Deals for ‘Wallpeckers’ and Enthusiasts of the East German Cuisine
25th Anniversary of the Fall of the Wall: Attractive Packages from Berlin's Hotels
Berlin, 10 July 2014 To peck your own piece of the original Berlin Wall is still possible even a quarter century after the fall of the Wall. The special ‘wallpecker’ package from the Westin Grand in Berlin-Mitte is just one of the numerous package deals being offered by the city's hotels to mark this memorable anniversary. Others include visits to the DDR Museum or a tour along the former course of the Wall in an authentic East German Trabant car. If you like, the Adlon Kempinski will pick you up from the airport in a Trabant.
And other hotels have come up with something special for those coming for conferences. Several are turning back the clock and dusting off menus last served more than 25 years ago. For example, the InterContinental Berlin is offering its "Wall Special" with Russisch Ei (a variant on a devilled egg) and Schopska salad from Bulgaria.
Some of the packages offered by visitBerlin's partner hotels are already available, whilst others will only be available as part of the anniversary weekend from 7–9 November. The weekend will be marked with many events, culminating in a spectacular light installation along the former course of the Wall.
Stadt und Land Reisen GmbH is offering a Bahnhit Berlin package including travel and hotel for the weekend. The package includes three nights in selected hotels (up to 5-star level) with a rail ticket within Germany on the ICE, plus a visit to the DDR museum for a total price from € 169. For more information, go to: Bahnhit.de.
