Oh come ye faithful!

This year, we’ve been put to the test well and truly concerning our inclination and capability of giving and doing good. And rightly so. The spirit of giving continues as the wonderful season of Christmas markets begins. During the festive season, Berlin is full of creative markets offering far more than mulled wine: find handmade pieces at Haubentauscher, knickknacks at Klunkerkranich (the city’s highest market), admirables at the Apartment of Freunde von Freunden or beer at Birgit’s to name just a few of our favourites. And it’s not all about the eating and drinking: test your curling skills at Haubentaucher or take part in the workshop for floral arrangements organized by Freunde von Freunden on December 5th. Who knows, maybe you can even do some Christmas shopping while you’re browsing all these lovely markets featuring unusual and dazzling high-quality handmade products, a cosy atmosphere and plenty of live music with concerts, DJs and Berlin’s Kneipenchor (bar choir).
