Finally arrived!
We went to Berlin for the 2nd May Bank Holiday weekend (26May-28May). We went to Berlin with Easyjet; it was about £120 per person (a little pricey due to peak period) and the flight time is a little inconvenience because it departed at 6.30am, and check-in time is from 4.30am so we took the last train from London Bridge to Luton airport (about 1hour). We got there by 1.30am and slept on the benches for few hours.

There are three airports in Berlin, which are Schoenefled, Tegel and Tempelhof. We went to Berlin Schoenefled with Easyjet and this is the furthest airport from town centre and to the hotel - Grand Hotel Esplanade, it took us about 1 hour. The closest airport is Berlin Tempelhof it would be about 20 minutes from town and 30minutes from Berlin Tegel Airport to town.

We manage to squash a lot of site seeing during this 3 days visit:
1. Brandenburg Gate
2. Sony Center
3. The Berlin Wall (the left-over)
4. The Story of Berlin
5. Check-point Charlie
6. Jewish museum
7. TV tower
8. Red Town Hall
9. Berlin Cathedral Church
10. Pergamon Museum
11. Berlin Parliament Building
12. Berlin Underworlds, bunkers
13. Berlin’s Central Railway Station
