Christmas Markets

WHEN & WHERE

Handicrafts and Mulled Wine

There is no better way of getting in the spirit of the season than by visiting Berlin’s traditional Christmas markets with their dizzying array of hand-crafted goods and traditional food and drinks.  Even in the coldest weather, a “Glühwein” or two – the hot mulled wine that is a staple of the markets – will have you feeling warm and cozy in no time.

We take you to three of the most attractive markets in the city.  The first stop is at the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, the iconic landmark of West Berlin, where you will learn about the rich history of this part of town.

Next you’ll head over to Spandau in western-most Berlin, which boasts one of the biggest Christmas markets in Germany but is seldom frequented by tourists.  With its well-preserved medieval centre around the fourteenth century St. Nicholas Church, Spandau is the perfect setting to enjoy the festivities.  Finish your tour with the magnificent Charlottenburg Palace, where the Christmas market has been a local favourite for many years. Learn about the rich history behind this former summer residence for the Hohenzollern rulers, the perfect backdrop for the market stalls.
