In the nearly three decades since the fall of the Wall, no other European city has undergone a greater transformation than Berlin. Bold designs by some of the world's most renowned architects including Frank Gehry, Daniel Libeskind, and Norman Foster have sparked the city's renaissance, while thought-provoking monuments have redefined her urban space. Immerse yourself in Berlin's boundless energy during a perfect week in this vibrant capital.
Experience her landmarks, old and new, and discover why Berlin so richly deserves your undivided attention. Highlights include the outstanding collections on Museum Island, a musical performance at one of the city's fine venues (pending schedules), and a visit to Sammlung Boros, an extraordinary private art collection housed in an above-ground former WWII-era bunker. Spend a day in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Potsdam, to see the Rococo palace of Sans Souci, built by King Frederick the Great as a summer residence, and the Neues Palais, preferred residence of William II.
Accommodations are at the luxurious Hotel Regent Berlin, steps from everything in the central Mitte district.
