Looking for somewhere fascinating and fun to escape to for a short city break this winter? Few cities boast the perfect blend of culture, history and nightlife quite like Berlin, Germany’s vibrant capital city. Boasting Michelin-starred restaurants, 5-star hotels and just a short flight from London, it’s the ideal city to charter a private aircraft to for a winter weekend as unique as your mode of transport.

You can make the very most of Berlin, even on a weekend stopover; delving into the city’s poignant history, exploring the local art scene and experiencing a taste of the Berlin clubbing scene. Once you’ve arrived at the BAS FBO at Berlins Schönefeld airport, you just need to grab your bags, jump in your pre-booked car and get going.

Head out into the city and discover beautiful Berlin. A trip here wouldn’t be complete without visiting the Berlin Wall Memorial, which divided both the city and country for 28 years as a result of the Cold War, until it fell in 1989. While on the subject of the wall, be sure to visit the famous Checkpoint Charlie museum before heading over to Brandenburg Gate.

Aside from the city’s rich history and culture (did we mention the huge art scene or David Bowie’s Berlin Trilogy?), Berlin is full of open green spaces, glistening lakes and over 100 miles of waterways. It might be a little too cold to climb in a kayak and take yourself off exploring in the winter months, but you can certainly take a guided boat tour instead.

At night, book a table at the Reichstag’s rooftop restaurant and enjoy the stunning sunset vistas from the top of the iconic dome. If you prefer food on the go, grab an authentic Currywurst from a street food vendor and hit the town for a few drinks. The nightlife in Berlin is arguably Europes best, so you know you’ll be in for an unforgettable night.

To charter a private aircraft from London, the use of a ‘very light’ Cessna Citation Mustang, capable of carrying up to 4 passengers will set you back EUR €7,995.00 for a next day return this March. If you can rally a few friends together, a 6-seat Cessna Citation CJ2 would be appropriate at EUR €12,900.00. Both options fly out of Biggin Hill (Bromley), London.
