All I want for Christmas, are the markets. My favourite, my favourite, my most special and beloved Christmas market of all time. Among the large flurry of brightly lit Christmas markets in Berlin, I have fallen in love with Lucia. When we saw each other for the first time, my palms got all sweaty, my heart started racing in my chest and I could not stop smiling. This Scandinavian Weihnachtsmarkt in the courtyard of the in Prenzlauer Berg located Kulturbrauerei is absolutely beautiful.
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.

Until my birthday, that is.
Christmas is drawing nigh and most people will have to engage in purchasing the necessary gifts for their loved ones this weekend.

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.

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.
