Berlin, Germany | Day 2

This is the much safer (and legal) way to experience the unique thrill of base jumping. Leaping 125m down from the roof of the Park Inn Hotel, granting you peerless views of the sprawling city below, you’ll reach free fall speed and feel like you’re flying before your harness brings this blood-pumping experience to an end.

Drink at a traditional beer hall
