Fly to Berlin Tegel Airport with Flybe
Glamorous, vibrant and global, Berlin has held a unique position in Europe since the 13th century as the crossing of two major trade routes. Divided into east and west after World War II but united in 1989 with the fall of the Berlin Wall, it is now Germany’s cultural and economic hub, renowned for its galleries, museums, nightlife and burgeoning entrepreneurial scene as well as its stunning sights. While much of the architecture was rebuilt after the war, fabulous new additions such as the Fernseeturm and Kollhoff Towers weave amongst historic landmarks including the Brandenburg Gate and the 17th century Charlottenburg Palace. Berlin is one of Europe’s top must-see cities, so book flights to Berlin today with Flybe and discover it all for yourself.

If you’re looking for fine dining, Berlin boasts no less than twelve restaurants in the Michelin Guide, and there are many more across the city where you can sample local delicacies such as currywurst and eisbein (pork knuckle) with a giant stein of local beer. For the ultimate schnitzel, head to Restauration 1900 on Husemannstraße, where the Holstein comes topped with a fried egg, salmon tartar and trout caviar. Few cities can party like Berlin, so after dinner, warm up at the fabulously named rooftop jazz bar Klunkerkranich before sampling Berlin’s reputation as the best clubbing city in Europe. Whatever your musical preference, Berlin famously caters to every taste.
No visit to Berlin would be complete without a little retail therapy and there’s only one place to start – historic Friedrichstrasse, Berlin’s very own Fifth Avenue. You can even take a break from shopping to visit Checkpoint Charlie or see pieces of the Berliner Wall. There are over 100 shops along the tree-lined Kurfürstendamm, and don’t miss the brand new Mall Of Berlin just off Potsdamer Platz with over 200,000 square metres of shopping covering everything from big name luxury brands to high street favourites.
Few cities offer as rich a cultural experience as Berlin. The best place to learn about the Berlin Wall and the division of Germany is the official Berlin Wall Memorial on Bernauer Strasse. The Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra often offers free Tuesday lunchtime concerts in the striking yellow tent-shaped Philharmonie near Potsdamer Platz. There are of course the usual city tours run by local reps, but for a real experience head to the lively farmers’ market at Markthalle 9 in Kreuzberg which dates back to 1891, or sample some of Berlin’s delicious beer at one of the 100-odd microbreweries. In and around Berlin are quite a few lakes, most of which are joyfully used for swimming and sunbathing in the summer. Or walk up Victoriapark, a 66-metre high hill offering stunning views and featuring the Berlin city waterfalls.
