How About Visiting Germany This Summer?
Germany is so much more than Oktoberfest. Although the very popular festival involving loads of beer and not-so-healthy food is the reason most foreigners visit Germany, there are plenty of other things to check out in this lovely European country.
If you are an EU citizen, it’s not even necessary to drop by the German embassy in London before planning your trip. You don’t need anything but your national ID card to travel within the EU and the Schengen space.
Especially if you are already in Europe, cheap flights to Germany are very easy to find, regardless of when you plan to visit the country. Many low cost carriers offer excellent deals on flights to various German cities.
Berlin should definitely be one of the cities to visit during your vacation in Germany. Berlin is a very cultural city. A lot of museums and churches wait to be discovered. But Berlin is also a trendy city, filled with excellent clubs and very good restaurants. Of course, don’t miss visiting a section of the Berlin Wall. The parades and festivals complete the city’s cosmopolite atmosphere.
Just remember to book one of the hotels in Berlin ahead of time, especially if you travel during the summer.
The price tag for a week in Germany? Let’s see: €77 per person for the roundtrip flight (London – Berlin on Ryanair) and at least €70 per night (2 persons) in a 2-star hotel in the middle of August. Don’t forget to account for the food and the sightseeing as well.
