Cheap holidays to Germany
I can’t really sum up Germany as ‘a’ holiday destination. It is so large and full of variety that you cannot compare the North to the South, the buzzing cities to the quaint little old-town villages or a week at a lake to a weekend city break. What I can say is that no matter what you go for, you won’t regret it. Germany is a fantastic country to travel to, because it does cater to all your wishes. If you fancy a short break, hop on a plane and visit the amazing city of Hamburg with your partner, or bring the family for a week at the beach up north or in the Alps and relieve the Sound of Music!
Cheap Flights to Germany
It is actually very easy to book cheap flights to Germany. Since Ireland and Germany have a great business relationship and it’s busy anyway due to tourism, there are always loads of routes on offer, sometimes several times a day. You can get direct flights to 9 different German cities starting from €23.
Ireland to Hamburg
Probably the fastes you can reach Germany is with a flight to Hamburg. However, you can only fly direct from Dublin and not from other Irish airports. The airfares start from as low as €26 for a return so you can rather spend the money on a more luxurious hotel and enjoy a splurgy Hamburg break.
Ireland to Berlin
You can choose from a couple more airports if you are looking for flights to Berlin. Here the cheapest option is actually flying from Kerry airport from only €26 return. But Dublin and Shannon are also not really pricey. You still get a good flight deal for under €50 return if you book in advance to explore the capital of Germany.
Ireland to Munich
The most expensive city of Germany is Munich – that doesn’t mean, though, you have to spend a fortune on getting there. Your best bet is to fly from Dublin from €34 return. There is another direct flight from Cork, however, this is one is much more expensive and costs just under €200.
Ireland to Dusseldorf or Cologne
Another great way to explore a whole bunch of great German cities is when you fly to Dusseldorf or Cologne. You will find yourself in the heart of the Ruhr Area or the Rhineland – great to visit cities like Dortmund, Essen or Bonn and you will be close to the Dutch border too. Book flights from around €30 return! Also Aer Lingus have opened a new route between Cork and Dusseldorf, but it is still not super cheap to fly (return €160)
Accommodation in Germany
Cheap Hotels in Germany
German hotels in general have a great standard, especially with all those recently-opened stylish but low-budget hotels, like MotelOne or the B&B chain, where you get great value for a price as low as €68 per night. They are usually quite centrally located. Hotels in Hamburg and Munich belong to the priciest in Germany, so be sure to book your hotel well in advance. Because Berlin hasn’t exploded price-wise YET, you should be able to get a good deal on hotels there.
Airbnbs in Germany
I’d say from a group as big or small as 3 people it already makes sense to rent an Airbnb. In a city like Berlin you can find some real gems. And also you can live right in the trendy areas and feel like a local. Visit that great coffee shop around the corner, have a lunch in a quirky restaurant and maybe even get to know your hosts and find out some more insider tips.
Best German City Breaks
That depends totally up to you! Since Germany has so much to offer I am sure you will find the city that suits you best. If you like to visit a gorgeous city with loads of history and pretty buildings, go visit Munich. More the quirky type and love to explore a city’s different neighbourhood? Then try out Berlin! If you are the unconventional type and don’t really care about pretty buildings and old towns, then I’d recommend the Ruhr area. You love the flair of a harbour city then visit Hamburg! There is so much on offer, so be sure to keep checking my blog for the best Germany deals.
German Christmas Markets Deals
Germany is THE place for a proper authentic Christmas Market break. That is why I come up regularly with great deals for your festive break. Basically, every big city and small town has a Christmas Market. It is of course even more impressive if you visit one of the really old cities like Nuremberg or Rothenburg ob der Tauber during December. Their Christmas Markets are extra special, because they have the perfect setting for this cosy event. Look forward to handcrafted design, some delicious mulled wine and great hearty food…
