The country's capital and largest city, Berlin is a diverse urban center boasting a lively nightlife and countless things to do.
Explore Berlin's surroundings by going to Potsdam (Sanssouci Park, Sanssouci Palace, &more) and Tropical Islands (in Krausnick). And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Haus der Wannsee-Konferenz, step off the mainland to explore Pfaueninsel, look for gifts at The Boozehound, and stroll around Botanical Garden and Botanical Museum Berlin-Dahlem.

Cairo, Egypt to Berlin is an approximately 7.5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train; or drive. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Cairo to Berlin due to the time zone difference. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Thu) so you can take a train to Hamburg.
