Get ready for another one of those anniversaries that might make you feel really old. November 9, 2014 will mark the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Once you’ve overcome this shock, start researching cheap tickets on low-cost carrier Air Berlin because a series of special events and exhibitions are about to take place throughout the city.

As well as being Europe’s fastest growing tourism city, Berlin is a great overall budget destination where tourist activities tend to cost less than in other European cities. A hop-on-hop-off sightseeing bus ticket will cost you $23 in Berlin, for example, compared to $40 in Barcelona. If you are planning to travel around the city and visit a lot of museums, you might also consider the Berlin Welcome Card, which covers transportation, museum entry, and discount vouchers. The card starts at $25 for 48-hours.

The year of anniversary festivities will culminate on the weekend of November 9 with a symbolic installation of illuminated, helium-filled balloons lining seven-and-a-half miles of the former inner-city border. In clear weather, the light installation should be visible from space. In the run-up to the anniversary event, you can commemorate the fall of the wall by visiting the city’s numerous memorials and museums, or by taking a specially themed tour.
