It’s our favourite time of the year again. Millions of people joyfully swarm through Berlin’s streets, shopping malls and train stations and as always, the city is bursting at the seams. With all the tours we’ve done lately we still haven’t gotten around to buying Christmas presents! Aaahhh! Sometimes I feel ripping my beard off, throwing away my Christmas hat and shooting all the reindeers, but then I remember I’m not Santa and immediately feel better.
However, Berlin actually is a great place to be in the festive season – afterall there’s good reason why there are so many tourists visiting the city this time of the year. We have a huge selection of great Christmas Markets, ranging from traditional, romantic and historic to edgy, funky and super trendy. Yes, even the Christmas Markets have become trendy in the ever growing battle for coolness in Berlin. Beware of the mulled wine stands though, we’re pretty certain these guys have become millionaires over the last years and are just trying to rip us off a little more by the year (but what are we going to do, we need that mulled wine!!!). Then there’s great gift shops all over the city, lots of cool (literally) activities like iceskating right next to Berlin’s hottest nightclubs or a tobbogan run with a view of the Brandenburg Gate. And of course with this many tourists in the city, the nightlife gets even crazier than usual. Once again our party invitation inbox is close to bursting, but… so are we.
The past year has been extremely busy and successful for us and at this point we’re really looking forward to some well earned days off. The next issue of our blog won’t be released before February 2015. We’d like to genuinely thank all our guests, customers, partners and readers who accompanied us throughout the year.. Thank you, we would net haven gotten drunk so often without you!!
Back to business – If you’re in Berlin and haven’t decided on what to do during the festive season yet, here’s our top picks of Christmas markets, entertaining activities and gift shops. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone! <3
