Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Berlin and transfer to your hotel. After check-in, head out for a first look at the city. Berlin's legendary, efficient U-Bahn (underground), trams and buses bring everything within easy reach - from the restored 18th-century Nikolaiviertel district to the courtyards of the ultra-trendy Hackesche Hofe market, full of shops, bars and restaurants.

Day Two

Get to know Berlin on this morning's guided tour. See the city's symbol of reunification - Norman Foster's startling Reichstag building - which rises close to the majestic Brandenburg Gate and the wooded acres of the Tiergarten. Stroll down Unter den Linden, past the great Staatsoper, towards Schlossplatz, and see beautiful Gendarmenmarkt - home to two stunning cathedrals and the city's new Konzerthaus.

Delve deeper into Berlin's turbulent past at the 'Checkpoint Charlie' museum, see the Olympic Stadium, or enjoy shopping your way down the famous 'Ku'damm'. There's simply an unending array of things to see and do.

Day Three

This morning we'll journey south across the Elbe to historic Leipzig. This former home of Goethe, Bach and Schiller, university seat, and vibrant trade-fair venue epitomises the new Germany. Visit Europe's oldest coffee-shop, or stroll through the arcades and courtyards of the city's Altstadt.

Later this afternoon, we'll continue to the pretty town of Colditz, overlooked by the iconic Renaissance castle turned WW2 POW camp. An included guided tour will bring to life tales of Allied ingenuity and escape, before you continue on to Dresden for a further two nights.

Day Four

Discover Dresden on this morning's guided tour. In the south bank's Altstadt, the stupendous Frauenkirche lay in ruins for almost 50 years after WW2, and the Residenzschloss (former seat of Saxon kings) still houses a priceless jewel collection. On the northern bank, leafy Neustadt and neighbouring Aussere Neustadt brim with life, and are also home to several fascinating museums.

Day Five

Say "auf Wiedersehen" to Dresden and Saxony, and transfer back to Berlin to board your flight home.

A most enjoyable four day break. The coaches were comfortable and the drivers excellent. The tour guides in Germany were very good and our holiday courier was fine.

The guided tours in Berlin and Dresden were excellent and the organisational aspects were very well executed.
The location of the Dresden Park Inn hotel was very convenient and the hotel itself was perfect. However in contrast to this the Tiergarten hotel in Berlin was both inconveniently situated in terms of access to the city centre and of a considerably lower standard. Our room was tiny and cramped with poorly designed bathroom facilities.

A great way to see a few cities in a few days.
If you arrive on an early flight and have the energy, go and explore Berlin on foot - we managed to briefly visit most of the main attractions plus the TV tower (booked online before our trip). The guided tours on the Tuesday then gave us more information on the sites and answered any questions we had. We then had the Tuesday afternoon free to travel out to the Olympic Stadium (booked online the evening before - English speaking tours are limited).
Tip - If you want to go inside the Reichstag you'll need to book by email well before your trip.
Leipzig was beautiful, we'd have liked longer to explore. Colditz was a moving experience. Dresden had enough to see in the time we were there. We were lucky enough to be invited to join some locals at their table when the restaurant we visited was full; had a lovely evening with the 17 year old Dresdener translating into English for her parents - they, having been brought up when East Germany existed had learnt Russian at school rather than English- proof of how things changed in one generation!
