Christmas Eve Cheer

DSC00027Christmas Eve is here and I have forgotten to mention some of the amazing things Berlin has to offer so cozy up with a cup of coffee and get a glimpse of some Christmas Market fun from across the miles. With over 60 Christmas markets to choose from, here are just a few to enjoy.

DSC00108 - Version 2The traditional German carousel hovers over a bar serving beer, eggnog and glühwein.
