Christkindlmarkt

christmas market 2One of the reasons we braved the winter cold and snow in Berlin was the chance to visit the Christmas Markets. I’ve been to a couple in Japan, or what Japan thought that a German Christmas market should be. But I decided I needed to see the real thing.  What isn’t there to like? Bratwurst, Gluhwein (hot spiced red wine), handmade gifts, and more than enough Christmas spirit to go around. Its pure magic.
