When is the best time to fly to Berlin?

Berlin is a sleek, cosmopolitan city, with numerous historic sights and museums, as well as amazing architecture, shopping, dining and an eclectic music scene. It’s worth a visit at any time of the year, but does experience large swings in temperature from season to season. If you visit between May – September, temperatures are hot, soaring to above 30 degrees Celsius. Many tourists visit Berlin during the summer, which means that hotels are booked early and flights more expensive. During spring, from March – May, temperatures are moderate, with highs ranging from 8 – 19 degrees Celsius. September and October are possibly the best months to visit Berlin, because the summer crowds vanish, but the weather is still quite warm, around 13 – 19 degrees Celsius. November through February can be downright chilly and there’s always a chance of snow, but if you don’t mind single digit temperatures, you can find great deals on hotels and flights. It can get a bit busier during the holiday season, but it’s worth visiting then to see and shop Berlin’s famous Christmas markets.

Best things to do and see in Berlin

Things to do and places of interest in Berlin

Berlin boasts a dizzying mix of old and new, its rich history juxtaposed against the avant-garde, with a bit of a cheeky attitude. Berlin is widely regarded as Europe’s coolest city. Here are a few suggestions for your Berlin itinerary.

  • Visit Checkpoint Charlie, an infamous part of the Berlin Wall, steeped in fascinating and disturbing history, as the most famous crossing point between East and West Germany.
  • Spend some time at the Holocause Memorial, a sombre place designed by architect Peter Eisenmann and opened in 2005, to memorialize murdered Jewish people.
  • See the iconic Brandenburg Gate, Berlin’s only surviving historical city gate, which once symbolised Berlin’s division into East and West, and now serves as a symbol of reunification.
  • Another famous Berlin landmark, the Reichstag, is a must-see. The seat of the German Parliament may be toured, but is often horrendously busy, so book your tour ahead of time.
  • Visit the Unesco Heritage site, Museum Island, with five conveniently adjacent museums, all located on an easily accessible “island” along the river Spree.
  • For a change of pace, visit the Ballhaus Berlin, an old fashioned dance hall where nostalgia meets modern technology, with events such as tango nights, swing evenings, hit parties, burlesque adventures, and soul and funk dance nights.
  • Stroll along Prenzlauer Berg’s Mauerpark (open daily from 8am-sunset) where on Sundays, you’ll find a giant flea market.
