Spending time in Berlin over Christmas is, without doubt, a magical experience. Here are some of our favourite activities to make the most of the festive season and the cold, wintry weather. Don’t worry, though–you will soon warm up again when you make it back to the cosy comfort of your room at the Gat Point Charlie hotel!
The German capital offers a great variety of Christmas markets. Although it has been far from easy, we have selected four of them for you to discover: the Gendarmenmarkt is the best; Klunkerkranich is the highest; Eco Christmas Market is the greenest; and the coldest is the Lucia Christmas Market.

A walk through the city parks is a fantastic idea at any time of the year, but there is nothing better than enjoying the sun on your face as you stroll through the snow on a beautiful winter’s day.
Apart from the well-known parks such as the Tiergarten or Volkspark Friedrichshain, check out our favourite itineraries for a fresh-air adventure on foot or a bicycle: https://whereis.gatrooms.com/easter-in-berlin-hop-on-a-bike/
During the winter months, Berlin also offers a wealth of other outdoor activities, such as ice skating in Neukölln or tobogganing on Teufelsberf hill.

Last but not least, we have the pleasure of introducing two very special activities to round off your Christmas stay in the city:
• Why not visit an art exhibition in Auguststraße before savouring a delicious cup of hot chocolate in one of the themed cafés in the Mitte neighbourhood?
• An open-air Christmas concert will be held at the traditional Alt-marzahn Advent market on 1 December. For more information, visit https://www.visitberlin.de/en/event/advent-singing-village-green-alt-marzahn
Meanwhile, enjoy the fun winter activities Berlin has to offer and we’ll take care of the rest.
