Check in at Belfast International Airport for the flight to Berlin Schoenfeld Airport arriving mid-morning. Once you have checked through security your Travel Solutions tour manager will meet and greet you at the departure gate before your flight departs. On arrival you will be transferred by coach to your hotel minutes from the Alexanderplatz where you will find a massive Christmas market dominated by a huge pyramid festooned with thousands of lights under the iconic television tower, an excellent place to soak up the Christmas spirit. Then your tour manager can take you on an orientation tour to point out the best markets and help you discover the layout of the iconic city of Berlin.
After breakfast you are free to enjoy Berlin again and explore more Christmas Markets – the choice is incredible. Enjoy amazing views of the Brandenburg Gate and the Potsdamer Platz from the huge ferris wheel at one of the most charming markets, the Weihnachtz and just a short stroll away there’s more holiday fun to be had on the rollercoasters and bumper cars amid the traditional stalls at the Wintertraum am Alexa.
You know it’s the festive season when the area around the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church starts smelling of roasted almonds, hot chocolate and mulled wine. Feel part of the fairy-tale at Charlottenburg Palace, a sumptuous backdrop for the classy Christmas market in City West, an elaborate light installation bathes the market, the palace, and the decorative fence in a romantic glow. It’s the perfect spot to experience the idyllic atmosphere among delightful stalls selling nostalgic Christmas crafts such as nativity figures, tree decorations, and traditional German Christmas sweets like stolen, spritz biscuits and marzipan loaves. Really get into the Christmas mood listening to the choirs singing in one of the most beautiful squares in the city, the historic Gendarmenmarkt , popular for its handmade products while “Winterwelt” transforms the Potsdamer Platz into a gigantic winter wonderland – prepare yourself to ride down Europe’s largest toboggan – why not hang around and join the locals for the live DJ and après-ski party in the evening?
This morning after breakfast and checking out we’ll transfer to Berlin Schonefeld airport for the lunchtime flight back to Belfast
