    Top hotel at a top location. The Adlon, directly opposite Brandenburg Gate, was Berlin’s first luxury hotel. It opened in 1907, but was almost completely destroyed by fire in 1945. It was rebuilt in the style of the original and on the same site, the Adlon reopened in 1997 – again setting the same high standards of luxury and service.

    25hours hotels are among the most original accommodation choices in Germany. This one opened in 2014 between Gedächtniskirche (Memorial Church) and the zoo. Animal sounds can be heard at night, so the design happily takes up the urban jungle theme, for example, with hammocks and the extremely popular Monkey Bar on the rooftop terrace.
