Travel on select dates in August and September. Depart Philadelphia on Mondays or Wednesdays, and return from Berlin on Tuesdays or Thursdays. You must return August 22 or later to get this price. A 7-night minimum stay is required.
As an example, I found this price available departing Philadelphia PHL on Wednesday, September 18, returning from Berlin TXL on Thursday, September 26.
This is a perfect itinerary to enjoy the first weekend of Oktoberfest. Although Berlin's festival is not nearly as big as in Munich, you'll still get to slurp down some tasty suds and eat delicious pretzels. And If you feel like taking a train or a cheap domestic flight down to Munich, you can enjoy the main festivities in Bavaria for a weekend and a few days in Berlin for about half the price of flights directly to Munich.
