Visit Berlin, the vibrant German capital. Here some 50 Christmas markets offer traditional festive wares, seasonal delicacies and unusual Christmas goods, and in some cases boast attractions from fairground rides to ice-rinks and even a ski-slope.
Single rooms are available for a supplement. For single travellers, one piece of hold luggage is included.
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.
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.
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.
