Top Tips from Our Travel Experts
Berlin is easily accessible from most of the UK and we have some fantastic hotels there of a very high standard. It is great for different subjects meaning groups can combine if they need to increase their numbers. The people are friendly and its cheap and easy to get around. My top tips are:
1. Book as soon as you can. Some visits book up more than six months ahead, so be quick to avoid disappointment.
2. Familiarise yourself with the public transport system before you travel. It is very efficient and easy to use – as long as you prepare ahead of time.
3. If you are studying multiple eras of Berlin’s history, consider organising your visits by topic instead of geographical convenience.
4. We have lots of different types of restaurants available, from traditional German sausages, to American burgers or Indian curries.
5. Climb the Reichstag building at night – the views from the top are fantastic. This is a fun, free evening activity.
