BERLIN HOTEL PACKAGES
Based upon our 2009 experience we are offering some of the hotel options that we used then. In particular the very highly rated Berlin Melia hotel which our clients so enjoyed back in 2009. We have our four hotels in two locations as post-1989, and the demise of the famous Wall, Berlin effectively has two centres. The Berlin Melia is in the historic centre in East Berlin which is now once again the heart of the city of which Friederichstrasse station is a major transport hub very close to all major historical landmarks. We also have a three hotel “hub” within 150m of each other in the West Berlin Kurfurstendamm district: this is still a significant part of the city but not the centre it once was in the 1980s of the previously divided city – hence hotels are now less expensive than the East Berlin location. All hotels are well positioned for travelling to the stadium in the far west of the city: with the excellent rail and transportation network all clients are within 25-30 mins of the competition venue.

OPTIONAL EXCURSIONS PROGRAMME
All of our event packages include a guided Berlin Bus Tour with our “Berlin Grand Bus Tour” on Mon 6th Aug a particularly comprehensive excursion. Hence our optional tours will focus on those aspects of Berlin that are more esoteric or excursions to the regions surrounding Berlin.
Our options will fit in with the stadium competition schedule as standard tourism market options do not fit into the “sightseeing windows” between sessions or make allowance for eating on those days when there are two sessions. As with 2009 we will seek to arrange departures and drop-offs at the stadium tailor-made to the needs of fans. As we have such a regular client base with many that will have booked excursions whilst in Berlin in 2009 we will offer a wide selection of options including some new ones – all clients will receive this information by early 2018 to then be booked in advance of the championships.
