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!

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.

Berlin Museums

Ask your Local Host about Berlin's amazing collections.

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.
