Europe's 10 hottest destinations for 2013 | CNN Travel
: "Come October 2013, Berlin will be much easier to fly into, thanks to the highly anticipated (and well overdue) opening of the Brandenburg Airport, replacing three other airports at a cost of more than €4.2 billion (US$5.4 billion).
Needless to say, it will be one of the most modern terminal buildings in the world.
And when you do finally touch down you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find that Berlin is home to some of the most affordable five-star hotels in the world at the moment.
Newcomers to look out for include the 232-room Waldorf Astoria Berlin (opening February), as well as boutique properties Bikini Berlin and Leonardo Hotel Berlin Mitte. The Waldorf will be part of a large retail complex with upscale boutiques, a cinema and office space and will feature a spacious rooftop terrace and bar.
The Leonardo will resemble a glass-and-metal pyramid and has been designed by notable German architect Eike Becker."
