Few cities have seen as many changes over recent years as Berlin and today you can enjoy a full day exploring the city and all it has to offer. Having regained its pre-war status as the capital of Germany, Berlin now thrives on its exciting new architecture, youthful vibrancy and rich cultural diversity. The city has a cosmopolitan buzz that makes it one of Europe’s top city destinations. Berlin is a city with something for everyone, from fantastic gastronomic experiences, art, shopping, culture, history and much more.
During the “cold war” period the city was divided between east and west but is once again the flourishing capital of the unified Germany. The remainder of the day is at leisure, and with such a chequered past there is plenty for you to see and explore. Anyone wanting to experience the charm of ‘Winter Magic’ is in the right place in Berlin with a choice of plenty of Christmas markets, dotted all over the city. After the orientation tour you will have the remainder of the day to explore this fantastic city at your own pace before making your own way back to the hotel.

The Christmas Market here is named after Lucia, the Nordic goddess of light, and this is a popular market with anyone looking for a romantic atmosphere.
For a more nostalgic Christmas market head between the Staatsoper and Opernapalais where you will find traditional items such as tree decorations, candles and wooden figurines. The Gendarmenmarkt Christmas market takes place on one of the most beautiful squares in the city and here you may find exhibitors such as glassblowers, candlemakers and other craftspeople.
