure that you book your flights as early as possible, as the cost of flights will only increase the longer you leave them. This is also true of hotels, which charge more for rooms the later you book them. If you really want to save money on accommodation, however, you may want to consider staying in one of the hostels near the Oranienburger Strasse, which are significantly cheaper than the local hotels and offer fantastic facilities.
