The legendary railway express offers an experiential journey across Europe
The legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express will embark on a new route in 2016, linking the three European capital cities of London, Paris and Berlin. The inaugural departure is slated to leave from London to Berlin via Paris on Thursday, 2nd June 2016.
Travelling in the original art-deco carriages of the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express evokes the glamour of the roaring 1920s when Berlin was a post-war metropolis with a flourishing arts and cabaret scene. Today, Berlin is a monument to living history as well as the emblem of reunified Germany signified by striking architecture such as the Brandenburg Gate and the Berlin Wall Memorial; a thriving contemporary arts scene, lively bars and gourmet restaurants.
The one-night journey from London to Berlin allows guests to slow down, relax and enjoy the journey as the train makes its way through Northern France; traversing the German countryside and arriving in time to spend the weekend in one of Europe’s most fascinating cities.
Venice Simplon-Orient-Express brings to life the nostalgia of the golden age of travel with its vintage carriages. The decorative wooden marquetry and ornate furnishings provide a stylish setting for memorable experiences from fine dining, classic cocktails, champagne and entertainment. The sleeper cabins are attended to by personal stewards who ensure a comfortable journey.
The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express makes its return journey from Berlin to Paris or London on 4th June 2016. Prices start from USD3,393 per person sharing a double cabin that includes all meals served on board.
