Fly to Berlin and transfer to your hotel. Berlin's legendarily efficient U-Bahn (underground), trams and buses bring everything within easy reach - from the glitz of Kurfuerstendamm (or simply Ku'damm) to the bright lights of Potsdamer Platz and the bars and restaurants dotted around the city centre.
A local guide will introduce you to Berlin on this morning's bus tour - see Norman Foster's startling Reichstag building, which rises up close to the majestic Brandenburg Gate and the wooded acres of the Tiergarten.
After the tour, you may like to join our optional trip to the top of the giant TV Tower (Fernsehturm), from where the former course of the Wall can still be traced.
For the rest of the day you're free to savour the aromas of gluhwein, almonds and sweet Christmas biscuits as you wander Berlin's wonderful Christmas markets - from the Tyrolean wonderland of the 'Winterwelt' on Potsdamer Platz to the traditional stalls nestled in the shadow of the ruined towers of Kaiser Wilhelm-Gedachniskirche. In the evening there'll be the chance to join an optional tour to see the city and its monuments illuminated beneath the night sky.
Spend another day exploring Berlin and its other colourful Christmas markets. Alternatively, join our optional excursion to the great Prussian city of Potsdam, with its UNESCO-listed Sans Souci palace, and the famous Schloss Cecilienhof, which witnessed the post-WW2 division of Germany by the victorious Allies.
This evening, enjoy another chance to join the Berliners 'on the town', or to continue exploring the markets, which stay open well into the evening.
Transfer back to the airport for your flight home, taking with you wonderful memories of this special festive break.
Hotel transfer times
The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately one hour.
Combining hotel transfers
We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.
If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.
The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair or electric scooter, please let us know as soon as possible so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.
