From Neue Wache to the Wall: The powerful Holocaust monuments of Berlin

Berlin today is a city brimming with life, exhibited beautifully and youthfully in its many jazz venues and raucous nightclubs. The verve that this, one of Europe’s most fascinating capitals, presents on a daily basis is impressive, especially considering the sobering history of the past century. Walk through town and travelers will no doubt spot the bakeries, bars and shops that signal life goes on, but they’re also likely to stumble across one of the many monuments erected to acknowledge and cope with the suffering that has left an indelible mark on German lives.

Whole tours of Germany are sculpted around the premise of revisiting Berlin’s past. The corresponding monuments, ranging from the Sinti and Roma Memorial to the book-burning square of Bebelplatz, may elicit a range of emotions from their visitors. Some may reflect on their place in the world, or the atrocities of war. For others, those monuments are an educational opportunity. To others still, they are a place to dwell on personal experiences of loss, as generations of families remain indelibly affected by the events of World War II. Some of these sites may be hard to visit, but the experience can be cathartic, enlightening and ultimately rewarding.

The price depends on the location, class of service (number of stars), and additional services. By the way, if you don’t like to waste your time searching for accommodation, just get a rental car, and go to any hotel you want!

The main points when choosing a hotel in Munich:

 

1.   Location

You must know that Munich is a huge city, and you wouldn’t like to lose an hour to get to a certain place! Much better is to have an opportunity to get to any place quickly and easily! So, if you want to save your time and be in the heart of the action, choose a hotel in the central part of the city which is highlighted with red!

If you want to choose the hotel with the most convenient location (center is not far away, many different shops, cafes and restaurants), search for a hotel in the area which is marked with a red circle. You’ll find a great number of hotels for any taste: little and huge, cheap and luxury. There are about 50+ ones only in this little area!

You can also check several hotels in the Old Town. But remember that it is very hard to find low-cost options there! The most profitable and affordable hotel deals are concentrated at the INNENSTADT. If you prefer to live in the “heart” of the city, you will find very comfortable hotels for quite adequate prices! The Center is always comfortable: not far from Marienplatz – a place where most excursions begin!

Important! Check out the price on a specific date and make a booking immediately because in spring, summer and early autumn is the tourist season: all hotels will be packed! In winter everybody goes skiing to the Alps and hotels are also occupied with tourists.

2. Interior

Modern systems of online hotel reservations provide information about the hotel interior. This information will help you to choose any accommodation you want!

3. Parking

If you are traveling by your own car or a rental car an important criterion for choosing a hotel is the availability of free parking. If your hotel doesn’t provide a free parking learn the value of the nearest car park. As a rule, the closest to the center are the most expensive!

4. Room equipment

This information is also provided by online reservation systems. If a hair dryer, internet, cable TV, mini-bar and safety are important for you, check these options when choosing a hotel!

Interesting facts:
A poll shows that 61% of tourists ask for free Internet as for the most important addition to a hotel room, besides a TV (17%), bathroom (5%), refrigerator (3%) and mini-bar (1%). So, internet allows travelers to feel like home!

5. Hotel reviews

You can find many reviews of different hotels in Internet, and also their ratings. This is one of the most important criteria. A large number of reviews generate enough objective “hotel rating”, so it’s always convenient to check out opinions of other people!

Where to get a rental car in Munich?

Car rental vehicle is the best assistant when you are searching for a hotel! No need to wait for taxi or public transport! Moreover, it’s not convenient to carry your luggage from place to place! Just drop your things to your rental car and go! You have a great opportunity to get your rental car in any location of Munich but if you don’t want to lose your time, money and nerves, take it directly at the Airport of Munich! You can also make a booking online! Just follow http://germany.rentalcars24h.com/munich-airport#tips and check the best car rental deals to choose any vehicle you want!
