On our last day we went to the top of the victory column and saw that the “die Welt”balloon was flying! (As we knew it from our first trip in April 18)
First time it was in the air all trip! Quickly got transport over....More
1) Go to the window to buy tickets and the ticket agent says, “I’m sorry, it is too windy, we don’t know if we”ll go back up; we’ll know in 30 minutes... sorry”. Okay, no worries... safety first.
2) Two-minutes later, someone else comes to...More
You pay for your ticket and come back for your balloon ride at the allotted time. We had 40 minutes between payment and our ride, enough time to go for lunch at a near by cafe. We went on a Saturday, maybe it's not so...More
Very reasonably priced and a discount was also given as we had the Berlin Welcome Card. The views and experience was excellent and had ample time in the air to see as much as we could. Would recommend and do again next time I visit...More
My wife and I arranged the balloon adventure as part of our anniversary celebrations. It was good fun, the pilot was very entertaining and knowledgeable also the beautiful still weather helped a good deal. Would definitely recommend for a new and rather different experience.
We’ve ridden a similar balloon in Irvine, CA so we thought this would be a great way to see Berlin from up high. Glad we did.
There was no line and no wait. The whole trip only lasts about 15 minutes, but it gives you...More
Went on the hiflyer 14-02-2018 was such an amazing experience. Definitely would not recommend if you don’t like heights though. Amazing views of Berlin lasts around 15 mins and would do it all over again !
Yes, it sometimes felt precarious but it’s good to push yourself to do these kinds of things, isn’t it? ;-)
Great time with friends, we endured it together and then, after a while, focused on the views and pointed out various Berlin landmarks to each...More
Die Welt is just the paper who sponsors, the attractionname is HiFlyer Berlin. But because you can read the papername from Miles away when the balloon is up its better known as Weltballoon. I did the trip and its sure worth it. See my review...More
Usually you catch the city overviews from a (TV)tower or high-rise, but in Berlin there is this special option which, as lovers of overviews, has to be taken up. The ride up takes a minute or two and when at the highest point there is...More
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
