24 hours in Berlin

Berlin is one of the most exciting cities on the continent, and it’s no surprise that it forms a central part of many Interrail journeys. With the amount of nightlife, culture and history on offer it’s unlikely that 24 hours in Berlin cover everything that you have in mind. But at the very least it’ll be enough to have you planning a return journey soon.

Travel back in time at a disused airfield

Take a post-lunch break with a visit to Flughafen Tempelhof, a fascinating airfield that’s been converted into a massive park. You can even walk along the runways and wander between abandoned aircrafts. Once you’re done at the park, it might make sense to head back to your accommodation and freshen up, particularly if you’re looking to experience a bit of Berlin’s nightlife.
