Flights to Berlin, Germany

Best Time to Visit Berlin
Berlin is known for its long, harsh winters, so those not fond of the freezing cold should avoid visiting from October to March when the city becomes a land of snow and ice. The warmer half of the year from April to September offers great holiday weather throughout, though. Besides that, an abundance of festivals and events also take place in Berlin in this period - music-enthusiasts will love Mozart May, an entire month where Mozart’s music is given centre stage, whilst the Carnival of Culture street parade and Berlin Fashion Week both take place in July. Not forgetting, of course, one of Berlin’s key tourist highlights - the International Berlin Beer Festival, which usually happens in August.
Things to do in Berlin
If in Berlin, a visit to what remains of the Berlin Wall is an absolute must-do. Far from a simple barrier of brick and mortar, the Berlin Wall was once the symbol of the ‘Iron Curtain’ during the Cold War, representing a great divide in Europe’s ideals. The socialist East Berlin was on one side, and the West Berliners on the other. The divide has since been eased, but the memory of the great devastation caused by the War and the Wall remains intact.
