During this time of the year in Berlin, Christmas markets are a must visit. Below are my favourite two Christmas markets. Once there, you need to make sure to drink some Glühwein, which is the German word for Mulled wine. It is served warm and contains alcohol however, there is a non-alcoholic version of it. This drink is perfect to warm you up in the cold and it is delicious.
Gendarmenmarkt: The Gendarmenmarkt Christmas market is open from November 25 till December 31, 2019. There is a 1 euro entrance fee that is completely worth it. The market is located between three impressive buildings: The Deutsche Dom, the Konzerthaus and the Franzozische Friedrichstadtkirche. There is a gigantic Christmas tree in the middle of it and offers plenty of tasty products and daily live performances.
Weihnachtszeit at Roten Rathaus: The Christmas market at Roten Rathaus is small market located in front of the Fernsehturm in Alexanderplatz. The entrance is free of charge and the market is open from November 25 till January 6, 2020. It is one of the most famous and also oldest Christmas markets in Berlin. It contains a gigantic Ferris wheel and large ice skating-ring for a fun afternoon or evening.
