Berlin Vacations: Vibrance & History
From beneath the rubble of the Cold War wall, Berlin has risen as a youthful, creative, and vibrant German city. See the remains of the Berlin Wall, snap photos at the Brandenburg Gate, and pause for reflection at the Berlin Holocaust Memorial. Visit Museum Island by day and party the night away immersed in the city’s youthful electronic music scene. Whether you’re looking to delve into Berlin’s creative spirit or want to explore the city’s Cold War past, your Liberty Travel vacation consultant can craft you a Berlin vacation package that’s just your style.
