December in Berlin

Berlin is a city that never stops, not even for winter. In fact, with the holidays just around the corner, Berlin is livelier than ever! With the warmth of Christmas spirit descending it is easy to get lost in the myriad of programs without a proper guide. So prepare your Stille Nacht, Pub Crawl Berlin is here to show you the way – december events and programs as recommended by us!

First and foremost, in German speaking areas and much of Europe, Christmas usually means one thing: it’s time to open up the enchanting Christmas Markets! Germans are probably one of the best at creating a heartwarming atmosphere in their markets, and Berlin boasts one of the largest ones! Plural. The city has dozens of smaller and larger markets, in fact, you could even make your very own top list of favorite Berlin markets to go to. Make sure you check out Berliner Weihnachtszeit around the Alexanderplatz. The romantic atmosphere will woo anyone!

Done with your pub crawl, checked out Alexanderplatz and still looking for something different? Another awesome thing to check out is the Market of Continents. Opening in late November, this is an interesting take on your usual Christmas Market decor. With more than fifty traders showcasing products from all around the world. In a true journey around the globe you will see crafts, music and culture from all the seven (well maybe not Antarctica, so six) continents!

And when December comes around in Berlin, as a pub crawl service, we are obliged to mention one more thing. Winter in Germany means mulled wine (Glühwein is the magic word). Get a mug at one of the Christmas Markets and fill em’ up! Nothing embodies the Christmas spirit better than wine-red cheeks in a cold evening. Want to impress your German friends?
