Discover an iconic European capital: Berlin - where East meets West

Dear Europeans,

as long promised, the Berlin trip is here! 

Spend a weekend in the vibrant capital of Germany, discovering less obvious corners of this history rich city!

Our guide has lived in Berlin at a time when the city was changing rapidly and has been a regular visitor since then.

We will visit iconic sites of East and West Berlin, the Wall, and stroll in Tiergarten, by the Siegesaeule and the Reichstag, followed by a visit of the Museum of the Wall by Checkpoint Charlie.

We will also have a morning brunch in one of Eastern Berlin trendy cafes and even try and stop by the outdoor pool in the cool area of Kreuzberg for those of you who want to enjoy the last long summer days before flying back to London. 

Please contact Daniela to book your space. Deposit of £99 payable now and the remaining £99 payable in two months time by end of August.

A visit to the famous Holocaust monument:

Our Berlin trip (£198) includes a shared room accommodation and a nutritious breakfast in a trendy part of town and all guided tours. The supplement for a single room is ONLY £10 (!!)  on top, so you might want to consider that if you like your own space!

You are responsible to buy your own flights (not included). We will be flying Easyjet from Gatwick:

 Dep 08:40 - Arr 11:35

Flight EZY54091 £47.49

Sun 21 September 2014

We look forward to a great weekend with our favourite London Europeans in one of the most influential capitals of modern Europe


..and of course a mandatory stop at a lucious beer garden by the Spree river, to savour the local beers and food specialties and freshen up after a busy day :)

    I loved this trip. I liked hearing about the recent history of the city and how it evolved and came to be the city we see today. Daniela made sure we had our bearings and pointed to the major landmarks. I found the city to be dynamic and secure. People were very friendly and volunteered their help even without being asked. Loved the riverside and the museum island. And staying in the DDR building was a good experience to give us some insight about how people used to live in East Germany. The goup size was perfect. It was great to be part of this weekend with friends. Hopefully see you all soon and thank you Daniela!

      I most loved your company, curiosity and each personality as each contributed to the group in their own way. Please find me on Facebook to stay in touch or join me at the film night this Friday as it would be lovely to see you! Ps the new puppy is adorable! Big hug and thanks for a nice time together x

    A huge thank you to Daniela for making this trip such a great success. It made all the difference being shown round by someone who knew the city (or maybe still the two cities) so well. Chapeau!

    There is a great great movie about the Wall after we come back at the Goethe institut. Only £3. Anybody interested to host? I'll certainly go if I don't work late on the 24th http://www.goethe.de/ins/gb/lon/ver/en13290900v.htm

    Hi Daniela,
    This trip sounds very interesting but since the flight tickets are more expensive now I've been thinking about flying in on Thursday and coming back on Monday. Would you be able to give me the accommodation details so I could see if I could book with them two extra nights.

      Penny, this is Berlin and not Bavaria. You need to have a Berliner Weiße and a Döner Kebab.
