Berlin In Your Pocket city guide

Berlin In Your Pocket city guide
Although the foreign press like to go gaga over Germany's traditional Christmas Markets, usually held between late November and Christmas Eve, it's the locals that make the more than 60 markets across Berlin come to life. There's a huge variety; crass commercial ones near the main malls, more subtle and upmarket ones near the tourist attractions, and lovely local markets in the suburbs. See our Christmas Markets feature.

If you're here in the new year, make use of frigid, quiet January to take in the exhibitions currently on show in Berlin; perhaps the one about West Berlin at the Ephraim Palais, or the new one about the RAF's terrorist attacks in the 1970s at the Historisches Museum. See our Berlin events listings for more.
