1. What is the best time?
Although any time is good for a trip to Berlin, the best time of the year is in spring and summer, when temperatures are more pleasant, around 20 degrees, and longer days. In addition this good weather allows you to enjoy the great atmosphere in parks and squares, one of the great attractions of the city, which in other times is more difficult to live.
From October it gets dark sooner and the cold starts to make a dent, although the prices of the accommodations are cheaper and you can visit the main points of interest with fewer people, so this time of year can also be very attractive.
Winter is a cold and dry season, which we only recommend if you want to enjoy Christmas markets and the possibility of seeing the snowy city.
2. Entry requirements when traveling to Berlin
For travel to Berlin, if you are from Spain or from a European Union country, you will only need to carry your ID or Passport, without having to do a visa. If you are not a citizen of the European Union, it is advisable to check online or call the German Embassy or the Foreign Ministry of your country, to find out what are the mandatory documents.
One of the requirements that is not mandatory, but highly recommended, is to carry the European Health Card with which you will have access to German public health. Although despite this do not forget that there are situations such as repatriation, which only enter if you also have the best travel insurance.
