For a longer journey, take a look at our 8-night Beyond the Iron Curtain to Prague holiday which ends over the border in the Czech Republic.
 
This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided cultural journey by rail
  • discover the dynamic German cities of Berlin, Leipzig and Dresden
  • trace the timeline of an historical and cultural revolution
  • seek out hidden corners and iconic sights on foot
 
Few cities have experienced such fluctuating fortunes as those of the former East Germany. But Berlin, Leipzig and Dresden have each emerged from the cloak of the Iron Curtain to become fully rejuvenated, and are now more culturally enriching than ever.
Berlin is a city that is forever in the process of becoming, never being, and so lives more powerfully in the imagination.
     
'Berlin – Imagine a City' (Rory Maclean)

Journeying between these famous cities by rail, you not only discern a palpable sense of history, but can also chart the highs and lows of the past while marvelling at the architectural and cultural treasures that had remained hidden for so long. Using our self-guided walking routes (and included City Cards, entitling you to free or discounted visits) in each city, you are in for an enthralling trip.
