What to expect

When thinking of Christmas time in Germany, Berlin might not be the first thing to come in mind. But the German capital has lots to offer in December.

About 60 Christmas markets all over the city open their doors at the end of November and turn the grey streets into a magical Christmas paradise. The Alexanderplatz for example turns into a massive Christmas market with many small wooden huts. Around the historic Neptunbrunnen the “Berliner Weihnachtzeit” is taking place and the historic architectural setting of the Kulturbrauerei offers a picturesque backdrop for a special Christmas experience. Also the famous Gendarmenmarkt opens its doors and greets guests with more than 1,000 strings of light.

And even romantic castles like the baroque Charlottenburg Palace are sumptuous backdrops for Christmas markets in Berlin.

No matter if you love the traditional with craftsmanship, mulled wine and German Bratwurst or if you want to experience a modern and international version of Christmas, Berlin will convince you.
