Berlin is a great city. At some point I should really stay there for a couple of weeks, but so far I’ve only been for short breaks.
Aside from the main highlights, it’s a great place to wander around and explore all the different neighbourhoods.
I really want to go back!
HOW TO DO IT:
- Go: The flight from London only takes two hours, so go after work to make the most of the weekend.
- Stay: Schoenhouse Aparments is great – large flats in a great location, highly recommended!
- Eat: Brunch is massive in Berlin. You’ll be completely spoilt for choice around Prenzlauer Berg, a lovely neighbourhood to explore on a lazy Sunday morning.
- Do: Don’t miss highlights like the Brandenburg Gate and Checkpoint Charlie, as seeing these up close gives you great insight on recent German history. But also make sure to spend some time just wandering around – Berlin is full of hidden gems and you don’t want to miss that!
