Why you should spend your Christmas Holiday in Berlin
It’s winter, and the chills are setting in. So is the Christmas season too. If you have been unsure about spending your Christmas holiday in Berlin, worry no more. Berlin has a lot of sights and has the perfect Christmas atmosphere. Here are a few reasons why you should spend your Christmas holiday in Berlin:
The Christmas Markets
The festive season and Christmas markets go hand in hand, and there’s no better way to celebrate Christmas than to visit her traditional markets. These markets have a long history that goes back to the Middle Ages.
You can get traditional German food, local festive drinks, handcrafted gifts, and sweets at the markets. You’d always find a Christmas market somewhere in the city with twinkling Christmas lights illuminating them and carols playing unending.
Ice skate rinks
It’s not the festive season in Berlin without you gliding around a rink to Christmas carols and a cheerful crowd. So, if you want to have fun during Christmas, ensure you visit one of Berlin’s many ice rinks. The Potsdamer Platz, for example, is a nice and large free ice—skating rink for winter sports lovers. You can rent a pair of ice skates for a tiny fee if you don’t bring your skates with you on the trip.
Winter Dinner at Café Wintergarten
Enjoy a romantic dinner with your partner at Berlin’s Café Wintergarten, a quiet oasis in central Berlin. You can relax in the idyllic winter garden setting after sightseeing in the city or settle in for a lunch break after a free walking tour in Berlin. You could also stop by the nearby Literturhaus bookstore for your winter read.
