Budget design hotels in Berlin – your Motel One
Years of separation into East and West gave the German capital a unique character. Today, it is a young and creative metropolis bustling with events, a dynamic start-up culture and an international art scene. Of course, it is also the home of two football clubs – Hertha and Union –, delicious döner kebab and currywurst, and the notoriously direct Berlin dialect.
- the Reichstag building near the new central station
- the Museum Island
- the “City West” with its Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, Kurfürstendamm avenue and the KaDeWe department store
- the remnants of the Berlin Wall, e.g. at Checkpoint Charlie
- the Alexanderplatz square with its soaring TV tower
- and, last but not least, the famous Brandenburg Gate
You’ll need more than one night to take in all these highlights. And the list is far from exhaustive. There's also the Bellevue Palace, Potsdamer Platz, the Berlin Philharmonic, Nikolaiviertel, Hackesche Höfe, East Side Gallery and countless museums. Each of our design hotels is situated right around the corner from something exciting.
On top of all its cultural highlights, Berlin is surprisingly green and full of attractive parks such as the Tiergarten – perfect for an outdoor breakfast. For a slightly different green space, head to Tempelhofer Feld: the former airport now a huge public park right in the city centre. The old runways are playgrounds to wind sport enthusiasts such as street kiters, while the grassland in between is a protected biotope. Typically Berlin!
The different districts of the city all have their own, distinct character: from the elegance of the old west in Charlottenburg to modern art and design in trendy Berlin-Mitte, from the lively alternative scenes of Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain to the multicultural ambiance of Neukölln. Each area is a city in its own right. A leisurely walk through the streets of the capital will take you past historical architecture, original street art and many other influences.
