I can’t believe that it’s been a whole year near enough since I went to Berlin and fell in love with the City. Berlin as a whole is just amazing all year round but in December and at Christmas time it’s just phenomenal because it’s so festive with all of the Christmas Markets that you just have to go.
If you’re anything like me and you love a good ole Christmas Market or just Christmas as a whole you’ll absolutely adore Berlin, basically forget everything you think you know about a good market because what you’ll live, feel and see over seas is 10x better and I mean everything is better. The fairs are better, mulled wine, hot apple cider, Liqour hot chocolates, bratwurst – oh my the bratwurst. I am a massive fan of a good bratwurst anyway but the ones in Berlin are just something else.
You get such a amazing vibe there and all of the people I met are some of the nicest people ever, when me and my friend was lost and confused at the train station this lovely guy that barely spoke any English helped us the best he could without us asking for any help.
There’s just so may different types of markets over there from the more traditional ones, the more famous ones to the ones that juts totally crazy. I did write a post last year on my favourite Christmas Markets in Berlin here so you can get some type of idea on all the different ones, but honestly I didn’t not like any of them. Plus they’re all easy to get too and quite close together which is a massive win win.
I definitely recommend going to Berlin this December even if it’s for a weekend trip on your own because you won’t regret it!
