Berlin Getaway 3 Nights (ME)

“...It's time for a holiday. Life is a cabaret, old chum.” In these lyrics from Cabaret, set in Berlin, Liza Minnelli reminds us life is to be enjoyed—and we should take vacations! Monograms agrees, which is why we’ve made traveling to Berlin easy for you. On this 4-day vacation to Berlin, we've arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast, and sightseeing. To help you feel comfortable and at home in the city, we've also arranged the services of a Monograms Local Host®, someone who is there for you throughout your stay to answer questions, give you insights, and help ensure your vacation is all you want it to be.

Your vacation begins as soon as you arrive in Berlin. Your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome, help you get settled, and give you a set of materials full of useful information on the city. You can begin exploring immediately and the next morning, after included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing with a local expert. Berlin is a city with a tumultuous history, and you'll hear inside stories that only a local can share. You’ll see some of the famous landmarks, such as the restored Reichstag, Germany's historic Parliament building; Checkpoint Charlie, the famous border checkpoint between the American and Soviet sectors; and remains of the Berlin Wall. We’ll stop for a picture at the Holocaust Memorial and Brandenburg Gate, the gateway that was the former border between the East and West.

You’ll also have a full day to explore on your own. Perhaps visit one of the many museums, such as the Jewish Museum; take an excursion to Potsdam, the palace where the Prussian kings spent their summers; take a tour to learn about the final days of the Third Reich; watch a cabaret show; or just grab a beer at a local Biergarten. Your Local Host will have suggestions and can help you arrange your activities.

Berlin is an interesting city that can only be truly appreciated in the company of locals who understand its history and the challenges of reuniting. That's why we've arranged the guides and Local Host that we have. Between them and the sightseeing we've included, the hotel we’ve booked, and the breakfasts we've included, all you have to do is sit back and enjoy!

Berlin

Berlin

Charlottenburg Palace

Originally built in 1695 as the summer residence of Sophie Charlotte, the first queen of Prussia, it is one of the landmarks of Berlin. Subsequent generations of the royal family expanded and remodeled the palace according to the taste of their time. As a result, the palace contains interior decoration reflecting several architectural styles: the old palace, with its magnificent baroque state rooms and the famous porcelain cabinet, and the new wing built by Frederick the Great in 1742.

Reichstag Roof Terrace & Dome

In 1894, after ten years of construction, the Reichstag was completed and its dome towered above the City Castle. The Parliament building has reflected the turbulence of German history since that time. The dome and the roof terrace are only open for registered visitors (Pre-registration is required). Your Local Host will have details.

Holocaust Memorial

Close to the Brandenburg Gate in the heart of Berlin, find the Holocaust Memorial. It is a stele-field which can be walked through from all sides, serving as a central place for remembering and reminding people of the Holocaust.

Boat Ride

Relax and enjoy the scenery on a peaceful boat ride through the city. Your Local Host has more information.

Unter den Linden, Nikolai Quarter, Gendarmenmarkt

Stroll along the famed Unter den Linden avenue to the old town, known as Nikolai Quarter, then continue to the Gendarmenmarkt, considered Berlin's most beautiful square. Ask your Local Host about this and other walking routes around town.

Picture Gallery – Gemäldegalerie

You'll be hard-pressed to find a better painting collection than the offerings in the Gemäldegalerie (Picture Gallery) by such luminaries as Van Dyk, Hals, Rubens, and Rembrandt. Designed by Munich architects Hilmer & Sattler, the building is a work of art in its own right.

Berlin Museums

Ask your Local Host about Berlin's amazing collections. Museum Island includes the Alte Nationalgalerie (19th centery sculptures and paintings), the Altes (collection of classical antiquities), Neues (includes the 3000 year old bust of Egyptian queen Nefertiti) and Bode (with a Numismatic collection) Museums. Visit the German History Museum on Unter den Linden Avenue. At Checkpoint Charlie see the Assisi Panorama of the Divided City, and Museum. To learn more about Berlin during the Third Reich, visit the Stasi Exhibition or the Topography of Terror. The Story of Berlin Interactive Museum is equipped with multimedia technology for experiencing everyday life during different eras.

Madame Tussauds

Millions of people have flocked through the doors of Madame Tussauds around the world since they first opened over 200 years ago and it remains just as popular as it ever was. There are many reasons for this enduring success, but at the heart of it all is good, old-fashioned curiosity. The third European site was Berlin in 2008, where the attraction opens in ‘Unter den Linden’.

Shopping and Markets

Take advantage of great shopping and fine restaurants on the Kurfurstendamm, or stroll along the Tauentziennstrasse. You might find just what you're looking for at the Europa Center or at the Kadewe, Europe's largest department store. Drop in on the Türkenmarkt overflowing with fresh fruits and vegetables, fresh-baked breads, and culinary wonders.

Olympic Stadium

Built for the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany, the stadium now hosts football matches including the German Cup final and other sports events.

Prater

Prater is Berlin’s oldest beer garden (since 1837). Relax beneath large trees, with beer or wine, and enjoy home-made Berliner cuisine and seasonal specialities.

Riesling wine, Beers, Bratwurst, Sauerkraut, Sauerbraten, Dumplings

Try some or all the above German specialties! The Berliner Weisse beer is brewed locally and typically offered with raspberry (red) or woodruff herb (green) flavoring.

Berlin Nightlife

Stroll the Oranienburger Strasse, an in-place at night and an artists meeting point with cafes and restaurants. Or take in a show, your Local Host will have suggestions to pass the time while in Berlin.
