On this Christmas season, Berlin`s municipal authorities organized markets around most of the major landmarks: Alexanderplatz, Gendarmenmarkt, Breitsheidplatz, Potsdamer Platz. All of them abounded in traditional German Christmas decorations made of wood or glass, as well as in cosy places like restaurants and food stalls where people could taste gluhwein, delicious marzipan, apple pie, and candy apples. The lit and colourfully painted stars sold as home decorations gave a fairy tale appearance to everything around.

In this article, we cover only the first three markets mentioned.
