As lockdown measures are being eased across Europe, Berlin is, like the other cities, getting back to new normality gradually. Now you can finally go out and meet your friends. However, you might be tired of your daily surroundings: your apartment, your neighborhood, the same shops, and streets.

Most of them are available with a price reduction, so you can start your booking right away! With one step closer to nature, we hope you’ll be getting out of this lockdown healthier and happier. Let’s have a look!
