Berlin at New Year - particularly this New Year will, we hope, be a really excting prospect and we are working on a programme of performances and events. The highlight of our visit will be a performance of La Boheme at the Staatsoper Unter den Linden conducted by Domingo Hidoyan with superstar soprano Sonya Yoncheva as Mimi. We are also planning to include concerts at the Philharmonie, a private recital and dinner atop the iconic Reichstag as well as an orientation of the city and free time to enjoy the lights, shops and atmosphere of Kurfürstendamm.
We plan to stay at the 4* Dorint Hotel Kurfürstendamm. Designed by award-winning architect Jan Kleihues, the hotel is located in the heart of the City West at the start of the legendary shopping mile Kurfürstendamm and just a short distance from the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, Berlin Zoo and the KaDeWe department store. We have reserved spacious 'Comfort' King rooms which feature walk-in closet, separate bath & walk-in shower, bose sound system and nespresso machine. Full buffet breakfast is included each morning.
At the time of writing (July 2021) we still have many uncertainties with covid-19 and so we are asking you to Register Now with a holding deposit of £100 and we will review all aspects of the tour in early October at which time we hope to be able to reach a clear decision as to whether we can proceed or not. We will write then with the full and final details and ask for full payment and at that point you can decide whether to proceed or cancel (with refund of your holding deposit if you have to cancel).
At the moment, we plan to use scheduled flights with Lufthansa which will mean a change of planes en route (for guests from Manchester, Birmingham and some other regional airports). British Airways fly from Heathrow. If you prefer to fly easyjet or Ryanair direcly to Berlin we will offer you the option to take a reduction in cost and make your own travel arrangements and meet us at the hotel.
