“Berlin definitely came out of 2009 as a big winner,” said Burkhard Kieker, CEO of Berlin Tourism Marketing. “Even during these economically challenging times, interest in our city was undiminished. While other European capitals continued to suffer significant decreases, Berlin’s status as a must-see destination, the year-long celebrations of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the wall and Berlin’s unbeatable value kept attracting visitors from Europe and overseas.”

Berlin’s average hotel rate remains at approximately $100 per night.
