Trip to Berlin

Thursday 6th June @ 8:00 am to Thursday 13th June @ 11:30 pm

Update 29th May

Nearly time to go! We currently have 14 intrepid travellers who have booked travel and accommodation. Some are going by train, some flying from either Gatwick or London City, and several different places to stay have been booked.

You can join us right up to the last minute if you can get the bookings – let me know if you have a sudden craving for currywurst in its native habitat and I can let you know everybody’s plans.


Here’s a date for your diary:

We’re going to Berlin!

Ireen and I are going for a week, travelling out on Thursday 6th June and back on Thursday 13th. Please join us for all or part of that time.

Why Berlin?

Berlin is a fascinating city and well worth your time. There’s plenty to see and do – historic sites, museums, art galleries, boat trips, and, of course, tremendous nightlife for us youngsters. Not to mention the currywurst. Public transport is excellent and cheap, though it’s also very walkable and even cyclable, being mostly flat.

There will be a mixture of group, small group and individual activities, to be driven by the interests of those going.


At this point the only arrangement made is our travel. We’re going by train, which turns out to be one of the more expensive options – Eurostar St Pancras-Brussels, then Brussels-Cologne-Berlin. Other travel options include bus and plane –  a good reference for travel options is Rome2Rio. As far as my research goes, weekend travel is the most expensive, while Thursday less so.


To be arranged.

Ireen and I have made our own arrangements, with my sister who lives there – very centrally, near the Cathedral. For the rest of you, there are many hostels to choose from, and of course hotels, AirBnB etc to consider.

What Now?

Please let me know if you’re interested in this trip so we can gauge the demand for accommodation etc. More plans will be made!
