Six-Day Getaway to Berlin
April 22 - 28, 2021
from $3,295 from Washington, DC
This year's Getaway program returns to Berlin, one of Europe's most dynamic cities. The W&L Traveller's Six-Day Getaway tours offer extraordinary value and convenience. Each international adventure includes roundtrip airfare from Dulles International in Washington, D.C. (other gateways are available). The hotels are conveniently located and rated four-star, and each package includes guided tours, a welcome reception, two dinners, two lunches and full breakfast daily, with some free time available for independent pursuits. Each program is led by a W&L host or faculty member, with an excellent manager-guide serving each group throughout the itinerary. Busy people looking for short-term holidays will find just enough to satisfy their urge to get away and yet enjoy a substantive experience with enduring value.
A major city in the heart of continental Europe, Berlin presents a dazzlingly new image of Germany to the world. No other major city in Europe has seen more change in the past century: World Wars I and II, the Cold War, the Berlin Wall and the successful reunification of two politically opposed regimes.
Berlin has always been a center for the arts, from the time of the Prussian kings to the Roaring Twenties. Every art form has shaped the capital throughout the centuries. But new developments and the city's revitalized architecture have made the rebirth of the city even more dramatic. In addition to the impressive variety of historical and modern attractions of this dynamic capital city, our itinerary includes a half-day excursion to Potsdam for the legendary Sansssouci Palace of Frederick II. Our hotel is centrally located within easy walking distance of the Brandenburg Gate and Museum Island. Consider this a further incentive to join us for a discovery of why Berlin is now the third-most popular European destination after London and Paris.
