Germania begins flying to LanzaroteBerlin, 19.12.2014
On 23 December Germania begins flying from Schönefeld to the island of Lanzarote, where stunning moonscapes merge into charming sunny beaches. Flight ST3548 takes off from Schönefeld on Tuesdays at 06:10 and arrives at Arrecife Airport at 10:20. The return flight ST3549 departs Lanzarote at 11:05 and lands at Schönefeld at 16:50. The Canary Island is therefore around five hours’ flying time from Berlin.
Lanzarote is the easternmost of the Canary Islands, which are situated in the Atlantic. With its moonscapes, Timanfaya National Park, and lava caves, it is a unique and fascinating destination. In 1993, it was the first island to be given in its entirety the status of UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Its beaches, mild climate, and low rainfall ensure visitors can escape winter for a few days. Lanzarote offers a varied mix of around 27 kilometres of sandy and shingle beaches and rugged rocky coastline. Superbly adapted to the island’s environment are the dromedaries, which formerly served as pack and work animals and today are predominantly a tourist attraction.
The island has also been shaped by the work of the artist and architect César Manrique, who was born on Lanzarote in 1919 and also died there in 1992. He is considered one of the pioneers of surrealism. Visitors can marvel at many of his works of art on the island. Many of them are permanently exhibited in the Fundación César Manrique and Museo Internacional de Arte Contemporaneo, which is also the home to works of Miró. Manrique also created works of art for outdoors too, such as the wind mobiles on many of the island’s roundabouts.
