The Air Horizont company, as part of its “Getaways” program , has scheduled a flight to Berlin from Zaragoza that will take off on October 2 and return on the 6th. It is a unique opportunity to discover one of the most cultural and historical cities in Europe with its iconic Berliner Dom cathedral, the famous wall that divided the city and fell in 1989 or the imposing Brandenburg Gate.

The flight will depart from Zaragoza Airport to Berlin at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, October 2 , and will return on Sunday, October 6, at 6:00 p.m. The journey is direct with a duration of 2 hours and 45 minutes and tickets are already on sale for approximately 300 euros round trip.

It is also a trip that could not be on a better date, since it coincides with the start of the Pilar Festival, so it is perfect if you want to take advantage of it for a getaway . If you are thinking of taking this flight from Zaragoza to Berlin to disconnect for a few days, we leave you six essential things that you cannot miss .


One of Berlin’s most iconic sites is its famous cathedral (Berliner Dom), which stands on the banks of the Spree River. The imposing monumental complex, of which its large dome flanked by four towers stands out , plays an important role for the Protestant parish and highlights its baroque interior decoration of which every detail is worth observing.

In addition, visitors can climb to the dome to enjoy a unique panoramic view of Berlin, although this requires climbing more than 270 steps. For a more complete visit, you can also hire audio guides.


Next to the cathedral is Museum Island, made up of five world-famous buildings that have been UNESCO World Heritage Sites since 1999. There you can visit the New Museum (Neues Museum), where the iconic bust of Nefertiti , the Pergamon Museum, the Ancient Museum, the Bode Museum, the Old National Gallery and the Altes Museum.

The Berlin Wall, which had an extension of more than 150 kilometers and which surrounded and separated the area of ​​the Berlin capital within the Federal Republic of Germany (West Berlin) from the capital of the Federal Republic of Germany (East Berlin), was standing from 1961 to 1989 and is one of the greatest symbols of the Cold War .

Although pieces of wall can be seen throughout the city, the most iconic area left standing is the so-called East Side Gallery in Friedrichshain, an open-air gallery with more than 100 murals that stretch across 1 .3 kilometers and which recount the political changes in 1990 since the fall of the wall.

One of the most recognizable works is the kiss between Leonid Brezhnev, communist leader of the Soviet Union, and Erich Honecker, communist leader of the German Democratic Republic.


Another point on the itinerary that travelers visiting Berlin cannot miss is the Brandenburg Gate, which stands on Paris Square. It was inaugurated in 1791, in a neoclassical style, and is called that because it was the beginning of the road that leads to the city that gives it its name.

It is a symbol of the German capital that has witnessed numerous historical episodes.

Very close to the Brandenburg Gate stands the imposing Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, also known as the Holocaust Memorial. It is a 19,000 square meter inclined field where there are 2,700 concrete slabs that vary in height and create a kind of labyrinth to commemorate the Jews who were victims of the Holocaust.


The excursion to the Sachenhausen concentration camp is the most famous, just half an hour by train from the German capital. Built in 1936 and released on April 22, 1945 , more than 200,000 prisoners were held within its walls . Once the war ended, it became a special Soviet camp, the largest in the occupation zone.


Lisbon is just one of the eight charter flight destinations that Air Horizont has scheduled . By the end of 2024, the company will connect Zaragoza with four destinations. Thus, you can also fly from Zaragoza to Granada to discover the imposing Alhambra, to Lisbon to taste the cream pastries and to  Munich  to soak up German culture. As for the sale of tickets, they started this past Monday, May 6.

But this is not all, other flights that will operate throughout 2025 will soon be added to the offer. Thus, travelers will be able to escape from Zaragoza to Porto, Verona, Naples/Amalfi Coast, Malaga, Sicily and Malta . In addition, Air Horizont will add a special schedule of five flights from Zaragoza to Rome, coinciding with the jubilee year, in spring and autumn of next year.
