From Deal

What’s Included

Direct flights to Berlin from Glasgow International

Comfortable city centre hotel

Great city break destination

Three night stay with breakfast

Colourful Christmas markets

No credit card fees

The Germans have a decent claim to inventing the Christmas we know and love. Prince Albert introduced the idea of Christmas trees in the 19th century and every British town centre in December now offers up its own version of pretzels, glühwein, oompah tunes and a sausage sizzle.

Our Teutonic neighbours still do it best though, and few better than those stylish Berliners. Today’s Big Deal offers the opportunity to experience a little of the Berlin festive magic with a three night break in this vibrant German city.

Captivating capital

The Big Deal, exclusive to 5pm customers, flies you to Berlin, a stylish and historic city that offers atmospheric neighbourhoods, hip bohemian shops and bars and, seeing as it’s the season, gloriously romantic Christmas markets.

A three-night B&B stay in a comfortable modern 3 star central hotel provides a superb festive break, with the opportunity to soak up the atmosphere of one of Europe’s great cities.

The Big Deal offers return flights with Ryanair from Glasgow International, with luggage allowance, and three nights B&B accommodation, based on two sharing, in the 3.5 star Hotel Altberlin.

Central accommodation

The 3.5 star Hotel Altberlin enjoys a central location on Postdamer Platz, within walking distance of major attractions such as the Brandenburg Gate, National Gallery and Wintergarten Variete as well as a great variety of shops and restaurants.

Praised for its atmosphere and character, the hotel retains some early 20th-century period touches. Rooms are furnished in a comfortable style, with en suite bathroom, heating and air conditioning, mini bar and satellite TV.

A buffet breakfast is included in the offer. The restaurant also offers traditional regional German cuisine, making it a popular choice with local diners and visitors.

Nearby transport links include Potsdamer Platz and Mendelsohn Bartholdy Park underground stations, while bus routes M48 and M85 stop directly outside the hotel.

Berlin’s Christmas markets

The festive season kicks off in the German capital around the beginning of November. Right by your hotel, on Potsdamer Platz, Winter World creates a 70 metre toboggan run as the centrepiece of a festive wonderland, with numerous stalls selling traditional treats and a beautiful 180 year-old Austrian ski chalet.

The Potsdamer Platz Christmas Market opens on 24 November with stalls selling crafts, leather and textile products, baked treats and plenty of potential gifts.

Smaller markets and festive shows take place all over the city, as Berliners get into the Christmas spirit.

Berlin highlights

If you can tear yourselves away from all the seasonal frivolity for a while, Berlin has plenty of iconic sights. From Sir Norman Foster’s ultramodern Reichstag design to the hipster neighbourhood of Neukölln with its cool bars, shops and clubs, Berlin has plenty of options to fill your days.

Guest reviews

The Hotel Altberlin has impressed plenty of guests on TripAdvisor. Recent reviews include the following:

‘Bedroom was spacious, high ceilings, coffee machine and huge bathroom. Good variety at breakfast. If you want a small hotel with charm and a change from large modern places, then this is the place to be.’

‘The staff were the best I have known. They were friendly and helpful. They were knowledgeable about the area and helped us get around when we needed directions.’

Ideal gift getaway

A Berlin city break is the ideal way to get into the Christmas spirit before facing the demands of the festive season.

With direct flights and conveniently located accommodation, today’s Big Deal puts you right in the heart of this energetic city, with a Winter World on your doorstep. Just bring us back a pretzel.
