New Year's Eve
The city celebrates at the Brandenburg Gate
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 of this exciting city on our New Year German city break.
After arriving at Berlin Brandenburg Airport, we’ll proceed through and collect our luggage before heading to our hotel for a Solos welcome drink and dinner at the hotel.
After breakfast we board our coach to the city of Potsdam. Our first stop will be the Sanssouci Palace for an audio tour where we can discover the favourite place of King Frederick the Great. We explore the ornate and opulent rooms to understand why it was the King’s most loved residence.
Following on from the palace we go on in to Potsdam itself for a guided city tour. It is a UNESCO heritage sight because it is full of charm and picturesque history. In the centre of Potsdam are two traditional market squares. One features a 16-metre obelisk in its centre and the other square dates back to the 17th century. It is one of the best-preserved baroque squares in Europe.
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 us to explore Berlin before we get ready to celebrate the arrival of the New Year!
Happy New Year! After a leisurely 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 Brandenburg Airport to your hotel in Berlin is approximately 30-40 minutes, depending on the traffic.
A 3-hour guided tour (by bus and walking) and full day visiting Potsdam and the Sanssouci Palace is included in your touring package.
We suggest layers – A warm jacket, sweater and scarf will keep you warm and a light jacket to have on standby if it is a little warmer. Whilst a small hand umbrella for emergencies never hurts. You shouldn’t need any specialist footwear, beyond good walking shoes.
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.
