Discover Hidden Gems
Take a Walking Tour
Berlin is a city that is best explored on foot, and taking a walking tour is a great way to discover its hidden gems. There are many tours available, including historical tours, street art tours, and food tours. Walking tours give you the opportunity to see the city up close, interact with locals, and learn about its fascinating history and culture. Many hidden gems can be found in my app BertaWalks.
Enjoy the Outdoors in Berlin
With spring in full swing, Easter is the perfect time to enjoy the great outdoors in Berlin. Whether you're cycling along the River Spree, strolling through the Tiergarten, or having a picnic in the park, there are plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy. You can also take a boat tour of the city's waterways or just visit one of the many beer gardens that open during Easter.
My special tip for outdoor adventures on Easter would be the Pfaueninsel, or Peacock Island. It is a beautiful island located in the Havel River, southwest of Berlin. It's a perfect destination for a relaxing and peaceful day trip during Easter holidays. You only have to check the opening hours of the island and the ferry service in advance! The Havel River and the nearby Wannsee Lake also offer many opportunities for boating, swimming, and water sports.
In conclusion, Easter vacations in Berlin offer a wealth of activities for visitors of all ages and interests. Whether you want to explore the city's museums, attend an Easter market, or simply enjoy the outdoors, there is always something to do in this vibrant and exciting city.
