Little beats having some time off to relax and recharge your batteries, in beautiful and vibrant surroundings.

Centrally located near Berlin's Brandenburg Gate, the Maritim Hotel Berlin is a stone's throw away from this year’s annual International Garden Exhibition (IGA) 2017. For six months between April and October 2017, Germany’s capital city will showcase Europe’s contemporary international garden design, landscape architecture and green urban lifestyle.

For a hearty start to the day, guests can enjoy Maritim’s signature lavish breakfast at the hotel’s restaurant. For lunch and dinner, the hotel’s renowned ‘‘Restaurant M’’ offers authentic regional dishes. After a day exploring the garden show, guests can unwind with a drink at the hotel’s cocktail lounge, ‘‘Le Bar’’, famed for its wide range of rare wines and whiskies.

We have one prize available to win, comprising a two-night stay for two at the Maritim Hotel Berlin, plus two tickets to the International Garden Exhibition, worth £355.
