Take Home a Piece of the Berlin Wall When You Stay At This Hotel
Those who go to Berlin seeking to soak up the city's incredible history will be interested to learn that a package offered by the 400-room Westin Grand gives guests the opportunity to take home a piece of the Berlin Wall with a two-night "Wallpecker Package."
The hotel recently purchased a chunk of the Wall, which now sits out in front of the lobby doors on the street. Guests who book the package get to take up a chisel and hammer off a piece, which comes with a certificate of authenticity. The package also includes an upscale taste of Berlin in the form of a currywurst sausage and a glass of Champagne at the lobby restaurant (check out our bro Jaunted's guide to eating in Berlin to learn more about currywurst).
This is going to be a toss up in terms of whether people find it hokey, but we think it's cool to be able to take home a real piece of the Berlin Wall (many pieces sold on the street are fake). The package costs $522 for two nights of double occupancy ($261/night) and includes breakfast and access to the spa's wellness area as well as the aforementioned meal and Wall pieces.
