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.

SANDRA

Swansea Couple
The two nights in Berlin coincided with the the Festival of Lights, and an optional coach trip to see this would have been very welcome. We were not given a contact number from the guide, which we couldn't understand, as all other escorted holidays we have been on - this was the first thing we were told. It would have been extremely helpful if we had known prior to leaving, that not many places in Germany accept a credit card. We found this unbelievable, and put us under a little stress.

Not enough time at Colditz caused by going to Liepzeig which again there was not enough time to do anything but have a coffee and look at a few shopstime would have been better spent at Colditz to save the rush many other passengers said the same

Well arranged, everything went to plan, guides were knowledgeable friendly and helpful.
Hotels were well located, clean tidy and friendly staff.
The Newmarket guide provided reliable and informative advice on where to eat, best ways of traveling from the hotel.
The holiday was relaxing, educational, but most importantly enjoyable with happy memories
Have no hesitation in recommending this holiday.

Canterbury Single traveller
I was very impressed by the way everything was pieced together, starting with the arrival at the airport, being met by our tour guide. Piece of mind was given straight away. The tour guides of each city were spot on and very very interesting. I would certainly to another trip with newmarket and recommend them to anyone.

Solihull west midlands Couple
Berlin hotel was appalling,more like an hostel,area was dismal,felt as if dumped there,streets at night felt unsafe as people looking in bins and drinking,this a view held by other members of our group,left at Brandenburg gate to fill the rest of our day and night as we pleased !
Dresden hotel was better,but too far out of city,yet again tour ,then left to get back to hotel and amuse ourselves for the rest of the day,we ate at the hotel restaurant with all the other coach members,no where else to go.I had just returned from your Belfast Titanic trip ...Great.my U3A group wanted to try Berlin next year.no thank you couldn't wait to get home .
