Walking along the magnificent sites of Berlin, you can’t help but be transported back to the days of Prussian glory, the Nazi-era nadir or the Cold War blues. But Berlin is no museum piece – its hotels create an upmarket counterpart to the city’s looming watchtowers. The five-star Kempinski Hotel Bristol Berlin exudes timeless luxury, showcasing old-school European demureness, discreet hospitality and a spectacular location on the city’s most beautiful street, the Kurfürstendamm.
Right opposite the Uhlandstraße Underground Station and just 600 metres from Berlin Zoo, it is better known as a landmark than a hotel. This property is such a part of city life – the longest established luxury hotel in Berlin - that it is known to Berliners as the “Kempi”. Inside, there’s a restaurant, a brasserie and a piano bar, plus a spa with a heated indoor pool and thermal area.
Spice up your festive nights with a stay during the winter months to discover the city at its most magical. Buzzing with festive excitement, adorned with beautiful Christmas trees and lit up in twinkling fairy lights, the markets are the best part of Berlin’s winter. Follow your nose to the finest mulled wine and roasted chestnuts as you soak up the unique ambience of the city’s famous stalls.
