A Christmas market break in Berlin is a great way to kick start the festive season.
There are over 50 Christmas markets in Berlin so I think it is fair to say if Berlin doesn’t get you into the spirit of Christmas, nothing will! Enjoy shopping for local hand crafts while sipping some mulled wine at the traditional Charlottenburg Castle market. Listen to some gospel singers at the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church market while gazing at the 20 meter high Christmas tree. Take in a Christmas Rock concert at the Spandau Old Town market where over 400 stands combine to bring you one of Berlin’s largest markets.
If you are looking for something a little different from your Christmas market break in Berlin, check out the Winter wonderland in Potsdamer Platz. The market in the Sony Centre’s 4000 square meter event area is sure to please. If you are feeling adventurous you can try Europe’s largest mobile toboggan run or ice skate on the 500 meter open air rink!
Of course the beauty of Berlin is that it’s one of Europe’s top culture capitals. You can choose from over 175 museums, marvel at the murals on the Berlin Wall, pass through Checkpoint Charlie and watch the sun go down over the Brandenburg gate. Berlin is a city that just has to be explored, for more tips and advice on discovering this fantastic city, check out my blog on Berlin here.
