Iconic art and a chilled out vibe, Laura Whitmore takes the Berlin 12 hour challenge

Berlin is one of the world’s hottest creative hubs, and now you can get there for less – which means you’ll have more spare cash to help you enjoy everything the city has to offer.

Take a look at the Berlin 12 hour challenge, where erstwhile reporter Laura Whitmore tries to do as much as possible in Berlin in 12 hours with the money she saves from using Avios with her flight.

First stop for Laura is the Berlin wall to see the iconic image, My God, Help Me to Survive This Deadly Love of Leonid Brezhnev and Erich Honecker in a fraternal embrace.

Then she takes in the triumphal arch of the Brandenburg Gate, and enjoys as leisurely bike ride in what we reckon is the Tiergarten park.

Laura even manages to pop into a textile butchers, where there are knitted sausages and crocheted chops – it’s a case of feeding the soul rather than your belly. But she does all this and has cash to spare!

And if your wonderlust takes you, it doesn’t have to be Berlin – you can save money on other European and UK domestic flights when you use Avios and book directly with British Airways.

Avios is a travel reward scheme, which you can use for yourself and up to eight friends or family on the same booking. With as little as 1,500 Avios points you can start saving on your flight, and with those savings you can have more fun.

Explore the savings that Avios has to offer for your British Airways flights, and save money as you explore new or favourite locations.

Watch Laura take her 12 hour Berlin challenge – you can even invent new challenges of your own in new cities – and click through the film to see just what savings you can make with Avios.
