Okay, it’s the Dispatches Europe policy to go light on news releases. But ever once in a while, real news comes disguised as publicity.
We just saw this on PR Newswire, The Berlin Pass sightseeing pass card has just added new attractions, and boy, could we have used this last year when our family was shelling out big money for all the museums and attractions.
Berlin Pass is a pay-one-price deal that gives you access to more than 60 of the city’s top attractions and tours. So, instead of shelling out at each destination/activity, we could have paid one discounted price for the Berlin Pass, and gotten into the city’s top destinations including the must-see Pergamon Museum, Checkpoint Charlie Museum and the river cruise.
(Also, apparently there’s a sale that ends tomorrow, so don’t delay if you’re heading to one of Europe’s coolest cities this year.)
New additions to the popular Berlin Pass include:
Designed specifically for 3-10 year olds to enjoy, the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre brings together more than 5 million LEGO® bricks under one roof. Jump aboard the Dragon Ride, build the fastest car at LEGO Racers, or take on the lasers at LEGO® Ninjago. And take a quick and easy mini-tour of Berlin at LEGO Miniland: the Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag and Berliner Dom cathedral are just a few metres apart in this two million-brick construction!
Normally priced at €18.50 per person, entry to the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre is now included with the Berlin Pass.
• SEALIFE BERLIN
Get up close and personal with more than 5,000 aquatic creatures at Sealife Berlin, with seahorses, common octopuses and eagle rays some of the most popular locals to visit!

Kids aged 10 and above will laugh and scream their way through 700 years of Berlin’s horrible history at the Berlin Dungeon.
