With traditional Christmas markets, glittering light displays, and Santa’s grottoes dotted around the city, Berlin wastes no time gearing up for the holiday season. Winter in Berlin means ice-skating in Potsdamer Platz, tobogganing down snow-covered Teufelsberg, and checking out festive events, such as the Berlin Illuminated Christmas show held in Friedrichstadt-Palast Theater.

Set against the dramatic backdrops of St Nikolai-Kirche, Schloss Charlottenburg, and Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, Berlin's legendary Christmas markets are an undisputed highlight of the holiday season. Fairy lights and glittering ornaments create a festive atmosphere for browsing the seasonal stalls and their many handcrafted gifts and traditional foods. Take a guided tour of the city's Christmas markets to learn more about the German holiday tradition, while snacking on waffles and sipping on Glühwein (mulled wine)—or opt for a Christmas lights tour of Berlin to view elaborate decorations along Kurfürstendamm Boulevard and illuminated landmarks, such as the Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Cathedral, and Friedrichstadtpalast Theater.
