WHEN & WHERE
Handicrafts and Mulled Wine
Enjoy the unique atmosphere of Berlin's Christmas markets, a German tradition going back centuries. 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. We take you to some of the most attractive markets in the city (stops may vary depending on opening times).
Delight in various Christmas delicacies and marvel at the charming hand-crafted goods on offer while listening to your local guide who will tell you all about the German Christmas traditions and its historical origins.
This tour is a “Must Do” in December, even in the coldest weather, when a “Glühwein” – the hot mulled wine that is a staple of the markets – will have you feeling warm and cozy in no time.
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.
