Berlin: The No. 1 destination for last-minute events in November

Berlin is in its highest season of the year in September and October, groaning from one fair and event to another. What an ease when November is here — time for your short-term meetings, with fair prices and high availability.

Time for November

During September and October, availability for events and groups is limited in Berlin, and prices are high. The technology fair IFA marks the start to the busy months, followed by numerous medical congresses and events held every second year, such as EASD. Also, Berlin is hosting events that fill up the market, such as the Marathon weekend.

Then, it’s time for November. Prices are back to a normal level, and availability increases. Many clients draw their last-minute, spontaneous meetings and events to the vibrant city. Over the past years, a movement has been re-emerging in Berlin, from east to west. The Kurfuerstendamm area is up and coming, rediscovering its glory from the 1920s and ’30s, when Marlene Dietrich was strolling the boulevard and writing songs about the area.

Sofitel Berlin Kurfürstendamm

A distinctive landmark of this area and a wonderful place for your meetings and groups in November is the Sofitel Berlin Kurfürstendamm, which is ideally located just a stone’s throw from the main boulevard. The award-winning limestone façade by Berlin architect Jan Kleihues is without a doubt an eye-catcher. Step inside, and you find a very different atmosphere than expected. The 311-room hotel is like a warm living room in modern Bauhaus design.

The property has actually undergone a grand renovation with beautiful public spaces. Famous Le Faubourg has the buzz of a Parisian restaurant, the Lounge Bar invites guests for after-meeting cocktails, and both can be rented exclusively. Also refreshed are the extremely large rooms — most offering breathtaking views of the city — which are equipped with delicate furnishings such as the Sofitel MyBed, as well as a Bose sound system, complimentary Nespresso machines, and complimentary Wi-Fi.

The meeting facilities of the hotel are rolled out on two floors with over 2,200 square meters and offer daylight in all spaces. The wooden ballroom Concord, which accommodates up to 350 guests, is the highlight for your meetings, aiming to give a feel of intimacy to the group. The Salon Opera overlooks Kurfuerstendamm Boulevard and is cut astonishingly over the bow of the hotel. Certainly you can find meeting rooms for all different group sizes here.

Your November in Berlin

Sofitel Berlin Kurfürstendamm offers you a treat in November: Book room rates for your group starting at only 139 euros per night, including breakfast, as well as a DDR reduction from 89 euros to 79 euros per person. At the same time, you can take advantage of personal benefits such as a lunch voucher or increased commission. Note “Your November in Berlin” in your request to receive these advantages.
