Experience the energy of reunited Berlin on this trip extension, from the River Spree to the remnants of the Wall.

Berlin
Produced by Small World Productions
This independent film features destinations you can visit on this trip extension.

Divided after World War II, blockaded by the Soviets, wedged apart by an imposing wall, and finally liberated by the sledgehammers of freedom fighters in 1989, Berlin is, once again, unified. In a three-night stay, you’ll discover gems of the city’s history from the 19th century through the Cold War and beyond. And you’ll revel in ample opportunity to explore at your leisure and see for yourself how this city has become a European cultural capital.

It's Included:
Accommodations 3 nights
Daily breakfasts
Included tour: Berlin
Dedicated services of a local Program Director
Gratuities for local guides and motorcoach drivers
All transfers
  • After breakfast, as you depart from your Holland & Belgium in Springtime tour, transfer to the airport for your flight. Arriving in Berlin, you’ll be met at the airport by a Grand Circle representative and assisted to your hotel. Later, enjoy a walk around the vicinity of your hotel and get acquainted with your fellow travelers.

    This evening, dinner is on your own.

  • Berlin is the symbolic and official capital of the “new Germany”—where the leaders in German design, technology, business, and arts thrive. While physical remnants and painful memories of its former division remain, the people of Berlin now live alongside one another without the oppressive limitations of the past.

    You’ll enjoy an enlightening tour of the exhilarating German capital, including iconic Brandenburg Gate, the triumphal arch built to represent Prussian power, tree-lined Unter den Linden boulevard, and the majestic Reichstag (Parliament building). History comes into view as your tour World War II airport locale at Templehof, the Cold War border Checkpoint Charlie, and sweeping Alexanderplatz, a plaza that served as the heart of East Germany and now reflects the era of reunification.

    You’ll enjoy time to explore on your own this afternoon. Perhaps you'll tour some of Berlin’s more than 170 museums, take a walk on the remaining portion of the wall itself, enjoy a ride to the glass dome at the top of the Reichstag, or visit the Olympic stadium where American track-and-field star Jesse Owens incensed Hitler by winning four gold medals in 1936.

    Enjoy dinner on your own this evening.

  • Continue discovering Berlin at your own pace today.

    Or join us for an optional tour to nearby Potsdam, stopping en route at Glienike Bridge, the so-called “Bridge of Spies,” known for its use as the setting for prisoner swaps during the Cold War. Then continue on to Potsdam, home to Cecilienhof Palace—which is part of the Palaces and Parks of Potsdam and Berlin UNESCO World Heritage Site. The last palace built by the Hohenzollern dynasty, the Tudor-influenced manse boasts an imposing exterior, with 55 chimneys topping a brick-and-oak frame that outlines six courtyards. It was here that Winston Churchill and Harry Truman hammered out the details of the Japanese surrender in World War II. After visiting the palace, stroll through the baroque manicured gardens of Sanssouci Park.

    Toast your Berlin discoveries in a Farewell Drink with your fellow travelers, before enjoying final dinner on your own this evening.

    • Meals included:

    Today, you’ll transfer to the airport for your return flight home.
