Berlin is well known for an abundance of cafes, brunch opportunities, food stalls, fancy restaurants and everything in between. However, while many enjoy life in Berlin by sampling the truly well represented international cuisine on offer, one should not forget to give German cuisine a try as well!

I love cheese fondue and I have been wanting to eat cheese fondue ever since I moved to Berlin. Not that Berlin is the capital of cheese fondue, but there are definitely a couple of cheese-worthy places for eating warm and liquid cheeses in Germany’s Hauptstadt. It is one of those dinners that need a special occassion, however. And that is why I had not yet ventured into a restaurant location where eating cheese fondue was the main activity. Until my birthday, that is.
We have raved about the infamous “Chalet” on Alexanderplatz a couple of times – a big wooden shack in the middle of the Weihnachtsmarkt where you can join large groups of German-loving Glühwein-drinking tourists and locals who are looking for some old-school musical entertainment. But there is more to this market than meets the eye…
One of the absolutely prettiest Weihnachtsmärkte in Berlin is the well-known tourist attraction Christmas market on the Gendarmenmarkt. And not without reason, this large market is simply stunning and offers its visitors a great and varied assortment of drinks, foods and potential Christmas purchases. Centrally located in Mitte, on a walking distance from the Friedrichstraße
Christmas times are here to stay in the snowwy city of Berlin – the perfect moment to visit even more Weihnachtsmärkte than you already have. Our next and also fabulous Weihnachtsmarkt that is completely different from the Lucia Weihnachtmarkt and the market in front of the Schloss Charlottenburg: is the Christmas market at the Gedächtniskirche. This large Weihnachtsmarkt takes up all the space around and among the notorious Gedächtniskirche.
Another Christmas market classic. If you are looking for romance and beauty, you cannot miss the market at the Schloss Charlottenburg. One of Berlin’s most classical and popular Christmas markets is the market at Schloss Charlottenburg, a beautiful building that in itself attracts thousands of tourists, even during the cold wintermonths.
On Monday the 22nd of November 2010, the Weihnächtsmarkte will open their doors to welcome Christmas hungry visitors. Drinking Glühwein, Eierlikör, rumpunch and eating Bratwurst and Mutzenmandeln – experience the real Christmas atmosphere at one of Berlin’s 89 Christmas markets. And of course, Good Food in Berlin will tell you where to go.
