Best Time to Book a Flight to Berlin

Residents of Berlin experience four distinct seasons each year, with warm, humid summers and cold winters. Snow and freezing rain are common from December to February. The spring and fall months are usually cool to mild, with average humidity and rainfall. Due to the comfortable weather, these two seasons are very popular with tourists.

Despite the cold weather, tourists flock to Berlin each February for the Berlin International Film Festival (also known as Berlinale). Held annually from mid- to late February, Berlinale is one of the world's most popular film festivals. Hundreds of films from around the world are shown and compete for various prestigious awards.

Airport and Airline Options in Berlin

The busiest airport in Berlin is currently Berlin Tegel Airport (TXL), a large, five-terminal airport located about 8 km from downtown Berlin. However, by 2019, it is expected that the airport will be closed and replaced by Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER), an airport that is still under construction. Currently, Berlin Tegel is served by over 50 airlines, including popular airlines like British Airways, Lufthansa, and KLM.

Seasonally, Air Canada Rouge operates direct flights from Toronto to Berlin Tegel. Though this is currently the only direct flight path between Canada and Berlin, you can also easily fly from any major Canadian city to Berlin with a stop in Europe. Popular spots for a layover include Paris, London, and Frankfurt.

Berlin's other major international airport is Berlin Schonefeld Airport (SXF). This airport is about half the size of TXL in terms of passengers served per year. Berlin Schonefeld consists of four passenger terminals and sits just outside the Berlin city limits in the town of Schonefeld. Ryanair and EasyJet are the carriers offering the most flight destinations. These two low-cost carriers fly to and from popular cities like Brussels, London, and Pisa. There are currently no direct flight connections between Canada and Berlin Schonefeld.

What to See and Do in Berlin

The streets of Berlin are vibrant and busy during the day, but as the home of some of the best bars and nightclubs in the country, they really come alive at night. With parties often continuing into the early hours of the morning on weekends, you're sure to have a great time in Berlin. To start the night off right, be sure to stop by one of Berlin's twelve Michelin-star ranked restaurants for an incredible meal.

If you're looking for activities that are family-friendly, take a trip to the Zoologischer Garten Berlin, a zoo with over a thousand different animal species. Some of the most popular animals available to view include polar bears, giant pandas, giraffes, and gorillas. Playgrounds, petting zoos, and a large aquarium are a few of the many amenities available at the Zoologischer. The zoo is open year-round with an affordable admission fee.
