1. See the magic from above
While wandering through the stalls is undoubtedly a magical experience, what better way to see the sparkling lights of Christmas than from Berlin’s tallest building? Head up the Berlin TV Tower in Alexanderplatz for a drink and views across the twinkling city.
2. Cosy up with a stein
After all that exploring, you’ll be in need of a traditional cosy setting and hard-earned beer. And let’s face it, no trip to Berlin is complete without a stein! Find your nearest beer hall, take a seat at one of the benches and order a local brew.
3. Dashing through the snow
Just outside of the city, a winter wonderland awaits. With snowy conditions, the hills of Teufelsberg and Der Insulaner are the perfect place to whiz through the powder on a toboggan. Wrap up warm and get ready for some fun in the fluffy white snow.
4. Iconic market spots
With more than 60 markets to explore, Berlin offers up it’s fair share of beautiful backdrops for it’s twinkling stalls. Spandau Old Town is a historic spot and Potsdamer Platz is perfect for those looking for a little retail therapy after their festive experience.
5. Bag some Christmas deals
While you’re in the city, why not grab a few things to help fill up those Christmas stockings back home? Visit Alexanderplatz and wander through the stalls, picking up souvenirs as you go. Then hit the big retail names for those last few presents.
6. Warm up on Museum Island
It’s time to step indoors and warm up! This UNESCO-listed site has five beautiful museums to explore, giving your art, antiques and history all on one compact island. Head inside and get toasty as you wander through each one.
