The Berlin airline Germania is adding northerly Rovaniemi, Finland to its routes from Berlin-Schönefeld. The destination will be offered twice a week, on Wednesdays and Sundays. The flight time totals two hours and forty minutes. The route is served by a Boeing 737-700.

This winter, Germania now offers six destinations from Schönefeld: Beirut, Hurghada, Rovaniemi, Tenerife, Teheran and Paphos. Other destinations are to follow. In May 2017, the Greek island of Kos will be added to the flight programme. The sunny destinations of Sharm el Sheik, Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria will be added in October 2017.

Rovaniemi – near the Arctic Circle

The capital city of the northern Finnish region of Lapland is just eight kilometres south of the Arctic Circle. About 36,000 residents live in the city at the confluence of the Ounasjoki and Kemijoki rivers. These two impressive and partially lake-like rivers dominate the landscape, dotted with forests and moorland.

The colourful spectacle of the Northern Lights, the almost unique opportunity to cross the Arctic Circle as well as the nearby Santa Claus Village make Rovaniemi an interesting travel destination – especially in winter. The main highlights of the winter season include motor sled safaris, reindeer and husky sled rides, ice fishing and visits to husky or reindeer farms.

Rovaniemi is the economic centre of Finnish Lapland. The most northern university in Europe is located there. The city centre is easy going and situated next to the water. The works of the famous Finnish architect Alvar Aalto populate the city’s skyline. City hall, library and the Lappia Hall theatre were designed by him. Also worth a visit is Arktikum – a museum that retells the history of the indigenous people of Lapland, the Sami, all the way from the Stone Age to today.
