What to See and Do

There is so much to see and do in Berlin it is impossible to list everything here. Geographically the city is one of the largest in Europe, but the population is much smaller than that of London or Paris, with the result that it does not have the feeling of being over-crowded.  Getting around the city is very easy due to the excellent public transport system.  

 

· Berlin has a wide range of superb museums, galleries, historic buildings and other world-class attractions to appeal to all tastes and interests.

· There are many other daytime and evening concerts and events that we don’t have space to list here. 

· Berlin has some of the best shopping areas in the world, including the iconic Ka de We, Europe’s biggest department store.

· The choice of restaurants, bars and cafés is immense, to suit all tastes and budgets.

 

Accommodation

We can offer a choice of 3 , 4 and 5 Star Hotels, centrally located in Berlin.

We will be personally on hand during your stay to ensure that all arrangements run smoothly, to help and advise you to make the most of your holiday and to arrange any trips or excursions for you if desired.
