In addition, Ryanair also connects Berlin with Gran Canaria and Lanzarote in the Canary Islands. There are also three flights a week to Gran Canaria, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The Lanzarote route is served twice a week from Berlin-Schönefeld, every Wednesday and Sunday. This winter the Irish low cost airline will offer flights to 45 destinations from Berlin-Schönefeld.
Seville – Princess of Cities
With a population of around 700,000, the capital of Andalusia is Spain’s fourth largest city. Seville has become a much loved tourist destination thanks to its mild climate, its beautiful architecture and wide ranging cultural highlights. Old palaces, highly modern architecture, the Metropol Parasol (a giant, accessible wooden sculpture), the Old Town, the Santa Cruz quarter with its narrow lanes and the Cathedral of Maria de la Sede (Spain’s largest gothic church) with its distinctive belfry (La Giralda) make up just a few of the city’s many sights. Seville is one of the birth places of Flamenco and the fiery dance is a symbol of its vibrant nightlife. Partygoers will find ample opportunity for escape in the Princess of Cities, as the locals fondly call Seville.
Seville is situated in the region of Andalusia, which is littered with whitewashed villages and unique towns such as Marbella, Granada and Cádiz. Beach lovers will be in their element on the never ending beaches of the Costa del Sol, the Costa de la Luz and the coastline of Almería. A visit to Doñana National Park (a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site) or, in winter, the ski region of the Sierra Nevada is also worthwhile.
Located in the Atlantic Ocean, the volcanic island of Lanzarote is the most easterly of the Canary Islands. Thanks to its lunar landscapes, the Timanfaya National Park and lava caves it is both unique and fascinating. In 1993, Lanzarote became the first whole island to be declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. A mild, relatively dry climate and beaches invite visitors to come and forget the winter for a few days. Lanzarote offers a wide selection of about 27 kilometres of sand and shingle beaches as well as dramatic cliffs.
The third largest of the Canary Islands, Gran Canaria, draws in visitors thanks to its year round warm climate, as well as its diversity and contrast. Whilst the south is rather dry thanks to winds blowing up from the Sahara, the climate in the north of the island is much more humid due to the trade winds. The island’s landscape therefore varies wildly, earning it the nickname of miniature continent due to the diversity of flora and fauna. Some of Gran Canaria’s most well loved attractions include the dunes at Maspalomas, the fishing village of Puerto de Mogán, which also known as the Venice of the south, and the 290 caves at Cenobio de Valerón, which were carved out of tufa by the island’s pre-historic inhabitants.
