The cosiest, most colourful, traditional Christmas that you dreamed about as a small child really does exist… Berlin’s Kaiser Wilhelm Gedachtniskirche Christmas Market is a compact network of festive pathways, which glows like some seasonal mirage in the centre of Berlin’s stark modernity. Some stalls are havens of childish delight, selling sweets, toys, tree decorations, cakes and delicious Gluhwein. Others display original artworks, jewellery and gifts, adding an extra level of status and modernity to this particular Christmas Market, now Germany’s largest and most popular. It runs from 22nd November right through to Boxing Day.  For a wide range of accommodation to suit all see our list of choices on The Hotel Guru.
