April has finally arrived and we couldn’t be happier! Spring has been taking its time this year, and seeing the sun is bringing back the familiar need to step outside and absorb as much as we possible can. This is the perfect time to visit Berlin, and if you are staying with us, there’s more than the sun to look forward to!

If you aren’t familiar with it yet, this is the perfect time to get familiar with our Behind The Curtain program. We call it exclusive because it really is. The tours we take you on are the result of our networking with locals to give you an unforgettable experience and help you see Berlin the way we see and love it. This means that being our guest goes way beyond accommodation!

We also know that planning trips can be time and energy consuming and it makes us happy to help take some stress out of your day. Here’s a few highlights from this month’s program that will make your Berlin stay so much better!

1. The visit to Berliner Dom with a view

Can you imagine anything better to do on a spring day than absorb a panoramic view of Berlin from the pompous Berliner Dom? Because on April 5th we’ll be doing exactly that! Taking you on a guided tour of the interior, followed by a climb to the top of the dome where you can enjoy a beautiful view of Berlin Mitte is the order of the day so make sure you mark the day in your calendar!

2. Run the Berlin Half-Marathon with The Circus Crew

Are you as crazy about running as our former bar manager Jared is? Then this is one you don’t want to miss! Get your running gear ready and set your alarm, he’ll be picking you up at reception on April 6th at 8:30am. Once you’re done running come back for our famous all-you-can-eat breakfast at The Hostel!

3. What’s a visit to Berlin without its underground art?

So we are taking you on that tour! April 18h is the date you wanna save and make sure that phone is charged, it’s an experience you’ll document.

More exciting tours include the films and music heritage tour – a walk down the historic path that will give you everything from Marlene Dietrich to David Bowie, as well as a sneak peek behind the backstage of the Deutsche Oper, in case you ever wondered what happens behind those curtains…

Either way, this is the page you’ll wanna keep your eye on! We can’t wait to explore Berlin with you!
