Learn about Berlin’s history that continues to shape the city today
A blend of historic landmarks, dynamic architecture of recent years, fabulous food and a vibrant culture make Berlin one of Europe’s best city break destinations. Join us as we discover the city’s rich history and soak up the ambience on our German city break.
After arriving at Berlin Tegel Airport, we’ll proceed through immigration and collect our luggage before heading to our hotel in Berlin for a Solos welcome drink and dinner at the hotel.
After breakfast we will begin our 3-hour guided tour of Berlin. We will explore the main highlights, such as the Reichstag, seat of the German government, Potsdamer Platz, the new centre of Berlin, the Brandenburg Gate, Unter den Linden, once Berlin’s showcase boulevard, the famous border crossing site ‘Checkpoint Charlie’, Alexanderplatz and the TV tower, and remains of the Berlin Wall. We will finish off our tour at the former Western part.
The rest of the day is free for you to explore Berlin independently.
Today is free for you to spend however you wish.
You can visit museums and cultural landmarks or try Berlin’s tasty beer. This is a city celebrated for its freedom, creativity and cool attitude. It’s a city like no other in the world!
After breakfast we will have some free time before we’ll transfer to the airport for our return flight home.
Our hotel is located in the popular district of Mitte, just a short walk from the Friedrichstraße shopping street, Reichstag parliament building and Berlin’s central railway station.
The hotel’s restaurant provides fresh specialities from Berlin and the Brandenburg region, and drinks can be enjoyed at the hotel’s bar, Albrechts.
All rooms are equipped with radio, TV, minibar and telephone. Most rooms have free Wi-Fi and some have wired internet.
The transfer time from Berlin Tegel Airport to your hotel in Berlin is approximately 30-40 minutes, depending on the traffic.
We suggest a Group Collection to cover guides, transfer drivers, and hotel staff of minimum £15.00 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate % to add on.
A 3-hour guided tour (by bus and walking) is included in your touring package.
A warm jacket, sweater and scarf will keep you nice and toasty, whilst a small hand umbrella for emergencies never hurts. You shouldn’t need any specialist footwear, beyond good walking shoes.

I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
