You've been a blast, Amsterdam, but we're making tracks for the next adventure today.

Berlin

Hallo Berlin! This eclectic, richly historical and culturally charming city will blow us away as soon as we arrive. We'll waste no time in checking out the cutting-edge culinary scene. Berlin is considered the vegan capital of Europe... and there is plenty for the carnivores too! Then the evening is yours to explore the city's world-famous nightlife. The buzzing scene here is a joyous tribute to German reunification, and since the fall of the Berlin Wall the city has staked its claim as the techno capital of the world.

The rest of the day is yours - why not spend the afternoon eating your way through Berlin's hipster Kreuzberg district?
