Festive city breaks in Berlin
You’ll be spoilt for choice on Berlin Christmas market breaks – as the city counts down to Christmas, glistening lights, fairy tale wooden chalets and festive decorations adorn every corner. Sample foodie treats or pick up handmade products at Weihnachtszauber am Gendarmenmarkt. Ride the Ferris wheel at Berliner Weihnachtszeit, ideally located near the Park Inn by Radisson Berlin Alexanderplatz. From early November Potsdamer Platz is transformed into a winter wonderland, with a toboggan run, ice skating and curling on offer. Enjoy a ride down the 70-metre slope, before soaking up the ski chalet atmosphere – where a traditional après-ski party vibe can be enjoyed into the evening.
Book Christmas in Berlin
Now it's time to decide what to do in Berlin: go punk or posh.
Take an adventurous stroll through the creepy-cool remnants of a 1960s amusement park. Snap some memorable—and surreal—photos of vintage fiberglass dinosaurs and rollercoaster cars, as you pick your way through overgrown sidewalks.
Warm up or chill out on this floating river barge. Whether cold weather or warm, you can go for a dip in the pool, or relax in its sauna—or play a round of table tennis. Stay past dark to grab a cocktail and listen to the sounds of a live DJ.
