Guten tag! The charisma of Berlin is on show on a guided tour. See the scars of World War II and the Cold War in the city’s landmarks. Visit Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag Building and the last remnants of the wall. With an afternoon free, why not explore Museum Island, Charlottenburg Palace or sip a pilsner on a grassy hill? Tonight, how about joining the locals at one of the boutique bars?

HOT TIP!

Do as locals do and get stuck into a chimney cake, a doughnut-like pastry.

Nicknamed the City of a Thousand Spires, everywhere you look, Gothic, baroque, Renaissance and art nouveau styles dot Prague’s magical skyline. Your guided tour today begins at Prague Castle, the largest walled fortress on the planet, before making your way to St Vitus’s Cathedral. Then, you'll cross over Vltava River on the iconic Charles Bridge, before moving through the narrow cobbled lanes and hidden courtyards of the Old Town.

Now familiar with the city, enjoy a day at your own pace! Much awaits within the Jewish Quarter, or be as one at the John Lennon Wall – a tribute to the former Beatle and peace campaigner. This evening, why not learn about Prague’s long-held passion for beer? Then, perhaps indulge in traditional Czech food, such as pork chilli, sauerkraut, dumplings and lots of gravy.
