We are super excited that the Christmas markets are here! For those who want to do more than just Christmas stuff, here is a compilation of activities that you can enjoy this weekend and others to come!
1. Rakotzbrücke Devil's Bridge
Source: Rebecca O'Neill
Fall is said to be the best time to visit this gem of Germany, a perfect hike with beautiful fall colours and it fits perfectly in a day trip from Berlin. The bridge is not the only attraction this park has to offer, Kromlau Park has a castle and 150-year-old tulip trees.
This day trip will take you around 2 hours from Berlin, so plan to leave early.
To get there: You can take the Regional from Alexanderplatz to Weißwasser (Oberlausitz) and from there a bus. If you go alone it cost more or less €35- €50, and if you go with a group, the more people that go the cheaper it gets. You can buy a QDL ticket and make a group day trip with some friends or create a Moment in our app to find people to go with.
