2. Berlin

Although Berlin has been a united city for more than 25 years, it still remains relatively divided in the sense. There are two city centers, two sides of the city and while everyone gets along splendidly, it usually means there are two of everything. Christmas markets are no different.

One market is held at Alexanderplatz, in the east where the TV tower is, but the most impressive one is the one held in the west at Charlottenburg Palace. You will be in a winter wonderland with this impressive baroque palace behind you and around 250 stalls. Opening November 21 and going as late as December 26, you have ample opportunities to experience this Christmas dream.
