Jump into The Big B

GERMANY’S DIVINELY DECADENT CAPITAL delivers a vibrant mix of grit and glamour having made it through numerous revolutions, Hitler’s rise to power and the Cold War. Awash with legendary monuments and tangible history, it’s also a supremely vibrant city known for its fabulous food, intense party scene and super-stylish inhabitants.

Escapes- banks of the river

PERCHED ON THE BANKS of the River Spree, Berlin Cathedral was modelled on St Peter’s Basilica in Rome, and serves as a house of worship, museum and concert hall. The showy Renaissance-style interior homes a marble and onyx altar, 7,269-pipe Sauer organ and elaborate royal sarcophagi. Climb to the top (267 steps) for stunning city views.

Escapes- glam on

GET YOUR GLAM ON at the infamous Kit Kat Club, one of Berlin’s most hedonistic hangouts. DJs deliver techno music of all types and there are four dance floors, plus an outdoor pool. There’s also a strict dress code: think 21st-century Sally Bowles – fetish, latex, leather and avant-garde.

Escapes- opulent

STEP INTO THE OPULENT world of Prussian royalty at Charlottenburg Palace, the largest palace in Berlin. Admire the lavish Baroque/ Rococo architecture, stroll through the picturesque palace gardens and explore the sumptuously decorated rooms. Know that concerts and cultural events are held throughout the year at the Palace Orangery.

Escapes- bestkown

ONE OF GERMANY’S BESTKNOWN LANDMARKS, the Brandenburg Gate has served as a symbol of both the division of Germany and the country’s reunification. An 18th-century neoclassical monument, completed in 1791, it is composed of 12 Doric columns and features a quadriga statue depicting the goddess of victory bearing a symbol of peace.

Escapes- unesco

A UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE Site, Museum Island is a must-see, home to five staggering museums. Find architecture from ancient worlds at the Pergamonmuseum; classical antiquities at the Altes Museum; Egyptian relics (including the Nefertiti Bust) at the Neues Museum; 19thcentury European art at the Alte Nationalgalerie; and medieval sculpture at the Bode-Museum.

Escapes- art and history

ART AND HISTORY COLLIDE at the East Side Gallery, the longest remaining section of the Berlin Wall. Stretching for over a kilometre, this open-air gallery showcases vibrant murals and graffiti art painted by artists from around the world, each conveying powerful messages of hope, freedom and unity.
