Berlin’s historic opera house, the Staatsoper unter den Linden, is now open again and giving performances alongside the city’s other two opera houses – the Deutsche Oper and the Komische Oper. Add to these two major concert halls, including the Philharmonie, home of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, and an array of internationally important museums and galleries of the first order, it is hardly surprising that the city leads the field among the world’s finest cultural destinations.

The Itinerary for both holidays:

We stay at the 4 star Marriott Hotel off Potsdamer Platz, just five minutes’ walk from the Philharmonie. The hotel is stylish with well appointed bedrooms, bars, a restaurant and an indoor swimming pool. With so much on offer, we have tried to achieve a well balanced programme of excursions and performances. Visits to the city’s two leading art collections are included – the Alte National Museum and the Gemäldergalerie. We spend more time on Museum Island with visits to David Chipperfield’s newly opened James Simon Galerie, the £100 million centrepiece of the plan to redesign Berlin’s cultural acropolis. The elegant colonnade leads the visitor to Chipperfield’s redesigned Neues Museum. We go to Potsdam, once the residence of the Prussian kings and one of the glories of Baroque architecture, with magnificent landscaped parks. Visits to the towering Deutsche Historisches Museum, Check Point Charlie and the Berlin Wall Museum serve to remind us of the city’s recent history.
