Cheap flights to Berlin
Edgy, full of character, multi-faceted and compelling, Berlin is all these things and more.
Germany’s capital is a city apart, and one you won’t forget in a hurry. People talk about how the city has been a hub of political goings on and the epicentre of historical happenings for hundreds of years, and they’re not wrong. It’s been divided by the Iron Curtain, torn apart by the Second World War; it’s been at the forefront of innovations in technology, art, and music – the list goes on.
Come for the history, for the trendy art scene, for some hardcore clubbing, or just to relax and take in the sights: it’s all on offer here.
After a long weekend in the various clubs and bars across Berlin, unwind at this stunning yet affordable spa and bathhouse. Complete with ambient coloured lighting and curated underwater beats, Liquidrom sets itself apart from anything you've experienced before. Float through its modern domed caverns before getting a salt peeling or moseying into a herb-infused sauna (10 Mockernstrasse, liquidrom-berlin.de).
In a converted WWII bunker, the private Boros Collection features an internationally renowned collection of contemporary artists in what was once a wartime building, then a fruit storage facility, and even an underground rave venue, before it was renovated to become a stunning gallery. From the far reaches of influence like China's Ai Weiwei to German-born names like Wolfgang Tillmans, a private tour (you must book ahead) through the bunker is a truly unique art experience (20 Reinhardtstrasse, sammlung-boros.de).
Sternberg Press, the independent publishing house located on the former "Stalin Allee", is enclosed by a building and street that holds a complex and fascinating history. Walk down from Alexanderplatz and experience a street that feels more like Moscow than Berlin, taking a break in the little bookstore full of interesting art and theory books, and boasting a beautifully maintained interior (78 Karl-Marx-Allee, sternberg-press.com).
