Berlin Christmas Markets

While cities like Nuremberg are more famous for their Christmas markets, two markets I visited in Berlin were also spectacular. Each has a slightly different vibe, with the market at the Berlin Town Hall, near Alexander Platz, a more kid friendly market, with a huge ferris wheel, ice-skating rink, carousel and illuminated moving Santa on a sleigh. On the other hand the beautiful market at Gendarmenmarkt is much more geared for adults, with a plethora of Glühwein stalls, delicious food options, gorgeous handicrafts, live music and a general exuberant atmosphere. Here are some photos from each of them- I hope they help to get you in the festive spirit!
