We seem to be a nation of city break fans these days as more and more of the world’s landmarks have become easily accessible thanks to budget airlines and easy online booking engines. Why not take a look at some of these German cities for an early spring break and there are some great deals this month from talkholiday.

Germany is a beautiful and unique country of contrasts, which makes for a varied yet exciting holiday. Unspoilt countryside and breath-taking views can be found on the shores of Lake Constance, which borders Austria and Switzerland. By contrast, the hustle and bustle of the big cities such as Munich, Berlin and Hamburg offer a vibrant nightlife and an abundance of sightseeing.

Berlin :

Although one of Europe’s most exciting cities, Berlin has a fragile history and stark reminders of the past will surround you. However, a vibrant nightlife and cutting edge architecture sit quite harmoniously alongside such historical landmarks.
