You don't have to love beer to love Berlin, but it helps! With a reputation as one of the most liberal cities in the world, Berlin is the perfect hen do destination for an amazing weekend of fun and non-stop partying. A Berlin hen weekend is perfect for the funky, edgy, urban hen that loves modern style and hardcore fun. You'll see other hens and stags all over the place, on beer bikes, in the beer cellars and hitting the clubs in the early hours, so you'll be in good company as you head out to conquer the streets! And there is some much to do here, you will be spoilt for choice when choosing a Berlin hen weekend activity.
You can't avoid getting sucked into the history of the city when you are on your hen do. A guided trip around Berlin is an ideal start to your hen weekend in Berlin, it will take you round iconic sites like the Reichstag Building, the Brandenburg Gate, and Checkpoint Charlie. You can also check out places like the remains of the Gestapo Headquarters, trample over parts of the city still ruined from the Russian bombardment of 1945, and then ogle the Bugatti showroom on Friedrichstrasse. Once you've fed the brain on your hen weekend, it's time to feed the stomach. Berlin's food is hearty and there's plenty of international fare, the beer is some of the best in the world, but you can also find delightfully sweet (and inexpensive) white wines from the Rhine region to sip while the sun goes down.
It's only two hours from London Gatwick to fly into Berlin and flights are absurdly cheap to reach one of Europe's premier capital cities. Do your homework and book in advance and you won't have to pay more than £50 from airports like Bristol, Luton, and Manchester. EasyJet fly from Stansted to Berlin Schonefeld for around £45. Some of the sights to see are fairly far from each other, but public transportation when you are on your Berlin hen weekend will be easy to use (and German, so always right on time!), and the city is also very bike-friendly.
Berlin is Europe's most populous city (3.4 million). Mostly, locals are friendly and have good English, so meeting awesome new people on your hen weekend in Berlin won't be hard. For prime girl-time relaxation, slip over to the spa for a thorough pampering or wander through the nearby Grunewald forest on foot or bicycle. For the dedicated shopaholic, a tour through Europe's largest department store is a must, and for the junk-junkie, a bargain-hunt through the massive Mauer Park flea market is guaranteed to produce some treasures. But if wondering the city isn't your thing, get organised with one of our Berlin hen weekend packages.
If you fancy a more intense hen do activity in Berlin, paintballing, clay pigeon shooting, pistol shooting, or the stag do favorite the beer bike which lets you tour the city whilst continuing to quaff. Or head out in that icon of East German engineering incompetence, the Trabant. Better still, jump into a Hummer limo complete with its own bar and cruise the city for your hen party weekend (with some handsome dancers to keep you company, perhaps?). You'll feel like stars pulling up to the clubs for VIP entry and all-night dancing, there are no laws on closing times, so you can literally party till the sun comes up, (and then some) at famous clubs like the SO36 where David Bowie and Iggy Pop used to hang out being cool. If you're into your serious raunch, the KitKatClub is definitely the place to get your freak on with like-minded partyers. You'll make some pretty serious memories and have lots of chances to embarrass the hen on your weekend in Berlin!
