Berlin is not just the political capital of Germany but also its cultural center. The city succeeds as one of the most on-trend and vibrant cities in Europe, a melting-pot of great nightlife and music, a thriving art scene, impressive architecture and significant history recognised in-part by the iconic Berlin Wall. A pleasure to explore year-round, many visit for the city's Christmas markets.
Berlin is not just the political capital of Germany but also its cultural center. The city succeeds as one of the most on-trend and vibrant cities in Europe - a melting-pot of great nightlife and music, a thriving art scene, impressive architecture and significant history recognised in-part by the iconic Berlin Wall. A visit to its now heavily graffitied remains is a must during any visit to the city, as is the magnificent Reichstag. A resilient and impressive building, the Reichstag affords spectacular views across the city from its roof terrace and signature glass dome.
Berlin is, of course, well known all over the world for its Christmas markets, and the hotels Scott Dunn work with are in a prime location for enjoying the festive atmosphere and shopping at Gendarmenmarkt. This historic market square is home to three of the city’s most impressive buildings: The Deutsche Dom, the Konzerthaus and the Franzozische Friedrichstadtkirche, making it the most picturesque of the city’s many magical markets, all 30 of which open a month or so before Christmas. A pleasure to explore year-round, Berlin is also home to many museums (on Museum Island), world-class Opera, fine dining and beautiful parkland; everything you would expect and more from a luxury city break.
