Although I travel mainly in Europe, one area I don't know very well is Germany. This August I have decided to go to the area around Berlin. I have booked flights to and from Berlin for 12 days and I intend to travel to other city's by rail. At present I am thinking of spending 4 nights in each of Berlin, Dresden and Leipzig but this is not fixed. I will be staying in SPG hotels as I need the nights to retain my Platinum status.
Are these city's the best places to visit in the area? Is the even split right or should I spend more time in Berlin than the others? Any good recommendations for what I should visit whilst in the area? All help would be very welcome.
