Visiting Germany for its Christmas markets and missing the Berlin Christmas Market might be one of your biggest mistakes. However, you might be tight pressed to make a particular choice since Berlin, the capital of Germany, boasts of no less than sixty Christmas markets where you can go along with your family and indulge in both fun and shopping.
One of the main of such markets is held right before the Charlottenburg Palace. It is recommended that you should mould your heart to that of a child. It is only then that you will be able to enjoy the fun of themed rides and exhibits, with the historical carriage rides being the most popular.
However, do not spend all your time in front of the palace since there are some other famous markets to visit too with one of the most popular ones being Weihnachts Zauber on Gendarmenmarkt. For the uninitiated, the Gendarmenmarkt is one of Europe’s most beautiful square. Be prepared to turn into a child as you view the fairy lights and view the innumerous stalls full of souvenirs and other treats.
If you would love to combine some serious shopping along with the festivities plus some nightlife too, then you should view the Gedächtniskirche Christmas market. You can locate this market at the start of the Kurfurstendamm, West Berlin’s famous thoroughfare that is lined with restaurants, shops, and nightclubs.
